This weekend, a new horror-thriller series titled Swarm is making its way to our television screens! Atlanta‘s Donald Glover created this series alongside TV writer and playwright Janine Nabers. Nabers is probably best known for writing and working on the drama series Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce, but she’s also written episodes of Atlanta, UnREAL, and more.

Swarm‘s seven-episode first season follows a young woman named Dre obsessed with a pop star and an active participant in said pop star’s fanbase, who call themselves “The Swarm.” If all of that sounds a little familiar, you might be thinking of Beyoncé’s “Bey Hive,” which the show seems to take inspiration from. Swarm will explore Dre’s obsession as it takes her to some truly horrifying places while also examining online culture, parasocial relationships, and social media fandom.

Given the writers onboard this project and the positive early buzz, many horror fans are intrigued and excited to check out this new show. Where can you watch it online? Is Swarm available on Netflix?

Is Swarm on Netflix?

Unfortunately no, Swarm is not on Netflix and won’t be anytime soon. The series is not a Netflix Original. It was created by Amazon, so unless Amazon sells the rights to the show someday, then don’t anticipate it coming to Netflix. Luckily, there are plenty of other horror/thriller shows and movies streaming on Netflix that you can check out if you don’t have access to Amazon.

Where to watch Swarm

The only place you can watch Swarm is on Prime Video. You will need a Prime Video subscription to watch the series as it is not available on Amazon’s free service, Freevee. All seven episodes will start streaming at the same time on Friday, March 17, 2023.
