Will There Be a ‘Swarm’ Season 2?

Donald Glover’s Amazon Studio project Swarm released all its episodes this week on Amazon Prime. Co-created with Atlanta author Janine Nabers, Swarm is a horror-thriller series that stars Dominique Fishback as Dre, a young woman obsessive about a pop star named Ni’Jah. Dre’s own life is filled with disconnect and abandonment, and she or he seems to show to Ni’Jah for meaning and inspiration. But things get twisted pretty fast.

Here’s what we find out about a possible season two for this already popular show.

What’s the plot of Swarm season 2?

The SXSW logline for Swarm season one was: “Murder. Sex. Music.”

That about sums it up! Dre’s story begins with an obsession with Ni’Jah then turns to her life as a murderer following the suicide of her sister, Marissa, played by Chloe Bailey. As Dre’s life unravels, she quickly meets all her conflicts with violence. Glover himself described the series as a “post-truth Piano Teacher mixed with The King of Comedy” to Vanity Fair.

A second season of Swarm would probably retain plenty of the creepy elements that the primary one offered, with more murder — and it might need to involve a jailbreak. The last two episodes of season one present different perspectives on what happens to Dre. Either she is arrested after storming the stage at a Ni’Jah concert, or she is accepted by her idol, invited to sing by her side, after which embraced within the star’s private limo. One in every of those possibilities seems more likely than the opposite.

Will there be a Swarm season 2?

A Swarm season 2 has not been confirmed, however the series is being met with plenty of positive feedback. It probably relies on viewership and if the creators even intend to make one other season. In a way, Dre’s story seems pretty closed and covered in her singular season. But when Dre has plenty of fans, they may need to see her on the loose again.

Swarm is Glover’s first project under his Amazon overall deal, which THR reported was within the eight-figure range, so that they might just let him do whatever he wants.

Who will star in Swarm season 2?

Well, Dre kills plenty of the characters in season one, so we probably won’t be welcoming back most of them unless it’s in flashbacks or another conceit that permits them to return from the dead. Chloe Bailey made a surprise return within the last episode, in any case. Dominique Fishback seems the almost definitely to return as Dre, but Glover could use the vanity of Swarm being about an obsessed fan to explore other features of fandom.
