Swarm depicts the dark side of the music fandom which has fans going into a frenzy. This is the first Amazon Prime Video’s deal with Donald Grover. This new horror series also features Billie Eilish marking her debut in the acting role.  

This serial killer satire begins its each installment with a cheeky caption, ‘This is not a work of fiction. Any similarity to actual persons, living or dead, or to actual events, is intentional’. To know more details continue reading.

Plot of Swarm

The story starts with Dre or Dominique Fishback in Houston in 2016 who lives in a crappy apartment. She has a much more confident sister Marissa who works a sales job at a mall. Dre spends all her time being obsessed with world famous star Ni’Jah who seems to resemble Beyonce. Dre buys front row tickets with a new credit card which they cannot afford. But she is devastated to learn that Marissa who also used to be one of the Swarm (Ni’Jah collective fan base) members does not want to accompany her and has grown out of it.   

The chief concern of Swarm is Ni’Jah and her super toxic fans which are allegedly depicting Beyonce and her Beyhive. Dre’s extreme reaction to anyone dissing Ni’Jah is clearly used in a metaphorical sense for some television and music fans' extreme reaction to the criticism of their idol.
