Here's the trailer for Donald Glover's Beyonce-inspired new series, "Swarm."

Donald Glover’s come a long way since his days on Community. His musical ventures have been a massive success that has turned him into one of the most celebrated artists today. However, it’s his ventures in film and television that have turned him into an undeniable force in pop culture. Atlanta had us glued to our television screens weekly for four excellent seasons. Unfortunately, his hit television program came to an end in 2022.

The brilliance of Atlanta was that it captured the realities of the city for aspiring artists. Glover evidently understood this hustle well as an artist himself. However, he recently announced Swarm, which he described as a sister series to Atlanta that follows the story of an obsessed fan who follows their favorite artist across the country. Fans have been anticipating the next move from Glover, which finally received an official trailer this week.

Watch The Trailer For “Swarm” Co-Created By Donald Glover

Following the debut of a brief teaser two weeks ago, Prime Video formally shared the official trailer for Swarm this morning. The clip follows Dre as she dives deeper into her fandom of a music star that bears many similarities to Beyoncé. “She is not like everybody else,” the narrator says in the trailer. “She knows what we’re thinking and she gives it a name. She’s a goddess.” Elsewhere, they describe Dre as being a "killer bee" that's "part of a swarm." The trailer showcases glimpses of Dre’s cross-country trek to see her favorite artist in concert. 

Swarm is co-created by Donald Glover and Janine Nabers, who serves as the showrunner on the series and served as a writer on Atlanta. The show boasts an impeccable cast including Dominique Fishback as Dre, Chloe Bailey as her sister, Marissa, and Snowfall star Damson Idris as Marissa’s boyfriend. Additionally, the show will include cameos from Rickey Thompson, Paris Jackson, Rory Culkin, Byron Bowers, and Kiersey Clemons. However, there roles have yet to be disclosed publicly. Not to mention that Malia Obama also wrote on the show. Swarm drops in its entirety on March 17th on Prime Video. Check the trailer above.
