The Swarm Season 1 Episode 6 Preview: Release Date, Time & Where To Watch

The Swarm Season 1 Episode 6

The Swarm is a new show making its debut on The CW. The German show is one of the most expensive television productions to come out of the country and is based on Frank Schätzing’s novel of the same name. The Swarm had earlier debuted on ZDF back in February of this year. Owing to the writers’ and actors’ strikes, a lot of networks are going for releases of existing productions.

The Swarm promises to be an exciting sci-fi adventure series that is centred around “the struggle of humankind against an unknown swarm intelligence that lives in the depths of the sea.” We will be covering the entire series with recaps and ending explainers for each episode as they are released. 

Here is everything you need to know about The Swarm Season 1 Episode 6, including its release date, time and where you can watch this.

Where Can I Watch The Swarm?

For our American readers, The Swarm will be available to watch on The CW and also the CW mobile app. The show is already available to stream for audiences outside the US on various platforms such as ZDF and Prime Video. 

The Swarm Season 1 Episode 6 Release Date

The Swarm Season 1 Episode 6 will be released on Tuesday, October 17, at 9 pm ET/PT. Expect the runtime to be around 45 minutes for this episode. You will be able to watch the new episode of The Swarm with subtitles. The episodes in Season 1 do not have specific episode titles. 

How Many Episodes Will The Swarm Have?

The Swarm’s first season will run for a total of 8 episodes. So, after episode 6, we will have another 2 episodes to go that will follow a weekly release schedule, subject to any changes The CW might make in between. We do not expect there to be any major scheduling interruptions. 

What happened in Episode 5?

Episode 5 of The Swarm continues to showcase strange aquatic phenomena and take us closer to the conspiracy brewing in the depths of the ocean. We have finally been brought to a situation where all the different characters in the main narrative try to pool their information together and figure out the interconnected events. The glowing lifeform in the depths of the ocean has everyone concerned. Sigur joins hands with Lehmann and Charlie to investigate the strange occurrences.

Charlie has figured out a possible issue with rising sea temperatures and how they led to the drowning of the Thorvaldsson (almost) and Juno. Cecile has received samples of infected crab from Morocco, which seem to have the same effect as the lobsters in France. It is yet another dangerous mutation that threatens to wade out humans from the ocean. 

We get the first big event of the season in Episode 5 when one of the slopes in the ocean slides due to the unimaginable proliferation of ice worms along the coastline. It triggers a devastating tsunami in regions like Norway and Shetland Island. Tina is unable to make it out in time and is subsumed by the tall wave of the ocean. Sigur and Charlie just about manage to get out and watch in horror as most of the island is consumed.
