The Swarm Season 1 Episode 7 Preview: Release Date, Time & Where To Watch

The Swarm Season 1 Episode 7

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. 

Although the series started slow, in our reckoning, and had an uninspired middle part, episode 6 promises to bring all the moving parts of the story together and set up an exciting climactic end to Season 1. 

Here is everything you need to know about The Swarm Season 1 Episode 7, 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 7 Release Date

The Swarm Season 1 Episode 7 will be released on Tuesday, October 24, 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 7, we will be only left with the finale of the show, which will conclude this month itself. 

What happened in Episode 6?

Episode 6 of The Swarm finally probes the existence of an intelligent being in the ocean pulling the strings. Science has thus far failed to provide them with any answers. And the interconnectedness of the maniacal events brings all our protagonists together. Sigur, Charlie, Dr Cecile Roche, Rahim, Leon, and Alicia, all assemble at the IMB in Kiel to pitch their theory to Professor Lehmann. Her endorsement would add a lot of credibility to their proposed research project to confirm their theory. 

But she does not even consider it. Lehmann rejects the idea of suspending her belief system to embrace something so egregiously outside her years of research and training. The ICPO hears Sigur’s presentation but has a similar reaction. They are not convinced enough to fund the project. However, Mfune, who was also listening to the presentation, decides to greenlight the project for the group, believing it to be his responsibility to save the ocean that made him his wealth.
