Not gonna lie — we’re SHOOK.
The official trailer for season one of the new terror anthology series, Them, is available now. From breakout creator Little Marvin, the ten-episode Amazon Original series premieres exclusively on Amazon Prime Video Friday, April 9, 2021. Them is a limited anthology series that explores terror in America.
The 1950s-set first season centers on a Black family who moves from North Carolina to an all-white Los Angeles neighborhood during the period known as The Great Migration. The family’s idyllic home becomes ground zero where malevolent forces, next-door and otherworldly, threaten to taunt, ravage and destroy them.
Them stars Deborah Ayorinde, Ashley Thomas, Alison Pill, Shahadi Wright Joseph, Melody Hurd, and Ryan Kwanten.
The series is created and executive produced by Little Marvin along with executive producers Lena Waithe, Miri Yoon, and Roy Lee of Vertigo Entertainment, David Matthews, and Don Kurt. Them is a co-production from Sony Pictures Television and Amazon Studios.
In a recent interview, Little Marvin gushed about his love for psychological horror films. “I always wanted to put a Black family, frankly, at the heart of the kinds of stories I love the most, the classic kinds of horror movies that I never saw us centered in,” he shared.
We had the privilege of screening a few of the episodes early and we have to say this trailer only scrapes the surface of how scary this show is. Don’t watch this one alone. Them is locked in for two-seasons with Amazon, so strap in because you’re definitely in for one wild ride. We’re not kidding. And by the way, that little girl Melody Hurd is a STAR. The whole cast is an ensemble but whew…
