The first trailer for the new Amazon series Them has been released. Them is a dark anthology show produced by actor Lena Waithe (Westworld, Master of None) and writer Little Marvin.
The first season of Them is titled Covenant. The trailer sets up a seriously spooky atmosphere–it focuses on a Black family who move to the suburbs of Los Angeles in the 1950s. While the family are happy with their new home, their neighbors seem anything but welcoming, despite their smiles. The trailer takes a dark turn towards the end, which suggests the series is going to plunge into pure horror territory. Check it out below:
Them: Covenant is a 10-part series, and it hits Amazon Video on April 9. The show stars Ashley Thomas (Top Boy), Deborah Ayorinde (Harriett), Ryan Kwanten (True Blood), Alison Pill (Devs), and Christopher Heyerdahl (Van Helsing).
Amazon has also released a synopsis for Them, which reads, “Them is a limited anthology series that explores terror in America. The first season, 1950s-set Covenant centers around a Black family who move 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.”
