It has been more than two decades since we last saw a live action series featuring the environmental hero Swamp Thing. DC Universe shows that the character is still relevant by bringing him back in a brand new series that seems to be upping the horror factor. See for yourself in the first trailer for Swamp Thing, set to premiere May 31 on DC Universe.
Premise: Abby Arcane returns home to Houma, Louisiana to investigate a deadly swamp-borne virus, where she develops a bond with scientist Alec Holland. After Holland tragically dies, Arcane discovers the mysteries of the swamp and that Holland may not be dead after all.
Swamp Thing stars Andy Bean and Derek Mears as Alec Holland / Swamp Thing, Crystal Reed as Abby Arcane and Jeryl Prescott as Madame Xanadu.
Swamp Thing was featured in two theatrical films in the 1980s, a live-action 1990s television series, and a five-part animated series, among other media.
