A new teaser for DC Universe's Swamp Thing TV series has surfaced from the murky depths below and this one is aiming to give a warm welcome to Alec Holland, the scientist whose experiments lead him to eventually becoming the titular monster, as portrayed by Andy Bean. The actor will also soon be appearing in It: Chapter Two, so he is no doubt a familiar face for horror fans at the moment. Give the new teaser a watch above and read on for more details on the upcoming television series.
Based on the DC characters originally written and drawn by Len Wein and Bernie Wrightson, Swamp Thing will follow Abby Arcane as she investigates some kind of swamp-born virus in a small Louisiana town. She soon discovers that the swamp holds mystical and terrifying secrets that soon prove no one is safe as unexplainable and chilling horrors emerge from the marsh.
Starring in the series is Andy Bean (It: Chapter Two) as Alec Holland, the scientist who transforms into the titular monster, Derek Mears (Jason Voorhees in 2009's Friday the 13th) as Swamp Thing himself, and Crystal Reed (Teen Wolf) as CDC researcher Abby Arcane. The cast also includes Ian Ziering as Daniel Cassidy, Jennifer Beals as Sheriff Lucilia Cable, Maria Sten as Liz Treymane, Will Patton as Avery Sunderland, Virginia Madsen as Maria Sunderland, and Jeryl Prescott as Madame Xanadu.
Swamp Thing is executive produced by Mark Verheiden and Gary Dauberman, both of whom wrote the first episode, alongside Wan, Len Wiseman, and Michael Clear. Wiseman also directs the first installment. The series will premiere on the DC Universe streaming platform on May 31st.
