James Wan bringing Swamp Thing to TV

James Wan bringing Swamp Thing to TV

Swamp Thing has been adapted several times over the years, more notably as a 1982 film written and directed by Wes Craven and in a 1990 as a live-action US network TV series which ran for three seasons.

Are you looking forward to this Swamp Thing series? Or, more accurately, on the newly announced DC Universe.

The service, which has yet to announce a launch date, is described as "a first-of-its-kind, immersive digital experience designed just for DC fans". The series, which is based on the DC characters created by Len Wein and Bernie Wrightson, is expected to premiere sometime in 2019.




The story of the series will follow a researcher with the Center of Disease Control and Prevention named Abby Arcane, who returns to her home town of Houma, Louisiana to investigate the spread of a deadly virus around the Louisiana swamps. "But as powerful forces descend on Houma, intent on exploiting the swamp's mysterious properties for their own purposes, Abby will discover that the swamp holds mystical secrets, both horrifying and wondrous - and the potential love of her life may not be dead after all", reads the official description of Swamp Thing.

Swamp Thing has been a live-action character in the past.

The series will come to us from Atomic Monster productions, with James Wan, director of the upcoming Aquaman, serving as one of the executive producers. But any streaming service is going to a pretty steady flow of original content to keep viewers paying that monthly fee, so what else does DC Universe have in the pipeline? Previously, the comic book version of the character has inspired two movies Swamp Thing (1982) and The Return of Swamp Thing (1989). A USA Network series aired from 1990 through 1993 with a cast that included Mark Lindsay Chapman. There's since been the announcement of an animated Harley Quinn series and a possible Metropolis TV show, too. There was a syndicated TV series that starred big screen Swampy Dick Durock that ran for three seasons.
