DC Universe’s Swamp Thing may have been canceled before its one and only season had even aired, but the series is finding a new life on The CW—and the network has released a striking new poster to celebrate.
Swamp Thing follows CDC researcher Abby Arcane as she returns to her childhood home of Houma, Louisiana to investigate a deadly swamp-borne virus. There, she forms a strong bond with scientist Alec Holland, who is tragically taken from her. But the swamp holds horrifying and wondrous secrets… And Arcane’s lover may not be dead after all.
Derek Mears (Predators) plays the titular Swamp Thing in the series, which was co-written by Mark Verdeiden (Ash vs. Evil Dead) and Gary Dauberman (It). The cast also includes Crystal Reed (Teen Wolf), Virginia Madsen (Candyman), Jennifer Beals (The Bride), Will Patton (Halloween), Andy Bean (It Chapter Two), Kevin Durand (The Strain), Jeryl Prescott (The Walking Dead), Henderson Wade (Extant), Maria Sten (Channel Zero), and Ian Ziering (Sharknado).
Swamp Thing will air on The CW this autumn.
