The third live-action series to launch on DC’s streaming service, “Swamp Thing” is based on comic book characters created by Len Wein and Bernie Wrightson. The series stars Crystal Reed as Abby Arcane, a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention researcher who returns to her childhood hometown to investigate a deadly swamp-born virus.
There, she becomes close to fellow scientist Alec Holland (Andy Bean) before tragedy strikes. Swamp Thing is portrayed by Derek Mears.
The nine remaining episodes of the show’s first season will air as planned. A new “Swamp Thing” episode will debut weekly on Fridays on the DC streaming service through the Aug. 2 finale.
