DC is working on a live-action Swamp Thing TV series


This is great news. There has been script-to-series order for a live-action Swamp Thing TV show at DC’s new streaming service, DC Universe.

Here is the show’s synopsis.

When CDC researcher Abby Arcane returns to her childhood home of Houma, Louisiana, in order to investigate a deadly swamp-borne virus, she develops a surprising bond with scientist Alec Holland — only to have him tragically taken from her. 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.

Swamp Thing was created by Len Wein and Bernie Wrightson in 1971. Then Alan Moore pumped fresh life into the character back in the 80s. Swamp Thing has starred in a 1982 live-action movie by Wes Craven, along with a previous live-action series from 1990-1993.

There is lots of potential for a great show if they get things right. However, it is yet another new streaming service to add to the ever-growing list. If Swamp Thing does get a full series order it will join the other show in development – The live-action Metropolis and Titans along with the animated series of Harley Quinn and Young Justice: Outsiders.

The show is due in 2019. Mark Verheiden and Gary Dauberman will serve as writers and executive producers. James Wan and Michael Clear will also executive produce via Wan’s Atomic Monster banner. Rob Hackett of Atomic Monster will serve as co-producer. Atomic Monster will produce in association with Warner Bros. Television.

  1. I concur – this sounds great, but jeez, ANOTHER streaming service?!

    • I know. Lots of great shows heading our way, but it does mean paying out for all the different services. Which ones do you go for could end up being a tough decision.
