DC Comics has announced that Swamp Thing, its third live-action series on its streaming service DC Universe, will premiere on May 31st.
The company made the announcement at WonderCon in Anaheim, California, DC and it also provided the first look at its fourth upcoming series, Stargirl, and says that the company’s entire digital comics library will be added to the service for users in April.
The streaming service is a one-stop-shop for almost all of DC’s content and includes access to existing DC film and TV adaptations, comic books, and original live-action and animated shows.
Swamp Thing is the next live action show from the company and is set in the same world as Titans and Doom Patrol. It follows Abby Arcane (Crystal Reed), an investigator for the CDC as she visits an epidemic in her hometown in Louisiana, along with her fellow scientist Alex Holland (Andy Bean).
Arcane soon discovers that the local swamps hold numerous secrets after Holland seemingly dies and transforms into the show’s titular creature (portrayed by Derek Mears).
Aquaman director James Wan is one of the show’s executive producers, alongside Mark Verheiden, Gary Dauberman, Michael Clear, and Len Wiseman (who directed the pilot).
