The final trailer for the upcoming DC show Swamp Thing has been released. This is the latest series from the streaming platform DC Universe, and it hits the service this Friday, May 31.
The final trailer lays out the story and gives us a good idea of what to expect from this horror-themed show. Crystal Reed plays CDC investigator Abby Arcane who is called back to her Louisiana hometown to investigate a mysterious contagion that has affected the whole community. There she meets up with biologist Alec Holland (Andy Bean), and they start to investigate the illness. But there’s something else lurking out there in the swamps, and this trailer shows that the series is set to deliver on the scares. Check it out below.
Swamp Thing also stars Virginia Madsen (Candyman), Jennifer Beals (Flashdance), and Will Patton (Halloween). Derek Mears, who is best known for portraying the iconic killer Jason Voorhees in the 2009 reboot of Friday the 13th, plays the creature. The Conjuring director James Wan is the show’s executive producer.
