The official synopsis for the series is as follows:
Swamp Thing follows Abby Arcane as she investigates what seems to be a deadly swamp-born virus in a small town in Louisiana but soon discovers that the swamp holds mystical and terrifying secrets. When unexplainable and chilling horrors emerge from the murky marsh, no one is safe.
Mark Verheiden and Gary Dauberman have co-wrote the script and serve as showrunners and executive producers for the live-action drama, with James Wan serving as executive producer alongside Michael Clear under Atomic Monster banner, with Rob Hackett serving as a co-executive producer. Len Wiseman will serve as an executive producer as well as be the director the first episode.
Today media outlets were reporting on the article from a local outlet in North Carolina that production the series has halted, meaning the series will now have ten episodes for its first season instead of the initial thirteen. The plan now is to re-write the tenth (now final) episode to make a satisfying conclusion to the season. According to the local outlet’s sources, the reason behind this is mostly from a financial point of view as WB decide the fate of the streaming service.
Swamp Thing will premier on the streaming service on the 31st May 2019.
