Nearly a year ago, DC broke the news that they were canceling the series “Swamp Thing“. News has come that CW has picked up the rights and is planning to air the series on its network. And we can’t help but wonder if maybe the classic comic book character is still lurking in the swamp, ready to return.

Swamp Thing” centers on CDC researcher Abby Arcane. When she 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.”

The James Wan produced series stars Derek Mears who plays the role of Swamp Thing, Crystal Reed, Jennifer Beals, Virginia Madsen, Will Patton, Kevin Durand, Ian Ziering, Henderson Wade, Maria Sten, Jeryl Prescott, and Cuyle Carvin (interview).

Directors of the show, inspired by the comic by Len Wein and Bernie Wrightson, include E.L. Katz and Len Wiseman. “Swamp Thing” is written by Mark Verheiden (Ash vs Evil Dead) and Gary Dauberman (IT).

Rated “R” for violence, “Swamp Thing’s” CW premiere date has yet to be announced. We’ll keep you posted.
