DC has announced that four new original shows are set to debut on their upcoming digital streaming service, titled DC Universe, which include Swamp Thing, Titans, Young Justice: Outsiders and Harley Quinn, which will join the already announced Superman prequel Metropolis.
The first series that DC has released any details about is Swamp Thing, which is set to be brought to life by James Wan, who will serve as an Executive Producer of the series along with Mark Verheiden (Ash vs. The Evil Dead, Daredevil, Constantine), Gary Dauberman (It, Annabelle: Creation) and Michael Clear (Lights Out, Annabelle: Creation).
Here’s the official description of the show:
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.
Wan’s Swamp Thing series is scheduled to debut in 2019. DC Universe promises to be a first-of-its-kind digital experience designed with DC fans in mind, of which the announced original series will be an exciting part.
