Watch: DC Comics releases eerie new teaser trailer for ‘Swamp Thing’

DC Comics is set to release the new series on Friday

Swamp Thing is a new superhero drama-horror television series that will premiere this Friday. This series will be based on the comic series created by writer Len Wein and artist Bernie Wrightson. Executive producer James Wan is on board for the project, who’s well known for his work in horror films like Insidious, The Conjuring and DC’s own Aquaman.

Taking place in small-town in Louisiana, Abby Arcane, a CDC doctor, returns to her hometown to investigate a deadly swamp-borne virus with the help of scientist Alec Holland. The two form a bond, until Holland tragically dies and the cause of his death becomes a total mystery. Arcane discovers that the swamp virus may have been the cause, and that Holland may still be alive after all.
