Adding to its growing roster of scripted programming, The CW Network announced today the acquisition of SWAMP THING, based on the iconic DC character.

SWAMP THING (one season) will make its network television debuts on The CW Network and stream for the first time on The CW's free, ad-supported digital platforms. Premiere dates and times will be announced later.

SWAMP THING follows Dr. Abby Arcane (Crystal Reed, "Gotham," "Teen Wolf") as she investigates what seems to be a deadly swamp-born virus in a small town in Louisiana but when a mysterious creature emerges from the murky marsh, she finds herself facing the nightmares of a supernatural world where no one is safe. The series also stars Virginia Madsen ("Sideways," "Dune"), Andy Bean ("Power," "It: Chapter Two"), Henderson Wade ("Riverdale," "Extant"), Derek Mears ("The Flash," "Predators"), Maria Sten ("Persuasion," "Channel Zero") and Jeryl Prescott ("The Walking Dead," "Ray Donovan") with Jennifer Beals ("Flashdance," "The L Word") and Will Patton ("Falling Skies," "Halloween").

Based on the DC characters created by Len Wein and Bernie Wrightson, SWAMP THING is produced by Atomic Monster in association with Warner Bros. Television. The series is executive produced by James Wan ("Aquaman," "The Conjuring" films), Mark Verheiden ("Battlestar Galactica," "Constantine"), Gary Dauberman ("It" and "Annabelle" films), Michael Clear ("The Nun," "Annabelle: Creation") and Len Wiseman ("Lucifer," "Sleepy Hollow").

I agree with both of you, the best part for me was seeing Swamp thing and Adrien Barbeau. Hope they pick back up with a better second season. Bring in Solomon Grundy,

I liked this show at first but it really started to kind of suck after a bit. Crystal Reed, something about her just isnt good in this show. The guy that plays the scientist also overplays his part and is not great. He was the guy that played the blob in one of the xmen movies. I do hope they continue and maybe it gets better since that cliffhanger and set up at the end of the last episode tho. It was starting to have potential with that.

Hoping this "rebroadcast" gets the show good enough ratings for a second season.
