It seems like just yesterday we were debuting the first episode of the DC Universe’s first live action series Titans. With the first season of Doom Patrol wrapping up soon, it’s almost time their third exclusive live actions series, Swamp Thing. As we know this series went through a a little bit of drama in the last month as production was shut down when the episode count for the series was reduced to ten episodes from the original thirteen planned.
But thanks to the Instagram accounts of two of the series regulars (via comingsoon.net) Virginia Madsen and Henderson Wade, we have learned that production as officially wrapped up on the first season of Swamp Thing, which is ready to make it’s debut at the end of this month. You can check out their posts below!
Also today via DC Universe’s Swamp Thing Twitter account, we have two brand new character posters for the series that feature Crystal Reed’s Abby Arcane and Andy Bean’s Alec Holland. Both characters have their eyes covered and mouths gagged by some sort of plants. You can check them out below!

As we have seen by the trailer as well as some of the images released by DC Universe, Swamp Thing will be taking on a horror tone as we follow Abby, who is investigating what could be a deadly swamp virus in a small Louisiana town. But her investigation leads to the discovery that the swamp has terrifying secrets of it’s own.
Along with Reed, Bean, Madsen and Wade Swamp Thing also stars Will Patton, Maria Sten, Jeryl Prescott, Jennifer Beals, Kevin Durand, Leonardo Nam and Derek Mears. It is based off the classic DC character created by Len Wein and Bernie Wrightson, but inspired by the seminal run by Alan Moore. Len Wiseman will serve as executive producer and will also direct the pilot episode. Co-writing and acting as showrunners for the series are Mark Verheiden and Gary Dauberman. They will also serve as executive producers along with James Wan and Michael Clear.
It seems to be that a mountain was made of a mole hill when it comes to the trouble that Swamp Thing actually found itself in. Titans was also cut short one episode and not much fuss was made of it. As you can see by two posts by Madsen and Wade, they seem very optimistic that the series will be able to continue past it’s first season. But of course that will depend on how the series is received. Luckily, we don’t have to wait for long.
