It looks like filmmaker James Wan is #AllIn on DC. Not only is he directing this year’s Aquaman, but it looks like he’s been developing another project for the unfortunately-named DC Universe streaming service. That series? Swamp Thing.

DC Universe’s official site was launched yesterday, and with it, they revealed logos for their four in-development series, including Swamp Thing. Of the four shows, Swamp Thing was the only new reveal, but what is it? Is it live-action? Animated? Is it a horror? THR has the latest about the show.

It turns out that the series is a live-action drama, and on board to executive produce is Aquaman‘s James Wan. Serving as writers and showrunners are Mark Verheiden (Battlestar Galactica, Daredevil) and Gary Dauberman (IT and IT: Chapter 2).

Here is the synopsis from the outlet:

“The drama follows what happens when CDC researcher Abby Arcane returns to her childhood home of Houma, Louisiana, in order to investigate a deadly swamp-borne virus. There, 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 gone after all.”

James Wan took to Twitter to express his excitement:

It is worth noting that despite the logo being up, it still hasn’t been picked up as a series. As of right now, they are still working on the scripts, and if they are liked, it will be picked up direct to series.
