DC’s Swamp Thing is preparing to emerge from our TV sets, and we now have a new look at what’s in store for us.

The human/plant hybrid creature comes to us with involvement from James Wan. It’s set to air in the US from this Friday – we don’t have a date for Australia as yet.

We do, however, have a new, beefier synopsis: “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. When unexplainable and chilling horrors emerge from the murky marsh, no one is safe.”

Here’s that trailer…
