Swamp Thing Cast: Who is in it?
‘Swamp Thing’ stars Andy Bean and Derek Mears as Alec Holland and Swamp Thing respectively. You must already know Bean from his character portrayal of FBI agent Greg Knox in the drama series ‘Power‘. On the other hand, actor and stuntman Mears is best known for his reprisal of Jason Voorhees in ‘Friday the 13th‘ reboot and Hawes in ‘Hatchet III’.
Crystal Reed plays the role of Abby Arcane. She is an actress and model, widely recognized for her appearances in ‘Teen Wolf’ and ‘Gotham‘. Maria Sten features as the newspaper reporter Liz Tremayne, Jeryl Prescott enacts the character of psychic Madame Xanadu, Virginia Madsen plays Maria Sunderland, Will Patton features as Avery Sunderland, Henderson Wade is Matt Cable, and Kevin Durand portrays Jason Woodrue. Jennifer Beals, Ian Ziering, and Leonardo Nam appear in other recurring roles.
DC Universe’s ‘Swamp Thing’ may be a superhero series, but it is successful in throwing in a great deal of eerie fantasy and horror elements into the mix. There’s also this dark romance arc between Holland and Arcane, which somehow feels connected to the theme of ‘Beauty and the Beast‘. So if you wish to witness a superhero drama, where superhumans are not clad in shiny bodysuits, or if you are a fan of supernatural surrealism, then this show is definitely a recommendation from our side.
Swamp Thing Season 2 Release Date: When will it premiere?
‘Swamp Thing’ season 1 premiered on DC Universe on May 31, 2019. Comprising a total run of 13 episodes in the first season, the show was expected to be a big part of the platform’s streaming slate. We already know that the franchise’s first live-action film by Wes Craven is still a cult classic. And hence, everyone was hopeful that the series will see an elongated run. After all other DC Shows such as ‘Titans‘, ‘Doom Patrol‘, and ‘Young Justice‘ have seen several seasons.
Unfortunately for the fans, DC surprisingly announced cancellation of the show. After the news broke in June, Derek Mears, told Digital Spy that “it’s a weird nebulous space that we’re all in now because we don’t know officially why that would happen, or why they cancelled it.” Mears expressed his frustration saying, “Even if you are going to cancel it, wouldn’t you wait until later on to see how it plays with fans before? So, something’s going on somewhere.”
Despite the cancellation, there’s still some hope that DC reconsiders its decision show at some point in future. If that happens, we will update you about ‘Swamp Thing’ season 2 release date.
