Deep in the swamps of Louisiana lurks a large, green humanoid creature draped in wet moss, wood shrubs, and tree bark.

Check out the first official teaser for "Swamp Thing," the new original streaming series on DC Universe, which is inspired by the iconic DC comic book character created by Len Wein and Bernie Wrightson.

"Swamp Thing," a superhero-horror drama that's executive produced and written by television producer-writer Mark Verheiden (Timecop, Battlestar Galactica, Falling Skies) and horror screenwriter Gary Dauberman (Annabelle, IT), is the latest comic-book live-action series to be exclusively produced for DC's new streaming service, DC Universe, following last year's flagship show "Titans" and this year's "Doom Patrol."

Running about 40 seconds long, the teaser reveals a dark murky swamp congested with low-hanging fog and mist. The camera pushes in as we see something is emerging from the swamp waters. First, a silhouette of a head, and then we see the upper portion of a body as it slowly rises from the murk. Of course, it's our first look at Swamp Thing, a scary-looking creature who was once a brilliant biologist but is now a defender of Louisiana's wetlands.

The series will star Andy Bean (Starz's Power), Crystal Reed (FOX's Gotham), and stuntman actor Derek Mears (Jason Voorhees) with appearances by Virginia Madsen, Will Patton, Kevin Durand, and Jennifer Beals.

According to recent news, "Swamp Thing" was just cut from 13 episodes to 10 episodes, as the show's production was halted at the last minute, reportedly, because of creative differences between producers and the studio.

Nevertheless, the series is expected to keep its premiere date, which is set for May 31st, only on DC Universe.

Based on the DC characters originally written and drawn by Len Wein and Bernie Wrightson, SWAMP THING, a new DC Universe original series, follows Abby Arcane (Crystal Reed) as she investigates what seems to be a deadly swamp-born virus in a small town in Louisiana but soon discovers that the swamp holds mystical and terrifying secrets. When unexplainable and chilling horrors emerge from the murky marsh, no one is safe.
