Warner Bros. Digital Networks

A DC Comics monster is headed our way.

A new "Swamp Thing" TV series is due out this year, and we've just gotten our first look. The teaser trailer has hit the internet, and it shows the titular bog monster (Derek Mears) rising from the dark watery depths. It's the stuff of nightmares.

One of the show's cast members, Ian Ziering, shared the teaser via Instagram, and he wrote, "Try draining this Swamp, I dare you." The series will deal with problems in the swamp. Specifically, scientist Abby Arcane (Crystal Reed) will investigate a suspected deadly virus but will find that the marsh harbors even scarier dangers.

Watch the teaser below.
