A full trailer for DC's Swamp Thing has arrived just in time to get fans excited for its premiere on Friday.

In the trailer, we see a town descend into chaos as many citizens become inflicted with a disease that causes plant life to grow from their bodies. An investigation of the disease leads CDC investigator Abby Arcane (Crystal Reed) to a mysterious Louisiana swamp.

Based on all the footage we've seen so far, Swamp Thing is going to be full of horror elements for which executive producer James Wan is known. The series marks the second time Wan has worked on a DC project, as he also directed 2018's Aquaman.

The series will premiere on the DC Universe, joining the streaming service's other original shows, Doom Patrol and Titans. However, it has been reported that Swamp Thing will not take place in the same shared universe as its predecessors.

Swamp Thing is based on a comic series of the same name created by writer Len Wein and artist Bernie Wrightson.
