DC Universe’s Swamp Thing has added The Walking Dead’s Jeryl Prescott to the cast Deadline reveal.
Jeryl, who will be joining Derek Mears, Crystal Reed, Maria Sten and Jennifer Beals, will portray Madame Xanadu, a blind fortune teller with a mysterious past and supernatural perceptions that reveal the future in James Wan’s series.
Characters are based on DC Universe characters created by Len Wein & Bernie Wrightson, with Mark Verheiden and Gary Dauberman penning the script. Lin Wiseman will direct.
“Swamp Thing” centers on CDC researcher Abby Arcane. When she 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.
The series will mysteriously enter your screens in 2019.
