WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - Ian Ziering, who starred in the television series Beverly Hills, 90210, and the Sharknado film series, has been added to the cast of the Wilmington-based television series Swamp Thing.

According to multiple media outlets, Ziering will be a recurring guest start on the series as the character Blue Devil, a stuntman turned hero.

He’s already been spotted in Wilmington.

Swamp Thing stars Andy Bean (Here and Now, Power) as scientist Alec Holland, Derek Mears (The Orville, Sleepy Hollow) as the title character following Holland’s transformation, and Crystal Reed(Teen Wolf and Gotham) as Abby Arcane.

According to an official synopsis of the series, Arcane, a CDC researcher, returns to her childhood home of Houma, Louisiana, in order to investigate a deadly swamp-borne virus and develops a surprising bond with 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, Arcane 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.

Swamp Thing is set to premiere in 2019 and will be available exclusively on DC Universe.
