"Virginia Madsen (@madlyv) joins #DCUSWAMPTHING as Maria Sunderland. Welcome to the #DCUNIVERSE," the DC Universe Twitter feed said in an announcement about the "Sideways" and "Designated Survivor" actress's casting on Thursday.

"Gotham" alum Crystal Reed was cast in September as Abby Arcane in the Louisiana-set, supernatural drama.

Deadline.com said the show is slated to debut in 2019.

No other casting has been announced yet.

James Wan, Mark Verheiden, Gary Dauberman and Michael Clear -- the team behind the horror hits "The Conjuring," "It" and "Annabelle" -- are adapting the comic-book property for the new DC Universe digital subscription service, which is the home of "Titans."

Len Wiseman -- whose credits include "Sleepy Hollow" and the "Underworld" franchise -- is directing "Swamp Thing."
