Swamp Thing Canceled After One Season

-

That was quick. Only one episode has aired on DC Universe, but Swamp Thing has already been canceled by the streaming service. There had been rumors that the production was cut short due to creative differences, with DC Universe parent company WarnerMedia cutting the episode order from 13 to 10. DC Universe will still air the full 10-episode season.

Swamp Thing, which premiered on DC universe on May 31, follows Abby Arcane (Crystal Reed) as she investigates what seems to be a deadly swamp-born virus in a small town in Louisiana but soon discovers that the swamp holds mystical and terrifying secrets. When unexplainable and chilling horrors emerge from the murky marsh, no one is safe.

The series also stars Virginia Madsen, Andy Bean, Henderson Wade, Derek Mears, Maria Sten, Jeryl Prescott, Ian Ziering, with Jennifer Beals and Will Patton, and featuring a special appearance by Kevin Durand.

The series is based on the DC characters originally written and drawn by Len Wein and Bernie Wrightson.

James Wan, Mark Verheiden, Gary Dauberman, Michael Clear and Len Wiseman are the executive producers. Rob Hackett is co-producer. The series is produced by Atomic Monster in association with Warner Bros. Television. Verheiden and Dauberman wrote the first episode, which was directed by Len Wiseman.

While the Swamp Thing cancellation is certainly a shocker, three other shows met the same fate earlier this week. SYFY decided to cancel Happy! after two seasons and Deadly Class after one season. Amazon Prime Video also canceled Sneaky Pete after three seasons.

As far as DC Universe, it will be interesting to see what happens to the service, as WarnerMedia is planning on launching its own streaming service. Will some of the shows be absorbed into the bigger platform or will DC Universe remain?
