DC’s ‘Swamp Thing’ series will not be returning for a second season, sources close to the show tell The GWW.
The decision seemingly boils down to WarnerMedia/AT&T executives not liking the direction of the show, not budget or performance on DC Universe (which we hear is solid). One source even says an executive wanted it to be more like the CW shows. Cast and crew were notified late last night. The rest of the first season will continue to air on DC Universe.
The news comes after production on the 13-episode series was halted after just 10 episodes were filmed. Its future at DC Universe was unsure, and different networks (including the CW and HBO) looked at picking it up.
‘Swamp Thing’ hails from Mark Verheiden & Gary Dauberman, and stars Crystal Reed, Andy Bean, Derek Mears, and Virginia Madsen. The first episode is available now on DC Universe.
