After only airing one episode of the DC Universe streaming platform, SWAMP THING has been cancelled by the streamer.
The potential reason for the cancellation is that the DC Universe is being reevaluated following the completion of AT&T acquisition of Time Warner as WarnerMedia has put an emphasis on the launch of a new streaming platform. With that reevaluation there have been questions how DC Universe fits into those plans.
Swamp Thing was the third live-action series to launch on DC Universe, following Titans, which has been renewed for a second season, and Doom Patrol, which is awaiting word. Upcoming on the service is new drama series Stargirl.
Written by Mark Verheiden and It co-writer Gary Dauberman, Swamp Thing centered on CDC researcher Abby Arcane. When she returns to her childhood home of Marais, 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.
