Swamp Thing Cancelled After One Season

Well how's this for doomed from the start? After its episode order was already cut down, Swamp Thing has now been axed.

The DC Universe show starring Crystal Reed has only aired one episode on the streaming service, and recieved a good reception from critics and viewers upon its debut last week. However Warner Bros and AT&T Execs are said to have been unhappy with the direction in which the show has taken, and have swiftly pulled the axe.

The show isn't immediately being taken off DC Universe though, with season 1 to air in full on the streaming service but will not return for anymore episodes or seasons after that.

A representative for DC Universe has since issued a statement denying that the future of the streaming platform is in danger;

Hi friends,

A million thanks for your patience. We understand this has not been an easy time for you as fans, and I will do my best to provide you with a satisfying answer.

First, some updates:

The full 10 episode season of Swamp Thing will continue to air on DC Universe with new episodes released weekly. There are no current plans for a Season 2.

We appreciate there are questions as to "why", but unfortunately we are not in a position to answer at this time.

And now, the good news:

DC Universe continues to develop new shows, new seasons, new stories, more availability, and more platforms. We’ve got a lot of exciting plans for our other shows in the works, and look forward to sharing more in the coming months.

That's all the information I have to share at this time. Now that you have the goods, we will be going back through the threads and removing the false rumors and speculation that this choice means DC Universe or any of our other original series were affected.
