DC Universe Cancels SWAMP THING After Only One Season
Well, looks like I’ll be canceling my DC Universe subscription. The only reason I signed up was for DC’s Swamp Thing series, and after one episode of the series aired, the show has been cancelled! The show will play out the entire 10 episode season, but what’s the point of watching and getting hooked on it if we know that the show has already ended and will not continue!?
The first episode was great, and it looked like it was shaping up to be a great series, but obviously they aren’t going to give the show a shot to succeed. That’s pretty sad. According to Deadline, the “new leadership of WarnerMedia was not particularly high on Swamp Thing whose order was reduced from 13 to 10 episodes in April.”
I also can’t help but think that there is some behind-the-scenes drama going on. Seriously, they didn’t even give the show a chance to succeed or connect with fans. They cancelled it right out of the gate! What a shame.
What do you think about Swamp Thing being cancelled after only one episode?
