It looks like Swamp Thing is returning to the swamp. Deadline reports DC Universe has cancelled the TV show after only one season.
The DC series, which just premiered on May 31st, “follows Abby Arcane 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.” The cast includes Virginia Madsen, Andy Bean, Crystal Reed, Will Patton, and Jennifer Beals.
According to Deadline, Swamp Thing is a casualty of AT&T’s recent acquisition of the DC Universe parent company, WarnerMedia. Earlier this year, we reported show’s first season was cut down from 13 to 10 episodes. Now, it seems the future of the entire streaming service may be up in the air as a result of the business acquisition.
