Don’t really know or understand why #Swampthing was cancelled, but I can tell you this — all the cast and crew, and producing/writing team poured their hearts into this. Really proud of everyone’s hard work. Go watch episode 2, and immortalize these 10 episodes. Swampy deserves it.
Also, BusinessInsider spoke to several people who worked behind the scenes on Swamp Thing and apparently the cancellation came out of nowhere. As of reporting, DC Universe has not yet released an explanation for the swift cancellation but there is a theory that is has something to do with parent company WarnerMedia.
What do you think? Have you seen Swamp Thing? Will you watch the rest of the series?
