The digital platform DC Universe announced today they will not be renewing SWAMP THING for a second season. The new comic-horror series has only aired one episode when the news dropped. The remaining episodes will air in their entirety.
James Wan produces the series along with Warner Bros. Television. The series is based on the DC comic of the same name which was created by Len Wein and Bernie Wrightson.
It’s being reported DC Universe is being reevaluated by Warner Media since they were recently acquired by AT&T and some sources have said that Swamp Thing and DC Universe might not fit into their plans.
Swamp Thing centers on CDC researcher Abby Arcane (Crystal Reed). When she returns to her childhood home of Houma, Louisiana, in order to investigate a deadly swamp-borne virus, she develops a surprising bond with scientist Alec Holland (Andy Bean) — 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.
Virginia Madsen, Henderson Wade, Maria Sten, Jeryl Prescott and Will Patton co-starred. Verheiden and Dauberman executive produced with Atomic Monster’s James Wan and Michael Clear, while the company’s Rob Hackett served as co-producer.
