Swamp Thing Producers Reportedly Had a 3 Season Arc and Potential Spinoffs Planned
The cancellation of Swamp Thing happened so swiftly that even executive producer James Wan was caught by surprise. DC Universe pulled the plug only a few days after the first episode premiered despite critical acclaim and a warm response from fans. Now, a report from Business Insider has shed some additional light on what could have been if the series had continued.

According to the story, an anonymous source came forward to say that the Swamp Thing producers had a three-season arc. Potentially, Swamp Thing “could have gone past that if it was a hit, with characters spinning off into their own shows. The source used the specific example of a potential Justice League Dark team-up series.”

“Cancellation came as a surprise, 100%,” said the anonymous source; whom Business Insider described as a producer on the series. “We walked away with the sets standing, We didn’t tear them down and go home.”

While the story confirms that cost of Swamp Thing season 1 was somewhere around $85 million, it once again threw shade on the idea that an accounting mistake did the show in. North Carolina gave Swamp Thing a tax rebate of $16.9 million; which was set before production began. Make no mistake, Swamp Thing was apparently a very expensive show to make. To help prove the veracity of this report, Business Insider ran a behind-the-scenes picture of the show’s signature swamp set. That set reportedly cost $2 million by itself.

Although fan sentiment is clearly behind the show, there doesn’t appear to be any chance for Swamp Thing to continue. The remaining eight episodes will continue to run on DC Universe until the end of the season.

Should DC Universe have kept Swamp Thing alive? Let us know in the comment section below!

DC Universe Comments on Swamp Thing’s Cancellation
Swamp Thing’s cancellation took everyone by surprise, including the show’s producers. DC Universe announced last week that they were pulling the plug on the series after airing just one episode. Almost immediately, viewers began speculating about why this decision was made. The streaming service has remained unusually quiet about the whole situation. But for whatever it’s worth, they allowed their community manager to address the show’s confused fanbase.

Via Newsarama, the community manager (using the name “Applejack”) has posted a statement to the service’s official website. S/he doesn’t provide a reason for the show’s cancellation. However, the statement clarifies what’s happening with the remainder of Swamp Thing’s first season.

“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.”

The community manager then reminded viewers that they have “a lot of exciting plans for our other shows in the works.” The staffer also divulged that site moderators “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.” This is likely a direct response to Deadline’s initial report suggesting that DC Universe would be “reevaluated” in the wake of AT&T’s acquisition of Time Warner.
