So it makes sense that Swamp Thing isn't the cheapest show to film and that WB and DC Universe would want to be able to keep up the high quality that they gave to us in their first episode. The supernatural superhero series, based on the comics by writer Len Wein and artist Bernie Wrightson, has been cancelled merely one week after it premiered on the DC Universe streaming service. This coupled with the WarnerMedia thing means, despite its quality, Swamp Thing will likely float away like so much kelp in a stream.
Wilmington's StarNews indicated the reason the episodes were reduced from 13 to 10 in April was due to creative decisions.
When Swamp Thing entered production, it had secured almost $40 million in tax rebates by shooting in North Carolina.
Swamp Thing stars Andy Bean, Derek Mears, Crystal Reed, Maria Sten, Jeryl Prescott, Virginia Madsen, Will Patton, and Jennifer Beals. "Titans", "Young Justice: Outsiders", and "Doom Patrol" have all received glowing reviews from critics ("Doom Patrol", which recently wrapped up its first season, has an impressive 95% on Rotten Tomatoes). It also speaks bleakly about upcoming shows on the services like the Harley Quinn (animated series) and Stargirl.
