DC Universe Cancels SWAMP THING Series

Bringing you the best in Horror Movie News, and all things Horror.

Well only one episode into its first season, SWAMP THING has been canceled by the DC Universe streaming service. Deadline and Entertainment Weekly, report that DC Universe has decided not to move forward with SWAMP THING, which premiered on the streaming service on Friday, May 31st.

Warner Bros. has not made coment on the cancellation, but Deadline reports that the streaming service is being "reevaluated" following the "AT&T acquisition of Time Warner."

Back in April, StarNews reported that the show's previously planned 13-episode first season had been cut down to 10.

Based on the character created by Len Wein and Bernie Wrightson, the new SWAMP THING series was executive produced by James Wan, Mark Verheiden, Gary Dauberman, Michael Clear, and Len Wiseman.

The series stars Derek Mears as the titular character, with Andy Bean playing Alec Holland, the human version of Swamp Thing. The cast also includes Will Patton, Virginia Madsen, Henderson Wade, Kevin Durand, Andy Bean, Crystal Reed, Jeryl Prescott, Maria Sten, and Ian Ziering.

In addition to executive producing the series, Verheiden and Dauberman co-wrote the first episode, which is directed by Wiseman.

"SWAMP THING 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. When unexplainable and chilling horrors emerge from the murky marsh, no one is safe."
