Are you upset that Swamp Thing won't be returning for a second season?
Things seemed rocky with Swamp Thing after Warner Bros. As part of the latter news, a slightly different number was mentioned for Swamp Thing, specifically $4.99 million in requests for the pilot alone, plus an additional $16 million.
Poor Swamp Thing. We hardly knew ye.
To give up on the show due to budgetary reasons despite how well its been received and how much the fans and actors have already fallen in love and gotten on board with it is an especially bad decision given the overall niche nature of DC Universe.
Though initial rumors indicated that the dreaded "creative differences" were the reason behind the cancellation of the show, a rapidly passed around viral Twitter thread pointed to another reason for the possible shortening of the season, as well as DCU not picking up the show for Season 2.
This isn't the first time controversy has surrounded the show.
A clerical error. That's evidently why Swamp Thing cut its final three episodes and presumably why it won't get a season two. There have been questions how DC Universe fits into those plans. This helped DC Universe offset what became an $80 million first season.
Business Insider has reached out to DC Universe for comment. Definitely not. Personally, I can't help but wonder if the weekly release schedule for new episodes of DC Universe's television shows isn't partially to blame for their under-performance. Seems like executives were anxious about the series' direction and lost faith in the project's ability to attract viewers to the fledgling streaming service.
