The CW picks up ‘Swamp Thing’ from DC Universe after Cancellation

Like rising from the murky depths, Swamp Thing will see new life on The CW network after being abruptly cancelled by Warner Bros.’ DC Universe streaming platform according to The Hollywood Reporter.

As the second series to air on the network coming over from DC Universe, the first being Star Girl, Swamp Thing is based on the DC Comics series of the same name that has previously had two feature films and both a live-action and animated TV series.

Starring Derek Mears as the titular character and Crystal Reed as Abigail Arcane, the series premiered on May 31, 2019 and ran for 10 episodes concluding on August 9.

Just weeks prior to the premier it was announced that production for the series had suddenly stopped due to creative differences with DC Universe’s parent company WarnerMedia, and reduced the original episode plan from 13 episodes to 10.

It is unknown if the acquisition means The CW will guarantee a season 2 for Swamp Thing but it is promising since the series is getting another chance and wider audience that good things will follow.

Since Mark was four years old he has always loved the horror genre, even when his mother would be a good parent and not let him watch such films. It was when he would sneak into the Horror section at the video store called Tommy K's that he would see all of the VHS covers of classics like Friday the 13th and A Nightmare on Elm Street. During his time as a journalism major and news staff writer at Southern CT State University, he had the pleasure of meeting and interviewing paranormal investigator Lorraine Warren before a seminar in 2009 at the Lyman Center on campus.
