The DC Digital Service, DC Universe, will not be picking up another season of “Swamp Thing,” its drama series based on the DC characters created by Len Wein and Bernie Wrightson. The show has been canceled after airing just one episode.
The premiere episode debuted on May 31st, and with the newly announced AT & T acquisition of Time Warner as WarnerMedia, it seems it’s causing the company to reevaluate the streaming service altogether.
According to Deadline, there already had been chatter that new leadership of WarnerMedia was not particularly fond of “Swamp Thing,” whose original order was reduced from 13 to 10 episodes in April.
Although the cancellation comes just one episode into the show’s run, the nine remaining episodes will air as scheduled, with a new one debuting on DC Universe each Friday until the Aug 2 finale.
”Swamp Thing” was the third live-action series to launch on DC Universe, according to the publication, following ”Titans,” which has been renewed for a second season, and ”Doom Patrol,” which is awaiting word. Upcoming on the service is the new drama series ”Stargirl.”
