DC Cancels Swamp Thing
TV Line reports that the show has already been cancelled after the first episode and won’t go past the first season. No official word has been released by the people from Warner or DC Universe regarding the cancellation. This really is a shock because the show has generated positive buzz and would definitely get more people to watch it when the buzz continues.
Here’s one possibility though as to why DC Cancels Swamp Thing:
Speculation that an accounting error by the state of North Carolina that cut the show’s tax rebate led to the show’s sudden cancellation has not been confirmed. Back in April, a miscommunication by the North Carolina legislature almost wiped away the state’s film budget, but the mistake was resolved, reported the North Carolina Star. In fact, the North Carolina Department of Commerce announced earlier this week that Swamp Thing was eligible for $12 million in grant funding, roughly four million less than it originally requested.
I really hope that this isn’t the case for Swamp Thing. There’s a lot of potential fans and readers that need to learn about the character and the rich history it has. Can we launch a petition already?
