In the statement, DC Universe confirmed that all 10 episodes of Swamp Thing will air on the streaming service. Though the show was not picked up for a second season, Season 1 episodes will continue to drop weekly.
As to the reason for the cancellation, the statement did not provide any clear answers: "We appreciate there are questions as to 'why,' but unfortunately we are not in a position to answer at this time."
The statement also addressed the rumor that DC Universe is being "reevaluated" by WarnerMedia. "DC Universe continues to develop new shows, new seasons, new stories, more availability, and more platforms," it reassured fans. "We’ve got a lot of exciting plans for our other shows in the works, and look forward to sharing more in the coming months."
Since it launched in 2018, DC Universe has offered subscribers access to thousands of comics, dozens of DC films and shows, including a handful of original series like Titans, Doom Patrol and Young Justice: Outsiders. Although Doom Patrol has not yet been renewed, Titans is currently filming its second season, and a new batch of Young Justice episodes is set to be released on the service this summer. An animated Harley Quinn series and a live-action Stargirl show are expected to debut on the service in the coming months as well.
New episodes of Swamp Thing hit DC Universe on Fridays. The show stars Crystal Reed, Andy Bean, Derek Mears, Jennifer Beals, Henderson Wade, Will Patton, Virginia Madsen, Jeryl Prescott and Kevin Durand. The series is executive produced by James Wan, Mark Verheiden, Gary Dauberman, Michael Clear and Len Wiseman.
