Swamp Thing cancelled!

DC Universe has cancelled Swamp Thing just a week after the first episode has aired. The news was broken by Bloody Disgusting, who stated that “the show lost support from executives before it even aired. Additionally, the decision shouldn’t be attributable to budget or performance on DC Universe, but to the WarnerMedia/AT&T executives not liking the direction of the show, says a report from GWW. The cast and crew supposedly received the notification of the cancellation of the series late last night.”
As the story developed it appears the reason executives were not liking what was happening was because North Carolina promised a $40m tax rebate that, due to a paperwork error, they were unable to deliver. That was roughly half the proposed budget for Season 1 (which is estimated at $80m). The plug was then promptly pulled.
#SaveSwampThing is already all over Social Media.
