Less than a week after the first episode of the Swamp Thing premiered on DC Universe, the fledgeling streaming surface suffered a major setback with the news that the horror series has been cancelled, now. While DC Universe will continue to air the remaining episodes, there is already little hope that Swamp Thing will return for more episodes, after.
Swamp Things Cancelled after just one episode premiers
And after the positive reception to the first season, it stands to reason that many fans would be upset that the corporate fat cats at Warner Bros would put their foot down on the Swamp Thing. After the positive reception to the first season, the quick decision to cancel the entire show is seen as a knee-jerk reaction for the fans.
Of course, the DC Universe marketing team has to continue doing their jobs, which entails promoting all of their new offerings that have come across to the streaming service. And because the newest offering also includes the Swamp Thing, a lot of fans are lashing out on the social media channels.
With the cancellation of Swamp Thing so fresh in everyone’s minds, it makes sense that fans would not be happy about any of the promotion surrounding the new series.

Coming or Going?
I notice a lot more under “catch them while you can (leaving)” than “new or returning”. I love you DCU, but that’s somewhat worrisome

Nice try at Damage Control!
Nice try at damage control but already unsubscribed. If Swamp Thing is canceled, no word on Doom Patrol S2, not a fan of Titans and have no interest in Stargirl then 🤷🏾♂️🤷🏾♂️🤷🏾♂️
