“Swamp Thing” is coming to The CW!

For those of you who never got a chance to watch producer James Wan’s Swamp Thing series on DC Universe, you’ll be happy to hear that it’s coming to The CW. This series actually got a great first season! It’s a shame that they canceled it before Season 1 even aired.

News of Swamp Thing’s cancelation came before the first season finished airing. However, Swamp Thing had gained such popularity that a movement began on social media, calling for the series to return by using the hashtag, #SaveSwampThing. Swamp Thing currently has a rating of 94% on the review aggregate Rotten Tomatoes.

The show follows Dr. Abby Arcane (Crystal Reed) “as she investigates what seems to be a deadly swamp-born virus in a small town in Louisiana. However, when a mysterious creature emerges from the murky marsh, she finds herself facing the nightmares of a supernatural world where no one is safe.” The series also stars Virginia Madsen, Andy Bean, Henderson Wade, Derek Mears, Maria Sten and Jeryl Prescott.

Swamp Thing was a buzzy pickup for Warner Bros. TV-backed streamer DC Universe. The series, executive produced by James Wan, was the third scripted original picked up for the comic book-focused subscription video platform. Based on the Alan Moore comics, trouble began with the series in April 2019, when the show’s initial 13-episode order was reduced to 10 as the future of DC Universe amid parent company WarnerMedia’s plan for a broad-skewing streamer (HBO Max) emerged.

The CW will be airing the first season of Swamp Thing. It should be noted that a second season has not been officially announced.
