HBO Max Passed On GREEN ARROW AND THE CANARIES; Season 2 Of SWAMP-THING Definitely Not Happening
The CW recently passed on Green Arrow and the Canaries, but those of you hoping it might find new life on HBO Max will be disappointed. It also appears the door is closed on Swamp-Thing continuing...
Moving forward, Warner Bros. is making HBO Max a priority for DC content, with every upcoming movie's spinoff potential considered by the studio. That's why we're getting Peacemaker and "Gotham Central," small screen stories that spin out of The Suicide Squad and The Batman.
The DC TV shows on HBO Max won't only be set in the DC Extended Universe, though, hence why many Arrow fans have been holding out hope that Green Arrow and the Canaries might end up there. The CW recently passed on the spinoff series, but it turns out the streamer isn't interested, either.
"The HBO Max option was already thoroughly explored, I hear, especially as leadership shifted over there," reveals TV Line, "and that is why the final 'cancellation' decision took as long as it did. No dice."
It's possible the characters could appear elsewhere in The CWVerse, but the door has clearly been closed on this trio of female heroes starring in their own series.
After originally airing on the DC Universe app, Swamp-Thing's first season has found a home on The CW. It's received a great response there, but any hopes of the network reviving it for a second batch of episodes after its cancellation have been dashed in the same article.
"Considering how quickly DCU pulled the plug, and then factoring in that the sets are long gone and any cast contracts are quite expired, sources tell me that all signs point to a Season 2 not happening, anywhere," the site confirms, closing the door on the show having a future.
So, not a positive update, but we've managed to clear up the future (or lack thereof) of both series.
