DC Universe Responds To SWAMP THING Cancellation And Allays Fears Of Service Shut Down

Despite Swamp Thing's cancellation and WarnerMedia launching its own streaming service, it seems that DC Universe is safe for now. The streaming service, via a moderator, issued a response to the rumors.

The sudden cancellation of Swamp Thing after just one episode sent shockwaves across the internet, resulting in all sorts of speculation and rumors regarding the future of the DC Universe streaming service. With WarnerMedia launching its own streaming service, there's worry that DC Universe might not fit into the company's overall vision. 

DC Universe, via Moderator Applejack in their Watchtower community forum, has issued a response to Swamp Thing's cancellation. Applejack reiterated that the full 10 episode season of Swamp Thing will continue to air on DC Universe, but added there are "no current plans" for a second season. Unfortunately, that's as far as the response went.

"We appreciate there are questions as to "why", but unfortunately we are not in a position to answer at this time," he said. There were reports that miscommunication led to a problem with the tax breaks the show was supposed to receive for filming in North Carolina, which the Director of the North Carolina Film Office, Guy Gaster, directly responded to

Also addressed in the post was the future of DC Universe, and Applejack confirmed that the streaming service continues to develop new shows, seasons, stories and more. "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," he said.

"That's all the information I have to share at this time. Now that you have the goods, we will be going back through the threads and removing the false rumors and speculation that this choice means DC Universe or any of our other original series were affected," the post concluded.

So it seems it's business as usual for DC Universe for the time being. The second half of Young Justince: Outsiders debut in July, with a Harley Quinn animated series starring Kaley Cuoco as the titular character set to premiere in October.
