DC Universe’s cancelled Swamp Thing will be making its way over to The CW for the network’s fall lineup.
One of the most beloved series to come out of DC’s pantheon of characters was Swamp Thing, which made its debut on DC Universe, was cancelled just days after it made its premiere. In just ten episodes, Swamp Thing became beloved by thousands of DC fans and even won the love of critics. Praised for its fantastic atmosphere and heavy dose of scares, Swamp Thing‘s cancellation led many fans bewildered at the decision. For those who never got the chance to see the DC Universe show, the horror series will be heading to The CW for the network’s fall lineup.
Deadline reports that The CW, the home for DC’s Arrowverse, will be acquiring the DC Universe show to add more weight to its upcoming fall lineup. This decision isn’t odd for The CW as they’ve previously acquired the rights to air other shows during the summer. In fact, Swamp Thing himself appeared in The CW’s Arrowverse crossover Crisis On Infinite Earths earlier this year, further solidifying the relationship between the show and the network.
Fans might be wondering if this means that there will be new Swamp Thing episodes coming out of The CW, which certainly isn’t the case, as the network will only be airing the episodes that can be found on DC Universe. At this current junction, no airdate or time has been announced for the DC series for its network premiere.
