Business Insider reports DC Universe’s Swamp Thing was initially had a possible three-season arc plan with the potential for spin-offs before the series was canceled.
Last week, DC Universe fans stunned fans with the cancellation of Swamp Thing less than one week after the series premiered on the streaming. News of the cancelation reportedly came as a surprise to cast and crew even after production was abruptly shut down in April and the 13-episode season order was reduced to 10.
Now, a source close to the production of Swamp Thing has reportedly informed Business Insider the DC Universe series originally had a possible three-season arc planned. Furthermore, the feeling on set was it could extend beyond that if Swamp Thing was a hit while characters could have received their own spin-offs. The source reportedly used the example of a Justice League Dark team-up series.
