DC Universe announced that Swamp Thing won’t return for Season 2. The series is being canceled, one week after the pilot episode aired. Frankly, we are frustrated since we were sure of renewal. Unfortunately, we were wrong believing that Swamp Thing Season 2 was due to happen. But that doesn’t mean it’s never going to happen, It just means it’s not coming now.
Will there be a season 2 of Swamp Thing?
DC Comics, Inc. (‘Batgirl, Black Superman‘) made a bold step when decided to create their own video-on-demand service in cooperation with Warner Bros. Digital Networks. As a result, many superhero series have found their home in the DC Universe. Swamp Thing is a good example how the top-rated web series should look like. That’s why we have no doubt that the DC’s owned streaming service is about to pick up Swamp Thing for another round.
Swamp Thing Season 2 is due to happen because of such an excellent response from the target audience, which the superhero web series has received from critics and viewers. On Rotten Tomatoes, Swamp Thing Season 1 holds a score of 7.32/10 and a 92% approval rating from critics. On Metacritic, the freshman has received the universal acclaim, with a score of 69/100 and a 7.7/10, among critics/viewers, respectively. On IMDb, Swamp Thing holds a high score of 7.5/10 based on over 22k votes (as of today). That’s why we tend to believe that Swamp Thing should return for a Season 2 on DC Universe.
Besides, also worth noting that DC Universe has just a few web series in their media library. And since Swamp Thing debuted to universal acclaim, it could be the only right decision to pick up the superhero web series for another season, guided by common sense, isn’t it?
According to the reports from “Deadline”, Mark Pedowitz, CEO of CW has confirmed that ‘Swamp Thing’ will most likely not come back for season 2. Mark said that he was elated with the success of ‘Swamp Thing’.
Nonetheless, in any case, even despite we believe that Swamp Thing Season 2 is just a matter of time, we will have to wait for the official announcement since we used to rely on reliable data.
Swamp Thing Season 2 Release Date Predictions
As mentioned above, we don’t rule out the possibility of renewal, and even, on the contrary, tend to believe that Swamp Thing would return for Season 2. Therefore, in case of a positive decision on renewal, we assume that there could be two possible periods for the upcoming premiere, this fall, or next spring. Given the current schedule of the series.
Perhaps you know that DC Universe has reduced the number of episodes for the 1st season of Swamp Thing, as a result, the debut season would contain ten episodes instead of the initial thirteen. In our opinion, the broadcaster opted to reduce the number because they want to cut the production cycle, and thereby have more time to release the second season by this fall.
However, in any case, you should take into account that all the data above is nothing but our forecast. We are tracking down all the news which arrives from the DC Universe. As soon as the broadcaster publishes any official data on the subject of Swamp Thing Season 2, we will update this page. So guys, stay tuned for updates. We will keep you informed.
