Swamp Thing Executive Producer James Wan Doesn’t Know or Understand Why It Was Cancelled
After airing just one episode, Swamp Thing on DC Universe was cancelled. That’s despite positive reviews of the show.
We have our theory as to part of the reason, but the series executive producer, and Aquaman director, James Wan seems to not know why either.

Don’t really know or understand why #Swampthing was cancelled, but I can tell you this — all the cast and crew, and producing/writing team poured their hearts into this. Really proud of everyone’s hard work. Go watch episode 2, and immortalize these 10 episodes. Swampy deserves it.
In a post on Instagram, Wan says he doesn’t “really know or understand” why it was cancelled. You can read that many ways, he doesn’t really know or he knows and just doesn’t understand the reasoning.
The series was to run 13 episodes but that was cut short to 10. Rumors have swirled as to why including creative differences, budget issues, too expensive, the future of DC Universe as a whole, to simple not liking it. This is one whose real reason may never be known.
