Deadpool: A Taylor Swift Episode Apparently Led To Animated Series’ Cancellation

Those who are hungry for more Deadpool will sadly have to wait…pretty much forever. The animated series from Donald Glover that was set to hit FX won’t ever hit the network, as was revealed recently. In the wake of that cancellation, Glover took to Twitter to post, page-by-page, a 15-page script which was titled as the “finale” episode.

In the script, Deadpool waxed philosophical about why FX decided to cancel them, and among his list of things he brought up a Taylor Swift episode as a potential reason they cut the cord. Deadpool then goes on to say, “No. They had to have loved that script.”

So was Deadpool being real about this, or was it just another fourth-wall-breaking joke that was meant to be forgotten? Well, since the script was very clearly written as recently as this past Tuesday (thanks to its Beyoncé reference), I think a lot of Deadpool’s comments are meant to be taken seriously. This includes the Swift comment. Stephen Glover took to Twitter to pretty much confirm this.

“There really was a Taylor Swift episode. It was HILARIOUS. And it definitely was the last straw lol. Glover went on to say, “We definitely wanted to give Rick and Morty a run for their money and I think we would have. Proud of the gang.”

This tweet has since been deleted, but we can’t help but wonder what other types of episodes pushed FX to the point where a Taylor Swift episode was just too much. Based on the rebellious responses the Glovers have given, I suspect there were plenty of other clashes between them and the network for some time.

Normally, I’d say we’d never know the real story, but the way things have been going, I wouldn’t be surprised if we get a whole firsthand account statement on Twitter tomorrow.
