James Wan Doesn’t Understand Why Swamp Thing Was Canceled

Swamp Thing was one of those series that had a lot going for it. In addition to James Wan, the master of horror, being one of the executive producers, it seemed to have a lot of people on board who understood the source material and were determined to realize it for the small screen. And that trailer that hit? While it didn’t exactly drive me to subscribe to DC Universe, it was the most interesting-looking original series they had.

But then the cancellation came. We had heard tales of production being cut short and of the network reducing the number of episodes in the season, but if it performed well, it could lock down another season, right? Turns out no. After one episode, the show was canceled, and from the sound of it, not even James Wan knows why, as he revealed on Instagram.

RELATED – The Real Reason Swamp Thing Was Canceled

“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.”


Of course, we did a story on the heels of Swamp Thing’s Cancellation that outlined the main reason why the show was seemingly canceled. Apparently, the production thought it was getting x amount for the grant, and due to an error, it only received ~.5x. But even more recent rumors indicate that wasn’t actually the case. From what we’ve heard, there was some exec that had it out for the production and wanted to see it taken down, for one reason or another.

I’m sure as the weeks and months pass we’ll hear more, but this remains one of the more interesting modern TV mysteries.
