The new series Swam Thing (Swamp Monster) seems to have been canceled by DC Universe due to production budget problems. Unprecedented in Brazil, the project debuted in the USA last week, having shown only 1 episode.
According to the website Heroic Hollywood, the show relied on a tax benefit from the state of North Carolina to complete the production budget. With changes in the policy of granting money, the series lost its sponsorship of more than 10 million dollars, which complicated the situation of the development of new episodes.
Deadline also states that the executives of Warner Media they were no longer very satisfied with the series, and yet, they are reviewing how the DC Universe will work within the plans of the organization that plans to launch its own streaming service next year.
Swamp Thing it was based on the Swamp Monster comics. James Wan and Michael Clear acted as executive producers and the duo Mark Verheiden and Gary Dauberman were responsible for the scripts.
The series would accompany the character Abby Arcane (Crystal Reed) as she investigates what appears to be a dangerous and deadly virus from a swamp in a small town in Louisiana. But soon Arcane will discover that the swamp also has mystics and terrible secrets when unexplained events start to happen in the city. That way, nobody will be safe.
Complete the actor Henderson Wade like Matt Cable, Virginia Madsen will be Mary Sunderland, and Will Patton plays Avery Sunderland.
It is unclear whether DC Universe will show all episodes yet.
