DC Universe Addresses Streaming Service’s Rumored Demise

There's been a lot of bad press surrounding DC Universe the past few weeks. First came the recent cancellation of popular DC series, Swamp Thing – a move that really surprised fans seeing how the series only lasted one season on the streaming platform. After that, rumors started piling up the mill saying that DC Universe was going to go down very soon.

Now, DC Universe has decided to address those rumors through Moderator Applejack in the streaming platform's Watchtower forum. The moderator first decided to speak about Swamp Thing's controversial cancellation. He then moved on to what the DC Universe has planned for fans.

Apparently, the full ten episodes of the first season of Swamp Thing will continue to air on DC Universe. New episodes will be released weekly, though there are no plans for a second season. Despite this disappointing confirmation, DC Universe seems to have more shows planned for fans.


Check out Applejack's post down below:

"Hi, friends,

A million thanks for your patience. We understand this has not been an easy time for you as fans, and I will do my best to provide you with a satisfying answer.

First, some updates:

The full 10 episode season of Swamp Thing will continue to air on DC Universe with new episodes released weekly. There are no current plans for a Season 2.

We appreciate there are questions as to "why", but unfortunately we are not in a position to answer at this time.

And now, the good news:


DC Universe continues to develop new shows, new seasons, new stories, more availability, and more platforms. We've got a lot of exciting plans for our other shows in the works, and look forward to sharing more in the coming months."

This means that the DC Universe won't be shutting its doors any time soon. After all, its other series have been well received. Titans was pretty divisive at the start, however, the series has long since grown in popularity. Doom Patrol received a number of critical reactions. Swamp Thing received a number of positive reviews too.

Let's wait and see what the DC Universe has planned for everyone.
