Warner Bros has not confirmed any particular reason for the cancelation yet. However, it did not stop fans from speculating. There are few reports claiming that the reason Swamp Thing was cut short was because the series went over budget. And that this mess happened mostly due to an accounting mistake blamed on the state of North Carolina, where the show has been filming.
When the news of the cancelation came, actor Derek Mears in an interview, stated, “it’s a weird nebulous space that we’re all in now because we don’t know officially why that would happen, or why they cancelled it.” Mears expressed his frustration saying, “Even if you are going to cancel it, wouldn’t you wait until later on to see how it plays with fans before? So, something’s going on somewhere.”
