A representative from DC has come out in an attempt to address the recent cancellation of DC Universe's Swamp Thing, and reports that the streaming service is being "reevaluated" in light of the upcoming, overall WarnerMedia streaming service.

"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," DC Universe Community Manager Applejack (no other name given) posted on the streaming service's community forum. "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."

When asked about why the series was canceled, the DC Universe staffer said "unfortunately we are not in a position to answer at this time."

Swamp Thing producer James Wan has previously said he didn't "know or understand" why the show was canceled.

Regarding the June 6 report from Deadline that DC Universe's parent company Warner/Media (and AT&T) were being "reevaluated," Applejack says that "DC Universe continues to develop new shows, new seasons, new stories, more availability, and more platforms."

DC Universe has announced three upcoming TV shows announced (Harley Quinn, Stargirl, Metropolis), a second season of Titans, the DC Daily news program, and the second half of Young Justice: Outsiders' current season. Doom Patrol, which recently completed its first season, has not been announced as being renewed at this time.

Applejack writes that DC Universe will be deleting any "false rumors and speculation that this choice means DC Universe or any of our other original series were affected" on the DC Universe community forum.
