Swamp Thing wraps production on shortened season

It may have come in three episodes shorter than originally planned, but it appears production has wrapped on the upcoming first season of Swamp Thing.

As we reported last month, there were some strange happenings around the North Carolina set of DC Universe’s Swamp Thing. On April 17 news surfaced that the production of the series was abruptly shut down and the writers instructed to come up with a new way to cap off the season in the tenth episode that was in production.

It’s still not clear exactly what happened. Some rumors have stated the series was pushing the limits of its budget of $85M. But neither DC Universe or Warner Bros. would comment on the situation. Later that same day the first full Swamp Thing trailer was released which seemed like a way to stem some of the growing concern.

Very little was heard about what was happening after that other than someone showing off unused props for the Parliament of Trees – which were promptly wiped from the internet. It does appear, however, that the writers must have come up with a solution as a few cast members posted over the weekend that they had wrapped production.

Virginia Madsen seems hopeful for a second season in her good-bye to season 1.

And Henderson Wade also posted his farewell to the season.

Swamp Thing is currently scheduled to premiere on DC Universe on May 31. With so many questions still circling the series, it is anyone’s guess if we’ll see a season 2. For that news we’ll just have to wait and see.
