    I don’t believe there’s a DC show produced to date with a larger per episode budget than Swamp Thing. It’s really too bad that it got canceled rather than moved to a platform which could support such a lavish budgeted show.


    • ChrisM

      As far as I know, they never provided a reason why. Even the producer/showrunner, or whomever, supposedly never got a clear answer either.


      • Destiny

        Money. Hugely expensive and prone to going over budget. Youd have to cut the budget by 60 percent to get on The CW. I think its a shame as the budget wouldn’t be out of place on a network like HBO.


  2. 69 Road Runner

    I think I know the name of the NeXt show to be canceled by FOX….


    • Destiny

      Science fiction doesnt really go well with broadcast television. The show would have enjoyed a decent run on FX on cable with those numbers.
