Now, for the past few months, there has been a lot of speculation about the series renewing for season 2. Given the popularity and infinite demand of the series, we all are hoping for another season. At last, the question remains the same – Will there be season 2 of ‘Swamp Thing’? Let’s find out

Is CW renewing ‘Swamp Thing’ for another season?
To all the ‘Swamp Thing’ fans out there, unfortunately, the chances of season 2 are not very high. According to the reports from “Deadline”, Mark Pedowitz, CEO of CW has confirmed that ‘Swamp Thing’ will most likely not come back for season 2. Mark said that he was elated with the success of ‘Swamp Thing’. However, for now, the streaming service would want to direct their attention to shows such as ‘Wonder Girl’ and ‘Naomi’.
In another report by “Screen Rant”, it is stated that the reason why there will not be a second season is that the sets are all “long gone”. As per their sources, the contract of the actors has also expired, which makes it impossible for season 2 to happen.
What happened in season 1?
The first season revolves around Dr Abby Arcane (Crystal Reed), who while investigating a deadly virus in the swamps of Louisiana, comes across a mysterious creature. In her quest to find a cure for the virus, she returns to her home, the place she had been running away from. There she teams up with Alec, who seems to have some knowledge about the virus. In each and every episode, she and Alec strive hard to find a cure for the virus. However, towards the end, the swamp becomes more powerful and decides to fight back.
