Swamp Thing TV Show Will Air On The CW, But It's Still Canceled

The CW will air two canceled streaming shows as part of its fall lineup due to COVID-19 pandemic.


As the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic continues, it remains unclear when TV shows will be able to resume production and begin filming new seasons to debut in the fall. As such, some networks are looking to airing shows that have previously been shown elsewhere. Earlier, it was announced that Fox would broadcast the first season of Bad Boys spin-off LA's Finest, which currently airs on Spectrum. Now, The CW has added two streaming shows to its fall roster--including a DC Universe fan favorite.

The network will air the one and only season of Swamp Thing this fall. The series premiered on the DC Universe streaming service in 2019, but was canceled following the release of the first episode. The show stars Crystal Reed as Dr. Abby Arcane and Derek Mears as the titular Swamp Thing. This is the second DC Universe series to wind up on The CW, with episodes of the new series Stargirl also set to air on the network.

Additionally, The CW will air the CBS All Access original show Tell Me a Story. The anthology series was canceled on the streaming service after two seasons, but The CW plans to air all episodes. The network will also air the Canadian series Coroner, along with British comedy Dead Pixels. This will be the US debut for both shows.

These shows will join the series that were previously renewed by The CW, including The Flash, Riverdale, Supergirl, Batwoman, Legacies, Black Lightning, and Roswell, New Mexico. Supernatural, Arrow, and The 100 will not be returning. While Arrow has already wrapped up its final season, Supernatural and The 100 are set to wrap before the fall.
