DC Universe’s Swamp Thing has a brief but very interesting history, having initially been released onto a dying platform before being canceled before the first run of episodes had even finished airing. Ironically, the series went on to become something of a cult favorite, despite the plug being pulled before it even had a chance to catch on.

The CW ended up acquiring the rights and re-airing the first season to a much wider and more receptive audience, and even went to the trouble of connecting it to the small screen Arrowverse by recycling some archival footage during the Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover event, which inevitably led to whispering that a potential revival could be in the works.

Insider Daniel Richtman is now claiming that Swamp Thing is back on the table at HBO Max, but the tipster doesn’t offer any information other than that. Of course, over the last few months we’ve heard various rumors that the series is coming back on both Warner Bros.’ streaming service and The CW, while there’s also been conflicting reports that it won’t happen at all.

The most likely scenario at this point is that the series will be wiped from existence entirely and we’ll see the mossy antihero given the full-blown reboot treatment. The character has longstanding ties to Justice League Dark, which we at least know is definitely happening on HBO Max with J.J. Abrams’ Bad Robot at the helm and an entirely new ensemble on board, which eliminates the likes of Matt Ryan’s John Constantine and presumably Derek Mears’ Swamp Thing as well, but it could also end up spinning off into a number of solo shows in the long run.
