After rumours that Constantine had been cancelled by NBC, it looks as though the DC television series won’t be back.
It’s one of DC’s more obscure properties, but Constantine quickly built up a dedicated fan base during its first season run. Starring Matt Ryan as the eponymous John Constantine, the rumours suggested that Season Two wouldn’t be happening.
And now Executive Producer Daniel Cerone has put the final nail in its coffin.
Appearing on Twitter, it looks as though Daniel Cerone has revealed that Constantine is currently dead in the water… even if they are trying to find it a new home.
But where could Warner Bros. turn next?
There’s already been talk that Constantine could have made the shift over to SyFy… but those rumours turned out to be false. And now Deadline suggests that there could be life for the series over on the Fox network.
“I hear there could be a future for the show, even a potential broadcast play,” they explained. “I’m being completely hypothetical here, but what do you think of this trio under one roof: Lucifer, Frankenstein and Constantine?!”
Unfortunately, all we know for certain is that Constantine won’t be returning to NBC.
But after recent events, that’s not entirely surprising. After all, the network chose not to order any more episodes outside of the original thirteen-episode run. And that’s where the rumours began about NBC ditching the series.
Will Constantine find another home? For now, we’ll have to wait and see. But things aren’t looking good for everyone’s favourite Hellblazer.
