It’s Official: ‘Constantine’ is No More

By June 7, 2015

Although efforts have been in motion to try and secure a new home for “Constantine” after its cancellation by NBC last month, it looks like those efforts have come up short. The show is officially dead.

Executive Producer of the series Daniel Cerone has come forward with an official statement on the fate of the series through TwitLonger, in an effort to give the show’s fans the bad news in an upfront manner. It reads, in part,

I promised I’d share news when I had it — sadly, that news is not good. The cast and writers of Constantine are being released from their contracts. The studio tried to find a new home for the show, for which we’re forever grateful, but those efforts didn’t pan out. I’m sorry, I wasn’t provided any information on the attempts to sell the show elsewhere. All I can report is that the show is over.

[...] To leave such a significant, dedicated and active fan base on the table — that’s the real sadness. You all deserve many years of the series we set out to make, and we’re disappointed that we couldn’t deliver that to you. The good news is that Constantine will live on for years in many more forms. But our time as caretakers has ended.

Thank you for letting us in.

While new dedicated episodes featuring John Constantine may be off the table for good, there may still be a glimmer of hope in seeing this iteration of the character again. Recently, many of the creative minds behind the CW’s “Arrow” and “The Flash” have expressed an interest in seeing Constantine show up, in some form, on those series. With “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow” premiering on the CW this fall and expanding that universe, it appears as if more groundwork is being laid for the television iteration of the DC Comics Universe.

This is only a guess, though, as we’ll have to wait and see if there’s a future for the Hellblazer on TV. For now, though, it looks like he’ll have to fade back into the darkness. For more DC Comics TV developments, keep it locked on GeekNation.
