This morning, news broke that Constantine will halt production after it fulfills its original 13-episode order. The news comes after Constantine’s ratings have failed to compete or surpass NBC’s veteran series Grimm. However, NBC’s decision may not totally be a bad thing.
We know it can be tough to keep track of all the new and upcoming network shows. So, we’ve devised a list of all of the major networks, mentioning each of the primetime shows that have begun airing or will air this season, also noting whether new shows have been picked up for additional episodes, canceled or renewed.
Looking at buzz, ratings and other outside factors, we’ve compiled a list of the shows that are currently in danger of getting canceled. The list may change as the year wears on, but for now, check them out, and let us know if there are any you think are missing.
Despite only airing four episodes, NBC’s Constantine has viewers buzzing, and series lead Matt Ryan already has his sights set on taking the sarcastic occultist to the next level.
Perhaps Hellblazer readers will make a point to tune in for Friday night’s episode “The Devil’s Vinyl,” as it will be the first small screen appearance of the immortal badass Papa Midnite. We now know what he looks like, thanks to the first look images from NBC, and he's damned near perfect.
Last night, NBC finally premiered its new drama Constantine, a new show about an exorcist and occult detective that also happens to mark the network’s first entry into DC’s comic TV realm. NBC has been looking for a stable series to pair with Grimm for quite some time, and Constantine may be a winner.
If you're worried that adding Constantine to your schedule will cause some serious superhero fatigue, rest easy. The new NBC series isn't like the other comic-book adaptations on TV. It's got more in common with Angel than it does with the costumed crime-fighting of The Flash or the origin story of Gotham. Of course, being different doesn't mean much if the quality isn't there and Constantine's pilot is 'super' inconsistent.
Adapting all-age superhero comic books for television is one thing, but adapting a distinctly adult comic for mass audiences is something else entirely. NBC’s Constantine is one such challenge, and the character’s fans have been anxious to know just how close Matt Ryan’s TV persona will get to the source material.
If you’ve been wondering what to call what DC Comics is doing with its slew of TV and movie characters, we have an answer for you. DC President Geoff Johns spoke out on Thursday to explain how The Flash and Arrow can exist on the small screen and still exist in a totally separate world on the big screen.
NBC’s marketing for DC’ Constantine has been a quiet affair. Now that we are three weeks out from Constantine’s official premiere, the network has released a behind-the-scenes look at the premiere, and it’s not to be missed by fans.
Hopefully Constantine will return to the top of fan expectations now that DC character Jim Corrigan has been cast, making it entirely plausible that The Spectre will be making his live-action TV debut at some point this fall. Who you gonna call?
Numerous TV shows are benefiting from Bear McCreary's musical talent these days. The composer is currently credited for a number of Starz shows, and you've heard his scores on everything from The Walking Dead to Battlestar Galactica and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
I can imagine Constantine's bass-and-percussion-filled extended trailer got the crowd's collective heart pumping, as it offers a rounded look at what the spiritually unhinged series will bring to NBC this fall. Or at least what the pilot will bring.
San Diego Comic-Con officially kicks off a week from today, so the timing is perfect for Warner Bros. to unveil the designs for the collectible bags, which will be handed out to all registered attendees when they arrive to pick up their SDCC badges.
While other series may have felt pressured into reshooting parts of the pilot to replace Griffiths’ character Liv with Celaya’s Zed, Constantine’s producer team doesn’t think that’s necessary.
