John Constantine coming to Arrow is undoubtedly exciting for fans of DC’s Hellblazer, and one of the showrunners is quick to point out that the character’s introduction makes sense story-wise given the mystical elements at play this fall.
Matt Ryan's time playing a live-action version of DC Comics' John Constantine was cut short earlier this year when NBC decided to not order a second season of the character's show, Constantine. Since then, we've heard whispers that the same incarnation of the character could live on.
When Constantine was on the air, there were talks of the lead character appearing on an episode of Arrow. Although the NBC series has since been cancelled, there may still a chance of seeing the chain-smoking occultist on the CW series.
The long weeks of debate surrounding Constantine’s cancellation and the subsequent hope that the comic book-based series would be resurrected is now complete. The NBC drama will not be returning on another network.
There’s no question that the 2014/15 TV season was the year of the superhero. Recognizing the genre’s insane success at the box-office, television networks decided to heavily invest in comic-book adaptations. Not all of them were met with critical acclaim, or even decent ratings, but together they delivered a ton of opportunities for nerds like us to geek out.
Despite Constantine being cancelled by NBC, may still be a chance for John Constantine to appear on Arrow even if the his show doesn’t get picked up by another network.And it won't even take any magic.
But unlike Marvel, who has all their network shows located on ABC, DC shows have been spread out over several networks, provoking questions as to whether the CW offerings could cross over with shows like Gotham or Constantine. Apparently, one such crossover actually almost happened.
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, noting whether new shows have been picked up for additional episodes, canceled or renewed.
As NBC starts building their piles of pilots and series orders, they’re also looking to clean up shop. And while this won’t come as a big surprise, the network is destroying a lot of comic book lovers’ minds by canceling Constantine.
The networks will make their final decision over the next couple of weeks, but there are plenty of shows that are currently still right on the bubble, neither getting great nor horrible ratings during this year's runs. Here's our list of shows that could still get picked up.
It will likely be a few weeks until NBC announces whether it will renew or cancel Constantine, but fortunately fans now have an idea of what to expect in a potential second season.
As we come to the end of the traditional TV season – which has been rendered all but moot by midseasons, cable schedules and streaming sites – there are still quite a few first-year shows out there awaiting word on whether or not they have a future.
This season, there are a slew of shows that have landed on the cancel and renew bubble, and depending on what deals the network is able to work out, some of them will land a renewal and some of them will be sure to be cancelled next month.
Not everyone is sharing in the good fortune comic book television has earned this season. For the mystical con-man John Constantine, it’s looking likely that we won’t be seeing him again next fall on the small screen.
While some expected cancellations have already occurred and other shows have held on, at least for now, there’s a slew of fall and especially midseason programming out there that probably won't make it through the end-of-season spring cleaning at the networks. Here's our list of shows that will probably get cancelled.
