Constantine’s Future is Uncertain as NBC Stops Production



The future of NBC’s new DC Comics-inspired series “Constantine” is in question today as Variety reveals that the network has elected to stop production on the show’s first season after 13 episodes. That doesn’t necessarily mean that “Constantine” has been cancelled, however, and the show could still get picked up for another season next year.

Starring Matt Ryan (“Criminal Minds”) as the chain-smoking supernatural detective first introduced by Alan Moore in “Saga of the Swamp Thing” before getting his own series, “Hellblazer,” the show also stars Angélica Celaya (“Dallas”), Harold Perrineau (“Lost”) and Charles Halford.

Produced by Bonanza Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television, “Constantine” is written and is executive produced by Daniel Cerone (“Dexter”), David S. Goyer and Mark Verheiden.
