With Constantine having gone off the air earlier this season having finished out its thirteen episode run, fans have been in limbo along with the cast and production team as to whether a second season will be coming. Executive producer Daniel Cerone has now tweeted that the fate could finally be decided in the near future as the team has an end of April date to pitch season two ideas to NBC, where they’ll then decide on the fate of the show. The show has a few options potentially ahead of it, as it could come back in the same form, a full season, not at all or even be shifted over to Syfy Channel as part of their original programming block, giving them a comic book series as well.
Constantine stars Matt Ryan as the lead character alongside Angelica Celaya, Harold Perrineau and Charles Helford. It comes from Daniel Cerone and David S. Goyer with Neil Marshall directing the pilot. The series premiered on October 24th, 2014 to play up the Halloween and supernatural angle and draw in potential audiences that way. It struggled in the ratings overall, though it continued to grow overall, but didn’t catch fire like NBC had hoped for, which had them not order a back half run for the season.
Plot Concept: Seasoned demon hunter and master of the occult John Constantine (Matt Ryan, “Criminal Minds”) specializes in giving hell… hell. Armed with a ferocious knowledge of the dark arts and his wickedly naughty wit, he fights the good fight — or at least he did. With his soul already damned to hell, he’s decided to leave his do-gooder life behind, but when demons target Liv (Lucy Griffiths, “True Blood”), the daughter of one of Constantine’s oldest friends, he’s reluctantly thrust back into the fray – and he’ll do whatever it takes to save her. Before long, it’s revealed that Liv’s “second sight” — an ability to see the worlds behind our world and predict supernatural occurrences — is a threat to a mysterious new evil that’s rising in the shadows. Now it’s not just Liv who needs protection; the angels are starting to get worried too. So, together, Constantine and Liv must use her power and his skills to travel the country, find the demons that threaten our world and send them back where they belong. After that, who knows… maybe there’s hope for him and his soul after all.”
