A new ‘Save Constantine’ petition has now appeared on Change.org, aiming to lobby any network that will listen into bringing back the series that NBC unceremoniously binned a few months ago.
“On November 4th, 2015, it was proved that the Constantine fanbase is still very much alive as evidenced by the reception to the character's appearance on the fifth episode of Arrow's fourth season,” the petition states, before listing some potential suitors for the series.
Arrow’s home network, The CW, is top of the list, which also goes on to suggest Netflix, Yahoo, The El Rey Network and »

What do you think? Are you a Constantine fan? Will you read the script? Do you want a season two? »
On Friday, Constantine showrunner Daniel Cerone — as a thanks to fans who retweeted an Arrow promotion — released a script via Twitter for what would’ve been the next episode of the cancelled NBC drama.
And because we miss the series as much as all you Hellblazers out there, here’s a brief overview of the installment and some highlights:
After NBC’s Constantine was cancelled, fans of the show began to lose hope of ever seeing Matt Ryan in the trademark trench-coat of the foul-mouthed occultist ever again – but it’s now been officially announced that actor will be reprising the role in an upcoming episode of The CW’s Arrow.
Following the cancellation this past May, showrunner Daniel Cerone did his best to try to get the show picked up for a second season on another network but his efforts were in vain, and everyone figured that was that. Around this time, Arrow star Stephen Amell reached out on Twitter and said that if Constantine was given another chance, he would happily guest star as Oliver Queen. Ryan responded by enthusiastically stating that it’d be a “real pleasure to explore these guys’ dynamic.”

Back in May, NBC canceled the first-year series Constantine, as many expected the network would, due to low ratings, with the show searching for a new home on Netflix, Amazon and a number of other networks and streaming services. Just a few days after the cancellation, Arrow star Stephen Amell proclaimed on his Twitter page that he would guest star, if someone stepped up and saved the series. Alas, it never came to be, with executive producer Daniel Cerone confirming that Constantine's search for a new home has come up empty. However, while promoting the new season of Arrow at Comic-Con last week, executive producer Wendy Mericle revealed they are still trying to bring the character aboard for Season 4
"Yeah, we really want to do it. It's something we've been talking to DC Comics about and it's just a question of some political things, but also the actor's schedule. »
Back in May, NBC lowered the axe on Constantine, the supernatural DC Comics adaptation starring Matt Ryan. The show was shopped around to other networks shortly after, but showrunner Daniel Cerone announced in June that the series was truly dead.
Yet, against all odds, there’s a chance that Matt Ryan’s John Constantine will live again. IGN recently spoke with Arrow star Stephen Amell and executive producer Wendy Mericle, who both stated that Ryan could in fact show up in Star City when the series returns for its fourth season this fall. Amell and producer Marc Guggenheim have previously expressed their desire to see such a thing happen – but that felt like nothing more than a pipedream.

It looks like Constantine is staying cancelled. The low-rated NBC series was officially dropped by the network last month but the studio, Warner Bros. TV, kept hope alive by shopping season two to other channels.
Constantine showrunner Daniel Cerone had said that the casts and writer contracts would run out this month and now, Cerone says that all options have been exhausted. Via Twitter, he wrote: Read More… »
If we're being honest, "Constantine" has been dead for a while. "Constantine" has been dead since November when NBC confirmed that the DC Comics adaptation wouldn't get a back-nine order. The number of network shows that do low ratings in the fall, fail to get back-nine orders and then somehow get picked up for additional episodes the next season is basically "zero." "Constantine" has also been dead since February, when the series finale did a 0.8 rating among adults 18-49, capping off a season in which even factoring in DVR numbers, the series was barely doing "Dracula"-level ratings. And, most significantly, "Constantine" has been dead since May when NBC confirmed that at least as far as NBC was concerned, the series was cancelled. Through it all, showrunner Daniel Cerone has kept hope alive for fans with nebulous tweets about pitching future seasons to NBC and Warner Brothers pitching the potentially »

Though NBC canceled a number of their new shows this season, there was some hope that the comic-book adaptation Constantine would find a new home. Warner Bros. was shopping the series around, but executive producer Daniel Cerone took to Twitter on Sunday to announce that the show is officially dead. Here's his statement: "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. Many ingredients went into this TV series.

One of the most disappointing cancellations of the 2014-15 TV season for many people was that of NBC’s DC Comics drama Constantine. However, fans of the series, the show’s cast and crew, and even other notable actors, such as Arrow‘s Stephen Amell and The Originals‘ Joseph Morgan (both of whom promised to guest star on Constantine if another network or streaming service picked it up for Season 2) banded together for the “#SaveConstantine” campaign, hoping that the series would be resurrected and have a new home for Season 2, no matter what type of home that was. Unfortunately, despite everyone’s very passionate efforts, it appears that Constantine is officially dead, as series creator Daniel Cerone has announced to the show’s fans that no network has picked it up and that the cast and writers are being released from their contracts. “All I can report is that the show is over, »

After some encouraging early signs that cancelled NBC drama Constantine could beat the odds and find a new home, hope has faded for the DC comic-based series starring Matt Ryan, which ended its 13-episode first and now only season in February. In a note to fans posted this past weekend, executive producer Daniel Cerone, who developed Constantine with David S. Goyer and ran the series, announced the show’s official end and thanked for the support. Constantine producer… »

Those hoping that NBC's TV series adaptation of the supernatural comic "Constantine" might get a reprieve - think again.
In the wake of NBC's decision not to renew the series, rumors quickly sprang up suggesting the show may end up elsewhere such as Syfy or The CW. Sadly, that chance is now over.
Executive producer Daniel Cerone broke the news today in a lengthy message on Twitter, talking about the efforts made to save the show and ultimately a goodbye and thank you to the fans. Here's the key excerpt:
"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.

Constantine has had a rough road trying to find a home for its second season. Unfortunately, it's actually been a lot like pulling a Band-Aid off slowly: First, the show found some critical pushback, then NBC pumped the brakes, then it was basically done for, and since, it's kind of been in showbiz purgatory. Ep Daniel Cerone took to Twitter earlier Sunday to finally explain the latest, which, essentially, is that the series is sadly, officially dead and un-revivable in his and his team's hands. "We're leaving behind wild and passionate fans who believe in and were moved by what we tried to do. To leave such a significant, dedicated and active fan base on the table — that's the real sadness," Cerone wrote in an extended post. "But our time as caretakers has ended." The cast and writers of the show are being released from their contracts, according to Cerone, »

The outlook for the freshman drama looked Grimm grim when NBC elected just weeks after its sub-Dracula premiere not to order a full season.

Constantine never really had a chance. Between a noticeable lack of promotion and an awful time slot, it quickly became clear that it wasn't going to be a hit for NBC or Warner Bros. When the former decided not to move ahead with a second season, there was talk of it ending up elsewhere (Arrow's Stephen Amell even offered to guest star), but The CW decided against it, and so did everyone else by the sound of it. Executive producer Daniel Cerone weighs in on the death of the series below, but here's hoping we'll see Matt Ryan reprise the role elsewhere, eh? We'll see...
