Based on the wildly popular comic book series "Hellblazer" from DC Comics, seasoned demon hunter and master of the occult John Constantine is armed with a ferocious knowledge of the dark arts and a wickedly naughty wit. He fights the good fight - or at least he did. With his soul already damned to hell, he's decided to abandon his campaign against evil until a series of events thrusts him back into the fray when an old friend's daughter becomes the target of superhuman forces.
Did You Know?
In his closing narration, Constantine comments "...I'll drive your demons away, kick 'em in the bollocks...". "Bollocks" is a vulgar British term referring to the testicles. See more

Cheers. Interesting coincidence. Ritchie had to drive twenty blocks out of the way to pass Edgewood Avenue and stumble onto that crime scene.
Mm. He made me pay for gas.
You scared her away.
Kind of the point, mate. I work better alone.
You failed to grasp the stakes here, John. Liv's power is valuable.
So is her life! If Liv was gonna join our fight, she had the right to see the risks for herself. All I did was... give her a choice. Which is more than Astra ...
The ending of the original version of the pilot (which was leaked onto the web) differs in a number of ways from the transmitted one, mostly to accommodate the removal of Liv from the series, after the writers decided that she was too passive a character:
- In the transmitted pilot, the demon possessing the security guard ultimately takes the form of Constantine himself; in the original pilot, he retained the security guard's body.
- In the original pilot, Constantine asked Ritchie to drive Liv to a crime scene in order to galvanize her desire to help him. In the transmitted version he does it to scare her off, or at least to warn her of the dangers she faces.
- In the original pilot Liv does not return the amulet to John, nor does she mark on the map where other events are likely to take place.
