UPDATE!!!!!: Ok…despite rumors to the contrary (which we helped circulate…), apparently Constantine is NOT cancelled s of yet. Check out this update from the showrunner himself Daniel Cerone:
“I just received confirmation from the corporate offices at NBC. I was assured that Constantine has not been canceled and our pitch meeting to discuss a potential second season remains on the books. By the way, this is a pitch meeting involving the president of Warner Bros and and the entertainment heads of NBC. Nobody at this incredibly busy time of the development season has time to waste taking pointless meetings.
Now, is it fair to say that Constantine is a long shot? Sure, that’s fair to say. While we marginally improved a tough time slot for NBC, we’re a very expensive show to produce. A lot of NBC’s decision making will not doubt hinge on their new pilots and how they feel those new shows would fare as a companion piece to Grimm, versus a second season of Constantine.”
No matter which way this swings, we’ll be here to let you know how it falls.
The original story is below:
Well, it looks like the good fight is over… John Constantine lost the war.
Buzzfeed are running a fairly comprehensive list of shows and their fates this season and, sadly, Constantine is cancelled.
We all knew it was possible, if not likely, but it’s still a bitter pill.
The author of the Buzzfeed article Tweeted the message below, confirming that she’s confident the show is gone.
We grew to love the demon-hunting smart mouth over the course of the first (half of) season. And we really hoped the angels would have smiled on him.
If anything changes we’ll let you all know.
