Constantine Isn’t Cancelled, but Also Isn’t Getting More Episodes

Of all the new shows DC aired this year (Gotham, Flash, and Constantine), Constantine and Gotham were the biggest risks. Despite that, Gotham has been getting big ratings, and already got a full season order. Constantine however won’t get that luxury.

To be clear, the show isn’t cancelled, not even close. The cutoff date for ordering more episodes was upon NBC, and they only had 5 episodes worth of ratings to decide what to do. They decided to air on the side of caution and keep the season only 13 episodes.

Ironically, the show jumped in viewership with its last episode, and its ratings (as noted by the showrunner Daniel Cerone) are actually higher than NBC’s other beloved show Hannibal. And Hannibal got renewed.

So where does this leave Constantine? Well, if viewers continue to tune in, the show will be given a second season. And who knows? A shortened first season might just work in its favor.
