As we reported early yesterday (here), NBC released a statement listing some of their shows that are being renewed for next season and, although it’s by no means the end of the story yet, Constantine was most notable by its absence.
However, Cinelinx are reporting that they are hearing rumblings that the executives, especially after the fantastic fan support, are looking at other ways to keep the show going.
And one of the ideas seems to be a genuinely good one. Ready? Ok…
“The idea here isn’t so much to keep Constantine going on NBC but to move it to the Syfy Channel (where the marathon they ran of the show did very well) and rebranding it as Hellblazer. The new channel would give them a little more freedom to explore some of the darker aspects of the comic and appeal to a broader fanbase.”
They go on to say that this idea is certainly very real with the folks at NBC but they add that there’s nothing set in stone… yet.
Hope, my friends, hope is a great thing…
