It looks like, as feared, John Constantine is in real trouble at NBC.
With Constantine in trouble since last November when NBC moved it to a 8pm slot on Friday nights (from 10pm) to try to improve ratings, we’ve really been hoping that the massive show of support online might be enough to show the studio that the show really has a fan base. The show truly has gone from strength to strength and is a highlight of the week.
But it looks like, if early indicators are true, it has failed.
NBC has released a press release of their returning shows for next season including he Black List, Grimm, and Law and Order but alas, Constantine was noticeable by his absence.
Now Comicbook has pointed out that the release did seem more concerned with assuring folks that their biggest shows would return and Constantine would not necessarily have been on there anyway.
They also point out that, with the first season concluding on February 13th [very apt, really], the studio may want to wait until it’s finished to decide what they are doing.
But it doesn’t look good…
