NBC officially cancels ‘Constantine,’ rumored to be good fit for The CW

Internet rumors were that NBC had cancelled Constantine, but that report was premature. Showrunner Daniel Cerone quickly clarified that no decision had been made, but now that decision has now been made, and it’s official — Constantine has been cancelled.

constantine-tv-series-matt-ryan-photoCerone offers hope for the fans that Constantine will get picked up by another network. NBC has officially announced that Constantine will not be back for a second season. At least not on their network.

As Cerone reassures fans, studio Warner Bros. TV is currently shopping the supernatural drama elsewhere. From Twitter:

NBC a “no” for Season 2. Warner Bros working hard to find new home. Stay active. Stream. Tweet.  — @DanielVCerone

Matt Ryan starred as the title character from the popular Vertigo comic book series and the show was met with a strong fan response, but the numbers were never very strong.

Will Constantine find a new home? From Slash Film:

As EW’s James Hibberd points out, The CW seems like a natural fit. They’ve had great luck with DC Comics-based properties (like The Flash and Arrow) and their similarly themed Supernatural is getting long in the tooth. The Syfy would be another great home for Constantine, though it’s too bad that earlier rumor about the show landing there in rebranded fashion turned out to be hot air.
