Constantine’s First Season Cut Back to 13 Episodes

Deadline is reporting that NBC’s Constantine will reduce its order from 22 episodes to 13. Normally, this means the show is likely to be cancelled, but Constantine is sitting in kind of a weird limbo when it comes to its future.

When the show was first ordered, it was only intended to be a 13 episode season, but extra episodes were ordered. This move effectively reduces the season to its original run length. NBC is also keeping Constantine in its timeslot, in the hopes that its ratings will improve — which is promising for those of us who like the show.

The fate of the show is balanced on the head of a pin.
