‘Constantine’ Officially Gets Cancelled By NBC

Constantine has been in a precarious position for a while, not having done the ratings that NBC had hoped for. Of course, since the show had the Friday night death slot, I’m not sure what they expected… but I don’t work in network television.

Sadly though, the news came via a tweet from showrunner Daniel Cerone that Constantine will not be seeing a second season on NBC earlier today.

Cerone apparently is trying to shop the show around to keep it going, and while I wish him the best of luck — the odds are slim.

It’s too bad really – Constantine was a pretty decent show even if it was too afraid to portray its lead as bisexual (as John is in the comics). I really enjoyed it, and am sad to see it go.
