Constantine fans got another return to form with news that Matt Ryan would reprise his NBC role for the upcoming Justice League Dark, but that was only a trial run. The demon-fighting detective (and his live-action voice) will return as an animated CW Seed series, the first photo of which is already here!

The CW confirmed the news at the ongoing TCA Press Tour panel, albeit without specifying any update on the fate of Vixen, or progress on Freedom Fighters: The Ray. At the very least, we know Matt Ryan will return to voice the character, helmed by executive producer Greg Berlanti.

As with most CW Seed Animated series, Constantine is expected to run for 6-7 episodes of about ten minutes apiece.

Constantine of course made its original run on NBC, after which the character’s popularity landed him a post-cancellation CW appearance on Arrow, and talk of a return ever since. Ryan also lent his voice to the animated Justice League Dark.

We’ll hear more as the day wears on, but is a CW Seed series the next best thing to an official Constantine return?
