Dejected Constantine fans will summon forth a bit of relief with Matt Ryan’s upcoming Arrow appearance next week, but NBC series creator Daniel Cerone will do us one better: The ex-showrunner has revealed an unutilized draft of what would have been Constantine’s 14th episode, if not for cancellation.

We’re only hours from Arrow Season 4 deciding if a revived Sara Lance is “Beyond Redemption,” but next week will truly settle the matter with help from Matt Ryan’s John Constantine, in a landmark crossover. We’ve seen a few tidbits, but watch heroes collide against the supernatural in the full photo set from Arrow’s Constantine crossover, “Haunted!”
Beleaguered with setup though Season 4 has been, Arrow managed to pull off the impossible in resurrecting Matt Ryan’s Constantine for an upcoming crossover. We saw the demon-fighting detective stamp out his mark in the first trailer, while the first official “Haunted” photo has emerged, along with some surprising intel on his appearance.
We’re just weeks away from Constantine star Matt Ryan conjuring a magical resurrection on The CW’s Arrow, but many still lament the character’s own home at NBC casting him out into the cold of cancellation to begin with. Now, executive producer David Goyer admits that NBC might not have proven a wise home for the demon-fighting detective, who could have lived longer under a different model.
At long last, Arrow Season 4 finally set its sights on a Season 4 trailer at Dragon Con, and there’s a new day in Star City, chock full of Legend-ary heroes. We couldn’t help diving way deeper into every frame of footage, so what secrets of Arrow Season 4 did we unmask?
Arrow Season 4 shocked and delighted DC fans with news that Warner Bros. had actually approved Matt Ryan‘s now-canceled Constantine to crop up in Starling City for a crossover, many speculating what would bring the demon-fighter into Oliver Queen’s world. Now, new details confirm that Constantine will have a hand in Sara Lance’s pre-Legends resurrection, among other surprises.
The untimely (and repeated) cancellation of NBC’s Constantine didn’t stop the rumor mill from suggesting that Arrow Season 4 might pickup the DC demon-fighting detective for a crossover event, though rights issues seemingly tangled things up. Whatever magic spell Constantine seems to have cast has worked, as Matt Ryan will officially reprise the role in Arrow Season 4!
Particularly after another Comic-Con, the sting of Constantine’s cancellation still smarts, not only for lack of a second season, but also the dream of a DC crossover. That said, Arrow is reportedly still trying to conjure John Constantine an appearance in Season 4, and may yet return the Hellblazer to life after all.
NBC’s Constantine has traversed a rocky road, suffering in ratings, enduring an accidental early cancellation, then an official one, and at long last John Constantine may have finally met his match. No amount of the supernatural can conjure salvation from Constantine’s latest fate, as showrunner Daniel Cerone says the show is officially over.
NBC’s cancellation of Constantine set off the familiar scramble to find the series a new home, though showrunner Daniel Cerone seemed optimistic The CW might look to add to its growing DC stable, with whom crossover talks have already occurred. Not so it seems, as The CW may not be Constantine’s salvation after all.
