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.
Arrow Season 3 will wind down this week as Constantine frantically scours the tube for a new home after its NBC cancellation, but could the two end up intertwined? Stephen Amell has expressed an interest in doing a crossover with DC’s demon-fighting detective, which apparently has almost come to fruition before.
A few weeks ago, word of NBC’s early Constantine cancellation was met by slight backpedal and a firm insistence from creator Daniel Cerone that the Hellblazer might yet live. Tragically, NBC’s Constantine has officially conjured its last, for serious this time.
Amid the flurry of new superhero TV series in development, NBC’s Constantine never quite caught on the way DC’s A-List CW stars or even Marvel’s minimalist approach did. Now, a report has surfaced suggesting NBC might formally have pulled the plug on Constantine, leaving the demon-fighting detective without a home (for now).
