Although production was stopped on Constantine in November following its initial 13-episode order, NBC Universal doesn’t appear ready to give up on the supernatural drama.
According to CineLinx’s unnamed sources, executives have floated the possibility of renaming the DC Comics adaptation Hellblazer and moving it to NBC’s cable sibling Syfy, where there would be more “freedom to explore some of the darker aspects of the comic and appeal to a broader fanbase.”
Premiering in October in 4.28 million, Constantine boasts a vocal fanbase and decent reviews, but hasn’t been able to find an audience on Friday nights (the fabled “death slot”). The series wasn’t among the five early renewals announced last week by NBC, but fans are holding out hope.
Constantine‘s 13th — and, as of now, final — episode, called “Waiting for the Man,” airs Friday at 8 p.m. ET/PT on NBC.
