Constantine Not Among NBC Announced Renewals

constantine-0112 (1)

The future of NBC’s Constantine still remains in doubt for viewers and the network alike.

In the network’s list of series renewals for the 2015-2016 television season, NBC listed that several of their current shows would come back for another installment. Unfortunately, DC’s chain-smoking mage was not among them.

Now, this isn’t a kiss of death for Constantine. The press release only lists renewals for their highly successful programs, like The Black List, Grimm, and Law and Order. With strong ratings to fall back on, NBC most likely feels confidant enough to announce renewals for those shows early in the year. For a wildcard series like Constantine, NBC is probably still waiting to see if future ratings will justify a second season. It’s likely that they want the entire first season to conclude—which will be on February 13th—before making the final call.

The show’s future has remained in doubt since November last year, when NBC decided not to order a back half to Constantine’s premiere season. NBC tried improving the show’s odds by moving the second half of the season from 10:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. on Fridays, though they’ve yet to say if the experiment worked or failed.

Expect final judgement on the series to come after the season finale on Friday, February 13th...Just how John Constantine would want it.

Constantine airs this Friday, February 6th, at 8:00 p.m. on NBC.

    I love this show. I hope NBC renews it or another channel picks it up.

    I really want to see Spectre and Dr. Fate. I would love to eventually see DeadMan and Zanatana eventually leading into Justice League Dark. This show has a lot of potential to open doors to an area of DC that has remaind almost completely in the dark for some time. I also want to see Constantie meet some non magic meta humans to show just how large and complex the universe really is.

    I agree. DC should go a similar route as Marvel and move this over to something like Amazon prime and do multiple series to lead in JL Dark. That would be awesome.

    Screw NBC, they have fucked around this show since the get-go. I hope another network picks it up and embraces its greatness like the fans do.

  1. This is insane! There has to be something else done! My family will sit and watch this show together. Do you know how hard it is to get 16 and 15 year old boys to sit and watch something with their parents? Please save Constantine!
