CONSTANTINE Set To Premiere In Time For Halloween
Fans of Hellblazer and its chain-smoking, blonde haired, anti-hero Constantine have been excited with everything they’ve seen about the upcoming NBC series so far. Two trailers were released last month along with a handful of promotional photos showing off Matt Ryan as a more comic book accurate John Constantine. While we knew the show would air on Friday nights, we didn’t know exactly which Friday it would debut. Today NBC has revealed their fall schedule and announced that all hell will break loose in time for Halloween.
It was revealed today that the first episode of David S. Goyer and Neil Marshall‘s new supernatural series based on the mega-popular comic book would roll out on October 24th at 10:00pm EST. That would mean the second episode would premiere on Halloween night, the 31st, unless the network decides to skip a week. Friday nights are usually not the best night for TV shows in terms or ratings, but Constantine may be able to surprise folks. The second episode airing on Halloween night might be a challenge though. We’ll just have to wait and see. What do you think?
In “Constantine,” based on the comic book series “Hellblazer” from DC Comics, seasoned demon hunter and master of the occult John Constantine specializes in giving hell… hell. Armed with a ferocious knowledge of the dark arts and his wickedly naughty wit, he fights the good fight – or at least he did. With his soul already damned to hell, he’s decided to leave his do-gooder life behind. But when demons target Liv, the daughter of one of Constantine’s oldest friends, he’s reluctantly thrust back into the fray – and he’ll do whatever it takes to save her.
