NBC Orders CONSTANTINE To Series; Full Synopsis Released
Well The Flash isn’t the only DC hero making headlines today. As all the networks start announcing the series they’ve picked up, renewed, and cancelled today, news has just hit that NBC has officially ordered Constantine to series. We’ve seen a rather snazzy pic of Matt Ryan as the titular chain-smoking, blonde-haired, sarcastic detective of the supernatural, but now we know we’ll actually get to see him in action. Along with the news that the show will be getting a full season pick-up comes a rather in-depth synopsis running down the series’ plot, cast, and creative team. We’ve heard some of this before under the banner of ‘rumors,’ but now we have our first official info about the highly-anticipated series. Constantine will be joining the ever-growing pantheon of DC heroes on the small screen as early as this fall. What do you think about the news our favorite Hellblazer will be taking over the boob tube?
Based on the wildly popular comic book series “Hellblazer” from DC Comics, seasoned demon hunter and master of the occult John Constantine (Matt Ryan, “Criminal Minds”) 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 (Lucy Griffiths, “True Blood”), 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. Before long, it’s revealed that Liv’s “second sight” — an ability to see the worlds behind our world and predict supernatural occurrences — is a threat to a mysterious new evil that’s rising in the shadows. Now it’s not just Liv who needs protection; the angels are starting to get worried too. So, together, Constantine and Liv must use her power and his skills to travel the country, find the demons that threaten our world and send them back where they belong. After that, who knows… maybe there’s hope for him and his soul after all. The cast also includes Harold Perrineau and Charles Halford. Writer Daniel Cerone (“The Mentalist,” “Dexter”) serves as executive producer with David S. Goyer (“Man of Steel,” “The Dark Knight Rises”). “Constantine” is produced from Bonanza Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television. The show is based upon characters published by DC Entertainment.
