Cult favourite DC TV show Constantine has been resurrected – in the form of an animated mini-series…
Matt Ryan’s take on the Hellblazing anti-hero sorcerer was an immediate hit with fans in the 2014 Constantine series for NBC. Sadly, that show was canceled after only 13 episodes. Due to Ryan’s popularity, however, the character was brought back for an episode of Arrow‘s fourth season – which retroactively placed the series in the Arrowverse. Now, John Constantine is back once again!
Constantine: The Animated Series will air on the online CW Seed network, following on from other Arrowverse animated shows like Vixen and the upcoming The Ray. The show will probably run for a limited series of six five-to-ten minute episodes, in the mold of Vixen.
This follows on from Matt Ryan reprising the role of Constantine in another animated production – the Justice League Dark animated movie, to be released next month. That is loosely based off the unmade live-action movie that would have been directed by Guillermo Del Toro. Have a watch of the trailer – and get a taste of Constantine in animation – below:
