Fans were devastated when NBC cancelled the Matt Ryan led CONSTANTINE series after just one season in 2014. Petitions were launched, #SaveConstantine was plastered across the web. The only results were an appearance on ARROW and Ryan voicing John Constantine in the animated JUSTICE LEAGUE DARK.
Well, Hellblazers, look no further! According to THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER, the CW SEED, home of the animated VIXEN and upcoming DC FREEDOM FIGHTERS: THE RAY, both of which are set in the shared DC TV Universe of Arrow et al., will be reviving CONSTANTINE for an ongoing animated series, complete with Matt Ryan to voice the cynical dark arts practitioner. While CW president Mark Pedowitz said “there are no plans,” to have Constantine cross over into the live shows (Flash, Arrow, Legends of Tomorrow, Supergirl) he did add that he’d love to have Ryan back.
