NBC Will Keep Constantine Fans Hanging Until May
Sorry, Constantine fans, you'll have the Sword of Damocles hanging over you for at least the next couple of months. After months of uncertainty regarding a second season for the DC Comics adaptation, NBC is still leaving the series on the backburner, and will decide on a possible second season renewal in May.
The news about Constantine has been far from encouraging recently, with production halting after only 13 episodes and star Matt Ryan claiming that he's hopeful, but conceding that he hasn't heard anything about a renewal. According to executive producer Daniel Cerone, Constantine is still not canceled, although its fate is very much up in the air. The producers will pitch the second season to executives in May, at which time a final decision will be reached.
He also clarified in an amusing exchange with a fan that it will not be considered for midseason renewal, but for the fall.
So Constantine fans should technically have an answer by May, although irritatingly enough, the story likely won't end there unless it's renewed by NBC. If it's "canceled" by NBC, then rumor has it that the show will be shopped around to other networks, particularly Syfy.
