In a move that fans will hopefully see as a promise for the future, NBC has moved its embattled DC Comics show ‘Constantine‘ from the 10pm time slot on Fridays to the earlier 8pm time slot, as well as announcing the show will return on January 16th to finish the last 5 episodes of its first season. But will it be its only season?
Moving the show to the 8 o’clock slot shows some confidence on the part of the network, although it might also be a last ditch effort to see if fans will really show up to support the show. With only 5 episodes remaining, it could also just be airing to burn off the episodes and keep the slot warm until NBC gets another show ready for the Spring season. Only time will tell, but the good news is that although production on the first season was stopped at only 13 episodes, NBC has still not officially canceled the show, and with its rating upswing, there is a good chance we might still see a ‘Constantine’ Season 2.
For now, check out ‘Constantine’ when it returns for its final 5 episodes on January 16th, in its new time slot at 8pm!
“Based on the wildly popular 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 (Lucy Griffiths), 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. “
