Constantine is Back! But Makes it way on TV via NBC

Constantine fans rejoice as it is now a hit TV series that's coming to NBC this season! If you loved the Keanu Reeves in it well this one, We think you should as well.

The plot of the series goes:

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.

Some facts about Constantine (from MoviePilot)

  • Constantine started off as a DC Superhero, before being transferred to their comic-book imprint Image. He was recently returned to the DC Universe, with the name of the comic changing to match, from Hellblazer to Constantine.
  • He was co-created by Alan Moore back in 1985. Moore is more famous for Watchmen, The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen and V for Vendetta.
  • In the comics, Constantine's appearance was originally based on, of all people, Sting - in particular in the way he appeared in the movie Quadrophenia.
  • Constantine appears in the comics as a chain-smoking, foul-mouthed and generally uncaring con artist, whose only redeeming feature is his belief in humanism. Which is why he's always getting into trouble with both Angels and Demons - a habit that looks set to continue into the series.
  • Matt Ryan, Constantine himself, was born and raised in Swansea, Wales - so that accent is close to authentic. Recognize his face? He's previously starred in Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior and (through motion capture) Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag
