Here we go! NBC has finally announced the premiere date for Constantine after giving the TV series a 13-episode order a few weeks ago. That’s right! A full season of Constantine will officially start airing on Friday, October 24th, at 10:00 p.m. A slot that was previously scheduled for the now-defunct Dracula series that got canceled by NBC last month.
Constantine will be based on the wildly popular comic book series Hellblazer from DC Comics. David S. Goyer (Man of Steel) and Daniel Cerone (The Mentalist) have penned the script, with Neil Marshall (The Descent, Game of Thrones) directing the pilot. Matt Ryan is set to play the seasoned demon hunter and master of the occult, John Constantine.

About The Constantine TV Series
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.
