Is “Constantine” about to get a second season in a new home? Fans of the NBC series were disgruntled when the show was cancelled after only one season, and despite online petitions and social media campaigns to get the show renewed, the series failed to find a new home after it bowed out in 2015.
Apart from the show’s loyal fans, series star Matt Ryan and executive producer Daniel Cerone also campaigned hard to get the series renewed. When Ryan was asked to guest star on “Arrow” as John Constantine, Cerone took to Twitter to ask fans to remind The CW that “Constantine” is a force.
“Let’s make some noise on #Arrow,” Cerone tweeted. “Show #TheCW that #Constantine refuses to die.”
While the closest “Constantine” got to a season 2 pickup was appearing on the October 2015 episode of the Stephen Amell starrer, The CW also gave fans renewed hope about the show’s future as it’s streaming platform, The CW Seed, is now streaming all 13 episodes of “Constantine” for free. Following this move, rumors surfaced that the youth-oriented network might be testing audiences’ reaction to the series as it is allegedly mulling over the possibility of a season 2 renewal for the show.
The CW certainly would be the perfect network for “Constantine,” as it is already home to four other DC shows such as “Arrow,” “The Flash,” “Legends of Tomorrow,” and “Supergirl.” The latter is the latest addition to The CW as the network picked up the show for a second season following its freshman run on CBS. It’s likely that the addition of another DC show will not cause any harm to the Arrowverse, as Constantine’s appearance in “Arrow” proved to be very beneficial for the show’s resurrection storyline.
Other celebrities, including a The CW star, have also expressed their support for a season 2 renewal for “Constantine.” “The Originals” actor Joseph Morgan said on his Twitter account that he would gladly guest star on the show if it gets renewed.
“#Constantine Pick up the show and I’ll guest star,” said the actor.
William Shatner also took to the microblogging site to ask if The CW would consider the show for a pickup.
“So NBC cancelled #Constantine maybe we can ask the @CW_network to have a look?” the “Star Trek” actor tweeted.
The CW has yet to comment on the “Constantine” season 2 renewal rumors.
