Premise[edit]

John Constantine, a demon hunter and dabbling master of the occult, must struggle with his past sins while protecting the innocent from the converging supernatural threats that constantly break through to our world due to the "Rising Darkness". Balancing his actions upon the line of good and evil, Constantine uses his skills and a supernatural scry map to journey across the nation to send these terrors back to their own world, all for the hope of redeeming his soul from eternal torment.

John Constantine, an unscrupulous exorcist and master of the dark arts, recovers in a mental institution following a failed exorcism; a result of the failure is that his soul is damned. He receives a supernatural warning about Liv Aberdine, who is threatened by mysterious forces. Constantine gives her a pendant that belonged to her father, which allows her to see trapped souls. He introduces her to scrying, a mystic art that predicts where demonic activity will occur. Aberdine is being stalked by the demon Furcifer. Constantine coerces help from a drug-addicted metaphysics professor who assisted in the failed exorcism. Together they trap Furcifer and send him back to Hell. It is all too much for Liv; she leaves John the pendant and a map used in the art before she disappears. He tells an associate that he scared her away intentionally because the life of an exorcist is difficult and unpleasant. Elsewhere, a female artist has visions of Constantine.

John accidentally meets Zed Martin, an artist with a mysterious past who recognizes him as the subject of her psychic visions. Constantine uses her abilities in his investigation. They discover that a Romani woman summoned the spirits to punish the mine bosses and kill her husband. After the woman is killed by the spirits, Zed agrees to join John in his fight against evil.

John and Zed travel to Chicago in search of an allegedly cursed Gramophone record known as "the Acetate". Legend indicates that the Acetate contains a recording of the Devil's voice, captured when the Devil claimed the soul of Memphis bluesman Willy Cole. The record supposedly freezes anyone who touches it and possesses the weak-minded; anyone who listens to the recording dies. John and Zed learn that Papa Midnite, a voodoo priest, wants to obtain the record; he believes he can use it to bargain for his own soul. Midnite's hired men are possessed by the Acetate and attempt mass murder by broadcasting the recording. Constantine defeats them at a radio station before it airs, and sends the Acetate to Hell. Papa Midnite swears vengeance.

John identifies it as a hunger demon named Mnemoth. Zed sketches symbols from her latest vision that John can use against Mnemoth. John and Nommo use psychotropics to learn that Mnemoth can be stopped only by trapping it in a human body, which will die along with the demon. John secretly intends to use Gary to contain the demon. Gary discovers the ruse and agrees; he sees it as an opportunity to atone for past sins and give his life meaning. After the ritual succeeds, John takes Gary to the millhouse and holds Gary's hand while Mnemoth tortures him to death. Manny stands ready to guide Gary's soul to the afterlife.

Manny arrives to discuss John's own childhood abuse, and suggests that John can help the possessed boy and the spirit only if he truly understands their suffering.

Production[edit]

The series was developed by Daniel Cerone and David S. Goyer, with the pilot episode directed by Neil Marshall.[17] The show remains more faithful to the source material than the 2005 film, although on-screen depiction of Constantine's chain-smoking habit will be absent because of broadcast television restrictions[18][19] (the network eventually becomes more lenient and John is shown smoking on screen in later episodes). Additionally, the character's bisexuality will not be referenced on screen,[20] with Cerone saying, "In those comic books, John Constantine aged in real time. Within this tome of three decades [of comics] there might have been one or two issues where he's seen getting out of bed with a man. So [maybe] 20 years from now? But there are no immediate plans." This was met with criticism from the LGBTQ community.[21]

Griffiths was cast as the original female lead Liv Aberdine, the daughter of a late friend of John's called Jasper Winters, who comes to discover that she has the ability of seeing the supernatural world among us. She teams up with Constantine to fight the demons who have targeted her and learn more about her late father.[2] Griffiths was dropped after Goyer and Cerone decided to take the series in a different creative direction.[22] The comic character Zed was chosen as a replacement for the female lead.[22] Angélica Celaya was later announced to fill the role. Some of Griffiths' final scenes from the pilot were reshot, explaining why she does not join Constantine in his adventures as originally intended.[3] Both Goyer and Cerone have talked about a possible return for Liv.[23]

In November 2014, NBC announced that they would not be ordering more episodes past the initial order of 13 for the first season, though a second season renewal was not ruled out.[24] When questioned about the chances of the series return in January 2015, NBC president Jennifer Salke said, "We wish the show would’ve done better live. It has a big [delayed] viewership and a younger audience. We love the show and it’s safe to say we're still talking about it." NBC entertainment chairman Robert Greenblatt added, "We got on the comic books bandwagon. Maybe, there are too many of them."[25] In February 2015, Cerone reconfirmed that the series had not been cancelled and that the producers would pitch their ideas for an additional season to NBC in May 2015.[26] In mid-April 2015, Cerone stated it was "a long shot" that the series would be renewed, adding "While we marginally improved a tough time slot for NBC, we're a very expensive show to produce. A lot of NBC's decision making will not [sic] doubt hinge on their new pilots and how they feel those new shows would fare as a companion piece to Grimm, versus a second season of Constantine."[27] On April 23, Cerone tweeted that the producers would pitch their ideas for a second season on April 27, which was earlier than he had previously announced in February, with NBC making their decision in early May.[28] Following the meeting, Cerone tweeted that the "NBC exec said [to] tell the fans it went well" and that "If this show comes back for more, I can honestly say it was the fans."[29][30]

On May 8, 2015, NBC declined to renew the series for a second season, prompting Warner Bros. Television to shop the series around in an attempt to get it picked up by another network.[31] A month later, Cerone revealed that the cast and crew were released from their contracts after Warner Bros. Television had "tried to find a new home for the show... but those efforts didn’t pan out", and stated "that the show is over." On the many fans who voiced their support for the series in attempting to get it renewed, Cerone said, "we’re leaving behind wild and passionate fans who believe in and were moved by what we tried to do. To leave such a significant, dedicated and active fan base on the table — that’s the real sadness. You all deserve many years of the series we set out to make, and we’re disappointed that we couldn’t deliver that to you."[32]

Broadcast[edit]

Constantine aired simultaneously on Global in Canada.[33] In the United Kingdom, the series was acquired by Amazon Instant Video.[34]

Critical response[edit]

The review aggregator website Rotten Tomatoes reported a 72% critic approval rating with an average rating of 6.2/10 based on 46 reviews. The website's consensus reads, "Constantine‍ '​s creepy atmosphere, high-stakes action, and splendid special effects combine with a welcome touch of humor to overcome narrative flaws and present a version of the title character that's close to his comics counterpart."[48] Metacritic, which uses a weighted average, assigned a score of 53 out of 100 based on 25 reviews, indicating "mixed or average reviews".[49]

Web series[edit]

DC Entertainment has released a clay-stop motion animation web series called John Con Noir. The web series is developed by Cool Town Creations to support the petition for the television series to be renewed for a second season.[50][51] The first chapter was released on January 16, 2015 on the DC Comics official website and YouTube account, in addition to the mid-season premiere on NBC.[50]

Ryan reprises the role of John Constantine as the character tries to find his own program's creators and showrunners, Goyer and Cerone, after they go missing. If Constantine does not succeed, then the NBC network will have no other choice but to cancel the program.

Shared universe[edit]

In May 2015, Stephen Amell, who portrays Oliver Queen / Arrow on The CW's Arrow, revealed he had discussions with DC Entertainment to portray the character on the show, saying, "The reason that I was going to guest star on Constantine, at least the idea that we were throwing around was [Constantine's] an expert when it comes to the Lazarus Pit, which is now something that is a part of and will continue to be a part of Arrow." Amell stated that, even though Constantine was not renewed for a second season, a crossover "was and is still on the table".[52] Additionally, Arrow showrunner Marc Guggenheim revealed a desire to integrate Constantine into the universe that had been created with Arrow, saying, “A lot of the pieces are in place, except for that one final piece, which is what’s the fate of Constantine? That’s the tricky thing. But it comes up in the writers’ room constantly — we have a number of ideas, one idea that’s particularly exciting to me. We’re in a little bit of a wait-and-see mode”.[53] In July 2015, additional Arrow showrunner Wendy Mericle added, "we really want to [include Constantine]. It's something we've been talking to DC about and it's just a question of some political things, but also the actor's schedule. We're trying to work it out, but we don't know 100 percent if it's going to happen. But we're really optimistic and we would love to have him," presumably talking about Ryan.[54]
