'Constantine' Showrunner Pitching Season 2 Ideas; NBC to Decide Fate This Spring

Constantine Season 2 NBC

The fate of John Constantine hangs in the balance as fans of NBC's adaptation of long-running Vertigo horror comic Hellblazer wait to find out if the show will get a second season. Constantine stars Matt Ryan in the title role as a duplicitous hedge magician attempting to redeem himself - after an attempted exorcism ended with an innocent girl's soul being damned to hell.

Now the series itself is waiting for redemption after a first season that was met with a lukewarm critical response and wobbly ratings. Constantine hasn't yet been cancelled but neither has it been renewed - though at one point there were rumors that NBC was considering moving the series to Syfy and renaming it Hellblazer.

We don't yet know what will happen to Constantine yet, but we do know when the decision regarding season two will be made. Showrunner Daniel Cerone has taken to Twitter to explain that the deadline for season two idea pitches has been set for the end of April, and NBC will decide whether or not to renew that show based on the strength of those pitches. This is slightly earlier than Cerone's previous claim that the deadline for pitches would be in May, but (allowing for time to mull over the ideas) NBC will probably still make a final decision in early May.
