Constantine Could Get New Life on Syfy

The Constantine TV show has been running on NBC for awhile now but middling ratings and reviews are starting to put a second season in doubt, at least at that network.

With the first 13 episode season about to finish airing, NBC hasn't mentioned anything about bringing the show back. Constantine earned mediocre reviews at the start of its run but has been earning more praise of late as it starts to find its feet, a necessary process for any new show, especially one with so many elements to juggle.

Now there's news that NBC may drop the series, but that it could be picked up by Syfy. The move could also come with a name change to Hellblazer, which is title of DC's source comic book series. That switch-up would allow the show to create a new identity while moving away from network TV would give it more leeway with lurid material, not to mention allowing John to finally smoke some damn cigarettes.

This is still very much a rumour but it would be a great move for fans of the show, especially with the lower audience expectations on Syfy. Naturally there's no word on whether the cast and crew would survive such a move.

Constantine finishes its run on NBC in the US on the 13th of February 2015.
