NBC will halt production of drama series “Constantine” after its initial 13-episode order, although the show remains a contender for a second series with series stars Matt Ryan, Angela Celaya, Harold Perrineau and Charles Halford keen to remain involved.
The Warner Bros. TV adaptation of the DC Comics property has been airing as a Friday 10 p.m. companion to “Grimm.” Despite the decision to cap season one at 13 segs, execs are encouraged by “Constantine’s” lead-in retention and DVR lift.
Since its Oct. 24 premiere, “Constantine” has averaged a 1.4 rating/5 share in adults 18-49 and 4.5 million total viewers. That’s a respectable number for a Friday series. The is still no UK broadcaster for Constantine, although it can be viewed via Amazon Prime Instant Video.
