Sorry, Hellblazers: Constantine is officially dead, with no hope for a revival at another network.
Executive producer Daniel Cerone wrote an extended message to fans on Twitter yesterday to announce that the show’s cast and crew are being released from their contracts. He says the series was shopped around to other networks and outlets in the hopes of finding it a new home, “but those efforts didn’t pan out.”
“I’m sorry, I wasn’t provided any information on the attempts to sell the show elsewhere. All I can report is that the show is over,” Cerone continued.
Cerone took part in the online efforts to keep hope for the show alive, updating fans when he heard of any movement on Constantine‘s future. He also joined with a Twitter effort that looked to have The CW pick up the show, since it’s already home to two (and soon to be three) DC Comics-based dramas. The online campaign saw fans and Constantine stars live-tweeting episodes, which were streaming on Hulu; celebrity fans like William Shatner and Arrow‘s Stephen Amell also foiced their support.
At the CW Upfronts, CW president Mark Pedowitz joked that the rumors Constantine might move to that network were just that—rumors.
“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,” Cerone wrote.
