Constantine is a television series and a modern retelling of the DC Comics series Hellblazer. The series ran for one season of thirteen episodes from October 24, 2014, until February 13, 2015. Actor Matt Ryan played the eponymous lead character, John Constantine. On May 8, 2015, the series was officially cancelled. After the series came to an end, showrunner Daniel Cerone released the script to what would've been the fourteenth episode; it's debatable as to whether it is in canon with the rest of the series.
Matt Ryan later returned to the role of Constantine in the fourth season of fellow DC Comics-based show , in the episode "" then on in a recurring role in the third and fourth seasons. He also portrayed the character in the crossover event.
Based on the wildly popular comic book series Hellblazer from DC Comics, seasoned demon hunter and master of the occult John Constantine specializes in giving hell... hell. Armed with a ferocious knowledge of the dark arts and his wickedly naughty wit, he fights the good fight — or at least he did. With his soul already damned to hell, he's decided to leave his do-gooder life behind, but when demons target Liv, the daughter of one of Constantine's oldest friends, he's reluctantly thrust back into the fray – and he'll do whatever it takes to save her. Before long, it's revealed that Liv's “second sight” — an ability to see the worlds behind our world and predict supernatural occurrences — is a threat to a mysterious new evil that's rising in the shadows. Now it's not just Liv who needs protection; the angels are starting to get worried too. So, together, Constantine and Liv must use her power and his skills to travel the country, find the demons that threaten our world and send them back where they belong. After that, who knows... maybe there's hope for him and his soul after all.
