Today NBC announced its Fall 2014 schedule, and while of course we don't give a rat's behind about the majority of what they'll be churning out, there's one program we're certainly keeping an eye on: "Constantine"! David S. Goyer's adaptation of DC Comics' Hellblazer comic series has just been given its debut date, and wouldn't you know it, it lands right in time for Halloween!
"Constantine", which stars Matt Ryan as the titular wise-ass from hell, will premiere on Friday, October 24th at 10pm ET. It follows the lead of "Grimm", which premieres at 9pm.
Based on the wildly popular DC Comics series “Hellblazer,” seasoned demon hunter and master of the occult John Constantine (Matt Ryan, “Criminal Minds”) 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 (Lucy Griffiths, “True Blood”), 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.
