Constantine gets an October premiere date

06.02.2014

Antihero John Constantine is set to conjure up his own brand of cons and magic this fall on NBC and an exact date has now been provided. Mark your calendars for Friday October 24, at 10pm ET for the premier episode of CONSTANTINE. As we know, David Goyer is producing the show which features Matt Ryan as the titular character.

The trailer, which you can watch below, did a good job at quieting some naysayers who figured because the show was on NBC that it wouldn’t stay true to the comics tone.

Here's the series synopsis:

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. And 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.

While Friday night is not the greatest time slot, it will air after GRIMM so hopefully some fans of that show stick around to give CONSTANTINE the numbers it will need to survive. Other DC Entertainment shows coming trying out this fall include the Batman prequel series GOTHAM (watch the trailer) on Fox, IZOMBIE and THE FLASH (watch the trailer) on the CW. My Friday nights are looking better though; have you been watching HANNIBAL?  It's one of the best shows on TV and returns for season 3 next year.

Is it just me?

Or does it not seem like they cast a female lead with a resemblance to Rachel Weisz in an attempt to get people to watch this?

I think a Halloween tie-in date is a good idea. Shame about the Friday Night death slot. Hopefully, the legions of fans that follow Supernatural will get hooked on Constantine too.

To those who say 10pm on a Friday is a slot killer on NBC, I say this...

Hannibal.

Holiest, Hannibal is a drama series on NBC that's on the Friday night 10pm time slot. It's heading into its 3rd season and it is arguably the best drama series that NBC has ever had (Not one bad episode. Not one).. It's a serialized adaptation of the Hannibal series (Red Dragon, Silence of the Lambs, Hannibal and Hannibal rising) and it teeters dangerously close to HBO style violence. The show gets away with a lot of funked up sheit and is able to take more liberties because of the time slot

Personally speaking the show is seemingly flawless and the best written and smartest series that has ever hit basic cable

I really liked the trailer

but that Friday at 10 pm slot is a killer; I'd be very surprised if this doesn't go the way of FIREFLY.

Still don't like the idea of the show airing on Friday nights. Every new show that I ever watched that aired on Fridays were all eventually canceled (Magic City, Enlisted, and Dracula to name a few).

It looks like NBC has no faith in this show by giving it a time slot of 10 p.m. on Friday. Shame.
