No 2nd Season For CONSTANTINE; ARROW's Stephen Amell Supports A Renewal

NBC has declined to renew Constantine for a second season…but the show isn’t quite dead yet.

Executive Producer Daniel Cerone broke the news via Twitter, but says that Warner Bros. is still shopping the series around in hopes of finding it a new home.

While the show never drew a huge audience in its difficult Friday night timeslot, where it was meant to serve as a companion piece to Grimm, the adaptation of the popular DC Comics character has found a cult following that is still hoping to #SaveConstantine.

Arrow lead Stephen Amell has came out in full support for his fellow DC TV show - pledging to guest star on it, were it picked up by another suitor. Since then, Amell has revealed that genuine discussions about an Arrow/Constantine crossover have indeed happened in the past, over at DC Entertainment.

While speaking at Wizard World Philadelphia Comic Con, Amell talked candidly about the wildly popular DC TV universe - and the potential for interconnectivity between any of its shows, including Constantine. Check out what he had to say below :

"There is an opportunity for interconnectivity with any DC television show that exists. Like, as an example, yesterday Constantine was cancelled. And there is…yeah, I know, it’s brutal…it’s a good show, and it should come back. And it may come back, like there are various platforms where it could come back.”
“Now, Constantine was an NBC show. I’m on The CW. I had had discussions with DC… so not NBC, not CW… but with DC Entertainment about guest starring on Constantine when it was still on the air. And that was and is still on the table. So we have Flash, we have Legends of Tomorrow, a new show which is directly connected to the Arrow universe, we have Supergirl… I’m sure it’s going to be amazing… there’s Gotham obviously, and I’m missing something… Titans, there you go... we have no shortage of options for me and other characters to populate.”

While it may be difficult to see the supernatural procedural and urban superhero drama meshing together at first, Amell explained that there had always been a very specific reason behind a potential crossover:

“The reason that I was going to guest star on Constantine, at least the idea that we were throwing around was he’s an expert when it comes to the Lazarus Pit, which is now something that is a part of and will continue to be a part of Arrow.””

While it's dissappointing we never got to see this crossover this year, there may yet be some hope for next season. Amell claimed that the likes of Geoff Johns, Jim Lee and his Flash co-star Grant Gustin had joined him in throwing in their support for a surprise pick-up for Constantine.
