So in all the election excitement I missed this little piece of bad news: Constantine has been cancelled.
I can’t say I’m particularly surprised. It hadn’t done well in terms of ratings, and when NBC’s other shows were renewed, it wasn’t. Which is a shame, really, because although it wasn’t perfect it had potential, and had been on an upward trajectory throughout.
It’s not “dead” dead yet, apparently; there’s an outside chance that it could be picked up by another network (A campaign backed by Captain Kirk, no less -Ed), but it remains to be seen whether anyone will pick it up.
For now I’m not holding my breath. Time to bring out the last rites, I think.
