If we're being honest, "Constantine" has been dead for a while.
"Constantine" has been dead since November when NBC confirmed that the DC Comics adaptation wouldn't get a back-nine order. The number of network shows that do low ratings in the fall, fail to get back-nine orders and then somehow get picked up for additional episodes the next season is basically "zero."
"Constantine" has also been dead since February, when the series finale did a 0.8 rating among adults 18-49, capping off a season in which even factoring in DVR numbers, the series was barely doing "Dracula"-level ratings.
And, most significantly, "Constantine" has been dead since May when NBC confirmed that at least as far as NBC was concerned, the series was cancelled.
Through it all, showrunner Daniel Cerone has kept hope alive for fans with nebulous tweets about pitching future seasons to NBC and Warner Brothers pitching the potentially desirable -- were it not for a season of dismal ratings and a not-insignificant price tag -- property to other homes. Fans have kept their own spirits up with completely irrelevant beacons like Stephen Amell volunteering to appear in a "Constantine" crossover with "Arrow."
But on Sunday afternoon, Cerone finally gave up the ghost.
