NBC announces Constantine return date and time-slot

Constantine - Season Pilot

  When NBC’s take on DC/Vertigo’s chain-smoking anti-hero struggled in the ratings, the network halted production on Constantine after 13 episodes. Middling critical response and a terrible time-slot (Friday nights at 10 pm) didn’t help its cause, and the question became when/if NBC would ever air those remaining episodes after its mid-season finale capped out at […]

Captain America’s Shield and Joe Quesada show up on the Stephen Colbert farewell

There were few dry eyes across America as Stephen Colbert wrapped up his nine year run on The Colbert Report—and staying in character, instead of breaking the wall and getting sentimental, he went gonzo fantasy, defeating Grimmy, his long time nemesis, or Death himself, and gaining immortality.

13 is the unlucky number of episodes for CONSTANTINE

ConstantineHelmet

Constantine’s production has been halted at 13 episodes, Deadline reports, but it may not be gone for good. While NBC recently made a similar decision on freshmen comedy series Bad Judge and A to Z, I hear the circumstances are different. While Bad Judge and A to Z had been de facto cancelled, Constantine remains […]

We’ve had a lighthearted take on Archie in the wider media for a long time—from Sugar Sugar to Sabrina, but it’s time to take a more serious look at the world of Riverdale.
