Constantine may have had a 13-episode run starring Matt Ryan that came and went several years ago, but Ryan’s involvement with the character persisted over the years, appearing in a Justice League Dark animation as well as an animated series for CW Seed. He also has taken the character back in live action on both Arrow and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, the latter of which he will become a series regular on when the new season starts October 22.
That new season of Legends will be previewed during a special that The CW will air on Monday, October 15 after the Arrow season premiere. Dubbed Constantine: The Legend Continues, the special will include the animated digital series plus that special preview of Legends of Tomorrow Season 4.
Here’s the press release with more information:
THE CW SEED’S “CONSTANTINE: THE LEGEND CONTINUES” TO AIR ON THE CW NETWORK MONDAY, OCT. 15, FOLLOWING THE SEASON PREMIERE OF “ARROW”
The Special Also Contains a Sneak Preview of the New Season of “DC’s Legends Of Tomorrow”
August 24, 2018 (Burbank, CA) ─ CONSTANTINE: THE LEGEND CONTINUES, the animated digital series which debuted on CW Seed, The CW’s digital network, will receive a special broadcast airing on The CW Network, Monday, October 15 (9:00-10:00pm ET), following the season premiere of ARROW (8:00-9:00pm ET). The special will be hosted by John Constantine himself Matt Ryan (DC’S LEGENDS OF TOMORROW, “Constantine”).
Immediately following the special, The CW will present a sneak preview of the upcoming season of DC’S LEGENDS OF TOMORROW, featuring interviews with the stars and producers about what’s in store this season. DC’S LEGENDS OF TOMORROW premieres the following week Monday, October 22 (9:00-10:00pm ET).
CONSTANTINE: THE LEGEND CONTINUES follows DC’s popular comic book character John Constantine (voiced by DC’S LEGENDS OF TOMORROW’s Matt Ryan), a seasoned demon hunter and master of the occult. Armed with an arcane knowledge of the dark arts and a wicked wit, he fights the good fight. With his soul already damned to hell, he’ll do whatever it takes to protect the innocent. With the balance of good and evil on the line, Constantine uses his skills to face the supernatural terrors 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.
Based on characters from DC, CONSTANTINE: THE LEGEND CONTINUES is from Berlanti Productions and Phantom Four Films in association with Warner Bros. Animation and Blue Ribbon Content, with executive producers David S. Goyer, Greg Berlanti, Sarah Schecter, and Sam Register.
