NBC breathed life into Constantine, only to squash it. Then The CW gave him life for a night and they realized that people still wanted to see him live and help other people live. Therefore, they resurrecting him from the dead. In fact, you can say they are re-animating him. Actually, they are animating him.
Yesterday at The CW’s TCA Winter Press Day Mark Pedowitz, President of the network announced that, “Constantine is back as a new animated series for the CW Seed platform. It is from DC Comics, team (Greg) Berlanti and David S. Goyer and, of course, will feature star Matt Ryan as John Constantine.” Then he added, “Like our other animated CW Seed animated series, Vixen and”The Ray, we’ll have about five or six episodes that are about ten minutes each, premiering in the ’17 ’18 season.” That’s right, Ryan will reprise the role of the lovable anti-hero.
As of now that is all they know, but we know it is a magical thing to have him back in whatever way we can.
