Having made his return to the Arrowverse with a recent guest role in DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, Matt Ryan reprises the role of supernatural detective John Constantine once again this month for CW Seed’s new animated series.
Announced back in October of last year, it has now been revealed that Constantine will premiere on March 24th at WonderCon, before making its way online at CWSeed.com that very same day.
Constantine will be the second DC animated series from CW Seed after Vixen, although unlike that series, these episodes will run for ten minutes apiece, rather than Vixen’s short 2-3 minute running time.
This all-new animated series from Warner Bros. Animation and Blue Ribbon Content follows DC’s popular comic book character John Constantine (voiced by the live action series star 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.
Executive produced by David S. Goyer (The Dark Knight trilogy, Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, Constantine [live action series]. upcoming Krypton), Greg Berlanti (The Flash, Arrow, Supergirl), and Sarah Schechter (Blindspot, Riverdale, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow), the series, which will premiere on CW Seed in early 2018, is produced by Butch Lukic (Justice League Action, Batman Unlimited), written by J.M. DeMatteis (Justice League Dark, Batman vs. Robin) and directed by Doug Murphy (Justice League Action, Young Justice).
