Zatannurday: The Fate of Constantine

Zatanna's sometimes love interest John Constantine's fate is still up in the air.

As of this week (ending 2/7) we still have not heard if the NBC show "Constantine" has been renewed or not.

Next week is the 13th and last episode of the season.  So I didn't get my wish to see and John and Zatanna moment on the show.

Another show that came close was Smallville, though they did manage it in the pages of the Smallville comic, Harbinger.

Not only that it also has John and Zee's first meeting in the Smallville universe.

Not exactly the same as the Justice League Dark meeting.

The story is spread out over 4 issues and has a lot of what makes John and Zee so great together.

It even features the introduction of Rachel Roth, aka Raven to the Smallville universe.
She is the girl that John and Zee rescue from Brother Blood.
So Zatanna, Constantine and Raven?  All in one comic at the same time?  Sounds great to me!

Might be the closest we get.

I'm enjoying Constantine - I hope it's picked up for more (or by someone else). But i won't hold my breath.

I think a quick cameo by Swamp Thing would have done the ratings a favor. And of course bringing Serinda Swan in for a quick Zatanna cameo wouldn't have hurt either!

Constantine has been patchy in my opinion, but if they're going to introduce The Spectre then I'll be a fan for life.

Bring in a quality representation of Swamp Thing and my little geeky head would explode ;-)

There's certainly potential there and the show just needs room to breathe, grow and establish its own identity.

I hope it comes back for a second season. Read today there's an idea that it might move to SyFy and be rebranded Hellblazer but I suspect that was just wishful thinking.

It's NBC. You can count on them making not only the wrong decision, but to make it in a way that causes you the most personal aggravation, pain, and disgust.
