After months of fighting for a second season, “Constantine” has lost its battle when NBC turned down the show’s renewal. However, it doesn’t mean that it’s the end for the show. Read on.

According to Den of Geek, “Constantine” is looking for a new home. The reason why NBC axed the show is that it didn’t gain the ratings that are expected of it. When the news came out, a surge of #SaveConstantine on social media sites that have been going around for months now doubled up.

Daniel Cerone, co-creator of the series expressed his sadness via Twitter:

“NBC a “no” for Season 2. Warner Bros working hard to find #Constantine new home. Stay active. Stream. Tweet. #SaveConstantine #Hellblazers.”

The pitch that he has presented in April didn’t make the cut obviously since the network still cancelled the series.

There have been suggestions that the series take it up to The CW. It was  since it pays homage to other DC Comics TV series. However, there are no formal negotiations happening between the two.

Even “Arrow’s” Stephen Ammell tried to help by tweeting:

“Hey, TV Networks/Netflix and the like… if you pick up the show, I’ll guest star. Can’t wait. Constantine and Queen want to get sh*t done. Let’s make it happen.”

It looks like the battle isn’t over yet for “Constantine.” There is still a glimmer of hope for this series so fans should definitely keep their fingers crossed and spread the word to save the series. If Cerone is fighting hard for it, well it must be really worth fighting for.
