The fate of “Constantine” Season 2 is still unknown. Its current home network, NBC has renewed its shows already and the only show that it left is “Constantine.” However, it doesn’t necessarily mean that it’s over for the show because we’ve got some scoop on NBC’s plans for the show. Read on for more details.

Before the first season ends, the show has managed to gain a significant amount of fans. They placed their support through social media by spreading around the hashtag “#SaveConstantine.” NBC reacted to the plea of fans and it might just be the reason why the network hasn’t axed the show yet.

NBC is brainstorming ideas on what to do with the show and the most popular idea right is to move “Constantine” to SyFy. If this happens, the show will be renamed to its original comic book name, which is “Hellblazer.”

According to Techtimes.com,  the network ran a “marathon of the series on SyFy and it was well received by viewers.” It gives it higher chances to move on with its second season. With such results, the possibility that “Constantine be moved to SyFy may just become reality in the coming weeks or months.”

Moving on to SyFy may just give the show the chance to show its darker side since it looks like “Constantine” being in NBC is less darker compared to its comic book series. SyFy definitely has the capacity to host the show and let it be darker than ever to meet the expectations of “Constantine” fans especially those who follow the comic book series.

What do you think of “Constantine” being moved to SyFy? Do you think it’s a good idea? Are you one of the people who want a second season for the show? Let us know by posting your comments below!
