Constantine was cancelled by NBC after just one season. The character of Constantine will live on, but David Goyer thinks the series could have lived on too – if it was on a different network.
Goyer is currently out promoting the third and final season of Da Vinci’s Demons, and he took a moment to speak about Constantine, according to Variety.
Constantine landed on NBC, but was the network the right fit for it? Could a basic cable network been a better fit? Goyer thinks so.
“I loved Constantine. In retrospect, I don’t think it should have been on NBC. I think it was the wrong channel and I’m sure they probably agree with that as well. We almost doubled our numbers in DVR numbers, but they weren’t quite there in network television in counting those metrics. If it had been on a basic cable channel, it could still be on.”
Fans will be able to see Matt Ryan as Constantine on November 4 episode of Arrow. He has a connection to the resurrection story line involving Sara Lance.
After the series was cancelled by NBC, many fans brought up the SyFy channel as a venue for the cancelled series. There were rumors that the network was interested, but the rumors were debunked, according to Cinema Blend.
With Goyer mentioning basic cable in his comments, would SyFy have been a better fit for Constantine? Tell us what you think.
NBC. TOTALLY SUCKS.!! REAL, FAKE , FAKE, FAKE,!! station.
Definitely CW OR FOX. EITHER WOULD HAVE BEEN THE BETTER CHOICE NEXT TO NBC. REALLY WISH THERE WAS A WAY TO CHOOSE WHAT YOU WANTED TO WATCH ON AN INDIVIDUAL LEVEL, INSTEAD OF A POLL TAKEN BY OTHERS. WHY ISNT THERE A NETWORK OF CHANNELS THAT GIVES US THE CHOICE TO CHOOSE AND WATCH WHAT EVER WE WANT!?!?!
The problem with NBC is that the station is struggling trying to find the right market to generate shows to. They are very behind with the kind of quality certain shows can provide. FOX, CW, and others know their market; NBC obviously does not. Whoever the programming managers are, and because of their pre conceive misguided, ideas of what’s good and what’s bad; is causing NBC managers to cancelled good quality shows.
To put it bluntly, they don’t know what the “Hell” they are doing.
