NBC has given the word to the cast of one of its new fall dramas that no new episodes will be ordered this season beyond the first 13. Cast members on “Constantine” got the news Friday, Deadline.com reports.
Nonetheless, the show remains a contender for getting a second-season renewal, the report notes. The show will continue to run Fridays at 10 p.m. until all the new episodes are exhausted.
Deadline noted that if NBC had wanted to keep the show in continuous production it would have had to make a decision with ratings information from just a handful of episodes, because the show’s launch was delayed until late October.
Developed by Daniel Cerone and David S. Goyer, the show stars Matt Ryan as demon hunter John Constantine, with Angelica Celaya and Charles Helford also among the series regulars.
