The people behind a drama series that was canceled after its run on NBC have released the cast of the show, “Constantine,” from their contracts after efforts to shop the series failed, The Hollywood Reporter’s Live Feed reports.
The story cites showrunner Daniel Cerone confirming the news on Twitter.
Cerone posted: “I promised I’d share news when I had it — sadly, that news is not good. The cast and writers of Constantine are being released from their contracts. The studio tried to find a new home for the show, for which we’re forever grateful, but those efforts didn’t pan out. I’m sorry, I wasn’t provided any information on the attempts to sell the show elsewhere. All I can report is that the show is over.”
Based on the DC Comics series “Hellblazer,” the show ran for one season on NBC, ending its run in February after 13 episodes. Matt Ryan starred as John Constantine.
