Constantine Fan Petition Started to Move Show to new Network

It has been awhile since NBC decided to not pick up the Constantine show for a second season. Since then fans have been clamoring for a way to save the show about the famed DC/Vertigo occult detective character. Even actors such as William Shatner and Stephen Amell joined in on the crusade, which probably led to the crossover event with his Arrow tv show. The episode, titled “Haunted,” sparked an 11% ratings increase in the show’s core demographic. Matt Ryan was perfect as the Hellblazer, and it seems that fans of the Arrow agree.

Now a Change.org petition, titled “Save Constantine,” has popped up in hopes to help move the show onto another network. Executive producer David Goyer has stated that part of the reason why Constantine failed was because NBC was “the wrong channel” for such material. The petitioners agree and have listed The CW, El Rey Network, Yahoo Screen, Netflix, and USA as possible replacement homes for the show.

I think the El Rey Network would be a great place for the show, and I have doubts that Netflix would pick it up considering their contracts with Marvel. Constantine is now officially a part of the Arrowverse, along with The Flash and upcoming show Legends of Tomorrow, so it would be in the best interest of The CW to expand on that fanbase. ~SumOne
