Good news Constantine fans. The entire series (so one season) of Constantine is available to stream on CW Seed. And the best part? It’s completely free.
No, this is not a joke.
Constantine, based on DC Comics’ Hellblazer series, premiered in the fall of 2014 on NBC (not CW), but after not reaching the expected ratings, the show was cancelled. The series’ first and only season ran for 13 episodes and ended in February 2015. Matt Ryan plays title character John Constantine, a demon hunter and occult master whose soul is damned. Due the state of his soul he has abandoned his mission to fight evil, but gets drawn back into the fight.
After the series was canceled, fans tried to start a campaign to get it a second life elsewhere. The show’s fans were hopeful they might see more of the supernatural detective and protested Constantine‘s cancellation. They took to the internet and tried to beat the ratings to bring back their favorite British demon hunter, hoping another network or even Netflix would pick up the series. But in June 2015 executive producer Daniel Cerone announced that the show would not be getting a second chance.
Supposedly that was the end. The Constantine fandom thought there would be no more of the sarcastic, trench coat-wearing hellblazer, but then the CW announced back on Aug. 11 that TV had not seen the last of John Constantine and he would be making a special appearance in season 4 of Arrow.
The CW’s adoption of Constantine and addition to its new online library is possibly partly due to the fact that Constantine’s special appearance on Arrow resulted in one of the highest rated episodes for the series since the season 4 premiere.
Currently, Constantine unavailable for purchase either as a download or DVD/Blue-ray set, which is why CW Seed streaming it is almost a miracle for fans. You can now watch Constantine online through CW Seed or on your phone or tablet with the CW Seed app. And there is a CW Seed app for Roku as well if you want to watch it on your TV.
So what is CW Seed? Well the CWTV.com describes is as “the CW’s digital home for comedy, animation, and hundreds of hours of your favorite shows.”
Too long, didn’t read? You can watch the all of Constantine on CW Seed for free.
