It's a sad day for fans of Constantine. The show is officially dead, according to showrunner Daniel Cerone. He made the announcement through Twitlonger, after keeping fans of the show as updated as possible about the future of the show.

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.

Cerone continued to talk about the show and writing as a whole. "nobody I know ever chose a writing career -- it chose them." He thanked the fan base of the show and it's pretty obvious that he's extremely disappointed.

NBC's Constantine has been on a rollercoaster of a ride, since it started. It originally only got a half-order for season one and most people thought that meant it would be canceled. NBC didn't make any sort of official announcement about the show, and that's when the rumors started. Fans waited patiently for NBC to pick it up for another season, and even after a successful weekend of streaming the show over the net, NBC decided to pass on season two.

However, showrunner Daniel Cerone tried his best to take this to another network, and fans wondered who would pick it up. Many thought that CW was going to add it to it's collection of DC properties and others thought that Syfy was a good place for it to go. This continued for the past couple of months with Cerone updating everyone through Twitter.

Sadly, it's a huge bummer to see Constantine not come back for season two, since there was a lot of potential there and the first season was pretty great. What do you think?
