Fans have been campaigning for Matt Ryan to return as Constantine for quite some time now. It’s evidently worked, as Ryan reprised his role in Arrow Season 4 and is now heading to CW Seed to front his own animated series – much like Vixen!
Constantine was most recently adapted for the small screen by NBC, but was cancelled after the first season. Since, he appeared in Arrow which seemingly confirmed his world is canon to that of the CW/DC-verse.
This news came from the Television Critics Association winter press tour, where it was announced that The CW had also renewed their other comic book properties (Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl, and Legends of Tomorrow) for another season.
Matt Ryan has expressed his love for the role many times, so it’s good to see him cling on to the character as his own for a little longer.
