Constantine The CW and CW Seed’s Constantine animated series, which will air during the 2017-18 TV season, spins out of the short-lived NBC live-action series of the same name.

Based on the DC character created in 1985, Constantine centers on John Constantine, a man who struggles with his faith as he is haunted by the sins of his past and suddenly is thrust into the role of defending humanity from the gathering forces of darkness. In the NBC series, he was a British exorcist and occult detective who spends his days hunting supernatural entities.

David Goyer, who worked on the live-action NBC series, will be an executive producer on the animated series, along with Greg Berlanti and Sarah Schechter, who also are executive producers on The CW’s slate of superhero-themed shows, including Arrow, The Flash, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow and Supergirl.
