Exciting news! Seemingly out of nowhere, it was announced that John Constantine will be guest starring in an episode(s?!) of the upcoming fourth season of Arrow on the CW.
Constantine was on NBC for one season before being cancelled. Fans have been hoping to see the show brought back on the likes of Netflix or Hulu. Instead, the CW has announced he will be featured in at least one episode, properly named “Haunted”.
“We are thrilled to have Matt Ryan reprise the role of John Constantine on an upcoming episode of Arrow. Matt is an incredibly talented actor and his portrayal of this beloved character was always something we admired,” said Arrow producer Marc Guggenheim in a statement released by CW. “The introduction of magic and mysticism on the show this season has provided a truly organic opportunity for us to bring John Constantine to Arrow and the CW’s DC universe. It will be a well-deserved tip of the hat to all the Constantine fans who were so incredibly supportive of that series.”
We here at TGR are huge Arrow fans, and were also sad about the demise of Constantine by NBC. We are for sure looking forward to this crossover.
