On The Air: Constantine: City of Demons (2018)

Occultist John Constantine (Matt Ryan) returns in an all-new online miniseries, airing on CW Seed, which is also home to reruns of the short-lived live-action Constantine.

In City of Demons, Constantine comes to the aid an old childhood friend whose daughter has been possessed by a demon. There are ties to the live-action Constantine, and the continuity follows last year's "Justice League Dark" film.

City of Demons also reunites Constantine with co-executive producer David S. Goyer (Krypton), who was the show-runner for the earlier series. Goyer teams with Greg Berlanti ("Love, Simon", Arrow, Supergirl, etc.) this time around. The first 5 episodes are available for viewing after premiering at WonderCon two weeks ago. 7 additional episodes will be released later this year.

Right now, scope the opening chapter.

There are plans to release this as a full-length film with additional footage after the remaining episodes are released.

Rating: A.
