The strength of the short-lived NBC show is unbelievable. Since the show finished airing in 2005 after just 13 brilliant episodes, we do seem to find it hard to let go. On a recent post, I revealed Matt Ryan’s John Constantine as my favourite DC character on TV. If you have seen this show before, chances are you will want to watch it again very soon. For those who haven’t, here is everything you need to know about the upcoming release.
As of this moment, the release is set for October 4th 2016 in the US. Although at the time of writing, there was no UK date set. Hopefully this will be rectified soon as I would very much like to own a copy of one of my favourite shows from the last few years. Worldwide I am not too sure on when it will be released, but it is a better promise than saying IF it will be released.
WHATS IN THE BOX
Being called The Complete Series, you know you will have all 13 broadcast episodes of the Hellblazer adaptation. The extras are there, just not too many to get excited about. First we have the Constantine Trailer (trailers have always been a popular feature). There is also Behind The Scenes footage for the release too. For the Comic-Con lovers amongst us, there will also be the 2014 SDCC panel which features cast and crew of the show from before it made its debut and finally a feature known as ‘DC Comics Night at Comic-Con 2014’.
WHY YOU SHOULD BUY IT
As we know, there has been a lot of internet buzz around Constantine returning in some shape or form. The biggest moment so far was Matt Ryan reprising his role for an episode of Arrow (please make more appearances, that was a great one!). With Matt Ryan coming back again to play the character for the animated feature Justice League Dark, there is certainly an audience for his take on the DC character. I think this may get some wheels into motion for potentially a new Constantine series (still think CW should have done Constantine Season 2 instead of Legends Of Tomorrow) and if popular enough, plenty more from this character in the future. Plus if you haven’t seen the show, I guarantee that having this in your collection will be a wise move and one you won’t regret.
Constantine: The Complete Series is out October 4th in the US and will be available through Amazon and other retailers. Expect international release dates soon!
