Last February, the thirteenth episode of Constantine aired on NBC, putting the cap on a killer first season that earned the DC and Vertigo Comics adaptation a devoted base of fans. Since then, all’s been relatively quiet on the Constantine front…until now.
Today, NBC announced that they were making all 13 episodes of Constantine available for streaming on NBC.com, Hulu and VOD for a limited time. If you missed out on Constantine when it originally aired or only caught a few episodes, there’s never been a better time to catch up. Over the course of its season, Constantine quickly developed into one of the more faithful comic book adaptations we’ve seen so far—taking its tone and story cues largely from Vertigo’s Hellblazer.
If you haven’t yet seen it, you should. If you have, now’s a great time to rewatch it, especially if you’re on Twitter. Many of the show’s stars and writers will be live-tweeting select episodes over the next three days, giving you an opportunity to go deeper into the world of John Constantine as you stream the episodes.
Here’s the schedule, along with links to the appropriate Twitter accounts (all listed times are PST):
