NBC’s Constantine TV series lost Lucy Griffiths but they have just cast Angelica Celaya as Zed. Zed is an important character from the comics who will be introduced earlier than originally expected in the TV series. Zed will replace Liv (Griffiths) character completely as the new co-character. David Goyer (Executive Producer) wanted to move away from the teacher/student relationship and jump straight into the meat of the DC Comics Constantine lore.
Based on the wildly popular comic book series "Hellblazer" from DC Comics, seasoned demon hunter and master of the occult John Constantine (Matt Ryan, "Criminal Minds") specializes in giving hell… hell. Armed with a ferocious knowledge of the dark arts and his wickedly naughty wit, he fights the good fight—or at least he did. With his soul already damned to hell, he’s decided to leave his do-gooder life behind, but when demons target Liv (Lucy Griffiths, "True Blood"), the daughter of one of Constantine’s oldest friends, he’s reluctantly thrust back into the fray - and he’ll do whatever it takes to save her. Before long, it’s revealed that Liv’s "second sight"—an ability to see the worlds behind our world and predict Supernatural occurrences—is a threat to a mysterious new evil that’s rising in the shadows.
Now it’s not just Liv who needs protection; the angels are starting to get worried too. So, together, Constantine and Liv must use her power and his skills to travel the country, find the demons that threaten our world and send them back where they belong. After that, who knows… maybe there’s hope for him and his soul after all.
The cast also includes Harold Perrineau and Charles Halford. Writer Daniel Cerone ("The Mentalist," "Dexter") serves as executive producer with David S. Goyer ("Man of Steel," "The Dark Knight Rises"). "Constantine" is produced from Bonanza Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television. The show is based upon characters published by DC Entertainment.
