The CW announced today during the Television Critics Association press tour that John Constantine (Matt Ryan) will appear in Arrow Season 4, Episode 5, entitled “Haunted.” John Constantine is described as a weather worn exorcist and expert on the supernatural and the occult.  He is a detective, magician, and a hunter of demons, and will provide critical support to Oliver (Stephen Amell) when arrows aren’t enough.

“We are thrilled to have Matt Ryan reprise the role of John Constantine on an upcoming episode of Arrow,” said EP Marc Guggenheim. “Matt is an incredibly talented actor and his portrayal of this beloved character was always something we admired. 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.”

Last year Constantine filmed just 13 episodes in its first and only season on NBC. Luckily for us, Warner Bros. decided to keep the character alive and kicking for our viewing pleasure. Are you excited for the Arrow / Constantine crossover? Honestly, the last season of Arrow left a pretty rotten taste in our mouths and we can’t imagine the show getting any worse–with or without the help of John Constantine.
