NBC has released the first trailer for its newest supernatural show called Constantine.  It’s based on the DC comic book series called “Hellblazer” and will join the Friday line up with Grimm. It stars actor Matt Ryan as John Constantine, who battles against demons and other evil spirits in order to protect his close friend’s daughter, Liv Aberdine (Lucy Griffiths).

Check out the new trailer below!

So far Constantine looks like a good addition to NBC’s supernatural line up, especially now that Dracula has been cancelled. With an emphasis on demons and what looks to be a hell mouth, we can’t help but be reminded of the good ol’ days of Buffy The Vampire Slayer.

Here’s the full synopsis from the NBC website,

Based on the wildly popular comic book series “Hellblazer” from DC Comics, seasoned demon hunter and master of the occult John Constantine 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, 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. And 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.
