VIDEO: First Look at NBC's Constantine

While Gotham has gotten off to a great start and Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., despite it's low ratings, has picked up where it left off last season, other shows haven't even gotten going yet. One such show is Constantine, set to debut October 24th. After the jump, take a look at a sneak peak.

This show has had my interest for a while now and I'm sure to check out the first few episodes. We are living in a great time, my friends. 5 comic book-related TV shows a week sounds fine to me!

The first episode, "Non Est Asylum", is set to air Friday, October 24th at 10/9 Central on NBC.


John Constantine is a man waging war against the forces of darkness -- from both within himself and the outside world. An irreverent, working-class con man and occult expert, he's an experienced exorcist and demonologist with an extensive list of supernatural contacts, with their own paranormal talents and abilities. Following the aftermath of a tragic incident, Constantine has voluntarily checked himself into an asylum and sworn off investigating matters of the supernatural. But when a cryptic message calls him out to reluctantly resume his old life, he finds himself saving the life of a young woman, Liv, whom he's never met -- but is connected to in a very important way. For Liv is something of a human compass for dark forces -- able to locate and see the supernatural world that the rest of us cannot. With these forces gathering power in the world, Constantine and Liv ally themselves with Manny, a rogue warrior angel, and Chas, Constantine's giant childhood protector -- the only friend who's managed to stay alive. Based upon characters published by DC Entertainment and executive produced by Daniel Cerone (The Mentalist) and David S. Goyer (Man of Steel, The Dark Knight films), CONSTANTINE reflects the lore of the fan-favorite comic, combining noirish storytelling with the evolving mythology of John Constantine, a morally challenged character who doesn't come down on the side of either good or evil ... but ultimately might be the only thing defending us against the dark forces from beyond.
