Based on the popular comic book series Hellblazer, Constantine stars Matt Ryan (Criminal Minds: Suspect Behavior) as the titular demon hunter and master of the occult. He struggles with his faith as he is haunted by the sins of his past. However, he is suddenly thrust into the role of defending humanity from the gathering forces of darkness.
Griffiths was set to play leading lady Liv, who teams up with Constantine after she's marked for death by a demon. The role will not be recast. Instead, the show will introduce Zed, Constantine's right-hand woman. The character, who is featured in the Hellblazer comic books, has not yet been cast.
Constantine will premiere Friday, Oct. 24 at 10/9c on NBC.
