Constantine is coming back to the CW, a bit more two-dimensional than the last time we saw him on Arrow, through a new animated series. And if you were dying for more of Matt Ryan in action as the sarcastic spell-slinging demon hunter, then this preview should be more than enough to whet your appetite.

Unveiled at New York Comic Con this weekend, the preview clip sees Constantine — now looking much more like his Justice League Dark counterpart than what we saw in the art for the animated show’s announcement — doing what he does best, which is tricking demons and making underhanded deals with other demons.
It’s great, and although the clip focuses more on the mayhem of a gory fight between the demons Constantine is trying to play off of each other, it’s joyful to hear Matt Ryan in action again. Justice League Dark gave us a great interpretation of Ryan’s Constantine, but to have him back in the CW/DC world, albeit in animated form, just feels right.
Constantine hits the CW’s streaming service, Seed, in the US soon. An Australian broadcast has not yet been announced.
