Fresh off the news that it will air on Friday nights at 10pm this fall, NBC has released the first Constantine trailer for the DC Comics adaptation. Based on the long-running comics series Hellblazer, this new take on the character (played by Matt Ryan) sees him working as a supernatural detective protecting the world from dark forces. Initially he’s decided to leave his do-gooder life behind, but when the daughter (Lucy Griffiths) of one of his oldest friends is targeted by demons, he decides to team up with her and go demon hunting. Based on this first look, the show appears to mix the supernatural elements with some good-natured humor, making it a swell Friday fit alongside Grimm—much better than that supernatural series’ current companion, the dark and twisted Hannibal.
Hit the jump to watch the Constantine trailer. Neil Marshall (The Descent) directed the pilot, and Daniel Cerone (The Mentalist) serves as executive producer alongside David S. Goyer. The series also stars Harold Perrineau (Lost) and Charles Halford (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.). Constantine will debut on NBC this fall.
