    Yeah, I was also expecting this to just continue off from where the live-action show left off, but maybe by "reboot" they mean that it will seem more closely tied to the Arrowverse compared to the original show o_O?

    Those read like the plot summary of the Constantine TV show...which I guess is fitting ;).

    I kept remembering The Ray and forgot this was happening as well. A release timed for Halloween would have been awesome.

    Lukic, DeMatteis, and Murphy -- I've become way more interested. A few demon designs from JLD -- a nice coincidence since DeMatteis was originally writing that movie then had another project(s) then Altbacker took over I think.

    True, but a world where the Nazis won is a close second.

    Here's the Sneak Peek. Note that there's some strong language and lots of violence in there.

    Okay, I did not expect any TV-MA material coming from CW!

    Seems in-line with the tone of the TV show...

    According to DeMatteis, the animated series is stand-alone and not a continuation of the live-action show.

    That is a confusing response. That is clearly a Bruja that massacred the demons. As in a member of the La Brujeria the behind-the-scenes Palpatine Big Bads of the live action series who turned out to be working for the angel helping John all along.

    On second thought, I think DeMatteis is saying it's not directly continuation of the live action series that will wrap the series arc up so don't think of this webiseries as Season 2. It'll just be a story that takes place after Season 1. I hope.

    If the CW ever brings the live-action series back, I hope it is TV-MA too. :)

    I didn't say I want it to be TV-MA, I was just surprised they actually went there. ^^;

    Sounds like the go-to plan with the CWSeed series is releasing them on the site and then re-packaging them in movie form for the DVD :cool:.

    Also fitting to have DeMatteis once again working in the DCU "Dark" world, more or less ;).

    Getting Devil May Cry anime series vibes. I'm okay with that.

    Stray thought but I'm wondering if the plan is to alternate between The Ray and Constantine such as air first 6 of The Ray in December, first 6 of Constantine in January, last 6 of The Ray in February and last 6 of Constantine in March (or spread it out even more like every two months granted production is running smoothly).
