CONSTANTINE & MADAME X Shows Both Dead At HBO Max In The Wake Of Sequel News

While this should come as no surprise, especially with J.J. Abrams producing the movie sequel, it's been confirmed that neither the Constantine nor Madame X shows are moving forward at HBO Max.

Following last night's bombshell sequel announcement, Variety has confirmed that neither the Constantine TV series from J.J. Abrams nor the Madame X show from producer Angela Robinson will be moving forward at HBO Max. 

Per their report, only four scripts had been written for the Constantine series, which would've been set in contemporary London. There had been early negotiations with an actor for the leading role, but once plans for the long-awaited movie sequel came together, talks presumably fell apart. 

While neither series will be coming to HBO Max, sources are bullish that both could potentially be revived at a different network or streaming service. Warner Bros. Television and Bad Robot Productions are reportedly actively seeking a home for both shows, but it's too early to say whether they'll be successful in their endeavor, especially with Warner Bros. Discovery seemingly taking their DC slate in a drastically different direction. 

In case you missed it, it was reported last night that Keanu Reeves (John WickThe Matrix) and director Francis Lawrence (I Am LegendRed Sparrow) would reunite for a sequel to their 2005 supernatural thriller hit Constantine, which is being fast-tracked and has Akiva Goldsman (A Beautiful MindI Am Legend) penning the script. He's also attached as a producer under his Weed Road Pictures banner, alongside Bad Robot's J.J. Abrams and Hannah Minghella. 

With Abrams attached to the movie, it was somewhat expected that the TV series would not be moving forward, so it'll be interesting to see whether he'll actually pursue bringing an unrelated version to the small-screen or pivot to something else set in the Justice League Dark corner of the DC universe.
