NBC has decided not to order a back nine for its freshman drama — based on DC Comics’ Hellblazer series — meaning Season 1 will end after its initial 13-episode order, our sister site Deadline reports.

But don’t go shouting the C-word just yet; Constantine is not cancelled. NBC still has the option of renewing the supernatural series for a second season.

Constantine premiered in October to 4.3 million total viewers and a 1.4 demo rating — well below the ill-fated Dracula’s year-prior debut numbers — and at last tally did 3.5 mil/1.1, down some 20 percent from its launch.
