Can't wait to see NBC's upcoming superhero series Constantine? Well, the bad news is that we've still got four months to wait until it hits our screens. The good news, though? We now finally have a date to look forward to.

Constantine will debut October 24 on NBC, with the Matt Ryan-starring show therefore taking on a decent chunk of the network's early season expectations.

The show, which also stars Harold Perrineau Jr., Lucy Griffiths and Charles Halford, is one of the most eagerly anticipated debut series of this coming fall, and part of a new wave of superhero themed TV that looks set to be all-but-everpresent in the coming year. Gotham, The Flash and Agent Carter, however, are based on properties more established in the public consciousness, so in many ways it is the success or otherwise of Constantine that could be seen as most indicative of the baseline appeal of the genre.

Whether the shows combination of the superheroic with the supernatural will prove a success is sure to be one of the most interesting sub-plots of the fall - but if you can't wait, you can check out it's trailer below, along with some seriously spooky still images:
