They had it scheduled for twenty-two episodes with a thirteen episode budget to start. NBC declined the last nine though not outright cancelling the show. Really the best chance will be to move it to SYFY where it could have a long run. I think Reverend Meteor has one thing pegged in that at this time it doesn't offer much that hasn't been used in the last decade. The irony being Constantine has probably been a huge influence on the genre. About the Spectre thing I don't want to spoil anything in case the series does get a go for another year. The source material will have a say in that department.
Isn't the series also supposed to be a tie into the dark JLA movie to be coming out?
Thaty would be having matt Ryan play the C man, and have beings sucha s spectre and phantom stranger show up also in it>
