'Constantine': Lucy Griffiths to leave 'Hellblazer'-based comics series
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Griffiths' exit comes after the "Constantine" producers decided to take the "Hellblazer" adaptation in a different direction.
Griffiths' character of Liv -- who plays a central role in the pilot episode -- is a powerful psychic who allies with John Constantine (Matt Ryan) when a demon comes after her. Liv will now be written out of the show, later to be replaced by Zed, a female character from the comics who works closely with Constantine on matters of the occult.
The "Constantine" series premiere will air Friday, Oct. 24 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on NBC.
