NBC announced that it would not renew “Dracula,” the Victorian series starring Jonathan Rhys Meyers for a second season.

The news was reported by EW, the series, which had been on the bubble, aired what ended up being its series finale in late January. Meyers played a recently rescued Dracula posing as an American entrepreneur named Alexander Grayson who was deeply interested in bringing electricity to London.

Hannibal,” another bubble show was renewed, and “Constantine” which is based on the comic book series “Hellblazer” was picked up. NBC’s official description is below:

“Based on the wildly popular comic book series “Hellblazer” from DC Comics, seasoned demon hunter and master of the occult John Constantine (Matt Ryan, “Criminal Minds”) specializes in giving hell… hell. Armed with a ferocious knowledge of the dark arts and his wickedly naughty wit, he fights the good fight — or at least he did. With his soul already damned to hell, he’s decided to leave his do-gooder life behind, but when demons target Liv (Lucy Griffiths, “True Blood”), the daughter of one of Constantine’s oldest friends, he’s reluctantly thrust back into the fray – and he’ll do whatever it takes to save her.”

The network also canceled “Believe,” “Crisis, “Growing up Fisher,” “Revolution” and “Community,” which had been on the air for five seasons. A decision has yet to be made on “Parenthood.”
