I have not seen Constantine: City of Demons yet but I heard contradictory reports that it's a part of Arrowverse or DC Animated Movie Universe.

In both canons Matt Ryan plays the part of Constantine. In Arrowverse he plays the role and in DC Animated Movie Universe he voices the character in Justice League Dark.

So is there any official final word on it? Which canon is it from?

  • According to J. M. DeMatteis, the series is not a continuation of Constantine, but is in the same universe as the 2017 film Justice League Dark. He added that "time will tell" whether the show is part of the Arrowverse - Wikipedia

  • @Paulie_D But arrowverse didn't mentioned anything about a earth with so many mainstream heroes yet and I am sure they can't even make live action version of DCAMU either anytime soon

    So the comment above seems likely the final word...until the Arrowverse decides otherwise.

Show writer J.M. DeMatteis confirmed that Constantine: City of Demons is set in the same canon universe as the Justice League Dark movie.

Not a continuation of the series. It IS in the same universe as the JL DARK movie and I guess time will tell if it's in the Arrowverse!

Per Twitter - 2018

Since JL Dark received sequels, it follows that this continuity includes Justice League Dark: Apokolips War and Constantine: The House of Mystery but doesn't appear to be directly connected to the Arrowverse or other DC Animated films and shows.

That all being said, CW head Mark Pedowitz muddied the water somewhat by suggesting that all of the DCAMU and animated shows (including City of Demons) are somewhat connected to each other.

"They're all somewhat connected now to the Arrowverse for our purposes. We look at CW Seed as an extension," he said. "It's great to have Constantine. It's a great message to everybody that 'come to CW Seed and don't be bored.'"

Berlanti and David Goyer (who executive produced the live-action series) have just started working on the Constantine series. Pedowitz said there haven't been discussions of which live action supporting characters may or may not be back for the new show, or how this version of Constantine will connect back to the live action storylines he's been a part of.
