CW Arrow/Flash Spinoff Legends of Tomorrow Gets Series Order, As If You Had a Doubt
Just the other day we told you The CW had picked up iZombie for a second season, today we can also tell you they’ve renewed both Arrow and The Flash for their next seasons plus the next spinoff is a go! And we’ve finally got a name and official synopsis!
When heroes alone are not enough… the world needs legends. Having seen the future, one he will desperately try to prevent from happening, time-traveling rogue Rip Hunter is tasked with assembling a disparate group of both heroes and villains to confront an unstoppable threat – one in which not only is the planet at stake, but all of time itself. Can this ragtag team defeat an immortal threat unlike anything they have ever known?
DC’S LEGENDS OF TOMORROW stars Victor Garber (“The Flash,” “Alias”); Brandon Routh (“Arrow,” “Superman Returns”); Arthur Darvill (“Doctor Who”); Caity Lotz (“Arrow”); Ciara Renee (“Pippin”); Franz Drameh (“Edge of Tomorrow”); with Dominic Purcell (“The Flash,” “Prison Break”); and Wentworth Miller (“The Flash,” “Prison Break”).
Interestingly enough, The Hollywood Reporter says “the spinoff was ordered sight unseen — and has yet to film a pilot” but that we may be getting a peek at them via a special trailer soon. While we already knew time travel might play a role when we found out Doctor Who’s Darvill joined the cast as Rip, this synopsis makes me think we might get into some really interesting future territory.
No, they’re still not revealing who Caity Lotz is playing (rumors say White Canary) but our new Hawkgirl, Ciara Renée, revealed on Twitter we’d be seeing her sooner than we thought!
ALSO! Be sure to catch me and some of my castmates on the season finale of @CW_TheFlash ⚡️
