The CW Announces Legends of Tomorrow is Ending After 7 Seasons
The CW has announced that Legends of Tomorrow will be ending after 7 seasons. The network’s series is one of the few Arrowverse series left standing in the long run of DC property series that started with Stephen Amell’s Arrow. Co-showrunner Keto Shimizu announced on Twitter that The CW superhero series had been brought to an abrupt end.
Shimizu’s post read:
“We are heartbroken, but also immensely grateful for the amazing work our cast, crew, and writers have contributed to the little show that could.”
The series already premiered its season 7 finale in March and in the seven years at the network, it brought 110 episodes of the DC universe to fans. It’s something of note that the series among other DCproperties at The CW have seen themselves canceled after the Discovery and Warner Bros. merger. Warner Bros. Discovery had also noted that they were considering an overhaul of DC. The overhaul could play a role in the cancellation of the series, whether it be a consideration of a cinematic universe or starting from scratch, that remains to be seen.
Batwoman has already seen itself axed after three seasons as well, with Stargirl and Naomi at considerable risk of meeting the same cancellation. For the time being, it seems as though Superman & Lois and The Flash are not at risk of being canceled. With these shows on the cusp of cancellation, let’s hope they are given the opportunity at a proper ending as fans of Legends of Tomorrow were left with questions unanswered at the cliffhanger season 7 finale.
Legends of Tomorrow had an ensemble cast that included Victor Garber as Martin Stein, Brandon Routh as Ray Palmer, Arthur Darvill as Rip Hunter, Caity Lotz as Sara Lance, Franz Drameh as Jefferson “Jax” Jackson, Ciara Renée as Kendra Saunders, Falk Hentschel as Carter Hall, Dominic Purcell as Mick Rory, Wentworth Miller as Leonard Snart, Matt Letscher as Eobard Thawne, Nick Zano as Nate Heywood, Tala Ashe as Zari Tomaz, Keiynan Lonsdale as Wally West, Matt Ryan as John Constantine, Shayan Sobhian as Behrad Tarazi, and Lisseth Chavez as Esperanza “Spooner” Cruz, plus many more.
