‘DC’s Legends of Tomorrow’ To Air Sixth Season On May 2
On May 2, the sixth season DC’s Legends of Tomorrow will premiere on the CW. Unlike the other CW Arrowverse shows, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow was able the finish its fifth season before the the production show was forced to a halt because of the COVID-19 pandemic. It will be the final Arrowverse series to premiere after the production was shut down in 2020. Both Phil Klemmer and Keto Shimizu will return as co-showrunners for the sixth season. It has also been revealed that Dominic Purcell will also continue portraying the character Mick Rory/Heatwave during the upcoming seventh season of the show after the actor revealed it in an Instagram post. This will be the shortest season of the series yet, with only 14 episodes.
The main premise of the season will revolve around the team fighting aliens who are scattered throughout history and causing damage to the main timeline. This will be the fifth “problem of the week” concept for the show, with the previous concepts consisting of time aberrations where the villain Reverse-Flash (Matt Letscher) was changing the timeline in history for his benefit, anachronisms where a historical figure was in the wrong time period, magical creatures who are hiding in time periods to be free from oppression and the resurrected souls of the worst historical figures to have ever lived like Rasputin (Michael Eklund), Genghis Khan (Terry Chen) and Marie Antoinette (Courtney Ford).
The Legends will also have to figure out a way to save their captain Sara Lance (Caity Lotz), who was abducted by the unknown race of aliens at the end of the previous season. Several characters will be affected by Sara’s absence, especially her love interest Ava Sharpe (Jes Macallan), who will struggle to confidently lead the team now that her girlfriend has been kidnapped.
