Last season, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow was The CW‘s most-anticipated new show. The ratings started out okay but the series lost nearly half of its live viewers by the end of season one. Will fans of the network’s superhero shows give it a second chance in season two? Will it be cancelled or renewed for a third season? Stay tuned.
On DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, the threat of immortal Vandal Savage has passed but there are plenty of new threats to the timeline which could cause devastating changes to history. The Legends clash with foes both past and present, to save the world from a mysterious new threat. Cast members include Victor Garber, Brandon Routh, Arthur Darvill, Wentworth Miller, Dominic Purcell, Caity Lotz, Franz Drameh, Nick Zano, and Maisie Richardson-Sellers.
