There’s no need to worry about the Waverider crew being cancelled this time around. The CW gave fans a late holiday gift and renewed DC’s Legends of Tomorrow for a sixth season, prior to the fifth season’s debut. Will that be the end? Stay tuned.
Airing on The CW television network, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow stars Caity Lotz, Brandon Routh, Dominic Purcell, Matt Ryan, Nick Zano, Maisie Richardson-Sellers, Tala Ashe, Jes Macallan and Olivia Swann. In the fifth season, the Legends have become famous and invite a documentary crew onboard the Waverider to film them as they investigate a strange new blip in the Timeline. The Legends discover that their new problems might be tougher to fix than they thought.
