Two key players are leaving DC’s Legends of Tomorrow. Deadline reports Brandon Routh and Courtney Ford are departing the CW TV show during season five.
Routh plays Ray Palmer/Atom and Ford plays Nora Darhk on the DC superhero drama, which also stars Victor Garber, Caity Lotz, Franz Drameh, Arthur Darvill, Amy Pemberton, Dominic Purcell, Wentworth Miller, Maisie Richardson-Sellers, Nick Zano, Tala Ashe, and Neal McDonough.
According to Deadline, both Routh and Ford are departing DC’s Legends of Tomorrow because of a creative decision to wrap up their characters’ storylines. Of course, this doesn’t mean Ray and Nora are out of the picture entirely. Executive producer Phil Klemmer says the two may return to the CW series in the future:
Of course, when we have had main characters in the past whose journeys take them away from the Waverider, it’s never truly goodbye. We love these characters and hope to check in with them in future seasons, to see how life off the ship has transformed them for better or worse.”
