Even though the ratings for DC’s Legends of Tomorrow TV show continued to fall last year, and it slipped out of the top three, it was still ranked in the top half of scripted series on The CW. Now that it’s back for a fourth season, can it make legendary comeback in the ratings, or will it continue its decline? Will DC’s Legends of Tomorrow be cancelled or renewed for season five? Stay tuned. **Status update below.
A DC Comics inspired CW action-adventure series, Legends of Tomorrow stars Brandon Routh, Caity Lotz, Dominic Purcell, Maisie Richardson-Sellers, Nick Zano, Tala Ashe, Ramona Young, Tom Wilson, Matt Ryan, Jes Macallan, and Courtney Ford. In the fourth season, Constantine (Ryan) arrives to explain to the Legends that “Fugitives” — magical creatures from myths, fairy tales, and legends — have infected history, as a consequence of killing of Mallus.
