Tomorrow is now. The CW has renewed DC’s Legends of Tomorrow TV show for a fourth season. A spin-off of Arrow and The Flash, the series features additional characters originating from the DC Comics universe.
A CW superhero drama, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow stars Brandon Routh, Caity Lotz, Arthur Darvill, Amy Pemberton, Dominic Purcell, Wentworth Miller, Maisie Richardson-Sellers, and Nick Zano. Thanks to fracturing the timeline, last year, in season three the Legends must restore all the anachronisms to their rightful timelines, before the time stream falls apart. However, Rip Hunter (Darvill) and the Time Bureau prompt them to separate, until Sara (Lotz) gets the band back together.
