Discover what DC’S LEGENDS OF TOMORROW will be up to next!
DC’s Legends of Tomorrow were brought together with a very specific purpose: To bring down time-traveling tyrant Vandal Savage. But with their enemy defeated, what will keep them together for Season 2?
According to Executive Producer Marc Guggenheim, the new mission for the team is a direct result of the Season 1 finale in which they destroyed Oculus and the Time Council, leaving the universe without Time Lords.
“In many ways, the season finale of season 1 set up the new mission statement for season 2,” Guggenheim told Entertainment Weekly. “Like Rip says at the end of the season finale, there basically are no more Time Masters. We basically have to be the Time Masters.”
For a group that runs off such high emotion, particularly following the loss of Hawkman, Hawkgirl, and Captain Cold, the objectivity needed to balance out time in the best interest of the universe as a whole may be a tough task. Not to mention they’ll have new enemies knocking at their door now that Vandal Savage is out of the picture.
The new season will also bring on a younger version of Vixen (Maisie Richardson-Sellers) and Justice Society of America member Citizen Steel (Nick Zano.)
DC’s Legends of Tomorrow Season 2 is set to premiere on Thursday, October 13, 2016.
