‘Legends’ Cast and Showrunner Address Show’s Cancellation

With the CW‘s announcement that DC’s Legends of Tomorrow would not be returning for season eight, the show’s cast and showrunner shared their thoughts and feeling on social media. Star Caity Lotz stated that’s she’s lucky to have been able to play Sara Lanse for so long, while showrunner Keto Shimizu acknowledged that the  season 7 cliffhanger wasn’t. the CW’s fault, but his, stating, “I played chicken with the pickup, and lost.”

The cancellation comes off the heals of Batwoman being cancelled after three seasons. Ironically, Legends of Tomorrow‘s average rating in the key demo among adults 18-49 and average viewership compared to the rest of the CW’s shows, it ranked above Nancy Drew and Riverdale, which were both renewed, meaning it was likely a matter of cost.With the losses of Legends, Batwoman, Arrow, Supergirl and Black Lightening, the only remaining Arrowverse shows are the highly rated and critically acclaimed Superman & Lois and The Flash, which was renewed for its ninth and likely final season.

Fans of Legends can at least look forward to seeing the characters in comic form. DC’s, Earth-Prime is a three-month, six-issue event with the first five issues spotlighting an individual Arrowverse  series, including Legends of Tomorrow. The final issue will be a full-on Arrowverse crossover featuring  long gone characters like Hawkman and Heatwave.
