The CW has cancelled DC Legends of Tomorrow. According to a report from Deadline, the spin-off will not be returning despite experiencing success on the network. After making its debut in 2016, the spin-off has not received a series order beyond Season 7, leaving many unanswered questions posed by the seventh season finale. As reported by Flickluster, the CW had further dropped Batwoman after three seasons.
While Arrow, the flagship series for everything that came after, concluded in 2020 with its eighth season, it’s likely the cast from Legends will re-emerge across neighbouring shows to continue the story. Executive producer Keto Shimizu described the end of the series as an “incredible run”, while admitting that they were “heartbroken, but also immensely grateful for the amazing work our cast, crew, and writers have contributed to the little show that could.”
Well, folks. It’s been an incredible run. However, the CW has let us know that there will be no season 8 of #LegendsOfTomorrow. We are heartbroken, but also immensely grateful for the amazing work our cast, crew, and writers have contributed to the little show that could.

Presently, The Flash and Superman & Lois are the only two shows within the Arrowverse to remain on the air. Legends of Tomorrow joins Supergirl, Arrow, and Black Lightning. The Flash continues to go strong as they enter their eighth season, while Supergirl’s spin-off, Superman & Lois, was recently renewed for a third season by the CW.
Greg Berlanti developed DC Legends of Tomorrow alongside Andrew Kreisberg and Phil Klemmer. The series stars Arthur Darvill as Rip Hunter, a rogue time traveller and former Time Master who assembles a team of superheroes and supervillains to prevent Vandal Savage from conquering the Earth more than a hundred years in the future.
The team includes Caity Lotz (Sara Lance/White Canary), Franz Drameh (Firestorm), Victor Garber (Dr. Martin Stein), Brandon Routh (Ray Palmer/the Atom), Dominic Purcell (Mick Rory/Heat Wave), Wentworth Miller (Leonard Snart/Captain Cold), and Carter Hall (Falk Hentschel/Khufu).
All 102 episodes across seven seasons of DC Legends of Tomorrow are currently available to stream on Now TV.
