DC’s Legends of Tomorrow Season 3 synopsis released


The CW has released the synopsis for the third season of DC’s Legends of Tomorrow.

More from TV

DC’s Legends of Tomorrow had one heck of a time (pun intended) in Season 3. They went up against the Legion of Doom, headed by evil speedster Reverse-Flash, to retrieve the Spear of Destiny. As if the task wasn’t daunting enough, their captain—Rip Hunter—was lost in time, and also lost his memories.

In the end, the team prevailed and time and reality were preserved. Hey, after all, they’re named “Legends.” Why else would they be called that? But, then again, they’re also not perfect—and that’s why we love them. To accomplish all the daunting tasks in Season 2, the team had to find some cheats, and one of those little missteps will come back to haunt them in Season 3.

The CW has released the exciting third season synopsis for DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, and it picks up right after Season 3’s finale episode—yeah, that dinosaur scene and them discovering that they “broke time.”

"After the defeat of Eobard Thawne and his equally nefarious Legion of Doom, the Legends face a new threat created by their actions at the end of last season. In revisiting a moment in time that they had already participated in, they have essentially fractured the timeline and created anachronisms – a scattering of people, animals, and objects all across time! Our team must find a way to return all the anachronisms to their original timelines before the time stream falls apart. But before our Legends can jump back into action, Rip Hunter (Arthur Darvill) and his newly established Time Bureau call their methods into question. With the Time Bureau effectively the new sheriffs in town, the Legends disband – until Mick Rory (Dominic Purcell) discovers one of them in the middle of his well-deserved vacation in Aruba. Seeing this as an opportunity to continue their time travelling heroics, Sara (Caity Lotz) wastes no time in getting the Legends back together. We reunite with billionaire inventor Ray Palmer (Brandon Routh), the unconventional historian-turned-superhero Nick Heywood (Nick Zano), and Professor Martin Stein (Victor Garber) and Jefferson “Jax” Jackson (Franz Drameh), who together form the meta-human Firestorm.Once reunited, the Legends will challenge the Time Bureau’s authority over the timeline and insist that however messy their methods may be, some problems are beyond the Bureau’s capabilities. Some problems can only be fixed by Legends.Based on the characters from DC, DC’S LEGENDS OF TOMORROW is from Bonanza Productions Inc. in association with Berlanti Productions and Warner Bros. Television, with executive producers Greg Berlanti (“Arrow,” “The Flash,” “Supergirl”), Marc Guggenheim (“Arrow,” “Trollhunters,” “Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters”), Andrew Kreisberg (“Arrow,” “The Flash,” “Eli Stone,” “Warehouse 13”), Phil Klemmer (“The Tomorrow People,” “Chuck”) and Sarah Schechter (“Arrow,” “The Flash”)."

As detailed as the synopsis is, it  brings up even more questions. There’s no mention of Amaya Jiwe / Vixen (played by Maisie Richardson-Sellers). Did she still decide to go back to her time? Rip Hunter’s Time Bureau seems to be taking on a more adversarial role against the Legends. Will the Time Bureau be the “villains” of Season 3? And the synopsis sounds as if the format of the show will be more of a procedural—anachronism of the week maybe?

As of this report, there was no announcement of when the first episode of the new season will air.
