Legends of Tomorrow Changes Revealed During [email protected] Panel

The CW’s Legends of Tomorrow crew are undergoing some changes in the upcoming season, as detailed during their SDCC at Home panel.

When times were a tad more normal, I’d usually be sitting in Ballroom 20 for almost the entire day as they went through all the CW’s DCTV panels. However, things are no longer “normal”, I have to sit at home to watch TV show panels, and the only CW series that even made a showing at [email protected] was, Legends of Tomorrow!

Coming together today to discuss the latest developments on the fan-favorite show were: Nick Zano, Tala Ashe, Jes Macallan, Olivia Swann, Adam Tsekhman, Shayan Sobhian, Lisseth Chavez and Matt Ryan — plus executive producers/co-showrunners Keto Shimizu and Phil Klemmer.

Series star Caity Lotz introduced the panel with a sneak peek at a trailer which featured an exclusive look at the remainder of the show’s sixth season — think bowling, board games, aliens, weddings, magic mushrooms, and a whole lot of dark drama involving John Constantine.

As we learn Amy Louise Pemberton will be joining the cast as a series regular as she plays a flesh and blood version of Gideon, the Waveriders AI. Unfortunately as one person joins one person is finally leaving teh show well kind of. Phil Klemmer revealed that “ John Constantine’s arc on the show is coming to an end in season six, Matt Ryan’s journey with the Legends is not over.” In season seven, Ryan will be back as a series regular, and he will play a new original role: Dr. Gwyn Davies, an eccentric scientist from the early 20th century who might be the team’s only hope next season.

Matt Ryan said: “As everyone who loves him knows, in the end, John Constantine will walk his path alone. The time has come for John to part ways with the Legends, and for me to part ways with John. I’m really excited to be creating this new role on the show and having some fun with it — discovering how this new character fits in and causes some trouble for the Legends.”

Lastly, Legends fans will now have the opportunity to immerse themselves even further into the series’ musical craziness with a 21-track “Mixtape” of the show’s most memorable musical moments. Whether it’s the David Bowie–inspired “Space Girl” from the current season, or Brandon Routh’s “Mr. Parker’s Cul-De-Sac” from season five, or any of the cast performances of “Puppets of Tomorrow,” “I Surrender,” or “Sweet Baby James,” fans can find their favorites on the “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow: The Mixtape (Songs from the Original Television Soundtrack).” Available on Spotify, iTunes, YouTube, Amazon, and more, the album will be released on August 20, 2021.
