Legends of Tomorrow may be recognized by most today as the comedic DC time-traveling Arrowverse show. Still, it was initially a much more serious show, especially within its first two seasons. Between the villains and the general plot of each season being as serious as possible, the events in between for the Legends of Tomorrow episodes after Season 3 were much more comedic overall. Below, we’ve detailed Legends of Tomorrow Season 5, the seasons before it, and other information regarding the history of The CW Arroverse show that was canceled earlier this year.
Legends of Tomorrow
Legends of Tomorrow started in 2016 as another Arrowverse show to add more interdimensional elements and expand on the universe in a new aspect. The show started as the fourth Arrowverse show, after Arrow, The Flash, and Supergirl, and lasted for a total of seven seasons, before its cancelation but before it was officially canceled, Legends of Tomorrow had a familiar and new set of rotating characters exploring different periods of time to stop events from creating additional havoc on the timeline.
Legends of Tomorrow Pre-Season 5
Legends of Tomorrow has had various episode numbers per season, such as Legends of Tomorrow Season 5, which had a total of fifteen episodes, including the annual crossover episode, but without the crossover episode had the second to least amount of episodes within it compared to other seasons. Still, each season’s storyline has told a new story that was always somewhat connected to the previous season’s events, which also typically led to some sort of character changes each season. Legends of Tomorrow Season 1 featured Rip Hunter as he formed the Legends of Tomorrow team to stop Vandal Savage from rising to power in the future and killing Rip Hunter’s family. Season 1 of Legends of Tomorrow ended with the version of Leonard Snart from The Flash sacrificing himself to destroy the Time Masters. Following Captain Cold’s sacrifice, the Legends became aware that the Reverse-Flash was aware of the Spear of Destiny and its ability to rewrite reality, so he formed the Legion of Doom with time-displaced versions of Captain Cold, Malcolm Merlyn, and Damien Darhk to help him. Ultimately Sara defeated Reverse-Flash and the Legion of Doom, but it wasn’t long before the Legends dealt with demons and even more mythical objects. Season 3 of Legends of Tomorrow featured the demon Mallus and his attempt to rule the Earth, with the influence of Nora Darhk by his side. However, while the Legends of Tomorrow defeated that specific demon in Legends of Tomorrow Season 3, at the end of the season, Constantine appeared and informed them that several other demons and mythical beings were loose on Earth. With Constantine’s warning at the end of season 3, Legends of Tomorrow Season 4 started as the occult detective joined the team with allies of his own and helped the Legends of Tomorrow take on damn near armies of magical enemies, but more specifically, the demon Neron.
Legends of Tomorrow Season 5 Characters
Legends of Tomorrow Season 5 characters were about the same as the team that made up the Legends of Tomorrow, such as Sara Lance, Constantine, The Atom, Heatwave, Steel, and others, with, of course, new enemies. Unfortunately, Season 5 saw a more significant departure of characters than it took on, with Ray, Charlie, Nora, and Mona leaving the team at the end of the season. Legends of Tomorrow Season 5 was a build-up from the original Constantine series that only lasted 13 episodes on NBC. The season revolved around a woman haunting Constantine from his past that was recognized on the original show. The character in question for Legends of Tomorrow Season 5 was Astra Logue, who was sent to hell in a botched exorcism performed by Constantine.
Legends of Tomorrow Season 5 Detailed
Legends of Tomorrow Season 5 overall featured more personal relationships on top of the typical drama in the plot, much like the previous season, and of course, the focus on Constantine’s past starting to catch up with him. Legends of Tomorrow Season 5 had the Legends fighting off the so-called “Encores” that Astra Logue had brought to Earth from hell. Legends of Tomorrow Season 5 ended with the Legends taking care of the issues they dealt with. Ultimately, Astra was invited to live with Constantine and mentored by him, as well as join the Legends of Tomorrow. Still, it ended with a cliffhanger as aliens abducted Sara in the most classic ways, with a giant beam of light. Most interestingly, Legends of Tomorrow Season 5 started with the seasonal Arrowverse crossover as its first episode for Part 5 of “Crisis on Infinite Earths.”seven seasons
