With time-hop­ping bad guy Van­dal Sav­age now out of ac­tion, the Leg­ends of To­mor­row have new is­sues on their to-do lists – like vin­tage su­per­hero out­fit the Jus­tice So­ci­ety of Amer­ica, and the DC TV uni­verse in­car­na­tion of bad-guy team-up the Le­gion of Doom. “It’s a very dif­fer­ent kind of dy­namic than we had with Van­dal, where it was this one guy ex­ist­ing through­out time,” ex­ec­u­tive pro­ducer Marc Guggen­heim tells Red Alert. “It frees us up in a re­ally ter­rific way. This show lives not in the ‘light’ the way Flash does, but in the fun and the hu­mour of this crazy group of peo­ple. It’s sort of like ‘Guardians Of The Galaxy: The TV Show’ – with time travel.”

With Went­worth Miller’s Cap­tain Cold hav­ing died and sub­se­quently signed up with the afore­men­tioned Le­gion (along­side Mal­colm Mer­lyn, Damien Darkh and Re­verse-Flash), new seats have opened up on the Waverider.

“Nick Zano plays Nathan Hey­wood,” ex­plains Guggen­heim. “He’s a his­to­rian, so some­one re­ally per­fect for a time-travel show, be­cause he knows all the ins and outs of his­tory – even things that a lot of his­to­ri­ans don’t know. We sort of say he’s like a time de­tec­tive. His job is to make de­duc­tions and fig­ure things out about time that other peo­ple haven’t re­alised.

“Maisie Richard­son-Sell­ers plays Amaya, the great-grand­mother of Vixen from Ar­row,” he adds. “She’s a for­mer mem­ber of the Jus­tice So­ci­ety of Amer­ica, so she’s com­ing off a team that does ev­ery­thing right, and with a 1940s sen­si­bil­ity. So she looks at Sara like, ‘Wow, you’re open and out there as a bi­sex­ual?’ She looks at Mick Rory and goes, ‘What’s an ar­son­ist do­ing on this team of su­per­heroes? That’s not right!’”

Leg­ends Of To­mor­row re­turns to US screens on 13 Oc­to­ber. It will air on Sky 1 in the UK.

Sara’s out­fit is never go­ing to sur­vive all that mud.
