A new to­mor­row

Sci-fi se­ries Leg­ends Of To­mor­row is up­ping the hero count in sea­son 2.

TV Plus (South Africa) - - SCI-FI -

The Leg­ends Of To­mor­row are go­ing back in time – that’s Al­bert Ein­stein with the grey hair! Sea­son 2 Fri­days (from 14 Oc­to­ber) Vuzu AMP (*103) 20:30

Suit up, be­cause the mot­ley crew of not-so-super-he­roes are blast­ing back as DC’s Leg­ends Of To­mor­row (2015- cur­rent) re­turns for sea­son 2. When we last checked with the time­trav­el­ling crew of the Waverider on 27 Septem­ber 2016, they’d used alien me­te­ors to kill im­mor­tal bad­die Van­dal Sav­age (Cas­par Crump) be­fore he could turn back time to 1700BC and rule the world. With Sav­age gone, what now?

A lot, as showrun­ner Phil Klem­mer re­veals: “Sea­son 2 isn’t just hit­ting the re­set but­ton, it’s mod­i­fy­ing the team’s mis­sion.” Phil adds that Martin Stein/ Firestorm (Vic­tor Gar­ber), Ray Palmer/ Atom (Bran­don Routh), Rip Hunter (Arthur Darvill), Jef­fer­son Jack­son/ Firestorm (Franz Drameh) and the rest of the team “won’t be sav­ing the world from a sin­gu­lar en­tity of evil”.

THE NEW GOOD

The iconic Jus­tice So­ci­ety Of Amer­ica are here, in­clud­ing the likes of… Rex Tyler/Hour­man (Pa­trick J Adams, Mike Ross on le­gal drama se­ries Suits, 2011- cur­rent). Court­ney Whit­more/Star­girl (Sarah Grey, Amanda in 2017’s re­boot movie Power Rangers). Nate Hey­wood/Cit­i­zen Steel (Nick Zano, Arthur in can­celled sci-fi show Mi­nor­ity Re­port, 2015).

BE­ING BAD IS FUN

And to do bat­tle with the good guys, meet the Le­gion Of Doom… Prof Eo­bard Thawne/Re­v­erseFlash (Matt Letscher, Re­verse-Flash in sci-fi show The Flash, 2014- cur­rent). Mal­colm Mer­lyn/Dark Archer (John Bar­row­man, who plays the same role in Ar­row, 2012- cur­rent). Damien Darhk (Neal McDonough, Agent Sean Cahill in le­gal drama se­ries Suits and Damien Darhk in Ar­row).

CROSS­ING OVER

Green Ar­row/Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell in Ar­row) and one or two other DC char­ac­ters will pop up, Phil says. “We’re bring­ing a writer from Ar­row and a writer from Flash to our se­ries to make the sto­ries all gel.”
