TV show summary and cast
DC’s Legends of Tomorrow is the newest addition to the original scripted programming lineup on The CW channel. The debut season of the show is currently airing in the United States. The new action and sci-fi drama series is yet another new show this year in the coveted superhero genre, that already includes the likes of Daredevil and Jessica Jones on Netflix, Supergirl on CBS. It is also a direct spin-off of the two highly-rated and critically praised CW’s series The Flash and Arrow. The new action and adventure series was developed and co-penned by Greg Berlanti, Andrew Kreisberg, Marc Guggenheim who also all serve as executive producers on the show together with Chris Fedak and Phil Klemmer. Creative collaboration between Bonanza Productions, DC Entertainment and Warner Bros. Television, Legends of Tomorrow debuted in the US on January 21, 2016.
Ratings, reviews and possible renewal
Season 1 of Legends of Tomorrow came out in the US on The CW network on Thursday, January 21, 2016 at 8pm ET/PT and at the moment it is expected to include sixteen one-hour episodes. The network has already been very successful in the rating department with two of its other superhero series, Arrow and The Flash, and the newest creation did not disappoint. The premiere episode attracted almost 3.3 million viewers. Combined with the same night premiere of The 100, the network boasted its highest-rated total Thursday broadcast in over three years. We are very curious to see how the ratings change as the series develops, because the first reviews have been rather mixed. Many viewers found the new show to be too predictable and corny. While there is a lot of praise for the production quality, the soundtrack and the plot, there has been criticism of the cinematography and acting.
