With the upcoming “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow” having just a 15-episode order and a mid-season debut, it’s not difficult for fans to imagine that The CW sees this jaunt as a one-and-done event, but that’s not the case.
Victor Garber, who plays half of the hero Firestorm Martin Stein, says that if it works, The CW will want to see it as an ongoing television series.
“They [The CW] aren’t going to introduce a limited series,” Garber tells The Hollywood Reporter. “This isn’t HBO. They want the Full Monty.”
Before he appears in the spin-off series though, Garber will once again return to “The Flash” for the season two premiere.
“Robbie and I will be joined on the first episode of the [next] season of The Flash,” he says. “And then we’ll see what happens.”
“DC’s Legends of Tomorrow” also stars Brandon Routh (“Arrow,” Superman Returns), Arthur Darvill (“Doctor Who”), Caity Lotz (“Arrow”), Ciarra Renee (“Pippin”), and Franz Drameh (Edge of Tomorrow), with Dominic Purcell (“The Flash,” “Prison Break”) and Wentworth Miller (“The Flash,” “Prison Break”).
When heroes alone are not enough… the world needs legends. Having seen the future, one he will desperately try to prevent from happening, time-traveling rogue Rip Hunter is tasked with assembling a disparate group of both heroes and villains to confront an unstoppable threat – one in which not only is the planet at stake, but all of time itself. Can this ragtag team defeat an immortal threat unlike anything they have ever known?
Based on the characters from DC Comics, the new series hails from Bonanza Productions Inc. in association with Berlanti Productions and Warner Bros. Television. Greg Berlanti (“The Flash,” “Supergirl,” “Arrow”) serves as executive producer alongside Marc Guggenheim (Eli Stone, Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters), Andrew Kreisberg (“The Flash,” “Warehouse 13″) and Sarah Schechter (“The Flash,” Pan).
