Deadline reports that Wentworth Miller will no longer be a series regular on DC’s Legends of Tomorrow starting with the show’s second season, but he will instead fluctuate between all of The CW DC shows as Leonard Snart, aka Captain Cold.
“We always knew that he wouldn’t be a permanent member of The Waverider,” executive producer Greg Berlanti said. “We also knew we loved him on the show and all the shows, Flash as well… (He) won’t be part of the team of Legends on board of The Waverider next year, but he will have a very active role on the show.”
The new deal with Warner Bros. TV is the first for an actor to play one character across multiple shows, but may not be the last.
“In success we hope to continue with other characters finding their way across all the shows,” Berlanti says.
Further teasing the second season of DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, Berlanti said:
“There is an anthology element to Legends… Every year for this show people should expect a new adventure. There will be new teammates, a new big bad. Mixing and matching things is part of the fun of the show.”
