Variety reports that The CW has ordered four more episodes for sophomore series DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, bringing its total episode count for season 2 from 13 to 17. After its renewal for a second season, Legends wasn’t given the same 22/23 episode count that Supergirl, The Flash, and Arrow had, so this is a good sign for the series’ future despite being the lowest rated of the shows.
In additional DC’s Legends of Tomorrow news, the first photos from episode 2.06 have been released, which you can check out in the gallery below.
Titled “Outlaw Country,” the episode is officially described as follows:
“The Legends are still reeling from the news that their time travel-nemesis is a speedster when they are alerted to an Aberration in the Old West. When the Legends arrive they find their old friend Jonah Hex (guest star Jonathan Schaech) in trouble with his arch-nemesis, Quentin Turnbull (guest star Jeff Fahey). The team soon discovers that they need to stop Turnbull and his gang from conquering the West and branding it his own lawless territory. To Hex’s surprise, Sara is in charge and dispatches the team. Rory is ecstatic to be in the Wild West, but Sara makes Amaya work with him to keep him on task, which is easier said than done. Meanwhile, Nate, Ray and Jax try to infiltrate Turnball’s gang, but find themselves in a shootout leaving Nate’s confidence shaken.”
Cherie Nowlan directed the episode which was written by Matthew Maala & Chris Fedak. “Outlaw Country” is set to air November 17.
