Recently, a digital billboard played at the corner of 50th and Broadway in Manhattan. With an image captioning the cast of “Legends of Tomorrow.” The caption says “we won’t go quietly,” which is a reference to a recurring line in the series between Sara Lance (Caity Lotz) and Ava (Jes Macallan). The CW declared last month that they would not pick up an 8th season of the series.

It’s a time-travel series with a revolving cast. DC’s Legends of Tomorrow altered things up this season by eliminating time travel. It’s removed from the first few episodes. The Legends started the 7th season left in 1920s Texas. Later, we came to know that it turned out as a corrupted version of Gideon. The AI that ran the team’s timeship was the Waverider. They built an automated robotic team of evil Legends which was meant to destroy the real ones. And then replacing them with more efficient versions of themselves.

Showrunner Keto Shimizu wrote on social media:

“Well, folks. It’s been an incredible run. However, the CW has let us know that there will be no season 8 of Legends of Tomorrow.”

“We are heartbroken, but also immensely grateful for the amazing work our cast, crew, and writers have contributed to the little show that could. Thank you to our fans; your love and passion for our strange band of misfits has made every break, every script, every daily, every cut, and every mix worth all the hard work. We see you, we love you, and you’ll always have a place on the Waverider.”

From the past few weeks it’s pretty surprising about the networks cancelling a shocking number of high-profile or rookie shows. Among them were several shows on The CW. Including the Arrowverse mainstays Batwoman and DC’s Legends of Tomorrow. This is the decision that led to a collection of surprising reactions. It’s all over the social media and campaigns from fans.

According to the reports, while The CW president Mark Pedowitz wanted to revive both shows for more seasons, Warner Bros. Discovery chopped the shows because they no longer wanted to pay the leases on the studio space. Which expired on May 1.

Keto Shimizu wrote on Twitter soon after the cancellation news crashed:


“The cliffhanger isn’t the CW’s fault. It’s mine.”

“I played chicken with the pickup and lost. Hopefully, the story can continue in another form. TV movie? Comic book? Radio play?”
