The fifth season of Legends of Tomorrow isn’t coming for awhile as it’ll start off 2020 with the Crisis on Infinite Earths event. We learned previously that it’ll be the last season Brandon Routh and Courtney Ford, married in real life for quite a few years, as they’ll be departing the series this season in their roles of Ray Palmer (who started on Arrow) and Nora Darhk. The creative side has found that this is a natural end to their storyline as regulars but they intend to leave the door open for future appearances of both characters not just in this series but the Arrowverse in general.
With that in mind, the first trailer has arrived for the fifth season that kicks off on January 21st, 2020 and it showcases a lot of things going on, but not much in the way of plot. Coming as a post-Crisis series, it could definitely find itself in a unique and interesting position.
The series airs on The CW with streaming the day after through their site and app.
The main cast includes Brandon Routh as Ray Palmer / Atom, Caity Lotz as Sara Lance / White Canary, Maisie Richardson-Sellers as Charlie, Tala Ashe as Zari Tomaz, Jes Macallan as Ava Sharpe, Courtney Ford as Nora Darhk, Amy Louise Pemberton as Gideon, Ramona Young as Mona Wu, Nick Zano as Nate Heywood / Steel, Dominic Purcell as Mick Rory / Heat Wave, and Matt Ryan as John Constantine.
Season Concept: After killing the demon Mallus, the Legends were ready to relax until John Constantine informed them that, in solving one problem, they created a much larger one. When the Legends let time crumble to release and defeat Mallus, the barrier between worlds softened. History is now infected with “Fugitives” – magical creatures from myths and fairy tales. Having been expelled throughout time by people like Constantine, they are now returning to the real world in droves and making a mess of things.
