Legends of Tomorrow is one of the longest-running shows on CW. It was part of the Arrowverse, and it has been running around for seven seasons. All it needed was one Final Season to wrap things up.
The CW is not known for canceling shows. They usually make international deals with Netflix and syndicate their shows to the global market. That strategy helped many of their shows to have completions. After the acquisition by Discovery and Time Warner, things changed. The new management decided to clean house and get rid of shows with low ratings like Batwoman. I rarely had anxiety about cancellations of shows with the CW, but now things have changed.
Legends of Tomorrow deserves to have a closure of any form, even if it’s just a crossover episode on Flash.
The drop in ratings may have something to do with the oversaturation of Superhero shows, but Legends is more of a time-traveling adventure. A lot of the fan-favorite characters had left the show throughout the Seasons, which also contributed to the decline.
Many of the original casts had left, but Caity Lotz had been playing Sarah Lance for a decade since Arrow. She is one of the remaining original pillars of the Arrowverse, and She deserves better than this. The cast and characters of this show have been a revolving door, but Caity has always been there.
HBOMAX is the final chance of the show to keep going because DC Comics is Part of Warner Media. HBOMAX had saved shows before, Warrior is one of the shows they picked up after the closure of Cinemax. On the other hand, It didn’t save Y:The Last Man which was a DC comics property. The Future might be bleak but fans will try to fight for it to have its final hurrah.
