The Legends of Tomorrow Will Return for Flash’s Closing Season
Reward Beebo, my pals. Whereas lots of acquainted faces are returning for The Flash’s ninth season, it gained’t simply be the family and friends members of the Iris West clan. Showrunner Eric Wallace has revealed that the fan-favorite Legends of Tomorrow solid will make an look, nearly actually for the ultimate time.
Whereas that is fantastic information, it’s considerably bittersweet. Wallace stated that he had hoped to spend two episodes of The Flash wrapping up Legends’ storyline—for those who’ll recall, the present ended with everybody caught in 1916 and arrested by the point police—however since Flash’s ninth season was restricted to 13 episodes, his authentic plan was scuttled. As he informed the Nerds of Shade podcast:
“[M]y authentic idea was to have not less than one—if not a two-parter—that wrapped up Legends of Tomorrow. And you understand, there might be slightly crossover we get them again, we get them out of time jail, all these good issues, Booster Gold, and so forth, and so forth. Once we came upon we solely have 13 episodes, that was not doable. We barely have sufficient time to wrap up issues with Barry and Iris’ upcoming household…”
So we do not know how the Legends will make their look, or why, or what state they’ll be in (I’m assuming Barry gained’t be losing time rescuing them from time jail, nonetheless). However it doesn’t matter what, it’ll be nice to see them once more one final time. When The Flash ends later this yr, so will the Arrowverse. I’m positive we’ll be getting one thing approaching a correct send-off for these knuckleknobs, irrespective of how abbreviated it might be.
