Legends of Tomorrow canceled at The CW; season 8 not happening

Legends of Tomorrow

A mere matter of hours after Batwoman was canceled at The CW, the bad news has been handed down to Legends of Tomorrow.

In a post on Twitter, executive producer Keto Shimizu confirmed the news with the following message:

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.

Are we sad that it is ending? In a word, yes — another word? Devastating. This was one of our favorite shows for so many years. It was smart, funny, and imaginative. It also ended on a huge cliffhanger. We thought the promise of Booster Gold would be enough to save it, but that is sadly not the case.

We’d of course love for someone else to swoop in and save the show, but we can’t sit here and say that this is going to happen. Warner Bros. Discovery seems to be moving away from the Arrowverse and may be looking to reboot a lot of their properties. The only home that would make some element of sense is HBO Max — it feels like nowhere else would make sense logistically.

The real truth

Shows get canceled. It sucks. It’s never something that anyone roots for. We’re just glad that Legends of Tomorrow had a fantastic run and was funny, inspirational, and unafraid to be different. Every other show should wish to be like it.
