DC’s Legends of Tomorrow has been canceled by The CW after seven seasons.
As reported by THR, Legends of Tomorrow follows the cancellation of DC’s Batwoman after three seasons and leaves The CW with only The Flash and Superman & Lois for its DC slate in the next year. The Flash is expected to end after its ninth season, and it will be replaced by shows like producer Greg Berlanti’s Gotham Knights.
“Well, folks. It’s been an incredible run,” co-showrunner Keto Shimizu wrote on Twitter. “However, the CW has let us know that there will be no season 8 of #LegendsOfTomorrow. 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.”
The void left by Legends of Tomorrow will be filled by some of The CW’s recent renewals, including All American, Kung Fu, Nancy Drew, Riverdale, and Walker. Those seven renewals are fewer than the 10 or more the network usually chooses to continue early.
Legends of Tomorrow recently celebrated its 100th episode and earlier this year we took a look at how Zari and Behrad became a roadmap for better representation.
