Legends Of Tomorrow Season 4 Synopsis Reaffirms The Threat Of Mythical Creatures
Legends of Tomorrow may have ended its season earlier than much of its DC TV brethren, but it remains in the hearts and minds of devoted viewers everywhere. After posting what I personally thought to be its finest outing to date, the network seems to have enough faith in the time traveling superhero show to afford it the 8pm on Monday night slot beginning this fall, thus pairing it with the relocated Arrow. To be honest, this could end up being my favorite evening of television.
So, while we may not learn much about what the future holds until San Diego Comic-Con this July – which, as it so happens, is around the time shooting resumes on various Arrowverse series – we’re pleased that some information is already trickling in.
As you may have heard, Mallus was only the tip of the iceberg, for the Waverider crew will have to contend with many more supernatural beings going forward. The following synopsis does somewhat reiterate what happened upon the conclusion of April’s finale, sure, but also offers teasers regarding what else is on the way:
After defeating the demon Mallus by cuddling him to death with a giant stuffed animal named Beebo, the Legends are ready to ease off the gas. Sara (Caity Lotz) and her team join Ava Sharpe (Jes Macallan) and the Time Bureau to help clean up the last few remaining anachronisms. The job seems straightforward enough until Constantine (Matt Ryan) arrives to inform them that, in solving one major problem, they have created another, much larger one.
When the Legends let time crumble in order to release and defeat Mallus, the barrier between worlds softened. History is now infected with “Fugitives” – magical creatures from myths, fairytales, and legends. Having been expelled throughout time by people like Constantine, these Fugitives are now returning to our world in droves and making a real mess of things. As the Time Bureau is distrustful of and ill-equipped to deal with magic, the Legends must team up with everyone’s favorite demonologist to set history back on track.
As for the remainder of the description, it serves as somewhat of a roll call, but be aware that one of the heroes listed off may one day betray their comrades:
Sara and Constantine are joined by compassionate inventor Ray Palmer (Brandon Routh), hotheaded ex-con Mick Rory (Dominic Purcell), rebellious totem-bearer Zari (Tala Ashe), and heartbroken historian-turned-superhero Nate (Nick Zano) as they set out to save the world – and their legacy. It’s the familiar fun of the Legends time-travelling across historical events and encountering famous figures with an added shot of magical craziness! Based on the characters from DC, DC’S LEGENDS OF TOMORROW is from Bonanza Productions Inc. in association with Berlanti Productions and Warner Bros. Television, with executive producers Greg Berlanti (“Arrow,” “The Flash,” “Supergirl”), Phil Klemmer (“The Tomorrow People,” “Chuck”) and Sarah Schechter (“Arrow,” “The Flash”).
Legends of Tomorrow returns to The CW with new episodes this October. Once a concrete premiere date is given, we’ll be sure to have it for you.
