Legends Of Tomorrow Season 8 Release Date: is it Officially Cancelled! Know Here!

Why Legends of Tomorrow was canceled

Legends of Tomorrow is unlike any other show on TV. What started out as a ragtag group of C-list heroes who kept screwing up became one of the most endearing and unique takes on DC comics and superheroes in general.

Even though it didn’t get the best ratings, Legends of Tomorrow did pretty well for The CW. It had more viewers than Riverdale and about the same number as Kung Fu. Even though Legends has been on for a long time, it was one of the few shows whose ratings went up in the last few years. Still, neither of those other shows was canceled, while Legends was.

So what’s up? Well, I think it’s safe to say that the Arrowverse has been in trouble for a while now because people aren’t as interested in it as they used to be. After Arrow, Supergirl, and Black Lightning ended, other spin-offs were canceled before they even started, leaving some big holes in The CW’s lineup of superhero shows.

And now, with the end of both Batwoman and Legends of Tomorrow, there are only four Arrowverse-style shows left: The Flash, Naomi, Stargirl, and Superman & Lois.

Let’s face it: The Flash’s ninth season is almost certainly going to be it’s last. So, there are only three more superhero shows on the network, and each one is pretty different from the others in the Arrowverse. When you add in the fact that Naomi hasn’t been picked up yet, it looks like the Arrowverse as we know it will change soon.

Even though no official reason has been given for the cancellation of Legends, it seems likely that the sale of The CW was a major factor. Nexstar, a media company, is in talks to buy the most important part of the network.

This, along with the changes in Warner Bros.’s top management since Discovery bought the company, means that expensive superhero shows like Legends of Tomorrow may have been cut because of a desire to save money in these uncertain times.

When Beebo, a stuffed animal that has been turned into a Viking god, asks for help, you know it’s important. And that’s exactly what the show’s unofficial mascot did when it looked like the show’s future might be in danger.

But, in the end, not even this cute plea to #RenewLegendsOfTomorrow helped. Just a few weeks after The CW renewed shows like The Flash and Riverdale, it was confirmed that Legends of Tomorrow wouldn’t be joining them for even one last season.

As soon as the Waverider was taken out of service for good, the show’s creator, Keto Shimizu, took to Twitter to say:

“We are very sad, but we are also very thankful for how well our cast, crew, and writers worked on the little show that could. Thank you to our fans. Your love and passion for our strange band of misfits have made every break, script, daily, cut, and mix worth all the hard work. We see you, we love you, and you’ll always have a spot on the Waverider.”

Soon, both the actors and the people who worked behind the scenes felt the same way. The Legends of Tomorrow writer’s room said that making the show was “the journey of a lifetime for all of us,” and series lead Caity Lotz, who has been with the show since the beginning, posted an emotional thank you on her Instagram Stories:

“I’m upset. I’m sad, too. I’m really going to miss it. I’m going to miss our wonderful cast and crew, but I also know how lucky I have been to play Sara Lance for so long. Working on Legends has been an amazing adventure, and I am so grateful to it and to all of you. So, thanks to everyone who watches Legends of Tomorrow. We love you all so much, and this has been a lot of fun.”

The following post by actor Tala Ashe is one of the most touching things that people who worked on Legends of Tomorrow have said:

“I got to play a superhero for a short time, and I was the first Muslim-American one to do so in real life! There are so many different times, clothes, stories, and laughs. God, a lot of laughs. This show changed my life, and the friends I made will always be important to me. I was sad that I couldn’t say goodbye properly to my Legends family, but I’m thankful for the time we had together. Good to be reminded that nothing is promised to us.”

And we’re “gutted” too because Legends of Tomorrow deserved a proper send-off, not a surprise announcement weeks after season seven ended. But what happened? Did someone mess with the timestream, or is there a more ordinary explanation for why the show had to end?
