Breaking news from the Warner Bros. lot, as DC's Legends of Tomorrow has also been canceled by The CW, wrapping its run after seven seasons and 110 episodes.
Showrunner Keto Shimizu wrote, "Well, folks. It’s been an incredible run. 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."
The news comes just hours after it was reported that Batwoman would not be returning for a fourth year, but is considerably more shocking when you take into account that Legends of Tomorrow ended its seventh season with a massive cliffhanger that will presumably now remain forever unresolved.
The series starred a rotating cast of Arrowverse fan-favorites and misfits, including Caity Lotz, Dominic Purcell, Nick Zano, Brandon Routh, Tala Ashe, Jes Macallan, Maisie Richardson-Sellers, Matt Ryan, Adam Teskhman, Franz Drameh, Olivia Swann, Victor Garber, Shayan Sobhian, Arthur Darvill, Courtney Ford, Lisseth Chavez, Wentworth Miller, Neal McDonough, Ramona Young, Ciara Renée, Matt Letscher, Casper Crump, Raffi Barsoumian, Keiynan Lonsdale, Falk Hentschel, and Amy Louise Pemberton.
Well, it looks like it's now safe to say Discovery will indeed be retooling The CW, just as they ended scripted programming for TBS and TNT earlier this week. While a similar fate is unlikely for The CW, the new bosses don't seem to be particularly interested in low-budget DC content. What this means for Superman & Lois, Stargirl and The Flash remains to be seen, but a move to HBO Max could now be in the cards, although there's also a chance their days are numbered.
As for Gotham Knights, these two cancelations don't exactly bode well for its pickup prospects...
