Legends of Tomorrow
Legends on Sundays.
Legends of Tomorrow season 6 premieres May 2nd on a new night at 8 p.m.
Followed by Batwoman in a new Sunday teamup.
The season 6 premiere is titled Ground Control to Sara Lance which is fitting since Space Aliens abducted the Waverider Co-Captain in the season 5 finale.
Season 6 Synopsis.
Having spent last season trying to track down the Loom of Fate in order to bring back their slain comrades, the Legends must now save history from a foe like none they’ve encountered in the past or future. Co-captains of the time-ship Waverider Sara Lance and Ava Sharpe have dealt with monsters, time anomalies, and most recently, villains from Hell, but this season they will face something even more challenging and bizarre … space aliens!
After Sara is abducted by a ruthless alien, their new mission becomes personal. It will take more than the combined powers of a dark magician, John Constantine; a semi-reformed arsonist, Mick Rory; historian who transforms into steel, Nate Heywood; and a brother-sister wind-totem-wielding duo, Zara Tarazi and Behrad Tarazi to save the world for a sixth time. They must recruit a new Legend, “Spooner” Cruz who was abducted by aliens when she was a child and supposedly imbued with powers that will help the team defeat their intergalactic foes. Either that or she’s just crazy…
Cast: Caity Lotz, Dominic Purcell, Nick Zano, Tala Ashe, Matt Ryan, Jes Macallan, Shayan Sobhian, Olivia Swann, Adam Tsekhman & Lisseth Chavez.
Lisseth Chavez is Esperanza “Spooner” Cruz, who lives off the grid, devising ingenious tech for the detection of — and defence against — space aliens. A survivor of a childhood alien encounter, Spooner now believes she has the ability to communicate telepathically with aliens — making her the perfect recruit for the Legends.
And Adam Tsekhman‘s Gary Greee has been promoted to full-fledged Legend.
Showrunners: Phil Klemmer, Keto Shimizu and Grainne Godfree.
