WARNING – spoilers for the season finale of Legends Of Tomorrow ahead!
With the season finale of Legends Of Tomorrow, you can see that the show will be saying goodbye to several cast members for next season. Notably Ciara Renée, who played Hawkgirl, will depart the series as a regular, although plans for an occasional return haven’t been announced. Since after 4 millenia her and Hawkman’s quest to kill Vandal Savage was concluded, the two flew off at the end of the show which showed pretty plainly how the ranks would be thinning. Falk Hentschel, who played Hawkman, was already just a recurring guest star.
This is in addition to Wentworth Miller (Captain Cold) switching from regular to recurring, so that he can also be a recurring character next season on the series he started on, The Flash, in something of a permanent crossover.
Marc Guggenheim, co-creator and executive producer, says that the framework of the show is set up for changes in the characters. “We have a very organic system in place to take a break from characters.” Plans are already in place for two more characters to be added – but so far, what characters, and who will play them, is a secret.
