Legends of Tomorrow, arguably the best superhero show on The CW (yep, I said it), is in the midst of an incredible (and somehow its best yet) fifth season. Here’s everything you need to know about the new season to keep you up to date with the misadventures of the crew of the Waverider!

Legends of Tomorrow Season 5 Return Date

The next episode of Legends of Tomorrow is called “The One Where We’re Trapped on TV” and it airs on May 26. Here’s the official synopsis:

After Charlie (Maisie Richardson-Sellers) does the one thing that goes against her nature when it comes to her sisters, she tries to protect the Legends by scattering them in different television shows.  Of course, in true Legends style some can’t just be blissfully ignorant and happy but figure out a way to end up messing with the system.

Legends of Tomorrow Season 5 Cast

Departures are never something we want to see on this show, but here are a couple of big ones. Both Brandon Routh and Courtney Ford will be leaving the show as series regulars on Legends of Tomorrow season 5.

“Brandon and Courtney have been invaluable members of the Legends family,” executive producers Phil Klemmer, Grianne Godfree and Keto Shimizu said in a statement via Deadline. “They have always brought a level passion and collaboration to their characters and to the show — both on and off the screen – that we deeply admire and for which we are eternally grateful.”

Apparently the decision has been made to “wrap up their storyline.” Routh gave us an interview where he talks about why he isn’t ready to leave the show and that it wasn’t his or Courtney’s decision to do so.

We wrote more about why we’re not ready to see Nora Darhk go here.

Olivia Swann, who played Astra Logue, one of John Constantine’s major foes, is now a series regular for Legends of Tomorrow season 5. Astra first appeared last season as a figure from Constantine’s past bent on giving the Legends all kinds of trouble, including releasing the spirits of Charles Manson and Genghis Khan back into the timeline. 

“A lot of what Constantine is going to be dealing with this is season is his very complicated relationship with [Astra] and a desire to save her despite all the pain and trouble she’s putting us through,” executive producer Keto Shimizu told EW.

Astra was created by Jaime Delano and John Ridgway in Hellblazer #8 (1988).

Jes Macallan is also now a series regular for Legends of Tomorrow Season 5, so expect Ava Sharpe to spend a LOT more time on the Waverider. We’re okay with that!

Legends of Tomorrow Season 5 Story

This season will apparently delve into elements of “how fame affects people” according to some recent interviews from the showrunners. We have more details on this right here.
