Legends of Tomorrow is one of the trickier shows in the CW’s superhero TV stable, with its larger cast, presumably larger budget, and occasionally deeper ties to the rest of the universe, but its second season was one of the highlights of The CW’s superhero schedule.

Legends of Tomorrow Season 2 Story
Here’s the first official synopsis for Legends of Tomorrow Season 2…
After the defeat of the immortal villain Vandal Savage and the corrupt Time Masters who colluded with him, a new threat emerges. Dr. Nate Heywood (Nick Zano), an unconventional and charming historian, is thrust into the action upon making a shocking discovery – the Legends are scattered throughout time. Nate must find a way to rescue season one’s beloved team of heroes and rogues, including billionaire inventor Ray Palmer (Brandon Routh), who has created an exo-suit with the power to shrink him to miniscule size, as the Atom; Sara Lance (Caity Lotz), the White Canary, a trained assassin; Professor Martin Stein (Victor Garber) and Jefferson “Jax” Jackson (Franz Drameh), who together form the meta-human Firestorm; and Mick Rory (Dominic Purcell), aka Heat Wave, a career criminal. When the Legends encounter the J.S.A (the Justice Society of America, the precursor to DC’s Justice League) in the 1940s, Amaya Jiwe (Maisie Richardson-Sellers), aka Vixen, joins the team. While the team reunites, a mystery looms – the fate of former captain Rip Hunter (Arthur Darvill).
Once reunited, the Legends continue their new mission to protect the timeline from temporal aberrations – unusual changes to history that spawn potentially catastrophic consequences. When Nate, the grandson of J.S.A. member Commander Steel, unexpectedly finds himself with powers, he must overcome his own insecurities and find the hero within himself. Ultimately, the Legends will clash with foes both past and present, to save the world from a mysterious new threat.
Oh, and Marc Guggenheim dropped this sweet JSA photo on his Twitter…
Legends of Tomorrow Season 2 Villains
But there will be plenty of villains to go around, too! Matt Letscher, who we first met as the Reverse-Flash on The Flash Season 2 (and who returns for season three) will be a series regular on Legends of Tomorrow Season 2. Wentworth Miller and John Barrowman will make Legends appearances as Malcolm Merlyn and Captain Cold, as will Neal McDonough as Damien Darkh.
“For season two of Legends, we decided that the perfect antagonist for TV’s first-ever team of Super Heroes would be TV’s first-ever team of Super-Villains, recruited from the ranks of Arrow and The Flash’s deadliest adversaries,” executive producer Marc Guggenheim said. “Being huge fans of the Challenge of the Superfriends, we’ve come to call this group our ‘Legion of Doom.’”
Legends of Tomorrow Season 2 Trailer
There’s also a very short Legends of Tomorrow Season 2 trailer, and it’s got a lot of the particular brand of craziness we’ve come to know and love about the show. But most exciting of all is that if you don’t blink, you’ll get your first look at Sarah Grey as Stargirl.
Check it out…
Here’s the sizzle reel from SDCC! Check it out…
Legends of Tomorrow Season 2 Story
As for what kind of shape the show might take? Well, that’s another story. The showrunners have made it clear that not everyone will make it out of season one alive. So who knows what the team will look like when Legends of Tomorrow Season 2 comes around…it could be pretty different!
Legends of Tomorrow executive producer Phil Klemmer spoke with IGN, and he told them how they’re “determined to make every part of Season 2 feel like its own show. Episode 201 will very much be a new pilot with new good guys, new bad guys, new stakes, new dynamics, new goals. The team will basically have to find a new purpose.”
Mr. Klemmer elaborated that the second season will see the team “no longer going to be hunted by Time Masters. They’re no longer going to be burdened with having to save the world. It’s no longer going to be about saving Miranda and Jonas… it’s going to have a much, much different tone because our Legends are going to have a totally different purpose… There will be new faces and new everything.”
As for what kind of shape the season will take, Marc Guggenheim told TV Line…
(Legends) was always designed to be this hybrid, serialized/anthology show. We always said that each year would be its own distinct movie — almost to the point that you could give each season a subtitle. So we’ve got the same objective for next year and I think it’s really cool and exciting. It will have a very clear beginning, middle and end, much the same way Season 1 did. But it’ll be constructed a little bit differently, in so far as this first season was a pilot coming off of the Arrow/Flash crossover, so the villain was already set up. We weren’t able to roll things out with the mystery that we typically like to do on the shows. This will be a bit more of a cold start, which is exciting for us.
Is Marc Guggenheim hinting at what the big threat of Legends of Tomorrow Season 2 will be in this little piece of ancient aliens themed art? It sure looks like it. Check it out…
While Hawkman and Hawkgirl seem to have left the show at the conclusion of season one, this would indicate that the Hawk legacy isn’t quite finished yet. Otherwise, why would the Waverider be returning to Ancient Egypt?
Well, one thing to consider is that the backstory of Hawkman and Hawkgirl as it was presented on Legends of Tomorrow was similar to what Geoff Johns and David Goyer dreamed up in the pages of JSA in the late ’90s. There, the Ancient Egypt version of Hawkman’s origin was melded with the Silver Age science fiction version, where it was revealed that it was Thanagarian technology that arrived in the distant past that helped move things along a little bit.
Legends of Tomorrow Season 2 Cast and New Characters
The words “Justice Society of America” were spoken for the first time in the DC TV Universe during the Legends of Tomorrow season 2 finale when Patrick J. Adams showed up as Hourman. And you don’t just blow into a finale and namedrop the first superhero team in history if you don’t intend to capitalize on it, right?
In addition to the already announced Hourman and Nate “Citizen Steel” Heywood (not an original member, but someone carrying the original Commander Steel’s legacy), we’re also going to meet Obsidian (who will be played by non other than Lance Henrickson!), Stargirl, Doctor Mid-Nite.
But it turns out, Lance Henrickson is not the only Obsidian coming to Legends of Tomorrow Season 2! TV Line reports that Dan Payne (Strange Empire) is also on board as a younger version of the character, and that’s the one the team will first meet. Whether this means they meet him in the 1940s or not isn’t yet clear.
What’s more, the “new” Vixen (who is actually a version of the character from the 1940s) will be a Justice Society member. Here’s an official look at Maisie Richardson-Sellers as Amaya Jiwe:
Nick Zano (Minority Report) will play Dr. Nate Heywood, described by Deadline as “a historian whose grandfather was Commander Steel, a member of the Justice Society of America.”
While the Steel legacy in DC Comics stretches back decades, the Nate Heywood version of the character was introduced in 2007, during Geoff Johns’ tenure as writer on Justice Society. While his grandfather was cybernetically enhanced, Nate ended up being composed of living metal, with all of the advantages and drawbacks that brings with it. It’s not clear how far they’re taking that element of the character for the show.
This would appear to be this character: “a guy who grew up in the shadow of his World War II hero grandfather and has used a Han Solo-like facade to conceal his insecurity — until, that is, the development of super powers enables him to live up to his family legacy.”
So, with Nick Zano playing a character with ties to a founding JSA member’s legacy, we might want to know more about the founder, right? Well, iZombie‘s Matthew MacCaull will play Henry Heywood Sr. (Nate’s grandfather), the original Commander Steel! No other details are available right now, but add another JSA member to the roundtable! (hat tip to EW for this news)
Sarah Grey, who is starring in the big screen Power Rangers movie, has been cast as Justice Society member Courtney “Stargirl” Whitmore. No other information is available at this time, but Stargirl wields Starman’s cosmic rod and belt, and she’s been a key JSA member since her introduction in the late ’90s. (hat tip to IGN for the casting news!)
Megalyn E.K. has been well received as Mari “Vixen” McCabe both on the CW animated Vixen series, and in her guest appearance in live action on Arrow season 4. Vixen is joining up with the crew of the Waverider for Legends of Tomorrow Season 2, but because of the actresses’ other commitments, she won’t be available (she’ll continue to voice Vixen on season two of her animated series, though).
The solution? We’re going to meet an earlier version of Vixen. Maisie Richardson-Sellers (The Originals) will play Amaya Jiwe, modern Vixen Mari McCabe’s grandmother. She’ll have the same animal-power granting Totem as Mari. This appears to be her official character description (once again, via TV Line)
“the female member of an elite paramilitary team living in the 1940s. An African-American, she is scrutinized in her time for both her gender and race and thus has worked twice as hard to be a perfect soldier. That said, she blames herself for — and aims to avenge — the death of a team member for whom she had repressed feelings.”
Johnathon Schaech, who played gunslinger Jonah Hex in the season 1 episode “The Magnificent Eight” has just confirmed that he’ll be back for Legends of Tomorrow season 2 episode 6, known as “Outlaw Time.”
Mr. Schaech announced the news on Twitter…— Johnathon Schaech (@JohnSchaech) September 9, 2016
It doesn’t look like Hawkman and Hawkgirl will return, for obvious reasons. Certainly not as regulars, although there’s a chance they’ll be back for guest spots.
And yes, Brandon Routh will be back as Ray Palmer. He told us “As far as I know, I’m back. I haven’t heard otherwise!”
As for the villain? You can expect a “much, much bigger threat” this time around. More details on that here.
We’ll update this with more information as we get it.
