DC’s Legends of Tomorrow Coming to Sky 1
This really shouldn’t come as much of a surprise to anyone, but Sky 1 have announced that the Arrow/Flash spin off Legends of Tomorrow will be coming to the channel in 2016. As with the other DC properties, it’ll also be available on NOW TV.
From Berlanti Productions, the creators of Arrow, The Flash and Supergirl, comes this epic super hero team-up. Based on the characters from DC Comics, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow is executive produced by Greg Berlanti (The Flash, Arrow, Supergirl, Blindspot), Andrew Kreisberg (The Flash, Arrow, Fringe), Marc Guggenheim (Arrow), Phil Klemmer (Chuck, The Tomorrow People) and Sarah Schechter (The Flash, Arrow, The Mysteries of Laura, Supergirl). Distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. International Television Distribution, the series comes from Berlanti Productions in association with Warner Bros. Television.
Adam MacDonald, director of Sky 1, commented: “Hot on the heels of the amazing success of Supergirl, I’m really pleased to announce that another exciting comic-book drama is coming to the channel. From the team behind our three best-loved superhero shows and with a great high-profile cast, there’s real pedigree behind DC’s Legends of Tomorrow. And it’s set in the same world as The Flash and Arrow, too, so it couldn’t be more suited to Sky 1. Our customers are going to love it.”
No news on the exact air date yet, but it airs in America on 21st January, so I would expect it pretty soon after that on Sky 1.
