‘DC’s Legends of Tomorrow’ Gets A Crazy Season 5 Trailer!
‘DC’s Legends of Tomorrow‘ are back in 2020 for a 5th Season, and it looks to be the maddest yet!
The new trailer begins looking like another promo for the big upcoming Crisis… Until it is interrupted by Ray (Brandon Routh) on a “Mr. Rogers” style tv show called “Mr. Parker’s Cul-De-Sac”, singing the theme tune and donning a cardigan. Then it gets stranger… Lots of action, attacks from puppets, Nate (Nick Zano) flying with his legs on fire surrounded by Nate-heads with wings, Mona (Ramona Young) covered in Beebos, Mick (Dominic Purcell) fainting, swordfights, punches and a horse!
If you remember where we left the Legends in Season 4 finale, a demon named Neron had possessed the body of Ray Palmer (Brandon Routh), leaving John Constantine (Matt Ryan) to wrest Ray’s soul from the hands of Astra Logue (Olivia Swann), the “innocent girl” he failed to rescue from Hell years all those long years ago. Meanwhile, up in our world, Sara Lance (Caity Lotz) and her girlfriend Ava Sharpe (Jes Macallan) had to deal with a magical creature-fueled paranoia. Harvesting souls via an insidious Palmer Tech app, Neron is poised to “Make Earth Hell Again.” To make matters worse, Sara’s Timeship had been turned into a Noah’s Ark for various unruly monsters and magical creatures. Oh, and Ava’s Time Bureau was taken over by an evil Fairy Godmother. To defeat Neron, the Legends realised in the end that they will have to sacrifice one of their own. But it gets way worse… In attempting to change her future, Zari Tomaz (Tala Ashe) accidentally changed not just the past she shared with Nate Heywood (Nick Zano), but fundamentally change who the Legends are in Season 5.
Can our team go back to who they were next season? Can a reformed arsonist turned romance novelist Mick Rory (Dominic Purcell), a half-werewolf named Mona Wu (Ramona Young), and a punk rocker shapeshifter named Charlie (Maisie Richardson-Sellers) stop the literal Hell that Astra unleashes on the world in the finale? And what happens when the Legends awaken the original guardians of Time (no, not the Time Masters, sillies, that was season one!) who wish to erase everything the Legends have “screwed up for the better” over the past four seasons?
As we head into the 5th season, 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.
On to the important question of when Season 5 of ‘Legends of Tomorrow’ will air in the UK…
‘Legends Of Tomorrow’ was pushed to mid-season 2020 in the US, where it begins on January 14th, with a special episode that forms part of the ‘Crisis On Infinite Earths’ crossover, with “Episode 1” airing January 21st. Obviously, the UK premiere date will have to be after that.
Whilst the CW has split the ‘Crisis’ over the Christmas break, with three episodes airing in 2019 and two in 2020, Sky One has opted to hold off on airing the four ‘Crisis’ episodes they do have (Supergirl, The Flash, Arrow and Legends) in the UK until 2020. Part of their reasoning for that is due to the rights of the ‘Batwoman’ series (which forms episode 2 of the crossover) being sold to another UK broadcaster, although we (and they) don’t know who has them. I believe they have “got their fingers crossed” that whoever does have it will begin to air the show early next year, and they can run their four ‘Crisis’ episodes along with it.
Previously, the Arrowverse shows have returned around late-February/early March. All we can say for sure at this point is that ‘DC’s Legends of Tomorrow‘ Season 5 premieres, along with part 2 of ‘Supergirl’, ‘The Flash’ and ‘Arrow’ in 2020 on Sky One.
