About the series

Legends of Tomorrow is an American superhero action and adventure television series that debuted on The CW on January 21, 2016. It is developed by Greg Berlanti, Marc Guggenheim, Andrew Kreisberg and Phil Klemmer. They also executive produce the series along with Sarah Schechter and Chris Fedak. Legends of Tomorrow is produced by Bonanza Productions, Berlanti Productions, Warner Bros. Television and DC Entertainment. It is a spin-off from Arrow and The Flash, and employs characters based on eponymous DC Comics counterparts.

The adventure series follows Rip Hunter (Arthur Darvill), a time-traveler who has to travel 150 years back to the year 2016 and assemble a team of superheroes and supervillains in order to save the entire world from immortal Vandal Savage (Casper Crump) and his treacherous plans. The series is set to consist of 16 episodes.

Critical reception and chances of renewal

Critical reception of Legends of Tomorrow has been mixed, with some critics praising the attention-grabbing pilot for its sharp plot and epic scope. There`s also been criticism of the distractingly overcrowded list of characters and of poor delivery of a potentially promising concept. Legends of Tomorrow holds an 8.5/10 IMDb rating, and 53%, indicating mixed or average reviews. It seems that this ambitious DC adaptation is balancing on a thin line, and whether or not it pulls off the trick of gaining enough momentum throughout the season remains to be seen. 3.14 million viewers have tuned in to see the premiere episode, with 1.2 million in the P18-49 demographic, so there`s enough hope invested by the viewers.
