Outside of knowing that Matt Ryan would be reprising his role as John Constantine as a series regular for the fourth season of ‘Legends of Tomorrow,’ there haven’t been many details until now. The synopsis for the upcoming season shares quite a bit of detail as to what we can expect from the next run, but as they’ve traditionally been a bit light on information, you have to wonder what we don’t yet know.
The central area of problems we’ll see being dealt with here is “fugitives’ or mythical beasts now stuck in various periods of time. The Time Bureau might be able to science things up to go through the time stream, but anything magical is a little out of their realm which is why Constantine will be sticking around.
Here is what you can expect!
After defeating the demon Mallus by cuddling him to death with a giant stuffed
animal named Beebo, the Legends are ready to ease off the gas. Sara (Caity Lotz)
and her team join Ava Sharpe (Jes Macallan) and the Time Bureau to help clean up
the last few remaining anachronisms. The job seems straightforward enough until Constantine (Matt Ryan) arrives to inform them that, in solving one major problem,
they have created another, much larger one. When the Legends let time crumble in
order to release and defeat Mallus, the barrier between worlds softened. History is
now infected with “Fugitives” – magical creatures from myths, fairytales, and legends. Having been expelled throughout time by people like Constantine, these Fugitives are
now returning to our world in droves and making a real mess of things. As the Time
Bureau is distrustful of and ill-equipped to deal with magic, the Legends must team
up with everyone’s favorite demonologist to set history back on track.
Sara and Constantine are joined by compassionate inventor Ray Palmer
(Brandon Routh), hotheaded ex-con Mick Rory (Dominic Purcell), rebellious
totem-bearer Zari (Tala Ashe), and heartbroken historian-turned-superhero
Nate (Nick Zano) as they set out to save the world – and their legacy. It’s the
familiar fun of the Legends time-travelling across historical events and encountering famous figures with an added shot of magical craziness! Based on the characters
from DC, DC’S LEGENDS OF TOMORROW is from Bonanza Productions Inc. in
association with Berlanti Productions and Warner Bros. Television, with executive producers Greg Berlanti (“Arrow,” “The Flash,” “Supergirl”), Phil Klemmer (“The Tomorrow People,” “Chuck”) and Sarah Schechter (“Arrow,” “The Flash”).
We only have to wait until this October for ‘Legends of Tomorrow’ to return on Mondays! With history once again on the line there are endless possibilities on how these monsters can be handled.
