Another DC-comics series has gotten the ax at The CW after “Legends of Tomorrow” joined “Batwoman” on the cancellation heap. Both moves were revealed Friday.
“Legends of Tomorrow” premiered in January 2016 and ran for seven seasons and 110 episodes.
“We are heartbroken, but also immensely grateful for the amazing work our cast, crew, and writers have contributed to the little show that could,” co-showrunner Keto Shimizu wrote on Twitter Friday.
Shimizu added, “Thank you to our fans; your love and passion for our strange band of misfits has made every break, every script, every daily, every cut, and every mix worth all the hard work. We see you, we love you, and you’ll always have a place on the Waverider.”
Well, folks. It’s been an incredible run. However, the CW has let us know that there will be no season 8 of #LegendsOfTomorrow. We are heartbroken, but also immensely grateful for the amazing work our cast, crew, and writers have contributed to the little show that could.

And from the show’s writers room comes a celebration to “the little show that wasn’t supposed to be” and the team that brought it together:
Thank you for being the greatest fans and sticking with us for seven seasons
