The Season 2 finale of Legends of Tomorrow saw the crew of the Waverider failing to make it to Aruba for some R&R; instead, they crash-landed in Los Angeles of 2017, where (and when) a mess of anachronisms are mixed up all in one time and place. Dozens of buildings appear to be from all different eras, and despite crashing in the middle of a street, a bunch of T.rexes are there to greet them. When Sara Lance says, “Guys, I think we broke time,” it’s totally an understatement.
Thankfully, now we know when Season 3 of Legends of Tomorrow will air on The CW so the crew can start undoing the mess they created in the Season 2 finale. They’ll get their chance when Season 3 premieres on Tuesday, October 10 at 9 p.m. Eastern.
Apparently, their actions revisiting a place and time they had already been fractured time itself, which scattered all sorts of things about time. In Season 3, they’ll have to figure out how to return all manner of people, objects, and animals to the right time periods — including some dinosaurs.
Legends of Tomorrow Season 3 will kick off immediately after The Flash, which begins its fourth season at 8 p.m. that same night.
Check out the Season 3 synopsis right here:
“After the defeat of Eobard Thawne and his equally nefarious Legion of Doom, the Legends face a new threat created by their actions at the end of last season. In revisiting a moment in time that they had already participated in, they have essentially fractured the timeline and created anachronisms — a scattering of people, animals, and objects all across time! Our team must find a way to return all the anachronisms to their original timelines before the time stream falls apart.
But before our Legends can jump back into action, Rip Hunter (Arthur Darvill) and his newly established Time Bureau call their methods into question. With the Time Bureau effectively the new sheriffs in town, the Legends disband — until Mick Rory (Dominic Purcell) discovers one of them in the middle of his well-deserved vacation in Aruba. Seeing this as an opportunity to continue their time traveling heroics, Sara (Caity Lotz) wastes no time in getting the Legends back together. We reunite with billionaire inventor Ray Palmer (Brandon Routh), the unconventional historian-turned-superhero Nick Heywood (Nick Zano), and Professor Martin Stein (Victor Garber) and Jefferson “Jax” Jackson (Franz Drameh), who together form the meta-human Firestorm.
Once reunited, the Legends will challenge the Time Bureau’s authority over the timeline and insist that however messy their methods may be, some problems are beyond the Bureau’s capabilities. Some problems can only be fixed by Legends. 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, Marc Guggenheim, Andrew Kreisberg, Phil Klemmer and Sarah Schechter.”
