Season 5 of DC’s Legends of Tomorrow has arrived on Netflix.
The show’s newest batch of episodes was dropped on the streaming service in the early hours of Wednesday ― just a week after the time-travel series aired its season 5 finale on The CW.
The most recent season of the series consists of 15 episodes, including the final hour of the five-part Arrowverse crossover, Crisis on Infinite Earths.
In the first few episodes of the season, the Legends travel to 1917 Russia, 1947 Los Angeles, 1793 France, 1990 Hongkong, and other time periods as they deal with “Encores” ― the revived souls of some of the evilest men that ever lived on Earth, which Astra Logue (Olivia Swann) unleashed from hell and scattered throughout time. Those revived evil souls include Grigori Rasputin, Charles Manson, Marie Antoinette, Genghis Khan, and many others.
Midway through the season, the series begins to focus more on Charlie (Maisie Richardson-Sellers) and her real identity as the ancient Greek deity, Clotho. Along with her sisters Atropos (Joanna Vanderham) and Lachesis (Sarah Strange), Clotho is one of the three Fates, a mythical group of god-like women who once wove the fate of mankind to their liking.
Thousands of years ago, Clotho betrayed her sisters by destroying the Loom of Fate ― the magical device used by the Fates to weave the fate of the mortals ― and scattering its pieces across the multiverse. Since then, Atropos and Lachesis have been on the hunt for Clotho, who, on the other hand, has disguised herself as the vocalist of the punk rock band, The Smell.
In addition to Swann and Richardson-Sellers, the main cast of the show’s fifth season also include Caity Lotz (Sara Lance), Dominic Purcell (Mick Rory), Brandon Routh (Ray Palmer), Tala Ashe (Zari Tarazi and Zari Tomaz), Jes Macallan (Ava Sharpe), Courtney Ford (Nora Darhk), Amy Louise Pemberton (Gideon), Nick Zano (Nate Heywood), and Matt Ryan (John Constantine). Notable recurring stars, meanwhile, include Shayan Sobhian (Behrad Tarazi), Ramona Young (Mona Wu), and Adam Tsekhman (Gary Green).
The CW renewed Legends of Tomorrow for season 6 in January. Though it has no exact release date yet, the new season is scheduled to premiere in midseason 2021.
