The CW has renewed Legends of Tomorrow and other 9 of its current series, the network announced Monday.
Variety – The renewed series are: “Arrow” (Season 7), “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend” (Season 4), “Legends of Tomorrow” (Season 4), “The Flash” (Season 5), “Jane the Virgin” (Season 5), “Riverdale” (Season 3), “Supergirl” (Season 4), and “Supernatural” (Season 14). In addition, freshman shows “Black Lightning” and “Dynasty” have been picked up for second seasons. Specific premiere dates for each series will be announced at a later time. The network will make decisions on their originals “Life Sentence,” “Valor,” “iZombie,” and “The 100” in May.
“As The CW expands to a six-night, Sunday through Friday schedule next season, we are proud to have such a deep bench of great returning series for 2018-19. By picking these ten series up for next season, we have a terrific selection of programming to choose from when we set our fall schedule in May, with more still to come,” said CW president Mark Pedowitz. “And I’m especially happy that we’ll continue to work with the incredibly talented casts, producers, and writers who create the series our fans are so passionate about.”
Collider — Though Legends of Tomorrow is finishing up its (super awesome) third season in another week*, it won’t be the last that we’ll see of Caity Lotz‘s Captain Sara Lance in the Arrowverse this year. As we were told exclusively today, Lotz will be making an appearance on the season finale of Arrow on May 17th. There are no more details to that storyline as of yet (since Arrow is just now returning from a short hiatus tonight), which means there is a lot to speculate on.
*Before we get to Arrow though, I need everyone to know that not only is the Legends‘ season finale titled “Guest Starring John Noble” (which, you know, he is), but it will feature Grodd trying to attack a young Barack Obama. If you aren’t watching this show, what are you doing with your life?
Back to Arrow — The first thing that comes to mind regarding Sara’s return to Star City is Laurel, and how Quentin is dealing with trying to rehab Earth-2/Black Canary. One wonders if it’ll be a moment of acceptance for Sara, or will she swoop in to slap her dad and remind him this isn’t reallyhis daughter? (Poor Quentin has been through a lot). A less likely possibility is that something from Legends‘ storyline (either the Darhks or something regarding Mallus) will play into Arrow. But as we’ve seen in the past, Arrow is better off when magic isn’t part of its plot.
As for Sara, she’s had a really great character arc on Legends this year, not only in assuming control of the Waverider (which makes so much sense), but also in her battle with her dark nature through Mallus. And, it’s been really nice to see her open up a little more with Ava, and working on having a real relationship (after a number of historical flings, of course, as well as a quick Constantine hookup). Her role on Legends has changed so much from being Black Canary (and then White Canary) on Arrow though, it’ll be interesting to see how she will fit back into their world outside of a full crossover, and what it will mean for that team.

Something about Legends of Tomorrow? — Benjilau
How about this: “I think we achieve peak Legends in the last two episodes,” EP Marc Guggenheim says, teasing that the penultimate hour includes two of the crazier things the show has ever done with Barack Obama being attacked by Grodd and John Noble playing himself circa the shooting of Lord of the Rings. “Both moments are just so wonderfully joyous. They’re some of the best stuff we’ve ever done on Legends.” As for the finale, which he describes as “balls-out craziness,” expect many familiar faces to return — both in the hero and villain department. “It really feels like a real finale in that respect and we really draw together almost every thread and character that we’d established over the course of the third season, and yes, that includes Beebo,” Guggenheim says. “Beebo will make a phenomenal return that is quite awesome.”
