The CW’s “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow” usually undergoes a few casting changes each season, and that will be the case this year as actor Victor Garber has confirmed he’s departing the series sometime during the current third season which launched this week.
Garber has played Professor Martin Stein since the show’s beginning and appeared prior to that on “The Flash”. In both instances he was half of the superhero ‘Firestorm’ – merging first with Robbie Raymond (Robbie Amell) and on ‘Legends’ with Jefferson Jackson (Franz Drameh).
Garber is returning to Broadway to team with Bernadette Peters for the Tony-winning revival of “Hello, Dolly!,” the pair taking over from David Hyde Pierce and Bette Midler. Their first show is on January 20th.
Garber’s exit from the show has reportedly been planned well in advance and will be incorporated into the plot of season three. Unlike other cast members, like Wentworth Miller’s Leonard Snart who recurred last season, there’s currently no plans for Garber to be in the fourth season.
Garber remains listed as a series regular, but there’s no word how long he’ll actually be on the show this season.
