The CW has released the official synopsis for the third season of “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow” which explains how Rip Hunter (Arthur Darvill) comes back into the show’s action and where the show will go following in the wake of the second season finale.
The show ended this season with the legends discovering that in meddling in their own timeline, they’ve effectively broken history and now must restore the damage. Here are the plot details:
“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 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 discovers one of them in the middle of his well-deserved vacation in Aruba.
Seeing this as an opportunity to continue their time travelling heroics, Sara wastes no time in getting the Legends back together. 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.
The release contains no mention of Amaya Jiwe (Maisie Richardson-Sellers). New characters are expected to be along for the ride though so it’s possible Amaya won’t be back.
The series returns to screens this Fall.
