Oliver Queen and Barry Allen will soon have some new friends. DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, a third show set within the world of Arrow and The Flash, has just been greenlit by The CW.

Arrow, The Flash, iZombie and now…DC’s Legends of Tomorrow.

The world of DC Entertainment is alive and well on The CW. The home of three of DC Entertainment’s hit TV shows has just greenlit another one—DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, a super hero team show that’s set within the Arrow and Flash universe.

According to the official synopsis: "When heroes alone are not enough...the world needs legends. Having seen the future, one he will desperately try to prevent from happening, time-traveling rogue Rip Hunter is tasked with assembling a disparate group of both heroes and villains to confront an unstoppable threat — one in which not only is the planet at stake, but all of time itself. Can this ragtag team defeat an immortal threat unlike anything they have ever known?" 

DC’s Legends of Tomorrow will feature a mix of actors that viewers of The Flash and Arrow are already familiar with and new faces, including Victor Garber (The Flash) Brandon Routh (Arrow), Caity Lotz (Arrow), Arthur Darvill (Doctor Who), Ciarra Renee, Franz Drameh, Dominic Purcell (The Flash) and Wentworth Miller (The Flash). The series hails from Bonanza Productions, Berlanti Productions and Warner Bros. TV with Berlanti, Marc Guggenheim, Andrew Kreisberg and Sarah Schechter exec producing.

This is just the latest news to break in what’s been a very busy week for #DCTV as the networks prepare for their annual Upfront presentation next week. Earlier this week, CBS greenlit Supergirl, a small screen adaptation of the popular Super Hero, while The CW announced that they were renewing iZombie for a second season.
