Sky1 has announced that DC’s new Legends of Tomorrow series will begin airing on the channel in the UK next year.
Launching in the US on 21 January 2016 on The CW, the superhero action drama is set in the same universe as The Flash and Arrow.
The show stars Arthur Darvill (Broadchurch), Victor Garber (The Flash), Brandon Routh (Superman Returns), Caity Lotz (Arrow), Ciara Renée (The Flash), Franz Drameh (Attack the Block), Dominic Purcell (The Flash) and Wentworth Miller (The Flash).
Legends of Tomorrow features time-traveling rogue Rip Hunter (Arthur Darvill), having seen the future, putting together a group of both heroes and villains to take on the formidable, unstoppable threat of Vandal Savage – a threat that not only puts the planet but all of time itself at stake.
Adam MacDonald, director of Sky 1, commented: “Hot on the heels of the amazing success of Supergirl, I’m really pleased to announce that another exciting comic-book drama is coming to the channel. From the team behind our three best-loved superhero shows and with a great high-profile cast, there’s real pedigree behind DC’s Legends of Tomorrow. And it’s set in the same world as The Flash and Arrow, too, so it couldn’t be more suited to Sky 1. Our customers are going to love it.”
