The season finale of Legends of Tomorrow left the crew of the Waverider without Rip Hunter (Arthur Darvill) and in a world where time has been severely broken… thanks to the team. Has that broken time also affected the production of the show? Executive producer Marc Guggenheim took to Twitter this morning and announced that the series is beginning production on season three today, starting with the second episode. They will be shooting out of order to at least start.
The title of the episode, Freakshow, may be reference to a circus which would tie in to the previous announcement that Billy Zane would appear in the series as P.T. Barnum. It is possible that this is the episode Zane will appear in and due to his busy schedule, this is when he was available. Though most productions don't like shooting out of order, it can throw off both the actors and writers, it is a necessity at times due to scheduling of guest stars among other reasons. Legends302 is written by Keto Shimizu and Grainne Godfree and directed by Kevin Tancharden.
The new season will set the Legends on a path to try and fix what they've broken, but it will also put them in conflict with their former leader and his new Time Bureau.
Legends of Tomorrow is set to return October 10th at 9 PM after the season premier of The Flash.
