Legends Of Tomorrow Season 3 Will Constantly Be 2 Inches Away From The "Jump The Shark" Line

The third season of DC's Legends of Tomorrow will focus on cleaning up the mess they made after breaking time. Going around and putting back the people, places and things that have been displaced. Like Julius Caesar roaming the beaches of modern-day Aruba. As you can tell, the series is getting bigger in scope. Season 1 was about changing one event, Season 2 about fixing a few small anomalies, and now it's about huge anachronisms.

Executive producer Marc Guggenheim told TVLine:

"The approach was to take everything that worked last year and double down, go further, make it zanier. Last year we lived maybe five inches from the Jump the Shark line. Now we're two inches in front of it."

Legends of Tomorrow

As for the Legends conflict with Rip Hunter's (Arthur Darvill) newly formed Time Bureau, which includes Jes Macallan (Mistresses):

"If [the Time Bureau] is the Beverly Hills police department, our characters are Axel Foley. We find the fun in that antagonistic relationship."

And the Legends will be adding a new member of their own, Zari Adrianna Tomaz (Tala Ashe), a Muslim hactivist from 2030:

"The idea of a character from the future was interesting to us, because she's like, 'If you saved the world, you didn't do a very good job. She takes the piss out of our heroes."

The show will also continue to explore Amaya's (Maisie Richardson-Sellers) friend ship with Mick (Dominic Purcell) and relationship with Nate (Nick Heywood)… and of course, the bromance between Nate and Ray (Brandon Routh).

DC's Legends of Tomorrow Season 3 debuts October 10th to the CW.
