In our last update on production on the sixth season of The CW's DC's Legends of Tomorrow, we were getting the heads up from series star Caity Lotz (Sara Lance aka White Canary) that she was on the fifth day of directing the season's fifth episode, "The Satanist's Apprentice" (written by Keto Shimizu and Ray Utarnachitt). When we last left our Legends, some little green folk had abducted Sara- which means this go-around kicks off with our heroes out to rescue their fearless leader and hunt down extraterrestrials who have been displaced throughout history. Now, we're getting another look from Lotz on how things are going- and how much she appreciates being back in the director's chair again.
Here's a look at Lotz's behind-the-scenes tweet, which not just throws a whole lotta love Olivia Swann's (Astra) way but also features an unexpected (even by him) photobomb from Matt Ryan (Constantine)- or is that his stunt double? We'll be honest- we're not quite sure. Either way… greetings!
So grateful to directing again this season. We had so much fun last night even though we didn't wrap until 3:30am! @liviaswann has been such a rock star can't wait for you all to see her in this ep! pic.twitter.com/j3DOsqCLcM

Lisseth Chavez (Chicago P.D., The OA) joins the long-running series in the series regular role of Esperanza "Spooner" Cruz. Tough and self-sufficient, Cruz is a tech whiz when it comes to detecting space aliens and providing defenses from them. Having survived a childhood encounter with an alien, Cruz now believes she can communicate telepathically with aliens.
