Legends of Tomorrow: Dominic Purcell Quits? "The Studio Does Not Care"

While DC's Legends of Tomorrow still has a few weeks to go before it makes its sixth season return to The CW (on Sunday, May 2, to be precise), it looks like the drama's starting early. Not long after learning from director Nico Sachse that Dominic Purcell's Mick will be involved in a "big event" during S06E13 "Silence of the Sonograms," we're learning from Purcell himself that he's apparently leaving the series- the news posted less than 12 hours ago via Instagram. And from the sounds of things, it has to do with Purcell's dissatisfaction with the studio- and he urges Caity Lotz and Nick Zano to "look after the kids coming through" and to make sure they always continue "to question authority."

"Deal isn't done. I have no interest. What ever cash they throw on the corporate level. Im walking away from [DC's Legends of Tomorrow]. It's been a total pleasure and a humbling experience bringing @dccomics iconic character #heatwave (aka) MICK RORY to life. I smashed this character— not an actor in the world could have done better. FACT…. Such a funny cunt 🤣🤣🤣……..Time to move on and see how shit unfolds. [Caity Lotz, Nick Zano] look after the kids coming through. They need education. They are a number— teach them to not rely on loyalty from the studio. The studio does not care. The actors work ethic and talent must give them the confidence to question authority. ….Much love to all. It's not lost on me how very fortunate I am. …..ACTORS HIT ME UP ON DM," was what Purcell wrote as a caption to the post you can check out below:
