Fans of The CW's DC's Legends of Tomorrow were already tipped off last week by Caity Lotz why this week was going to be so important for the long-running Arrowverse. First, it marks the final week before Legends comes storming back onto screens for a sixth season with season-opener "Ground Control to Sara Lance"- where our Legends' fearless leader has been captured by some really pesky aliens, meaning a battle through time and space to not only get her back but also to save the timestream from some seriously nefarious plans. Even better, this week also marks the start of filming on the season finale- and thanks to EP Keto Shimizu, we have some episode intel to share. The 15th and final episode of the season is called "The Fungus Amongus," directed by David Geddes and written by Shimizu and James Eagan.
Here's a look at the official news on the sixth season finale, deliver by Shimizu via Twitter:
Here's your first official look at DC's Legends of Tomorrow, set to tackle time and space starting Sunday, May 2 (alongside Batwoman):
Having spent last season trying to track down the Loom of Fate in order to bring back their slain comrades and save the world from mind control, the Legends must now save history from a foe like none they've encountered in the past or future. Co-captains of the time-ship Waverider Sara Lance (Caity Lotz) and Ava Sharpe (Jes Macallan) have dealt with monsters, time anomalies, and most recently, villains from Hell, but this season they will face something even more challenging and bizarre … space aliens!
After one of their own is abducted by a ruthless alien, this new mission becomes personal. Fighting against aliens in the timeline while also working to bring back their missing team mate, it will take more than the combined powers of a dark magician, John Constantine (Matt Ryan); a semi-reformed arsonist and Waverider O.G., Mick Rory (Dominic Purcell); a historian who transforms into steel, Nate Heywood (Nick Zano); a fresh out of Hell Astra Logue (Olivia Swann); and a brother-sister air-totem-wielding duo, Zara Tarazi (Tala Ashe) and Behrad Tarazi (Shayan Sobhian) to save the world (and beyond) for a sixth time. They must recruit a new Legend, a gun-totin' Texan named Spooner (Lisseth Chavez) who was abducted by aliens when she was a child and imbued with powers that will help the team defeat their intergalactic foes. Either that or she's just crazy.

Television.
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. Aliyah O'Brien (Take Two, You Me Her) has been tapped for the recurring role of fearsome warrior Kayla. Known for her high body count and low patience for human incompetence, Kayla will be put through her paces working with and against our Legends as she's certainly not used to messing anything up much less for the better.
