Only a little more than a week after we learned that actor Adam Tsekhman and his on-screen persona Gary Green would be getting promotions, it looks like DC's Legends of Tomorrow are back and back to work on the sixth season of The CW series. How do we know? Because the fine folks from the network were kind enough to share some first-looks from behind the scenes of the COVID-safe set. Here's a look at some of your favorite Legends, proving themselves to be true masked heroes:

While it's still too early for specific details on the "little green men," series co-showrunner Phil Klemmer sees the sixth season's "big bads" as a way of streamlining the season's storyline mythology. Considering just how deeply complex this season's narratives became, the change is a welcome one: "I think we like them because on the surface they were so stupid. You get to this fatigue at the end of a season where your mythology becomes very complicated and your bad guys' plans, you know, take a lot of explanation and they become a little heady when you start talking about free will and Fates, and you're just looking for a palette cleanser, " Klemmer explained. "To think about little green men with laser guns who just want to rule the world, you know, Marvin the Martian kinda shape, you're like, "Yes, that's what we need!" Not having to understand who our villains are on any kind of emotional scale means we can focus on the emotional stories of our characters, but then it's just a story of how do we kick these guys' asses."
