Before we get into this week's preview for The CW's DC's Legends of Tomorrow (one that takes things to even higher time-twisty levels), it feels only appropriate that we look to the future ourselves- in this case, the seventh season and the folks who will be penning our Legends' future adventures. Executive producer Keto Shimizu announced via Twitter earlier this week that Paiman Kalayeh and Mercedes M. Valle were joining the writers' room. In addition, LeahLame and Emily F. Cheever are now support staffers, with Lauren Fields as new SC, Dan Park as new SA, and former SA Ian Parker now their WA.
Here's a look at Shimizu's tweet introducing the Season 7 writing team and putting faces to names:
Now here's a look at the preview images, episode overview, and promo for Sunday night's episode of DC's Legends of Tomorrow, "Bishop's Gambit":
DC's Legends of Tomorrow Season 6, Episode 6 "Bishop's Gambit": SECRETS – Mick (Dominic Purcell) takes the Waverider and Kayla (guest star Aliyah O'Brien) to try and find Sara (Caity Lotz), but these enemies find themselves needing each other to survive after landing on the possible planet Sara is being held captive. After a report of an Alien attack, the Legends return to their new headquarters, Constantine's (Matt Ryan) manor, where both Spooner (Lisseth Chavez) and Astra (Olivia Swann) try to connect to the Alien. Zari is (Tala Ashe) suspicious of Constantine's behavior but isn't surprised when she learns the truth. Meanwhile, Sara devises a plan to escape by using her charm to win over Bishop (guest star Raffi Barsoumian), but she learns something more disturbing. Dominic Purcell, Nick Zano, Tala Ashe, Jes Macallan, Adam Tsekham, Matt Ryan, and Shayan Sobhian also star. Kevin Mock directed the episode written by James Eagan & Emily Cheever.
