The second season of DC's Legends of Tomorrow premiered on The CW on October 13, 2016 and concluded on April 4, 2017. It was announced on March 11, 2016.

The season aired on Thursday nights at 8:00 p.m. in the fall prior to Supernatural, and Tuesday nights at 9:00 p.m. in the spring following The Flash.

It arrived on DVD and Blu-ray on August 15, 2017.


After the defeat of the immortal villain Vandal Savage and the corrupt Time Masters who colluded with him, a new threat emerges. Dr. Nate Heywood (Nick Zano), an unconventional and charming historian, is thrust into the action upon making a shocking discovery – the Legends are scattered throughout time.

Nate must find a way to rescue season one’s beloved team of heroes and rogues, including billionaire inventor Ray Palmer (Brandon Routh), who has created an exo-suit with the power to shrink him to miniscule size, as the Atom; Sara Lance (Caity Lotz), the White Canary, a trained assassin; Professor Martin Stein (Victor Garber) and Jefferson “Jax” Jackson (Franz Drameh), who together form the meta-human Firestorm; and Mick Rory (Dominic Purcell), aka Heat Wave, a career criminal. When the Legends encounter the J.S.A (the Justice Society of America, the precursor to DC’s Justice League) in the 1940s, Amaya Jiwe (Maisie Richardson-Sellers), aka Vixen, joins the team. While the team reunites, a mystery looms – the fate of former captain Rip Hunter (Arthur Darvill).

Once reunited, the Legends continue their new mission to protect the timeline from temporal aberrations – unusual changes to history that spawn potentially catastrophic consequences. When Nate, the grandson of J.S.A. member Commander Steel, unexpectedly finds himself with powers, he must overcome his own insecurities and find the hero within himself. Ultimately, the Legends will clash with foes both past and present, to save the world from a mysterious new threat.[1]

  • The finale was originally scheduled to air on March 28, 2017, but was pushed back one week later to April 4 due to a later decision to air an encore episode of Riverdale's pilot episode on February 28, when a new episode of DC's Legends of Tomorrow was allegedly scheduled to air.
    • In addition, plans to air a two-hour double episode season premiere for the third season of iZombie on April 4 were later altered due to this change; instead, a single premiere episode aired with the season finale of DC's Legends of Tomorrow serving as a lead-in.
