The second season of the hit TV series “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow” will still have the Time Masters, despite what happened in the first season. As it turns out, it would be none other than the team of Legends themselves, led by Rip Hunter (Arthur Darvill), in the Waverider. They would take on the responsibilities of the fallen body of people, according to series executive producer and showrunner Marc Guggenheim.
In a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, Guggenheim recalled how the events of the first season would impact the team of Legends. As they begin a new chapter in their journey, they will have to do things differently than what they had done in the first season.
“In many ways, the season finale of season 1 set up the new mission statement for season 2,” Guggenheim said. “Like Rip says at the end of the season finale, there basically are no more Time Masters. We basically have to be the Time Masters.”
In the penultimate episode of the first season, the Legends were able to destroy the Oculus, the source of the power of the Time Masters. Through the Oculus, the Time Masters had been able to glimpse on the flow of the timeline, and make moves depending on how they would want to bend and manipulate events to their advantage. This was blown to bits, along with the Time Masters themselves with the price of losing Lenard Snart, aka Captain Cold, who sacrificed himself to save the team.
As for the villain of the new season, Guggenheim revealed in a previous interview that unlike how Vandal Savage (Casper Cump) was a known villain at the beginning of the season, the second season’s big bad would be revealed slowly, just like how “Arrow” and “The Flash” had done it in their previous seasons.
“Unlike season 1 of ‘Legends,’ where we basically had the big bad introduced in the crossover, what we’re going to do in season 2 of ‘Legends’ will be more similar to what you’ve experienced in the first three seasons of ‘Arrow ‘or the first two seasons of ‘Flash,’ where it’s more of a slow reveal and a little bit of a mystery,” he said.
“DC’s Legends of Tomorrow” returns to The CW this fall.
