‘Legends of Tomorrow’ Gets 4 Additional Episodes From the CW

Order brings DC series up to 17 episodes for Season 2

The CW has ordered four more episodes of “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow,” TheWrap has learned.

The order brings the superhero drama’s second season to 17 total episodes this season, following its initial 13-episode Season 2 order earlier this year. That total is less than the network’s other DC series with “Arrow” and “The Flash” set to air 23 episodes this season, and “Supergirl” set to air 22.

The order comes as fans await the network’s decision on its two new dramas, “Frequency” and “No Tomorrow.”

“Legends of Tomorrow” hails from Berlanti TV and Warner Bros. TV, and stars Brandon Routh, Victor Garber, Caity Lotz, Arthur Darvill, Franz Drameh, Dominic Purcell, Nick Zano, and Maisie Richardson-Sellers.

Like the network’s other superhero shows, “Legends” has been a solid ratings performer for The CW, averaging 2.3 million viewers and a 0.9 rating among adults 18-49 in Season 2.
