This is something that many people – us included – have though was coming for quite some time.
We’ve loved DC’s Legends Of Tomorrow and were looking forward to watching Season 8.
However, it was rather odd when the series wasn’t among the list of shows that The CW had renewed for upcoming seasons a few weeks back.
Other DC Comics series such as The Flash and Superman & Lois were renewed for new seasons.
DC’s Legends Of Tomorrow has been cancelled after seven seasons!
Co-showrunner Keto Shimizu broke the news on Twitter, stating:
Well, folks. It’s been an incredible run. However, the CW has let us know that there will be no Season 8 of Legends of Tomorrow. We are heartbroken, but also immensely grateful for the amazing work our cast, crew, and writers have contributed to the little show that could.

Was DC’s Legends Of Tomorrow Season 8 even on the cards?
Legends Season 7 averaged 860,000 total weekly viewers and a 0.2 demo rating (with Live+7 playback), up in audience and steady in the demo versus its previous season.
Out of the 19 dramas The CW has aired this TV season, it ranks No. 9 in total audience and trails only All American, The Flash and Superman & Lois in the demo.
So, it does seem as though the show was doing OK on the network.
However, it was diminishing returns and with The CW about to be sold off, it looks like they are cancelling most of their DC shows.
