The fifth season of DCs Legends of Tomorrow has the potential to be its biggest yet, and with the Crisis on Infinite on Earths approaching the legends have never been needed more. But When will DCs Legends of Tomorrow be coming to Netflix? Let’s find out!

The legends have caused plenty of chaos and cleaned up plenty of chaos themselves as they’ve traveled across space and time.


When will DC’s Legends of Tomorrow season 5 be on Netflix?

This is the first season since its debut that DC’s Legends of Tomorrow will premiere in January instead of October.

The fifth season will begin on January 14th, 2020 and will conclude the crossover Crisis on Infinite Earths. It has been acknowledged that the crossover isn’t the official ‘season premiere’ and the “first” episode will air sometime in January 2020.

Even though the latest season will be arriving much later than usual, it won’t impact the Netflix release date too severely. If we are to assume that season five, at a minimum, airs seventeen episodes (that includes the crossover) then the season finale will air in May.

Typically, Arrowverse, amongst other CW titles, have period breaks between episodes. This could push the finale back to the end of May. Regardless, we aren’t expecting to see a massive change in the Netflix release date for season 5 of DC’s Legends of Tomorrow. Expect the fifth season to arrive in May or June 2020.

What to expect from season 5 of DC’s Legends of Tomorrow?

We could see some huge changes going into the fifth season of DC’s Legends of Tomorrow. With the crossover of Crisis on Infinite Earths arriving first, there’s a huge chance that some of the legends may die along the way. Either that, we could see alternate versions of our favorite heroes.

It has also been confirmed that Brandon Routh and Courtney Ford will be leaving the Legends team. So expect to see some new blood added to the core cast.

Whether or not Routh and Ford will be moving to a separate Arrowverse show is unclear at this time.

Who is the villain of season 5?

We’ve yet to receive a trailer for season five, and plot information is very thin at the time of writing.

With the introduction of magical beings in the fourth season, it could be expected that some of these villains will be causing plenty of hijinks across the timeline.

Is DC’s Legends of Tomorrow leaving Netflix?

Contrary to internet rumors, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow isn’t leaving Netflix anytime soon. Many of The CW titles currently on Netflix, Arrowverse included, are licensed to Netflix for the foreseeable future.

At the earliest, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow will leave Netflix in 2025, but this would take for the series to be canceled after season five. The easiest way to know when any of The CW titles are leaving Netflix is to add five years on after the final season arrives on Netflix.
