The CW’s Legends of Tomorrow arrives exclusively on Netflix next year as part of an exclusive contract. We’ll have the full details of the show below plus an accurate release date for the series too.
The series sits alongside other DC licenses on The CW including Arrow, The Flash, and Supergirl and is part of the so-called ‘Arrowverse’. The series is now into its third season after first debuting on The CW back in January 2016.
Season 3 sees the team replaced as the time bureau decides they’re better off without the legends. This season, you’ll see the teams biggest enemy yet. This season will also often resemble a series of Doctor Who episodes as they travel in multiple time periods with individual missions.
The series was pushed forward to release around the same time as Arrow, The Flash, and Supergirl. The reason for this is unknown but the only effect it’ll have on the Netflix release date is that it’ll be sooner.
Netflix Release Date
Please note: This only applies to Netflix US.
Netflix US is getting the show exclusively early thanks in part to the release date but thanks to the aforementioned CW contract. This contract brings all CW shows to Netflix earlier than normal.
Whereas before we’d have to wait until next October, we now only have to wait until around a week after the season finale. The series is currently on track to wrap up in mid-April 2018. That means Netflix will be getting season 3 of Legends of Tomorrow in either late April 2018 or early May 2018. We’ll update this article closer to the time with specifics but either way, we don’t have too long to wait.
What about Netflix UK?
Over in the United Kingdom, all of CW’s DC licensed shows are unfortunately owned by Sky. That means you’ll find weekly episodes, as well as the back catalog exclusively available on their live TV channels plus their NowTV streaming service.
We hope that gives you an idea of when Legends of Tomorrow is hitting Netflix. Will you be watching on The CW or Netflix?
