The CW has ordered an additional four episodes of “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow,” bringing the current Season 2 order to a total of 17 episodes.
In addition to “Legends of Tomorrow,” all the CW superhero shows have full season orders, as “Arrow” and “The Flash” were initially renewed with 23-episode seasons, and when “Supergirl” moved from CBS to CW, the network picked it up for a second season with 22 episodes.
“DC’s Legends” was a midseason show in its freshman season, so it was only ordered with 13 episodes for this fall.
The lowest-rated of the CW’s superhero quartet, “Legends” is a healthy performer for the younger-skewing network, averaging 2.34 million viewers and a 0.9 rating in the 18-49 demo in its second season, including DVR viewership. The show improved the time period from last fall, which was previously slotted with “The Vampire Diaries,” by 13% among adults 18-49 and 35% in total viewers.
The CW still hasn’t made a decision on the future of new fall series “No Tomorrow” and “Frequency.”
Coming up midseason on CW is Greg Berlanti’s newest addition to his foursome with “Riverdale,” plus the returns of “iZombie,” “Reign,” “The Originals,” and the fan-favorite series “The 100.”
Entertainment Weekly has revealed this week’s cover today and guess who’s on it? Our CW Superheroes, of course! Grant, Stephen Amell and Melissa Benoist are seen on the cover with big smiles and if you look closely you’ll be able to spot Brandon Routh in his A.T.O.M suit as well. Sadly there is no sight of Caity on the cover but she appears to be in the photoshoot (hopefully to be released soon) according to the video bellow!
On an early October afternoon, the casts of The CW’s “Arrowverse” serials gathered in an airport hangar on the outskirts of Vancouver B.C. for a historic event. From Arrow, there was Stephen Amell (Oliver Queen, aka the show’s emerald archer), David Ramsey (Diggle/Spartan), Willa Holland (Thea Queen/Speedy) and Emily Brett Rickards (Felicity Smoak). From The Flash, there was Grant Gustin (Barry Allen, aka the show’s scarlet speedster), Candice Patton (Iris West), Tom Cavanagh (H.R. Wells), Danielle Panabaker (Dr. Caitlin Snow) and Carlos Valdes (Cisco/Vibe). From Legends of Tomorrow, there was Brandon Routh (Ray Palmer/The Atom), Caity Lotz (Sara Lance/White Canary), Dominic Purcell (Mick Rory/Heat Wave), Franz Drameh (Jax, one half of Firestorm), Victor Garber (Dr. Martin Stein, the other half of Firestorm). And from Supergirl, there was the maiden of might herself, Melissa Benoist, the only actor dressed in their caped crusader colors. (Must be dry cleaning day at the Hall of Justice.)
Calling this unprecedented all-star squadron of comic book stars to order, director Dermott Downs instructed them to perform a very important heroic duty: Surprising Benoist with a “Happy Birthday” serenade. “That was overwhelming,” says the actress, who turned 28 on the day in question. “I think that will be the first and only time I will be sung to by a group of superheroes.” Of course, Benoist and all of her Super-Friends had to actually work on her birthday; not even the girl of steel gets a day off for turning another year older. The occasion of this massive team-up: filming a four-show crossover event, which begins in the final scene of the Nov. 28 episode of Supergirl and unfolds over the next three nights in episodes of The Flash, Arrowand Legends. Entertainment Weekly visited the set of the massive undertaking and brings you a report in our new issue, on sale this week. We got to see Supergirl fly, The Flash and Cisco tear a hole in the fabric of space-time (or pretend to), and even saw someone get shot. No, we can’t tell you who, but we can tell you the threat that set the sprawling plot in motion: The Dominators, mind-controlling extraterrestrials threatened by Earth’s surging population of metahumans. If you’re wondering if “mind-control” = “we’re totally going to see these superheroes fight each other,” then you’re absolutely [REDACTED].
Caity attended yesterday Entertainment Weekly’s PopFest with her DCTV co-stars Stephen Amell, Grant Gustin, Melissa Benoist and producer Greg Berlanti. Photos from the event have been added to our gallery, and you can also watch a video with the highlights from the panel bellow. Thank you to my friend Gabby for the photos!

Caity was at the Celebration Of 100th Episode Of CW’s Arrow last night, in Vancouver. She looked absolutely gorgeous wearing a black jumpsuit (spoiler alert: we’re pretty sure she borrowed it from Katie Cassidy and it only makes us awee more over their friendship). I’ve added to the gallery photos from the party!
Episode stills from the third episode of season 2 of DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, titled Shogun have been released. The episode is set to air on October 27th. I’ve added to the gallery three stills that feature Caity to the gallery.
Caity was photographed on set of DC’s Legends of Tomorrow this Wednesday, for a special crossover episode with The Flash, Arrow and Supergirl. Photos from the set have been added to the gallery.
The CW, once a network of teen dramas with an audience average age below 20, has shifted more into superhero thrillers and comic-book action series that have pulled a wider range of fans in recent years. Standing out in the pack is “Legends of Tomorrow,” which returned for a second season Thursday night.
The series’ star Caity Lotz, who plays White Canary, came to the CW on “Arrow” after a stint touring with Avril Lavigne as a dancer. We chatted with Lotz about landing the “superhero shows kind of redefining the network,” her dance background, and how Lavigne helped prep her for stunts.
On her background of touring Europe in a girl band and dancing for Avril Lavigne:
Caity Lotz: I started coming to L.A. when I was like 17, doing dance jobs. Then I lived in Europe for two years, and then I was on tour for almost another year. I was in a singing group for this random period of my life — I was in a pop group, a girl group. It was definitely fun — I’d never been to Europe before and I went over with a couple of my best friends and we had a good time. We were based in Berlin but we traveled a lot. And then after that I went on a tour dancing with Avril Lavigne. [Dancing] is what brought me to L.A. I started with jazz and contemporary, and then I moved into freestyle and hip-hop and breaking. I’m a performer, but I was not the strong singer in the group — I mean, I’m not terrible. But I’m not going back to singing, that’s for sure.
On why she stopped dancing for Avril Lavigne:
C.L.: When I got back from Europe, and I went on tour with Avril, I was like “I don’t want to dance anymore, this isn’t exciting for me.” We were performing in front of arenas full of people and I just was not excited. It wasn’t making me scared or nervous, and I was like “I think it’s time to move on.” And I started taking acting classes — I’d been interested in it for a while but was like, I’m not an actor, and then I was like, well I’ll just take classes, and then I did a two-year program and fell in love with it. And after that I just got lucky.
Caity is one of the many faces to join Alisha Goldstein’s project Nice People Only. The photography project, inspired by Andy Warhol’s portraits, serves to promote Los Angeles creative community. You’ll find four portraits of Caity in our gallery, along with a little Q&A bellow. Visit nicepeopleonly.com to see the whole project!
What’s the most natural talent or ability you have? And what’s a talent you wish you had?
I was born with a pretty good athletic ability and body awareness. But other than that, I think my gift was a strong work ethic. I wasn’t naturally the best at anything, but I’d bust my ass so much I’d get there. A talent I wish I had would to be an amazing singer/songwriter. It’s such a beautiful way to express yourself and entertain people.
Where do you draw the most inspiration?
I think inspiration to create comes from everday life, but the only way it can manifest into anything is when I have quiet alone time to think. I have to shut off my mind for ideas to flow through. If I don’t give myself this time my creative world gets stagnant. My inspiration to hustle and grow comes from people that are positive, passionate, joyful, selfless, and curious. It’s amazing how a 10 minute conversation with someone like that can set my soul on fire.
What’s the best advice you’ve received?
Someone asked me what advice my 80-year-old self would give to current me. It was such a simple question that really gave me some perspective. My take away: don’t waste time not loving yourself and this funny life. I want to look back at my life and say I had fun, and I made people happy.
