DC’s Legends of Tomorrow Season 2, Rogue Season 4 and Timeless Season 1 start filming in Vancouver and British Columbia this week.
DC’s Legends of Tomorrow – Season 2 (TV Series)
After a decent performance in its freshman year, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow was renewed for season 2 back in March. The cast lineup for season 2 will look slightly different after the departure of Ciara Renée (aka Kendra/Hawkgirl), Falk Hentschel (aka Carter/Hawkman) and Casper Crump (aka Vandal Savage). And sadly, we won’t see as much of Wentworth Miller (aka Leonard Snart/Captain Cold) during season 2 as his time will be shared across the entire DC superhero TV universe, which is conveniently all filmed here in Vancouver. Miller is in town as of today, but we’re not sure which show he’s filming at the moment. Earlier this month he and Dominic Purcell (who plays Mick Rory/Heatwave) finished filming the Prison Break reboot here in Vancouver.
Legends of Tomorrow season 2 will also have some new faces. Nick Zano (Minority Report, The Final Destination) has signed on to play Nate Heywood (aka Citizen Steel) and Maisie Richardson-Sellers (Star Wars: The Force Awakens, The Originals) will portray Amaya Jiwe (aka Vixen). We also can’t forget that Suits star Patrick J. Adams was introduced as Rex Tyler (aka Hourman) from the Justice Society of America during last season’s finale.
Not much has been confirmed for the season 2 storyline so far, however, showrunner Marc Guggenheim shared some cryptic tweets that hint at some of the timelines the team will be visiting. The first of which is an image of what appears to be the Waverider landing in the Egyptian desert between 2 pyramids. The second image he shared looks like a scene from the Elizabethan era.

Lastly, Guggenheim also shared a photo of one of the sets at their studio… it leaves lots to the imagination.
