As supernatural dramas "Arrow" and "The Flash" are approaching its season finales in the next few days, The CW has officially announced the title and synopsis for their spinoff series. The show, "DC's Legends of Tomorrow", will have several recurring characters from both the programs.

Apart from Ray Palmer aka The Atom (Brandon Routh), the drama will also have Leonard Snart aka Captain Cold (Wentworth Miller), Dr Martin Stein aka / Firestorm (Victor Garber), Mick Rory aka Heat Wave (Dominic Purcell), Rory Williams (Arthur Darvill), Jay Jackson (Franz Drameh) and Kendra Saunders aka Hawkgirl (Ciara Renee).

Meanwhile, "Arrow" star Caity Lotz will also appear in the upcoming drama. But, it's not clear whether she will reprise the role of Sara Lance aka Black Canary or portray a new character. Since the character is dead and Katie Cassidy's character Laurel Lance is trying to shape up into Canary, it remains to be seen whether the show will introduce Lazarus Pit to bring her back to life.

In the meantime, 13 episodes of the first season are likely to revolve around the transformations of superheroes and various challenges faced by them during the course of time. Though Routh will reportedly play the lead, the official synopsis does not have any detail about his character. In fact, it explains Darvill's character in "Arrow", Rip Hunter.

The description states that when heroes alone are not enough, the world needs legends. Having seen the future, one he will desperately try to prevent from happening, time-travelling rogue Rip Hunter is tasked with assembling a disparate group of both heroes and villains to confront an unstoppable threat - one in which not only is the planet at stake, but all of time itself. Can this ragtag team defeat an immortal threat unlike anything they have ever known?, according to TV Line.

So fans of the supernatural characters will have to wait until more details are released by executive producers Greg Berlanti, Marc Guggenheim, Andrew Kreisberg and Sarah Schechter. "DC's Legends of Tomorrow" is expected to premiere on The CW in 2016.
