Constantine tries to warn Sara about the darkness coming, but Sara dismisses him. The Legends end up at Woodstock where they see a unicorn impale a woman and eat her heart. It then releases magical goo at every Legend minus Sara, making them hallucinate. Realizing he was right, Sara locates Constantine and informs him of the situation. Constantine cures the affected Legends and sends the unicorn to hell with a spell, using Gary, who loses a nipple in the process, as bait. Meanwhile, Nate and Rory go an adventure leading to Nate attempting to reconnect with his distant father Hank. Back at his accommodation, Constantine experiences a dark form of magic throwing him about the place, before it writes in blood that it is coming for him.

When an innocent woman is accused of witchcraft, her daughter's Fairy Godmother attacks the townsfolk. Zari fights to save the mother, who was executed in the original history, while Constantine and the Legends try to separate the daughter and the Fairy Godmother so Constantine can banish her to hell. However, the Fairy Godmother turns Ray and Mick into pigs and seals Constantine's mouth shut, but when the daughter releases her, the Legends return to normal. Constantine offers the Fairy Godmother the chance to avoid hell by becoming her new magical conduit, but she refuses, stating that she knows who is after Constantine and would rather go to hell than anger him. Nate discovers his father is overseeing the committee that funds the Time Bureau and struggles to prove that magic is real to keep the Bureau funded.

The team attempt to scope out The Smell, with Ray earning their trust by stealing one of the Queen's prized corgis, and discovers that instead of a leprechaun the fugitive turns out to be a shapeshifter and the band's lead singer Charlie. Fearing imprisonment, Charlie knocks Ray unconscious (despite him preparing to defend her) and steals his A.T.O.M. suit, using it to try and kill Sara, Zari, Mick, and Constantine when they attempt to catch her and banish her to hell. Eventually, Ray wakes up and saves the group by dismembering his suit via voice activation, and Charlie is caught. However as Constantine attempts to banish her, she shapeshifts to resemble each of them and ending with Amaya while calling them out for not acting like heroes, causing Zari to feel sympathy for it. Out of annoyance, Constantine casts a spell that renders Charlie unable to shapeshift ever again, leaving her trapped in Amaya's form. They decide to keep her as prisoner on board the Waverider.

Charlie breaks Constantine out of the Time Bureau and together they return to Woodstock and kill the unicorn. Upon returning to 2018, they discover that Mick, Nate and Ray have been killed by the Fairy Godmother, while Sara, Ava and Gideon have formed "Sirens of Space-Time". Another attempt to fix this sees Mick bond with the Fairy Godmother to begin a new criminal career while Sara, Ray and Nate are now the "Puppets of Tomorrow".

Meanwhile, Nora saves Constantine and they recover Ray's soul from the "Soul Exchange" with Astra's help. They return to Earth, but Ray is stuck until Neron leaves his body. Seeing how popular her dragon has made young Zari inspires the Legends to open Heyworld, Hank's theme park. Neron and Tabitha crash the opening and while Tabitha is eaten by Zari's dragon, Neron uses the crowd's fear to open the portal. Constantine and Nate trick Neron into killing Nate, therefore breaking his word to Ray. Neron is ejected from Ray's body and killed by Constantine, who then closes the portal and revives Ray.

Cast and characters[edit]

Guest[edit]

Production[edit]

Development[edit]

At the Television Critics Association winter press tour in January 2018, The CW president Mark Pedowitz said he was "optimistic" and "confident" about Arrow and the other Arrowverse shows returning next season, but added that it was too soon to announce anything just yet.[46] On April 2, The CW renewed the series for its fourth season.[47] Marc Guggenheim stepped down as co-showrunner at the end of the third season, with co-showrunner Phil Klemmer originally set to emerge as sole showrunner for the fourth season. However, Keto Shimizu ultimately replaced Guggenheim as co-showrunner, to serve alongside Klemmer for this season. Guggenheim, the series' co-developer along with Klemmer, remained involved as an executive consultant.[48][49]

Writing[edit]

Phil Klemmer said that Mallus, the Big Bad of the third season, was "a sort of bellwether of bad guys to come in Season 4", which he said would go deep into the "world of fantastic myths and monsters",[50] without abandoning the time travel nature of the series.[51] He also said the season would further explore the Time Bureau, which was introduced in season three.[52] Klemmer added that at least one of the Legends would "break bad" in the season.[51] Tala Ashe, who joined the series as Zari Tomaz during the third season, said the fourth season would further explore the character's backstory, in addition to the prejudice and xenophobia experienced by her.[53] Courtney Ford, who recurred in the third season as Damien Darhk's daughter Nora, hoped the fourth season would explore what the character is without the influence of her father and Mallus.[54] Klemmer compared Neron, the season's Big Bad, to technology entrepreneur Elon Musk, calling him a "disruptor" in Hell, similar to how Musk affected transportation with Tesla electric cars.[55] Originally, the character of Hank Heywood was designed as the Big Bad of the season, however, when the writers saw Tom Wilson's performance and got to know him as a person, the character was rewritten as more sympathetic and likable. The original plan of turning Nate Heywood into a more sinister character because of his father was also abandoned in favor of a plotline where Hank is turned instead.[56]

Casting[edit]

Main cast members Brandon Routh, Caity Lotz, Amy Louise Pemberton, Dominic Purcell, Nick Zano, and Tala Ashe return from previous seasons as Ray Palmer / Atom, Sara Lance / White Canary, Gideon, Mick Rory / Heat Wave, Nate Heywood / Steel, and Zari Tomaz, respectively.[57][58] Maisie Richardson-Sellers, who played Amaya Jiwe / Vixen in seasons two and three, also returned as a series regular,[59] portraying a new character named Charlie, one of the season's magical fugitives.[60] While Sellers spoke with an American accent when playing Amaya,[61] she speaks with her native British accent when playing Charlie.[62] In July 2018, Ramona Young was added to the main cast as Alaska Yu,[22] though her character was ultimately named Mona Wu.[63] Matt Ryan, Jes Macallan and Courtney Ford, who recurred in the third season as John Constantine, Ava Sharpe and Nora Darhk respectively, were promoted to regular status for the fourth season.[64][65][66]

Keiynan Lonsdale, who portrayed Wally West / Kid Flash as a regular in the latter half of the third season, did not return in the same capacity for the fourth season.[67] He cited his reason being his desire to seek other acting opportunities.[68] This is the first season not to feature Arthur Darvill, who starred as Rip Hunter in the first two seasons, and recurred in the third season.[69] It is also the first not to feature Victor Garber and Franz Drameh, who starred as Martin Stein and Jefferson Jackson respectively, in the previous seasons.[70]

Filming[edit]

Production for the season began on July 5, 2018, in Vancouver,[71] and concluded on January 25, 2019.[72]

Release[edit]

Broadcast[edit]

On June 20, 2018, The CW released its fall schedule, revealing that the series would move from the 8:00 pm Monday time-slot to the 9:00 pm time-slot, to serve as the lead-out to Arrow. The season began airing in the United States on The CW on October 22, 2018.[73]

Marketing[edit]

The main cast of the season as well as Phil Klemmer attended San Diego Comic-Con on July 21, 2018, to promote the season.[74] On October 15, 2018, Routh released a mock political ad on his Twitter page, voiced by Zano. The ad jokingly claimed that Arrow, The Flash, and Supergirl were trying to keep attention away from Legends of Tomorrow, followed by many headlines as well as real and fake quotes praising the series.[75]

Music[edit]

On April 16, 2019, WaterTower Music released "I Surrender", a single from the episode "Séance and Sensibility" for free. The single was performed by actors Tala Ashe, Sachin Bhatt, Ramona Young, Brandon Routh, Courtney Ford, Caity Lotz, and Maisie Richardson-Sellers.[76]
