We knew that they would be dealing with aliens in Season 6 of DC’s Legends of Tomorrow. Now it looks like they’ll have an expert on the subject joining the Waverider crew. It was announced at DC FanDome today that Lisseth Chavez (Chicago PD) would be joining the cast as a series regular.
Chavez will play Esperanza “Spooner” Cruz. Here is the character description released by Warner Bros. TV: “Tough and self-sufficient, Spooner Cruz lives off the grid, devising ingenious tech for the detection of — and defense against — space aliens. And while some might call her paranoid, she calls it being prepared. A survivor. of a childhood alien encounter, Spooner now believes she has the ability to communicate telepathically with aliens — making her the perfect recruit for Waverider captains Sara Lance, Ava Sharpe and the Legends who, in season six, will be hunting down extraterrestrials who have been displaced throughout history.”
We now also know that the history aspect of the series will still be a part of this upcoming season. This time it will be aliens who will be scattered across time, not historical figures. It’s hard to have Legends without time travel, right?
DC’s Legends of Tomorrow returns to The CW some time in 2021. If anything changes, we’ll let you know.
