The Waverider crew are back for more super hero time-travel action, with DC's Legends of Tomorrow season 6 - read on to find out how to stream the new series online from anywhere
Initially dismissed by many comic book fans thanks to its lineup of B-tier heroes and dramedy style, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow has nevertheless gone to carve out an identity and fanbase of its own, and is now one of the longest running superhero shows on air.
Having started life as a pretty vanilla comic book caper, over the years its gone on to morph into a playful, self-aware series that now owes as much to Rick and Morty as it does to its DC roots.
The new season is set to be even more freewheeling, with the promise of upcoming Disney princess-inspired episode, which will be entirely animated and a TV talent show pastiche.
