DC’s Legends of Tomorrow is losing another one of its regular cast members. Dominic Purcell announced that he is leaving the superhero series after its upcoming sixth season, which debuts next month. His first announcement was a strong one, but he backed up a bit and later said he will periodically return during season seven. The series was renewed for a seventh season in February.
He said the following in his initial message, per ET Online:
“Deal isn’t done. I have no interest. What ever cash they throw on the corporate level. I’m walking away from @cw_legendsoftomorrow. It’s been a total pleasure and a humbling experience bringing @dccomics iconic character #heatwave (aka) MICK RORY to life. I smashed this character— not an actor in the world could have done better. FACT… Time to move on and see how s**t unfolds.”
After his message caused a reaction, he returned to social media to settle things down, per Deadline:
“God would everyone chill the f**k out. Why are people losing their mind because I’m leaving the show. Yes my tone was heavy straight to the point…It’s who I am. Do I have a beef with the studio at @warnerbrostv NO!”
What do you think? Are you a fan of the DC’s Legends of Tomorrow TV series on The CW? Are you shocked by Purcell’s exit?
