While this is certainly more of a feature than a bug, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow on The CW has seen a lot of cast rotation over its five seasons (a sixth premiering on May 2), with Caity Lotz’s Sara Lance and Dominic Purcell’s Mick Rory being the only members of the pilot’s cast who are always there – not to mention stalwart AI navigator Gideon, played by Amy Louise Pemberton both in voice and on the rare occasions she has a physical body. Sadly, at the end of the show’s sixth season, it looks like another member of the show’s crew will descend from the Waverider … but there’s a drama here that needs to be addressed.

We’re referring to Purcell, whose Mick Rory has been a bit odd on the show for the past few years given how often his storylines involve not wanting to go on an adventure so that you can stay in your bedroom and get drunk (again, does not present a bug). On Saturday morning, Purcell posted a message on Instagram saying he would quit the show after season six, but that’s not all he said! The post has since been deleted, but it did mention that “the studio” (Warner Bros., or at least its TV branch) “didn’t care,” and he asked his future cast members to keep an eye out. newcomers so as not to get screwed by the studio. He also added that all curious actors should ask him to talk about “fake [c-words]. »

As this message began to circulate, Purcell removed it and replaced it with an almost identical one that replaced all colored complaints about the studio with cool stuff about the “great relationships” he has made with the cast and crew. He acknowledged the previous post, saying it was “heavy” and “straight to the point” because that’s what it is, but he also said he didn’t have “beef” with it. the studio and was just “frustrated and bored.” Because he was “locked up in Vancouver for nine months” so they could film during the pandemic. Finally, he also noted that he was not really leaving because he was still under contract until season seven, that he had a “great relationship” with the people who run the show and that he would continue to do so. appear “periodically”.

Then he deleted this post and replaced it with a completely different one in which he joked about how much attention his over-the-top comments get and how much media it is. DC’s Legends of Tomorrow had gotten for years. Then – and you won’t believe it –he deleted this message and hasn’t said anything else since. Deadline this that The CW and WBTV have not posted any comments, but DeadlineThe sources say negotiations with the cast for next season haven’t even started yet, so it’s unclear if Purcell is actually going to leave or if (as he said) he’s just coming off the hook.
