Last month during The CW Upfront, new descriptions for upcoming seasons were released from the network, including Legends of Tomorrow. While pretty much all the main characters were referenced in the new logline, one character was left out and that was Maisie Richardson-Sellers’ Amaya Jiwe a.k.a. Vixen.
Amaya joined the Waverider in the second season after the JSA leader Hourman (Patrick J. Adams) was murdered by the Reverse-Flash (Matt Letscher). In Entertainment Weekly’s latest edition of Spoiler Room, a fan asked the EW reporter Natalie Abrams if Vixen would be back for Legends Of Tomorrow Season 3. Despite not being mentioned in the description, EW confirmed that Richardson-Sellers will be back as a full time cast member for the third season.
The show recently announced that Tala Ashe (Smash) had been added to the cast as the DC Comics character Zari Adrianna Tomaz. In the comics, she is better known as the superhero Isis. This version of Adrianna is a Muslim-American woman who comes from 2030 and is described as a “gray hat hacktivist” who will join the team in the new season.
Season 3 of Legends of Tomorrow will premiere on Tuesday, October 10 at 9/8c on The CW.
