Brandon Routh & Courtney Ford To Depart 'DC's Legends Of Tomorrow'

Brandon Routh, who plays Ray Palmer/Atom, and Courtney Fort, who portrays Nora Darhk are saying good-bye to DC’s Legends Of Tomorrow during the superhero team-up drama’s upcoming fifth season.

“Brandon and Courtney have been invaluable members of the Legends family,” series executive producers Phil Klemmer, Grianne Godfree and Keto Shimizu said in a statement to sources. “They have always brought a level passion and collaboration to their characters and to the show — both on and off the screen – that we deeply admire and for which we are eternally grateful.”

Routh was among the core group of recurring actors from Arrow and has been a series regular from the start. Routh’s wife, Ford, joined Legends of Tomorrow as a recurring in Season 3 and was promoted to a regular at the beginning of Season 4. Mirroring real life, Routh and Ford’s characters are romantically liked on the show.

“As one of the founding Legends of Tomorrow, Brandon is extremely beloved by the fans and everyone on the show.,” Klemmer, Godfree and Shimizu said.

Both of the character's exit comes from a creative decision to wrap up their storyline. But as is the case with most Legends, the producers are leaving the door open for Ray and Nora to pop back in for guest appearances.

“Of course, when we have had main characters in the past whose journeys take them away from the Waverider, it’s never truly goodbye,” Klemmer, Godfree and Shimizu said. “We love these characters and hope to check in with them in future seasons, to see how life off the ship has transformed them for better or worse.”

Routh and Ford are expected to film their final episode in October. It is unclear yet when it will air during Legends of Tomorrow‘s Season 5 run, slated to start in January.

I'm afraid you are right. I also stopped tuning in to this show a couple seasons ago. Just stick a fork in it , its done. I do hope Brandon and Court move on to better projects.

Might as well cancel it now.

That's a shame, Brandon Routh was one of the few good things that show had and I always liked Courtney Ford, she's cute. I stopped watching this series a while back and now there's less of an incentive for me to go back.

Normally I'd agree, especially with Legends consistently being the poorest performer, ratings wise, but main characters are leaving this turkey all the time, and it still keeps coming back. You'd think the producer was using it for some kind of counter-culture propaganda or something.

Main characters sudenly leaving their tv show is an early sign of cancellation.
