DC’s Legends Of Tomorrow Season 6 Poster Showcases 90s Vibes

DC’s Legends of Tomorrow has just released a new poster teasing the 90s vibes of the upcoming season. Long considered the black sheep of the CW’s Arrowverse, the fan-favorite is known for not taking itself quite as seriously as the other superhero dramas on the network. They are clearly continuing that trend for season 6.

DC’s Legends of Tomorrow started off as a bit more ambitious of a series, taking a lot of heroes from various Arrowverse series and making a time-traveling team capable of stopping threats the individual heroes could not handle alone. The show received middling reviews for its freshman season, but oddly around the middle of season 2, it seemed to hit its stride. Amidst a number of a new cast members and a much less serious story, the writers found themselves having a bit more fun with the characters and poking fun at the world and the characters themselves. Now the series is a fan favorite for its whimsical takes on pop-culture, the super-hero medium, and their wacky season finales, one of which included all of the heroes joining their minds and, purely by accident, becoming a giant Beebo (an Arrowverse Furby) capable of taking down the big bad of the season.

As reported by Den of Geek, the poster for season 6 of DC’s Legends of Tomorrow showcases the 90s vibes the series is going for in the premiere. Designed to look like an old-school VHS tape cover, the “box art” has the main cast lined up ready for action beneath a pair of spaceships in the sky (one of which is the Legend’s ship, the Waverider), with a large alien head positioned between the two ships. With season 5 ending with the abduction of Sara Lance, fans are guessing the other ship belongs to the aliens that took Sara, same with the alien head in the poster. Check it out below:

Based on the design, it also looks like the whole cast from season 5 will be returning in the new season, which is not always a given for the series. Featured on the posters are Caity Lotz, Jes Macallan, Matt Ryan, Nick Zano, Tala Ashe, and Dominic Purcell, plus Adam Tsekhman, Olivia Swann, Shayan Sobhian and Lissith Chavez as new regular cast members. Rounding out the eccentric poster is the tag-line of “Space. Oddity.,” which appears to be a subtle David Bowie reference, especially when combined with the title of the premiere episode, “Ground Control to Sara Lance.”

Making it to season 6 is quite an accomplishment for a show like DC’s Legends of Tomorrow. Not taking themselves seriously is the key. This poster perfectly encapsulates everything the series has done right over the years, from the tone of the tagline, “Space. Oddity.,” to the beat-up and cheap-looking nature of the VHS box itself. Every year, the show takes its fans on an exciting trip through time and space, and while it does not always make sense, it frankly does not have to. The series delivers on fun, jokes, and memorable stories, and it seems like season 6 taking on aliens and the 90s will be no different.
