  • Just like last season there were two "Big Bads". Astra was the "Big Bad" at the beginning of this season, but she was replaced mid-season by Atropos and Lachesis. That is similar to how the "Fugitives" were the "Big Bads" at the beginning of last season, but they were replaced mid-season by Neron.
  • Beginning with "Zari, Not Zari", all episodes were moved from their original airdates due to the COVID-19 pandemic.[1] However, all 15 episodes had finished filming before the pandemic began.[2][3]
  • The new opening sequence originally showed Ava, Sara, Constantine, Charlie, Mick, Ray, Zari Tarazi, and Nora until "Zari, Not Zari" where the second version featured Gideon replacing Ray in addition to removing Nora.
  • This is the second shortest season of DC's Legends of Tomorrow with a total of 15 episodes, tied with Season 6.
  • The promotional material parodies the film Once Upon a Time in Hollywood with each Legend dressed in outfits they wore in previous episodes.
