The team took out Vandal Savage in the season 1 finale, so now what’s the plan in Season 2?
The finale ended with the arrival of Patrick J Adams (Suits) as Rex Tyler aka Hourman and the introduction of the Justice Society of America.
Executive producer Marc Guggenheim has revealed that, the new mission is more about fulfilling a needed role in the universe rather than taking on any one villain specifically and confirmed it leads directly out of the events of the season one finale.
“In many ways, the season finale of season 1 set up the new mission statement for season 2,” Guggenheim says. “Like Rip says at the end of the season finale, there basically are no more Time Masters. We basically have to be the Time Masters.”
With the departure of Hawkman & Hawkgirl, plus the death of Captain Cold, the team is going to need some additional bodies to fill the Waverider. Luckily, there doesn’t seem to be a shortage of those!
They will have the services of Maise Richardson-Sellers, who is joining the show as Vixen, as well as Nick Zano, who fills the role of Justice Society of America member Citizen Steel. With the reveal of Rex Tyler’s Hourman last season, the team should have enough firepower to handle whatever comes their way.
