Keiynan Lonsdale explains his Arrowverse exit
Lonsdale, who jumped from The Flash to Legends of Tomorrow last season, says he won't be back full-time on either series next year. “I’ve changed a lot in the past year (as you’ve probably noticed lol), and for infinite reasons my perspective on life & what I want from it now is just completely different,” he explained on Instagram. “Because of that, my heart told me it was the right time to continue my journey on an unknown path, and I’m so damn grateful to both shows for honouring & respecting that with me.”

Legends of Tomorrow boss on Young Obama storyline: "This is totallygratuitous, us sending a little ‘love letter’ to the ex-president"
Showrunner Phil Klemmer says of Tuesday's episode, in which a giant evil gorilla tried to kill a young Barack Obama: “There’s a certain point where you realize, ‘This scene doesn’t need to be in the show. This is totally gratuitous, us sending a little ‘love letter’ to the ex-president.' But when I rewatched the episode (Tuesday) night, I was like, ‘Thank God we did keep in that totally superfluous love letter to the ex-president. And thank God we found a performer in Vancouver (Lovell Adams-Gray) who played such a convincing Young Barack Obama!”

CW renews 10 shows, including Riverdale, Jane the Virgin, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend and Dynasty
Black Lightning, Arrow, The Flash, DC's Legends of Tomorrow, Supernatural and Supergirl will also be back next season. CW shows yet to be renewed include The 100, iZombie, Life Sentence and Valor. The most baffling renewal is Dynasty. "Midway through its freshman run, Dynasty recently slipped to an almost mythical 0.1 demo rating, though Nicollette Sheridan’s debut as Alexis seems to have resuscitated the numbers, some," as Matt Webb Mitovich points out. UPDATE: Rachel Bloom tweets Season 4 will be Crazy Ex-Girlfriend's "final season."

DC's Legends of Tomorrow has done something radical with bisexual character John Constantine
"For the show to openly explore his attraction to both men and women onscreen was a big deal given how the character had previously been portrayed," Peter Nagy says of Matt Ryan's character. "Constantine’s bisexuality was first alluded to in John Smith’s 1992 issue Hellblazer: Counting to Ten and then touched on periodically in subsequent comics. But other adaptations—including the 2005 Hollywood film Constantine and the short-lived NBC television series by the same name (starring Ryan)—either erased or ignored the character’s sexual history. Fans who were frustrated by this consistent 'straight-washing' may have felt some relief when the Legends executive producer Phil Klemmer promised his show wouldn’t repeat this mistake."

DC’s Legends of Tomorrow gets John Noble to play himself
“We figured out a very Legends-like way to actually get John Noble the actor into the show,” executive producer Marc Guggenheim tells EW of the Fringe alum. “We’re very excited that John Noble will be making a live action appearance on Legends. He’s been voicing our third season’s big bad, Mallus, but he won’t be appearing as the time demon. He’ll actually be appearing as himself. It makes total sense in a Legends-y kind of way.”

Greg Berlanti on former Arrowverse showrunner Andrew Kreisberg: “I was shocked, I was disappointed, I was confused”
Berlanti, who’s been juggling 10 shows across his Berlanti Productions, says he first learned of the sexual harassment allegations against Kreisberg one week before they were published in Variety. Berlanti says he did know that Kreisberg had anger management issues, but not about the sexual harassment complaints. “I was shocked, I was disappointed, I was confused,” Berlanti tells Variety. “But my overwhelming desire then and to this moment was how can I fix this, how can I help people that may have been hurt in any way. That is still the predominant feeling I have about all of it. So that supersedes all of the other feelings and emotions.”
