Another superhero drama is coming to Sky1, in form of 'DC's Legends of Tomorrow'.

Due to land on Sky next year, the series takes place in the same DC Comics universe as Sky's other hits 'The Flash' and 'Arrow'.

Sky also recently started showing 'Supergirl'. Its first episode had a consolidated audience of 1.64 million, which is the largest for a series launch on Sky1 since 2013. It continues to draw more than a million viewers a week.

'DC's Legends of Tomorrow' stars Arthur Davill as time-travelling rogue Rip Hunter, who is tasked with putting together a group of heroes and villains to combat the threat of Vandal Savage.

It also features turns from Victor Garber ('The Flash', 'Alias'), Brandon Routh ('Arrow', 'Superman Returns'), Caity Lotz ('Arrow'), and Ciara Renee ('The Flash') and brings together a panoply of DC characters, including Firestorm, The Atom, White Canary, Hawkgirl, Captain Cold and Heatwave.

"Hot on the heels of the amazing success of 'Supergirl', I'm really pleased to announce that another exciting comic-book drama is coming to the channel," said Adam MacDonald, director of Sky1.

"From the team behind our three best-loved superhero shows and with a great high-profile cast, there's real pedigree behind 'DC's Legends of Tomorrow'. And it's set in the same world as 'The Flash' and 'Arrow', too, so it couldn't be more suited to Sky1. Our customers are going to love it."
