SPOILER ALERT: The story includes details about the Season 7 finale of the CW’s Legends Of Tomorrow.
The Season 7 finale of Legends of Tomorrow on The CW saw the exit of a longtime cast member. Of course, the series has not yet been renewed for next season, so the departure may not carry the usual pain of losing a beloved TV friend.
Legends of Tomorrow has previously lost cast members, so the series knows how to say goodbye.
Team member Nick Zano, aka Nate Hewyood (“Steel”) is the departing team member. He will not be back as a series regular even if the show gets a Season 8 from The CW. It was a good ride for Zano, who joined in Season 2 and appeared in 94 episodes.
TV Line reported Zano ran through a World War I combat field to save his friend Gwyn’s love, Alun. But that rescue came with a price as the mustard gas eroded his steel exterior.
That meant he had no superpower, and thus returned to the totem to live with girlfriend Zari.
“It’s with a grateful, appreciative, full heart I say goodbye to my Legends family…,” Zano wrote Thursday morning in a heartfelt message to fans on Instagram next to photos of him on the set. “It’s been the absolute most insane, fulfilling experiences I’ve ever had BUT the time has come for Nate/Steel to say goodbye to the greatest, most loyal, most ride or die, fan base…”
