LEGENDS OF TOMORROW: Victor Garber To Depart DC TV Series During Season 3

LEGENDS OF TOMORROW: Victor Garber To Depart DC TV Series During Season 3

Disappointing news for Legends of Tomorrow fans today as it's been revealed that Victor Garber (Martin Stein) is set to leave The CW series during the show's third season. Hit the jump for further details.

Legends of Tomorrow returned to The CW last night but big changes are coming to the show very soon. Deadline reveals that Victor Garber has decided to depart the show during its third season so he can return to Broadway for the Hello, Dolly! revival which kicks off on January 20th. He'll be taking over a role currently filled by David Hyde Pierce of Frasier fame and will be joined by Bernadette Peters.

The DC TV show shoots in Vancouver and seeing as the actor will appear in this show six days a week, appearing in the series as Martin Stein is physically impossible. What does this mean for Firestorm? We don't know but there's no mention of Franz Drameh (Jax) deciding to leave the show at the same time. 

However, the trade reveals that Garber's exit from Legends of Tomorrow has been planned for some time and that he'll be leaving at some point in the third season. There are no plans in place for him to return in future episodes but it's feasible he could return for a guest appearance somewhere down the line. How do you guys feel about this news?
