News that the show would not return for an eighth season was broken by the LoTWritersRoom official Twitter on Friday, sharing an open letter to fans that reads, "Alright, sit down. 

This is gonna hurt." It continues, "We're cancelled. This has been the journey of a lifetime for all of us. The little show that wasn't supposed to be,  

, grew into the show that could be anything it wanted... We will desperately miss creating this show, but most of all we will miss getting to make it together and sharing it with you." 

The letter concludes, "Legends Never Die!" and is signed, "The Legends Writers' Room." The image of the letter is accompanied by the text of the tweet, 

reading, "Thank you for being the greatest fans and sticking with us for seven seasons \ Once a Legend, always a Legend." 

Legends of Tomorrow premiered in early 2016 as a spinoff series featuring characters from both Arrow and The Flash and adding several new ones.  

"Knocked Down, Knocked Up," which was notable for finally introducing the DC character Michael Jon Carter/Booster Gold to the Arrowverse, with Scrubs alum Donald Faison stepping into the role. 

With a number of cliffhangers in its Season 7 finale and a devoted fan base, DC's Legends of Tomorrow is sure to be missed by many superhero fans.
