The CW’s Legends of Tomorrow has expanded the universe of the series for season two to include new good guys and bad guys who’ll be a part of the comic book-inspired sci-fi action show. Per Warner Bros. Television’s official announcement, Justice Society of America members who’ve yet to be cast will be joining Rex Tyler aka Hourman (Patrick J. Adams) in season two. Adams appeared in the season one finale and in season two Obsidian, Stargirl, and Dr. Mid-Nite will be putting in appearances.

Legends of Tomorrow‘s heroes will be facing off against a very familiar group of characters who make up the Legion of Doom. Malcolm Merlyn (John Barrowman), Damien Darhk (Neal McDonough), the Reverse-Flash (Matt Letscher), and Captain Cold (Wentworth Miller) are confirmed for the new season debuting on October 13, 2016. Letscher played Reverse-Flash/Eobard Thawne on The Flash and will now be a series regular on Legends of Tomorrow. Miller and Barrowman will be appearing in multiple episodes, and McDonough signed on in a recurring role.

“For season two of Legends, we decided that the perfect antagonist for TV’s first-ever team of Super Heroes would be TV’s first-ever team of Super-Villains, recruited from the ranks of Arrow and The Flash’s deadliest adversaries. Being huge fans of the Challenge of the Superfriends, we’ve come to call this group our ‘Legion of Doom,’” said executive producer Marc Guggenheim.
