The CW’s Legends of Tomorrow has added two new characters to the series’ upcoming fourth season. Ramona Young (Blockers, Santa Clarita Diet) has joined the cast in the series regular role of Alaska Yu. Tom Wilson, best known for playing Biff Tannen in the Back to the Future films, will play the recurring role of Nate’s father.

Details on the new cast members were announced during the show’s panel at the 2018 San Diego Comic Con:

  • Ramona Young joins the cast in the series regular role of Alaska Yu. A typical twentysomething easily swept up by romantic notions and fantasy novels, she’s something of an expert in the world of the magical creatures that the Legends encounter in season four. In the company of the Legends, she soon learns to get her head out of the clouds to become a kickass superhero.
  • Tom Wilson will recur as Nate’s (Nick Zano) father, Hank Heywood. With a lifetime in the military and Dept. of Defense, Hank is part of a long line of Heywoods to serve the country. Charming and charismatic, he’s left big shoes for Nate to fill — and it doesn’t help that Nate can’t tell him he’s secretly a Legend!

The cast of season four includes Caity Lotz as Sara Lance, Brandon Routh as Ray Palmer, Dominic Purcell as Mick Rory, Maisie Richardson-Sellers as Amaya, Tala Ashe as Zari, and Nick Zano as Nate Heywood. Amy Louise Pemberton provides the voice of Gideon. Matt Ryan is back as John Constantine, Jes Macallan plays Ava Sharpe, and Courtney Ford returns as Nora Darhk.

Season four is set to premiere on Monday, October 22, 2018 at 9pm ET/PT. The series is executive produced by Greg Berlani, Phil Klemmer, Keto Shimizu, and Sarah Schechter.
