Thank you all. “Big thanks to the cast and crew and all the awesome relationships I’ve made over the years. Apparently cooling down later, he deleted the original post and amended it with a different ending. Dom.”
It’s not lost on me how very fortunate I am.” He ended the post with a call for actors to "him me up on DM" to discuss what he termed "Fake (c-words)." The actors work ethic and talent must give them the confidence to question authority. ….Much love to all. In his first post on Instagram announcing his departure (see below), Purcell noted, "The studio does not care.
Legends of Tomorrow was one of 12 CW series that received early renewals in February. According to sources, the studio has not started negotiations with the cast about next season yet. Reps for the CW and Warner Bros. TV, which produces DC's Legends of Tomorrow, had no comment on Purcell's statements.
It was renewed for a seventh season in February. DC's Legends of Tomorrow is heading into its sixth season on May 2. He claimed no intention of leaving the show before then, but that post has since been deleted. Purcell originally said a few days after that deal was announced that he would be leaving at the end of Season 7 when his contract was up.
Actor Dominic Purcell is "walking away" from his role as Mick Rory, aka Heatwave, on DC's Legends of Tomorrow. But true to his character's temperament, he left a fiery message in his wake.
