Brandon Routh & Courtney Ford Leaving 'Legends of Tomorrow' As Series Regulars

Brandon Routh and Courtney Ford are saying goodbye to DC’s Legends of Tomorrow!

The real life married couple, who also played a couple on the show, will be departing the series as regulars this upcoming season, Deadline reports.

Brandon and Courtney have been invaluable members of the Legends family,” executive producers Phil Klemmer, Grianne Godfree and Keto Shimizu told the site. “They have always brought a level passion and collaboration to their characters and to the show — both on and off the screen – that we deeply admire and for which we are eternally grateful.”

“Of course, when we have had main characters in the past whose journeys take them away from the Waverider, it’s never truly goodbye,” they added. “We love these characters and hope to check in with them in future seasons, to see how life off the ship has transformed them for better or worse.”

“I’m so grateful to have had the opportunity to bring the big-hearted and humorous Ray Palmer to life for our fans over the last 5 years, but unfortunately, his storyline is pointed in another direction,” Brandon said about leaving. “I’m saddened to see Ray’s journey end for now but wish my Legends family well.”

“Nora Darhk is very close to my heart. If it were my choice, I’d play her for years to come. But I understand that stories run their course, and I’m grateful for the time I did have bringing Nora to life on Legends of Tomorrow,” Courtney added.
