Dominic Purcell Very Publicly Quits The CW’s “Legends of Tomorrow”

We’ve got some bad news for you fans of “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow.” It would appear that series star Dominic Purcell has no plans to return to The CW’s show. In a now edited Instagram post, the “Blade: Trinity” actor revealed that he has “no interest” in renewing his contract.

Purcell plays Mick Rory, aka Heat Wave, brother of Lenard Snart, aka Captain Cold, played by Wentworth Miller. Oddly enough, Miller and Purcell played brothers in FOX’s “Prison Break.”

Purcell’s Instagram post caption, which has now been edited, read:


Deal isn’t done. I have no interest. What ever cash they throw on the corporate level. Im walking away from @cw_legendsoftomorrow. It’s been a total pleasure and a humbling experience bringing @dccomics iconic character #heatwave (aka) MICK RORY to life. I smashed this character— not an actor in the world could have done better. FACT…. Such a funny cunt 🤣🤣🤣……..Time to move on and see how shit unfolds. @caitylotz @nickzano look after the kids coming through. Big thanks to cast and crew and all the awesome relationships I’ve made over the years. Thank you all. Dom.”


The deleted portion read: “The studio does not care. The actors work ethic and talent must give them the confidence to question authority. ….Much love to all. It’s not lost on me how very fortunate I am.”

As of this writing, The CW has not commented on the situation. We’ll let you know what we hear.

Season 6 of “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow” premieres on May 6th, 2021 only on The CW.
