The much-awaited Arrow and The Flash spinoff series Legends of Tomorrow finally premieres this week and fans could not be more excited. Legends is set to further expand the DC's TV Universe – and viewers who don't necessarily follow Arrow or The Flash, need not worry about losing the plot as there will be enough time spent on the backstory of characters.

"I don't think you need to watch Arrow and Flash to appreciate what it is Legends has to offer," actor Wentworth Miller (who plays the supervillain/anithero Captain Cold) told IGN. "The beauty of this show – and they do this on Flash, and they did this on Arrow – is that we do spend time on character. We do spend time on backstory. We do take a moment in between the sci-fi special effects to tell you who these people are, so that when something happens to them, you actually care."

That being said, you can expect lots of crossovers, with Arrow and The Flash set to appear on the show. Executive producer Phil Klemmer recently confirmed that older as well as younger versions of Arrow and Flash will feature in Legends of Tomorrow.

DC's Legends of Tomorrow premieres on Thursday, 21 January on The CW. Check out the premiere episode synopsis below:
