The fan favorite Flash villain joins ‘Legends of Tomorrow,’ starting October 10th.

Gorilla Grodd, fan favorite villain of The Flash, will be appearing in the upcoming third season of Legends of Tomorrow. The news was broken at the the Television Critics Association press tour, during the show’s panel.

At the panel, Phil Klemmer, executive producer of Legends of Tomorrow, said “You’re jumping into a new movie every week and kind of starting from scratch.”

While the first season garnered decidedly mixed reviews, the second season was viewed much more favorably. Even before the announcement of the involvement of the hyper-intelligent telepathic gorilla, expectations for the third season were high. Will you be tuning in?

Legends of Tomorrow season 3 begins Tuesday, October 10th.
