Dominic Purcell Is Leaving The CW's 'Legends of Tomorrow,' Says 'Studio Does Not Care'

Dominic Purcell has announced that he is leaving the cast of The CW’s series DC’s Legends of Tomorrow.

The sixth season of the series is premiering in a couple of weeks and the show already has been renewed for a seventh season.

“Deal isn’t done. I have no interest. What ever cash they throw on the corporate level. I’m 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,” Dominic wrote in his post.

“Time to move on and see how shit unfolds. Caity Lotz, Nick Zano: look after the kids coming through,” he added.

There was also a portion of his Instagram account that was eventually deleted.

Variety reports that Dominic originally had this line in the post: “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.”

Now, the post ends with this line: “Big thanks to cast and crew and all the awesome relationships I’ve made over the years. Thank you all. Dom.”

Last year, Dominic was spotted on the beach with his on-again girlfriend.

UPDATE: Dominic later deleted his entire post and then uploaded the below message:

“WHY SO SERIOUS. 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣……. MY last post I needed a laugh. It was a joke and The press went nuts and yes I will always fuck with the press it’s fun watching them be click-bated– Truth is yes I am leaving @cw_legendsoftomorrow but will come back periodically, it’s a handshake deal with my boss Phil Klemmer. I don’t have a beef with studio 😂😂😂🤣 @warnerbrostv. I don’t have a beef with anyone except myself haha. …Shit woke up this morning like I’d caused mass #riots …. But what a genius negotiation move. I am loved.”

That message was then deleted as well and the below post was put up:

“AND NO BODY HAS FORCED ME TO MAKE THIS STATEMENT….God would everyone chill the fuck out. Why are people losing their mind because I’m leaving the show. Yes my tone was heavy straight to the point. I use cus words cause I do and I’m Australian🤣It’s who I am. Do I have a beef with the studio at @warnerbrostv no. Yes I said they don’t care. That’s not correct of course they do— just me being emotional and over stuff. We work we all work in a big machine. Sometimes shit happens. It’s life. …….. here are the facts. I am leaving @cw_legendsoftomorrow on a full time basis. I will come back periodically with a handshake deal with my boss Phil Klemmer. I have and always have had a tremendous relationship with the Bosses and the studio @warnerbrostv Peter Roth and I had a tremendous working relationship I was super sad when he retired. My wording was aggressive in tone because sometimes I get frustrated and annoyed it’s been a long long heavy year locked up in #Vancouver for 9 months without going home. Who doesn’t and who hasn’t lashed out. Im fuckin human. So for god sake chill on. “Dominic Purcell and the studio are beefing” total bullshit. It’s simply not true. I haven’t quit. My contract is up. 6 years not 7. I’ve never quit on a contract and never would. So to all the fans you will see me again next year on season 7 periodically. I hope this has clarified stuff. I must admit I was freaked the fuck out on how much press I got or this got. But hey @cw_legendsoftomorrow hasn’t ever got as much press ever stoked!! cheers 🤣🤣🤣Apologizes for the ridiculous photo. It’s Mick trying to smile.”
