DC’s Legends of Tomorrow is back from their winter hiatus on Monday, and the team of superheroes will be joined by a new member, John Constantine. Constantine is a figure in DC Comics, as “an alienated, chain-smoking, bisexual, world-weary demonologist,” and will have an arc on Legends before moving to his own digital animated show on the CW Seed. Constantine will join Sara Lance (aka White Canary), the bisexual leader of the time-traveling team as they fight this season’s big bad. DC’s Legends of Tomorrow: Monday, 8pm on The CW.

Sundance Now’s first streaming series, This Close, debuts on Wednesday. The new dramedy hails from co-creators, actors, and best friends Shoshanna Stern and Josh Feldman. Both creators are deaf, and Feldman is gay, and their characters within the show reflect these facets of their identity. This Close explores the codependent friendship between their two characters, their struggles at work and different romantic entanglements. A show having a gay deaf lead is a huge and overdue step in representation, and This Close will break new barriers with these characters. This Close: Wednesday on Sundance Now.
