With just four episodes, 'Legacies' seems to have made quite an impression on its fans. The CW show is taking a break this week for Thanksgiving, with no new episodes airing this Thursday. The show will resume its usual routine next Thursday onward and will air a fresh new episode November 29 called 'Malivore'. While the wait may not appear too long, fans seem to be inconsolable about the skip. 



 

"There I was today re-watching past episodes getting excited for Thursday night (!!) when it dawned on me that this week is Thanksgiving.. so no 'Legacies'. Who else doesn't know how they're going to make it 10 more days??" lamented a fan on Reddit. Another, echoing similar emotions, said: "Damn, I'm so disappointed now. I need my fix, man. Guess I'll just re-watch episodes 1-4."

The wait for each episode is so excruciating to some they cannot wait for the show to end - just so they can watch it at one go. "I want to time-travel to a future where 'Legacies' has already ended so that I'd just binge-watch it. I've binged watched TVD [The Vampire Diaries] and TO [The Originals], so the fact that now I'm watching 'Legacies' as it airs is frustrating me. And hopefully, that future is not 1-2 years from now. This show should thrive," wrote a fan.

So far, 'Legacies' has undoubtedly hit the nail on the head with its entertaining storylines and callbacks to its predecessors. A spin-off of 'The Originals' and 'The Vampire Diaries', it has clearly become very popular among the fans.

The show's viewership has also been more or less consistent through the last couple of weeks after its premiere. 'This Is the Part Where You Run' got 1.12 million views while the last episode, 'Hope Is Not The Goal' got 1.8 million views. While there is no confirmation about a renewal, this enthusiasm could easily translate into one - fandoms can make or break shows.

While most shows can score ratings, it takes a special one to win over a cult fan following that 'The Originals' and 'The Vampire Diaries' have. Both shows had their own unique plotlines and took on the supernatural, but always found ways to connect with each other.

'Legacies' is definitely taking inspiration from that - it is more relatable and younger when compared to the 'The Vampire Diaries' and 'The Originals' and has its own perspective, yet, at the same time, has elements connecting to them and characters that resemble the ones in the previous shows. 

'Legacies' airs every Thursday 9/8c on CW.
