'Legacies' Season 2: It will be a whole new world for students and teachers of Salvatore School when show returns
We have a lot coming for us in season 2 -- new characters, a different setting and Hope in a whole new world
The spin-off of a spin-off, 'Legacies' is set to return for its second season on Thursday. When we last saw the folks at the Salvatore School, Hope had jumped into the Malivore pit (taking Ryan Clarke along with her) to prevent Malivore from returning -- since the entity was created by an ancient witch, werewolf, and vampire, Hope realized that her being a tribrid meant that she could stop it. Her jumping into the pit meant that the whole world forgot about her. Meanwhile, Lizzie and Josie have learned about the Merge -- the curse of the Gemini coven -- but not in detail.
When the show returns, we will see that the people in the Salvatore School have moved on. Landon will not remember Hope and from the promos, we see that he is now with Josie. Although, there's a part of him that realizes that there is something wrong. This means that something prompts him to look for answers. We don't see Rafael in any of the trailers and this is presumably because he'd have needed Hope to turn him back, and with Hope gone, he is stuck in his wolf form. Alaric Saltzman will no longer be the Headmaster of the Salvatore School due to what happened in the last season and we will see him struggling with this new part of his life.
Josie and Lizzie are in a better place in Season 2 and the sisters would be trying to figure out a way out of the Merge. They also have access to the Ascendant (the key to the prison world their uncle, Kai Parker, is in) and they would try to learn more about that. In the latest promo, we are given a glimpse of Hope and Clarke in the prison world. Creator Julie Plec had said she wanted to recreate the plot that involved Damon and Bonnie stuck together in the prison world, so this could mean that Clarke and Hope learn more about each other as well as understand where the other comes from.
The show will take a different turn this season in that we will see more of Mystic Falls and the human characters. There is a new sheriff in town who could be Alaric's love interest. Her son and daughter also supposedly both develop a crush on Hope. Alaric possibly takes up his old position as a history teacher in Mystic Falls High, and this could possibly cause some tension in his personal life. There will also be a very Damon Salvatoresque vampire as well as a new Headmaster for the Salvatore School joining the cast.
'Legacies' Season 2 premieres on The CW on October 10.
