CW announces 'Legacies', a new 'Vampire Diaries' and 'Originals' spin-off
For Legacies, it's all about the next generation supernaturals who will attend The Salvatore School For The Young And Gifted alongside other witches, werewolves, and vampires
Supernatural fans may have had a difficult time bidding goodbye to 'The Vampire Diaries' and facing the same heartbreak with 'The Originals.' But we affirm the closing down of doors only mean the opening of another. The CW has picked up a brand new series called Legacies, letting the supernatural legacy of series creator Julie Plec, live on.
Call it an extension of former series, Legacies will center around Hope Mikaelson (Klaus and Hayley's magical daughter) as well as Alaric Saltzman's twins from The Vampire Diaries. The show has been picked up by the CW alongside the Roswell and Charmed reboots.
The remake of Charmed will be the fantasy drama about witches that ran from 1998-2006 on predecessor network WB. As for the Roswell, there will be two dramas for midseason: Roswell, New Mexico and In the Dark.
Roswell, New Mexico is a new take on the 1999-2002 sci-fi teen drama that aired first on the WB, then on UPN, and when the two smaller networks merged in 2006 to form the CW.
For Legacies, it's all about the next generation supernaturals who will attend The Salvatore School For The Young And Gifted alongside other witches, werewolves, and vampires.
The official synopsis of the show reads: "Legacies: A spinoff of The Vampire Diaries and The Originals from Julie Plec, this is the story of the next generation of supernatural beings at The Salvatore School for the Young and Gifted. Attending the school? Klaus and Hayley's daughter Hope Mikaelson, Alaric Saltzman's twins, Lizzie and Josie, and other young adults. Will these young witches, vampires and werewolves become the heroes they want to be—or the villains they were born to be?"
Sounding as juicy as it can get, many are looking forward to the show.
There's more good news to be added; Matt Davis will reprise his role as Alaric Saltzman, as will Danielle Rose Russell as Hope Mikaelson. Aria Shahghasemi is back as Landon and, who knows, there are high chances of other familiar faces for fans to look out for when the series drops on the CW.
