'Legacies' off to a great start as CW orders more scripts even before the show's debut
It is the second spin-off in 'the Vampire Diaries' franchise and a direct sequel to 'The Originals'.
The latest installment in the 'Vampire Diaries' franchise, 'Legacies' is about to make a debut on The CW. The CW has made an important decision about 'Legacies' future before the series could even air. Already sensing the pulse of the audience, the network has ordered more scripts for the series' freshman season, reports Cinemablend.
As per TV line, the channel has ordered for three more scripts, that brings the total script order to 16. This is a positive move for the show as it is set to premiere later this month. It is the second spinoff in 'the Vampire Diaries' franchise and a direct sequel to 'The Originals'. The series will draw from both the series before it. 'Legacies follows the life of the daughter of Klaus, played by Joseph Morgan and Hayley, played by Phoebe Tonkin from 'The Vampire Diaries'. Klaus and Hayley were the lead characters in 'The Originals' and the series ended in 2018. 'Legacies' will take it from the end of 'The Originals', and will show the duo's daughter Hope attending the Salvatore School for the young and Gifted. From 'The Vampire Diaries' we will see Alaric Saltzman, played by Matthew Davis as the headmaster of the school and he will provide guidance to Hope. Alaric's twin daughters, Josie, played by Kaylee Bryant and Lizzie, played by Jenny Boyd will also be seen attending the school.
The twins' mother, Caroline will be absent when the series begins. The show has a new character in the form of the school's guidance counselor, Emma, played by 'Once Upon a Time's' Karen David. There is a lot anticipated from the series, and if things work out, The CW might order a few more episodes.
The spin-off of 'The Vampire Diaries', 'Legacies' is set to premiere on October 25, The CW.
