After the abrupt ending of season 2 of Legacies, fans have been eagerly awaiting the news for “Legacies Season 3”. It is time to rejoice because season 3 of the series has been confirmed.
The series is a spinoff of “The Originals”. The show features characters from both “The Originals” and its predecessor “The Vampire Diaries”. The show debuted on 25th October 2018 in The CW. The second season aired on 10th October 2019 and then it got renewed for a third run.
Release Date of the “Legacies Season 3”
The show has been renewed for a third season in January 2020. The CW president Mark Pedowitz has commented that the season will air next year due to the delays imposed by the pandemic.
He said that show will start its new season in January 2021, when we will launch our regular primetime schedule. Although there is no guarantee owing to the current situation.
Plec has also commented on the final episode which aired before the delay, pointing out that it works well as an accidental season two finale. He said they have completed through episode 216 for now. According to him, it was actually a fun accidental season finale with a good cliffhanger. It will be temporarily satisfying until they are able to go back and finish the rest.
The Possible Plot of the Season
The show follows Hope Mikaelson, the daughter of Klaus Mikaelson and Hayley Marshall. She is the descendant of some of the most powerful vampire, werewolf, and witch bloodlines. The show is set two years after the events of “The Originals”. 17-year-old Hope attends the Salvatore School for the Young and Gifted which provides a haven for supernatural beings to learn to control their abilities and impulses.
Although it is too early to say anything about the third season’s plot we won’t be surprised if more cast members from “The Vampire Diaries” and “The Originals” pop up in future episodes.
There’s is a big question mark hanging over Hope and Landon’s fate in the season. Hope is under a sleeping spell, while the latter was stabbed with the golden arrow. Will they revive? We guess all we can do as of now is wait.
The Cast of the Show
It is too early to say about the cast of the show but some of the members who are likely to return are Kaylee Bryant as Josie, Jenny Boyd as Lizzie, Matt Davis as Alaric, Quincy Fouse as ‘MG’ and Peyton Alex Smith in the role of Rafael. We are still unsure whether Danielle Rose Russell as Hope Mikaelson and Aria Shahghasemi as Landon will return as the fate of their respective characters are still unknown.
