The CW’s Legacies is the third television show in The Vampire Diaries universe and is set to air its first episode on The CW Network on October 25th. With all the seasons of The Vampire Diaries and The Originals on Netflix, fans have been asking “When will season one of Legacies be on Netflix?”
The Vampire Diaries ended in 2017 and The Originals ended in August of this year. Fans left without either show needed something to fill the growing void. Legacies was announced at the San Diego Comic-Con and subsequently, a trailer was released.
The TV show, debuted in October 2018, will be released in the midst of all the current CW programming. If it’s as any good as The Vampire Diaries and The Originals then the showrunners for Legacies will have nothing to worry about.
Hope Mikaelson is now attending the Salvatore Boarding School of the Young & Gifted two years after the events in The Originals. The school's headmasters are Alaric Saltzman & Caroline Forbes. After Stefan's death, Damon Salvatore gave the school to Caroline.
Any untrained vampire, werewolf or witch who wants to control and learn their powers is welcome to the school. The school's students will learn to be their best selves, despite all their flaws. Will they become heroes? Are they made to be heroes?
The CW will be hoping to hit the ground running with this show, ultimately becoming the only show in The Vampire Diaries universe. Depending on how the show plays, it could pave the way for further spin-offs in the future. With the success of its predecessor’s Legacies has a lot to live up to.
Last updated March 2019. Netflix will pick up Legacies within a few weeks of the finale airing on CW.
Netflix will release Season 1 of Legacies in its entirety on April 5, 2019.
It’s the second update to The CW shows of 2019 with Black Lightning getting its second season added at the end of March.
In the US you’ll be able to watch the show on The CW Network or catch up with it on The CW streaming app they have available.
In the United Kingdom, there isn’t any news yet on which network the show is set to air, but going by how The Vampire Diaries aired it will most likely appear on ITV2 sometime in the next year.
The popular channel E4 could be the home of Legacies, where Supernatural is also housed. Legacies might also find a home at Sky Atlantic, which is the network Sky that hosts DC series.
