Legacies is a supernatural fantasy drama that premiered on The CW on October 25, 2018. Created by Julie Plec, it is a spin-off of two other popular shows, The Vampire Diaries and its spin-off, The Originals. Set in the fictional town of Mystic Falls, Virginia, Legacies is a story about a new generation of supernatural teenagers who attend the Salvatore School for the Young and Gifted, a boarding school for witches, vampires, and werewolves.

The series follows Hope Mikaelson (Danielle Rose Russell), the daughter of Klaus Mikaelson and Hayley Marshall, who is a tribrid (a witch, a vampire, and a werewolf). Hope is a strong and independent teenager who struggles to deal with her unique heritage and her estranged relationship with her father, who sacrificed himself to save her. Despite her troubles, she is determined to use her powers to protect her friends from the dark forces that threaten them.

Hope's guardian and headmaster of the Salvatore School is Alaric Saltzman (Matthew Davis), a former vampire hunter who was turned into a vampire and later cured. Alaric is a tough and experienced teacher who is devoted to his students' welfare. He is also a single father to his twin daughters, Lizzie (Jenny Boyd) and Josie (Kaylee Bryant), who are both witches. He is determined to provide them with the best possible education while also keeping them safe from harm.

Other key characters in the show are Raf (Peyton Alex Smith), a werewolf who becomes Hope's closest friend and confidante, and MG (Quincy Fouse), a vampire who struggles to control his thirst for blood. Landon (Aria Shahghasemi) is a human who is drawn into the supernatural world and becomes a critical character in the show's storylines. Chris De'Sean Lee plays Kaleb, a rebellious and sarcastic vampire who doesn't fit in with the other students.

Legacies takes place in a world where vampires, witches, and werewolves all exist, but tensions between the various groups run high. The Salvatore School serves as a sanctuary for supernaturals who want to learn how to use their powers for good, but it is also the target of several powerful enemies, including malevolent beings known as the Necromancers and the monstrous Malivore.

The show's plotlines explore themes of friendship, loyalty, family, and self-discovery. The characters struggle with difficult life choices, relationships, and the constant threat of danger. There are also several romantic relationships that develop throughout the series, adding additional layers of complexity to the storylines.

The setting for the show is stunning, with the picturesque town of Mystic Falls serving as a backdrop for many of the scenes. The supernatural elements are seamlessly integrated into the worldbuilding, making it feel like a natural and exciting part of the show's universe.

Legacies has received positive reviews from audiences and critics alike, with many praising the show's strong characters, engaging storylines, and creative use of the supernatural genre. It has been hailed as a worthy successor to The Vampire Diaries and The Originals, with its own unique charm and style.

Overall, Legacies is a gripping and entertaining supernatural fantasy drama that will keep you on the edge of your seat. With a talented cast, engaging storylines, and impressive worldbuilding, it is a must-watch for fans of the genre.

Legacies is a series that is currently running and has 4 seasons (69 episodes). The series first aired on October 25, 2018.
