Legacies Season 3 has been renewed in January 2020 by The CW. The series created by Julie Plec is a spin-off of The Originals and The Vampire Diaries, that debuted on The CW on October 25, 2018. It got renewed for a second season that premiered on October 10, 2019.
Legacies Season 2 ended on cliffhangers and since then fans are anxious to know about the new episode details. So here’s everything we know so far about Legacies Season 3, including the release date, cast, plot, and the latest updates.
Legacies Season 3 Release Date:
Upon renewing the fantasy drama series for a third season in January 2020, The CW announced that it will release on January 21. Considering the show’s popularity not only among The CW audience but also for Netflix subscribers, the season had to be premiered as early as possible.
Even The CW president Mark Pedowitz had declared that every show that was set to premiere in fall has been pushed to next year due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
Legacies Season 3 Cast Details:
The fans of the show Legacies are expecting most of the original cast members to be back. This would include –
- Danielle Rose Russell as Hope Mikaelson
- Aria Shahghasemi as Landon Kirby
- Jenny Boyd as Lizzie Saltzman
- Kaylee Bryant as Josie Saltzman
- Peyton Alex Smith as Rafael Waithe
- Matt Davis as Alaric Saltzman
- Quincy Fouse as Milton “MG” Greasley
Legacies have added characters that were introduced on The Vampire Diaries and The Originals. However, there are still some of our favorite characters that we want to be shown again.
The series creator Julie Plec has given a slight hope when asked about the probability of the familiar faces returning. She said that there’s potential but also cautioned that they would have to figure out the right story.
Legacies Season 3 Expected Plot:
The second season of the show had to forcibly stop and had to end with “Facing Darkness is Kinda My Thing” episode due to the COVID- 19 pandemic.
So, Legacies season 3 will start with the episodes that would have culminated in the second season. We can expect Josie to bring Hope back to reality. The threat of the Necromancer (Ben Geurens) who had stolen the dark magic from Josie can become a major storyline. So with Hope and Landon possibly dead for now, it’ll be interesting to know as to what will happen to the students at the Salvador School.
