Julie Plec’s new “Vampire Diaries” spin-off, “Legacies”, has received a series order at The CW.
Encouraged by the success of the first “Vampire Diaries” spin-off, “The Originals”, the network decided to book “Legacies” over the “Supernatural” spin-off “Wayward Sisters”, which was also in contention for a slot.
Continuing the tradition of THE VAMPIRE DIARIES and THE ORIGINALS, the story of the next generation of supernatural beings at The Salvatore School for the Young and Gifted. Klaus Mikaelson’s daughter, 17-year-old Hope Mikaelson; Alaric Saltzman’s twins, Lizzie and Josie Saltzman; and other young adults come of age in the most unconventional way possible, nurtured to be their best selves…in spite of their worst impulses. Will these young witches, vampires and werewolves become the heroes they want to be — or the villains they were born to be?
