‘Legacies’ is a supernatural series set in the same universe as ‘The Vampire Diaries’ and its spin-off ‘The Originals.’ The show follows Hope Mikaelson, who is an unusual tribrid of powerful vampire, werewolf, and witch bloodlines. Hope attends the Salvatore School for the Young and Gifted, where supernatural beings come to hone their abilities and gain control over their impulses. Created by Julie Plec, the fantasy drama originally released on October 25, 2018.
The series drew a lot of attention, primarily because it evokes nostalgia among fans of ‘The Vampire Diaries’ universe. However, it has managed to impress the critics as it distinguishes itself from the sister shows despite the constant comparison. It has garnered praise for its fast pace, intriguing plotlines, and solid storytelling. With the third season coming to a close on a massive cliffhanger, you must be curious to know if the show will return for the fourth round. So, here is everything you want to know!
Legacies Season 4 Release Date
‘Legacies’ season 4 is set to premiere on October 14, 2021, at 9 pm on The CW.
The CW announced the fourth installment on February 3, 2021, months ahead of the season 3 finale. The supernatural series is among the 12 shows that The CW picked up for the new TV season, including series like ‘Riverdale,’ ‘The Flash,’ ‘Batwoman,’ ‘Dynasty,’ and ‘All American,’ to name a few. Mark Pedowitz, the Chairman and CEO of The CW Television Network, shared the reason behind the mega order in a public statement. He said, “Though we’re just a few weeks into the new season, we wanted to get a strategic head start on next season with these early renewals, which allows our production teams to start laying out story arcs and hiring staff, and at the same time, continues to provide us with a strong, stable schedule to build on for next season.”

Season 3 had been planned for a 20-episode run, but the sixteenth episode served as the season finale. The upcoming edition might include the plotlines that were meant to be covered in the third round. However, the episode count for the upcoming cycle has not yet been disclosed.
Legacies Season 4 Cast: Who can be in it?
The prominent cast members in the show are Danielle Rose Russell (Hope Mikaelson), Aria Shahghasemi (Landon Kirby), Jenny Boyd (Lizzie Saltzman), Kaylee Bryant (Josie Saltzman), and Quincy Fouse (MG). Others who play significant roles are Matt Davis (Alaric Saltzman), Ben Levin (Jed), Leo Howard (Ethan), Nick Fink (Ryan Clarke), Chris Lee (Kaleb), and Omono Okojie (Cleo). Therefore, we can expect most of these actors to reprise their roles in the upcoming season. We might also see some new faces.
The fans have not given up hope of seeing some actors from ‘The Vampire Diaries’ and ‘The Originals’ in guest roles. So far, we’ve got appearances from Zach Roerig (Matt Donovan), Steven R. McQueen (Jeremy Gilbert), Riley Voelkel (Freya Mikaelson), and Chris Wood (Kai Parker). Candice King (Caroline Forbes) reportedly did an uncredited voiceover in the third season. Whether or not these actors will reprise their roles in the fourth season is yet to be known.
Legacies Season 4 Plot: What can it be About?
In the final episode of season 3, Hope realizes that she needs to transform into a Tribrid to access the full potential of her powers. In order to do this, she is compelled to work with someone from her past. As she is still upset about the way things turned out with Landon, Lizzie sets a plan in motion to help her move on. We also see that Hope finds it challenging to let things go, especially when she sees Landon with her roommate Cleo. But she realizes that they are working on the same mission as her, Alaric, and the Saltzman twins. However, things go very differently than what Hope had imagined, which could permanently set her and Landon on different paths.
The fourth season will explore MG’s vampirism and whether he can use his special abilities for the greater good. We might continue to see Hope discover and understand her true nature as a Tribrid. It would also be interesting to see where Hope and Landon end up after the events of the third season’s finale. Many adventures await Lizzie, Josie, Kaleb, MG, and the other students at the Salvatore School. So, there is a lot to look forward to in the upcoming installment.
