We haven’t heard from Legacies for a long time, which satisfies us with the vampire, witch, and werewolf theme we yearn for. We learned that Legacies has been canceled. So why is Legacies canceled?
Legacies is actually the spin-off of The Vampire Diaries and The Originals series. It is not necessary to watch these series to watch Legacies without question marks in your mind, but those who love these productions watched it with much more pleasure. Do you remember when we say Mystic Falls? Yes, the town that was the location of The Vampire Diaries. Legacies also begins in this town. In the series, we see several different students coming together at the Salvatore Boarding School. Some of these students are vampires, some are witches, and some are werewolves. Helping each other control their impulses, these students learn to be heroes together.
The series, which entered our lives in 2018, is in the drama genre and has a total of 4 seasons. Starring Danielle Rose Russell, Aria Shahghasemi, Kaylee Bryant, Jenny Boyd, and Quincy Fouse, Legacies’ IMDb score is 7.3.
Why is Legacies Canceled?
According to the last statements after a long time, the producer of the series, The CW Network, did not approve the 5th season of the series and we were silently separated from the series. Thus, we said goodbye to The Vampire Diaries universe, which we have known and loved for 14 years.
Although no definite explanation has been given as to the reason for the cancellation, it is said that there were some separations and disagreements between the producer and the cast of the series, and that this played a major role in the cancellation.
Does Klaus appear in Legacies?
No. In fact, we all had hope in this regard. As you know, Klaus died in the finale of The Originals. However, The Vampire Diaries universe had allowed deceased characters to return dozens of times. So in this universe, we could see Klaus in supernatural ways or in flashbacks, but we didn’t. The screenwriter of the series, Morgan, talked about it and said that he would not return.
As a reason, he said that Klaus had exhausted his story from beginning to end and that his story had now progressed and ended in a complete way. He said that even if they let Klaus be shown, it would be so out of place and unnecessary.
Is Elena in Legacies?
Yes, we can see the Elena we miss. In the ninth episode of the third season of the series, our main characters Josie and Alaric travel to Elena’s home in Mystic Falls. It is revealed that he lived in this house with Elena and Damon while going to Josie’s old school. And while Josie is talking to her father, we realize that Elena is a doctor and is on shift. She talks about making them a Salvatore family recipe for dinner. Apart from that, Josie’s father is smiling when he talks about Elena and past stories from time to time.
Is Stefan alive in Legacies?
No, Stefan is not a living character in the series. Paul Wesley, who plays Stefan in this regard, said in his own statements that his character is dead, so he will not return with Legacies. Mentioning that vampires are immortal and always exist in legends and other productions, Wesley said that this is not possible in The Vampire Diaries universe. Additionally, he stated that vampires always have to look the same, but since he doesn’t look the same, he would need a special effect.
The producers of the series and the universe also seem to give more chances to new characters instead of reintroducing deceased characters. Besides, Paul Wesley went backstage and directed an episode of Legacies in 2019.
