The CW is firming up the episode counts of its freshman fall dramas today, and Legacies has received a small order of three extra episodes on top of its original 13 to bring its new total to 16.

The rookie drama, which acts as a follow-up to The Vampire Diaries and The Originals, premiered in late-October and is just two episodes into its debut run. Ratings started out so-so, but week 2 viewership - both overall and among adults 18-49 - saw an uptick to more-favorable numbers.

Legacies focuses on a group of young adults including Hope Mikaelson, the 17-year-old 'tribrid' daughter of Klaus and Hayley, and Lizzie and Josie Saltzman, Alaric Saltzman's twin girls. These young vampires, werewolves, and witches are coming of age in unconventional ways - on the road to becoming the heroes or villains they are meant to be.
