The CW announced today that Legacies has been picked up for a third season. Premiering in 2018, the drama acts as a follow-up to The Vampire Diaries and The Originals. Today's renewal comes during the show's midseason hiatus, with new episodes scheduled to return on January 16.

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.

Look for Season 3 of Legacies in the fall.
