The move marks the end of the vampire franchise.
May 12, 2022
It is being reported that The CW has cancelled Legacies after four seasons. The news comes ahead of the drama's Season 4 finale on June 16, which will now serve as its series-ender.
Premiering in 2018, the drama acts as a follow-up to 'The Vampire Diaries' and 'The Originals'. 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.
Today's cancellation of Legacies sees the long-running vampire franchise come to an end after 13 years on The CW. 'The Vampire Diaries' started it all in 2009 as a breakout hit on the network. Spin-off 'The Originals' followed in 2013, leading to Legacies five years later. Altogether, the three shows aired a total of over 330 episodes.
It’s the Red Wedding at WBTV/CW today. Much more to say, but not today.— Julie Plec (@julieplec) May 12, 2022
Loads of gratitude coming for fans and cast and crew in future tweets. But today, we mourn.
I can’t see the Arrowverse making it there at this rate.
