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.
