I didn’t love to watch any supernatural stories before I came to know about Legacies. And Legacies season 2 led me to a new world of supernatural fantasy. The thrill is still alive in my mind!
The storyline, characterization, music- everything made me bound to love this series. And that’s why I feel great thrust for its sequel.
Now, haven’t you watched this amazing series yet? No way. You should start watching immediately. And before that, let’s know about all the important facts about Legacies.
Legacies Season 2 Release Date: [Update: January, 2022]
If you are a supernatural fantasy series lover, then you may already know about Legacies season 2. Well, for me, it was one of the exciting series which I craved so much.
Who hasn’t watched this series but is growing interested, I would like to inform you that Legacies season 2’s last episode premiered on March 26, 2019. And it was started on October 10, 2019.
It’s a series created by Julie Plec and composed by Michael Suby; premiered on The CW. Related shows of this are The Originals and The Vampire Diaries; also few of the lead characters from these shows are continuing in Legacies.
The lead characters Hope Mikaelson and Landon Kirby are continuing hereafter The Originals. Josie Saltzman, Lizzie Saltzman, Alaric Saltzman from Vampire Diaries are continuing in the series.
There are a total of 16 episodes in season 2. And the running time of each episode is about 41 to 42 minutes.
Did Legacies Season 2 End Early?
So far we know that Legacies has been handed with 16 episodes. But it is said that this season was meant to have 20 episodes.
I have to inform you, the Legacies season 1 was a great success which ended with 16 episodes. It is said that the Legacies team decided to air extra 4 episodes. The production shut down shooting and finished the season a couple of weeks before the last episode’s premiere.
But even with 16 episodes, I think the season is quite an interesting one as it ended with so many threads to open. Whoever has watched this season definitely has questions about what’s going to happen next, if Hope and Landen are going to wake up, and so many more.
So, I think it doesn’t have much impact even though the season ended early. We, the fans, are still eagerly waiting for it, right?
Plot And Characters Of Legacies
This series is like a piece of cake for those who love vampire and werewolf kind of stories’. This supernatural fantasy’s main character is Hope Mikaelson who is the daughter of a werewolf and a vampire.
17-years-old Hope goes to the Salvatore School for the Young and Gifted. The school teaches supernatural beings to have control over their abilities and impulses. And after going there she meets some new people and people whom she used to know.
Hope’s parents are Klaus Mikaelson and Hayley Marshall who are descended from very powerful vampires and werewolves.
In school, she meets Landon Kirby. They knew each other before coming to the school and later Landon became Hope’s boyfriend. People thought he was a human but later it’s revealed that he is a phoenix.
Josie and Lizzie Saltzman are 15 years old twin sisters and students of Salvatore School. They both are witches. Josie lacks self-confidence and is different from Lizzie. Her sister Lizzie generally goes through an emotional meltdown and is a narcissist.
Josie and Lizzie’s father is Alaric Saltzman, who is the human headmaster at the school. There is also Rafael Waithe, Landon’s foster brother, and a werewolf.
Milton ‘MG’ Greasley is a good-natured vampire who works as Alaric Saltzman’s student aide. He is very friendly with the twin sisters. Kaleb’s a vampire student, practices a banned activity “drinking human blood”.
The story of the series revolves around these characters and thus a story of several vampires and werewolves continues. With the progress of each season, so many interesting twists and suspense are created.
I am sure if you start watching it, you won’t leave your place before finishing this series.
How Legacies Season 2 Ended?
Well, the last episodes were one hell of an episode that anyone who watched it will admit it’s an epic one.
In the last episode, we come to see Hope was asleep but still in Josie’s mind to defeat her inside the darkness. And in the end, Hope helped Josie to fight back.
Also in the real world, the twins’ father, Lizzie, and Necromancer try to remove the black magic from Josie and succeed. So, I think season 2 is the end of dark Josie. But the thing is, Necromancer is the one who absorbed the black magic and that’s why he will be paying for it.
In the last episode, Raf and Landon go to find the pool of blood and who the pool belonged to. It turns out that Necromancer killed Raf to make him an undead slave. So, even if Raf’s technically dead, we may see him in Legacies season 3 as he’s also alive for a moment.
The most shocking and devastating death we can say is Landon’s death. Though Landon’s immortal but his life could come to an end with the golden arrow. Finally, we come to the scene where Hope and Landon will not wake up. Lizzie’s pretending to be dead and everyone trying to play up Lizzie’s death.
There’re so many things that I am desperately waiting to know why Hope is stuck in Josie’s mind and Landon hasn’t woken up. Will they wake up or not? We will come to find it in season 3.
I must say that the writers and directors did a great job to keep up the viewers’ interest because there are few threads left to pull on the upcoming Summer!
Will There Be Legacies Season 3?
As I keep telling we will come to know everything in season 3, you already can understand that there will be season 3.
Generally, there’s always the sequel of those which can create a big impact on the viewers and can reach a profit.
The Legacies series has done well so far and gained much popularity. People have liked it and if we look at the reviews, we will find appreciation. And also the rating of Legacies is very good to continue the series further.
The rating of Legacies is well enough. Most importantly the characters and stories of it are so impactful that people are looking forward to season 3.
So there’s going to be season 3. And the good news is it’s been renewed for season 3 already! The CW president declared that it may come to January 2021 if everything goes well and scheduled.
Though it’s not guaranteed to be in January 2021. Even if it’s late than this given time, season 3 is definitely going to come to light.

As I have already watched Legacies season 2, I will say that anyone who has at least a bit of interest in supernatural fantasies is going to like the series.
The series has an amazing and interesting story that will pull you like a magnet in front of the screen.
Each character of the story has a variety and each one’s different. So people will find this variety interesting and not monotonous at all.
Again who are fans of The Originals and Vampire Diaries, for those this is a must as it has continuity of few characters from these two epics!
It’s a Julie Plec creation who’s continuing it after her two successes The Originals and Vampire Diaries series. These two are really touched by so many people and Legacies is following the path too.
So, I would say you will be investing your time in something good if you start watching Legacies!
We have come to the end and in the end, I would like to say that every person has different tastes, choices, and points of view. And Legacies series can add a bit of color into this too.
The story and diversity of the identities of every character can take you to a new world. You can escape from the real world for a time being with this series.
In the end, I want to say, Legacies season 2 will bring you to a different world where you can extend your imagination.
