With The Vampire Diaries being long over and The Originals coming to an end, we’ve been in a state. We’ve wondered what will fill that void in our heart and we’ve been hoping that it will be filled by Legacies.
Now we’re not always for spin offs, because the truth is 9/10 they suck. However, when it comes to the mind that is Julie Plec, we got blindly into the night, because that woman has never let us down. She’s flawless. She’s got her pulse on what the world needs and doesn’t hold back at all.
The show will allow us to watch the new generation – well Hope – of Mikaelson’s grow up. We’re excited to follow Hope as she journey’s through life. And hey – we’re excited to see the Saltzman twins grow up too.
Continuing the tradition of The Vampire Diaries and The Originals, the story of the next generation of supernatural beings at The Salvatore School for the Young and Gifted. Klaus Mikaelson’s daughter, 17-year-old Hope Mikaelson; Alaric Saltzman’s twins, Lizzie and Josie Saltzman; and other young adults come of age in the most unconventional way possible, nurtured to be their best selves…in spite of their worst impulses. Will these young witches, vampires and werewolves become the heroes they want to be — or the villains they were born to be?
With Legacies making an appearance at San Diego Comic Con, there is no shocker here that we have questions that we want answered.
Will we be seeing any of the characters of The Vampire Diaries, besides Alaric and his twins?
There is always hope that we’ll be able to revisit some of the characters that we have loved (and yes, we know Stefan is deceased, but hey, we still love the characters that first made us fall in love with this world. Will we ever get a visit from any of them? After all, it does seem plausible because Alaric is in the show and for instance – he could totally call upon Damon. It seems like something that could be done.
Will we be seeing any of the characters of The Originals?
We know, we know – it’s ending. But part of the thing that we have loved about Hope is seeing her grow and her relationships with her family evolve. They are an important part of her life, and uber important to her personality. So will we see more of that? What can we expect? We think it’s important to see those continue to evolve. Especially her relationship with her Dad. We’re not saying we need them every episode, but every once in awhile.
Will we still be dealing with people thinking Hope is an abomination?
Being a teenager is hard enough, but when people think you are an abomination – shit gets really complicated. So we’re wondering – what will people be thinking of Hope. Are the still going to beat down her self confidence at every turn? Look – don’t judge. Inquiring minds want to know.
What new characters can we expect to fall for?
We need new ships.
Why should we watch?
I mean, the truth is – in today’s world, we need to be motivated. We need to know what is happening and why we should devote our time to anything new. You need to sell us and on more than the sentimental side. So tell us, why should we watch? What is so important about Legacies?
Legacies premieres October 25th on The CW.
