The CW’s The Vampire Diaries launched the spinoff The Originals back in 2013. When The Vampire Diaries finished up its eight season run in March 2017, at least fans of the supernatural characters still had The Originals to turn to for vampire shenanigans. And now that The Originals wrapped up its five seasons in August 2018, fans of the franchise will be able to tune into the new spinoff, Legacies.
Legacies follows the adventures of Klaus Mikaelson (Joseph Morgan) and Hayley Marshall’s (Phoebe Tonkin) daughter, Hope (Danielle Rose Russell), as she handles high school life at The Salvatore Boarding School for the Young and Gifted. The Vampire Diaries series regular Matt Davis co-stars, reprising his role as Alaric Saltzman.
The first season’s cast also includes Jenny Boyd as Lizzie Saltzman, Kaylee Bryant as Josie Saltzman, and Quincy Fouse as Milton Greasley / MG. Aria Shahghasemi is Landon Kirby and Peyton Alex Smith plays Rafael Waithe.
Season one episode one is titled “This is the Part Where You Run” and airs on October 25, 2018 at 9pm ET/PT. The episode was directed by Chris Grismer from a script by Julie Plec.
The “This is the Part Where You Run” Plot: SERIES PREMIERE — Under the guidance of headmaster Alaric Saltzman (Davis), the next generation of supernatural beings at The Salvatore Boarding School for the Young and Gifted — including tri-brid Hope Mikaelson (Russell), Alaric’s twins Lizzie (Boyd) and Josie (Bryant), high-energy vampire MG (Fouse), newly-triggered werewolf Rafael (Peyton Alex Smith) and the mysterious Landon (Shahghasemi) — come of age in the most unconventional way possible, nurtured to be their best selves…in spite of their worst impulses.
