The “Hope is Not the Goal” Plot: FOLLOWING THE TRAIL — When two local students go missing, Alaric (Davis) sends Hope (Russell), Lizzie (Boyd), MG (Fouse) and Landon (Shahghasemi) to Mystic Falls High to investigate. Meanwhile, as Josie (Bryant) helps Rafael (Smith) adjust to his new life at the school, his reluctance to follow the wolf pack’s rules puts a target on his back.

The Season One Plot:
“For the last decade, the iconic heroes and villains of The Vampire Diaries and The Originals have captivated audiences worldwide. They left an enduring legacy of love and family in their wake, which continues in Legacies, a thrilling new drama that tells the story of the next generation of supernatural beings at The Salvatore Boarding School for the Young and Gifted. It’s here that Klaus Mikaelson’s daughter, 17-year-old Hope Mikaelson; Alaric Saltzman’s twins, Lizzie and Josie Saltzman ; and other young adults — including high-energy vampire MG, newly-triggered werewolf Rafael Waithe and the mysterious Landon Kirby — 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? As they fight to protect their secret, their town of Mystic Falls and eventually the world, they will have to rely on ancient folklore and tales to learn how to battle their far-reaching enemies.”
