 "Legacies"

Premieres Thursday, October 25 at 9 PM ET/PT on The CW
 

          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 (Danielle Rose Russell); Alaric Saltzman’s (Matthew Davis) twins, Lizzie (Jenny Boyd) and Josie Saltzman (Kaylee Bryant); and other young adults — including high-energy vampire MG (Quincy Fouse), newly-triggered werewolf Rafael Waithe (Peyton Alex Smith) and the mysterious Landon Kirby (Aria Shahghasemi) 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.
