The Real Reason Why Legacies Was Cancelled. Is There A Chance Of A Spin-off?

Spoilers for the Legacy’s ending follow.

Legacies, the supernatural television series, has officially reached its conclusion. The Vampire Diaries and The Originals spin-off have been cancelled after four seasons on the air.

Hope Mikaelson, a 17-year-old boarding school girl descended from the most potent vampire, witch, and werewolf bloodline, was portrayed on the programme by Danielle Rose Russell.

With the final episode of the teen drama Salvatore Boarding School for the Young & Gifted airing last night, the school has now permanently closed (June 16th).

In May 2022, when CW announced the show’s termination, fans went absolutely crazy and took to Twitter as a therapeutic, safe place to express their outrage.

“For the individuals who chose to revoke legacies and rob me of the only thing that brings me joy. I hope a show you become attached to is cancelled. #SaveLegacies.” Savage

“I won’t lie and say Legacies is the best show ever, but I don’t believe it deserved to be cancelled,” the speaker said.

One fan made the admirable commitment to watch the show through to the end:

I essentially cancelled all of my plans for tonight in order to watch the #Legacies finale. This is more crucial.

Is this the end of the world of The Vampire Diaries, or is there a chance for a spin-off? Why was the adored programme cancelled? This is what we do know.

Why was Legacies cancelled?

Not only THE CW Fans were devastated by the cancellation of Legacies. It appears that its creative team was likewise hesitant to part ways.

Julie Plec, the show’s executive producer and co-creator, expressed her feelings about the news in an interview with Entertainment Weekly, saying:

Plec said, “What I felt at the time was concern for the thousands of people who had just lost their jobs across three of my shows.

“We produced 331 television episodes, and many of the same crew members from the first season of The Vampire Diaries also worked on season four of Legacies.

“Over the course of these three events, we were able to create such a lovely family in Atlanta. It is distressing to think that it has merely vanished.

Though Plec had a sneaking suspicion that the show wouldn’t be renewed, the sad news wasn’t entirely unexpected.

Russell informed The Observer that they had a meeting with the producer as they were filming the climax.

“[She] returned briefly and made sure that we all said goodbye [in case the programme wasn’t renewed]—which I really appreciate because unfortunately it wasn’t.

“I emptied my dressing room and everything, so I believe by that point we were quite sure that was not going to happen. It really didn’t feel like the conclusion I was hoping for. We were not given a firm farewell. You do not always have that luxury, though.

There have been rumours relating the show’s premature cancellation to the CW’s anticipated sale, which has had an impact on other major shows that have also faced cancellation (as reported by The Express).

The contentious Charmed revival is one of the programmes that CW has cancelled. The witchy drama ended with a bang, but its contentious conclusion left viewers (and authors) with plenty to discuss.

Dynasty, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, Roswell, New Mexico, 4400, and Batwoman are all on the list of shows to be cancelled.

Legacies season 5: What could have happened if the show had been renewed?

Hope, the title character of the show, eventually found peace in the epilogue. Her father’s (Joseph Morgan) moving homecoming helped her come to terms with his passing, and she was prepared to take on a mentoring position at Salvatore.

The actress acknowledged that this is the first time her character has appeared so upbeat in an interview with TV Insider.

“I believe that this is the first time you have seen Hope in a very positive state, where she has accepted everything that has occurred to her and is looking forward to what lies ahead.

It felt that way as I was filming the conclusion since this is the first time we truly see her at such peace.

That serenity is slightly tainted by sadness because her love with Landon, played by Aria Shahghasemi, ended tragically when he was imprisoned.

Russell speculates that this might not have been the end for them both had the show gone on.

She said, referring to their future:

“I believe that they would have the chance to be together at some point. I believe that because Hope and Landon have dominated the programme, they were always sort of supernaturally predestined to be together.

“Aria and I came up with a few possibilities as to how that may possibly occur. That they would find their way back to one another does seem logical to me. But who’s to say that, at this stage of their lives, they wouldn’t venture out and meet new people and have new experiences, then follow those to wherever they ended up?

Not all unexpected cameos for the finale appeared with Klaus’s arrival. In the finale, Candice King took over Caroline’s post as interim headmistress of the school from Alaric (Matthew Davis).

Something tells us that Caroline would have loved her new job if she had been given the chance (*ahem, that chance being a season five).

According to EW, Plec acknowledged that she was largely happy with how everyone’s tale turned out, but she also confessed that she still has unresolved issues with Ben (Zane Phillips) and Jed (Ben Levin).

This year’s innovation was huge, and it was fantastic. They had just just begun when the story ended. One of the heartbreaks is that, claims Plec. They had just begun to warm up.

Ben and Jed’s relationship would undoubtedly have faced difficulties if the programme had continued (come on, it’s Legacies), but something tells us the two would be able to maintain their relationship.

Will there be a Legacies spin-off or movie?

For all of you vampire, werewolf, and supernatural addicts, there is excellent news. Plec appears to be fully committed to reviving the franchise in some way.

In the exact same interview with EW, Plec confidently stated:

“There’ll be one more.

We’re going to take a break since we’re a little depressed, but there are still more ideas. More needs to be done.

She says that the concept for this new version has been brewing for a while.

According to Plec, “We had a strategy to keep the franchise on the air until the next episode, which is in our heads but not yet on the page.

Russell joined Legacies after The Originals concluded to play Hope once more.

She might repeat the same action, which would open the door to a potential Landon reunion in the future.

Let’s maintain optimism (pun totally intended).

In the US, Legacies airs on The CW.
