This is the end of a franchise.
This year, the CW has canceled more shows than ever before. The main reason was the pandemic that disrupted the renewal and cancellation process for the broadcasting company. Legacies is another series that the CW canceled.
After a four-season run, Legacies, a spinoff series of The Vampire Diaries, will be shut down. Who will end the thirteen-year-old-old run of The Vampire Diaries with the end of the series?
Here’s everything we know so far about it:
The Vampire Diaries Franchise
“Legacies” was one of two spinoffs from The Vampire Diaries. The other is “The Originals.” The Vampire Diaries is one of the most iconic shows on the CW. It premiered in 2009 and ran for eight seasons. The series’ final season aired in March 2017.
Bad news today. But the GOOD news is we have so much love and support from such a wonderful fandom. The biggest of hugs to all of you. Can’t wait for you to see how the series ends. We’re going out with a bang and you’re gonna love it. #Legacies

The first spinoff from the franchise, the Originals, aired from October 2013 to August 2018. On the other hand, Legacies began in October 2015 and will end in May after four seasons.
“Legacies” was the final of The Vampire Diaries’ franchises, and its end will bring an end to a franchise that lasted 13 long years.
What is ‘Legacies?
The story of Legacies began when The Originals ended. Hope Mikaelson was the protagonist of the series. She was the daughter of Klaus Mikaelson (the vampire-werewolf hybrid) and Hayley Marshall, the werewolf. Hope attended the Salvatore Boarding School in Mystic Falls, where she was a School for the Young and Gifted students.
Hope learned her supernatural abilities and faced multiple threats and foes along the way. Legacies saw the return of several characters from the original Vampire Diaries characters, including Alaric Saltzman (Jeremy Gilbert) and Jeremy Gilbert.
The End Of ‘Legacies’
THR reported that the CW had announced that “Legacies” would not be renewed for a fifth series and that season four would be its last. It is now clear that the Vampire Diaries franchise has ended its run.
The CW’s recent cancellations were done before the sale date. ‘Legacies’ can be considered the most important one, as it marks one of the most prominent broadcasting networks.
Season 4 would be a great finale for fans. It would be worth the effort if it could be satisfying.
