For the ones who enjoy a little something supernatural, ‘Vampire Diaries’ and ‘The Originals’ on CWS had stolen the show with exciting plotlines and mind-bending surprises. As a spin-off of ‘The Originals’, ‘Legacies’ hasn’t shied away from doing the same!
- Salvatore School gets a new headmaster.
- Damon Salvatore will likely make a comeback.
- The new headmaster has different plans.
‘Legacies’ is the next generation story of witches, vampires, and werewolves. With the daughter of Klaus Mikaelson and Hayley Marshall – Hope Mikaelson – as the protagonist, this one revolves around her adapting to a new life at Salvatore School for the Gifted and the Young. What makes her different is that she has descended from a witch, werewolf, and vampire bloodlines. The school is a safe haven for gifted children who can learn to control their supernatural powers and even exploit them at times. ‘Legacies’ Season 2 had initial plans of rolling out 20 episodes in its roaster. However, it ended with 16 and fans are hoping that ‘Legacies’ Season 3 will have the remaining.
Here are all the latest updates about the upcoming season!
When will ‘Legacies’ Season 3 release?
‘Legacies’ Season 3 is likely to release in the latter half 2021. The initial plans were to roll it out in October 2020. However, due to the pandemic, the production seems to have taken a hit.
What is going to happen in the third season?
For the ones who had been hung up on the beauty of Damon Salvatore in ‘Vampire Diaries’, there’s good news. Turns out, this handsome hunk is likely to make a comeback in ‘Legacies’ Season 3. His daughter, with Elena, has supernatural abilities which will likely make him enroll her in Salvatore school for the Gifted and the Young.
If that wasn’t enough to increase the glam quotient of ‘Legacies’, the handsome new school headmaster is all set to bring about a massive change in the routine.
Who is the new headmaster?
If any of you were a fan of Buffy, the vampire slayer, you’re in for a treat. Alexis Denisof made an entry as Professor Vardemus in ‘Legacies’ Season 2. He is the new headmaster of the school. Smartly dressed and shrewd in his demeanour, he has replaced Alaric Saltzman for the job.
“He is the new headmaster after a lengthy search headlined by Caroline Forbes”, showrunner Julie Plec told “Entertainment Weekly”.
“She has chosen a very well-respected, extremely experienced, and beloved man from England”.
Denisof added that his character “arrives from a larger supernatural world that exists far beyond the gates of the school and brings with him a clear and very different point of view”.
“The students jokingly call him Gary Poppins”, said Plec. “You can imagine that someone who’s a bit stiff and a bit proper and a bit opinionated might not go over as well as perhaps we would want him to”.
“But there will be a faction of kids who love him and a faction of kids who are wondering exactly what it is that makes him tick, and it will be a lot of fun seeing him and Alaric trade barbs over the teaching methods at the Salvatore School”.
This pretty much explains that Vardemus’ values are conflicting in nature with Alaric’s. While Alaric believed in the secrecy of their world, Vardemus has some different plans for the school. Furthermore, he believes in using the supernatural powers to their full potential – darkness included.
Well, only time will tell how he turns out to be. Rest assured, he is pretty soothing to the eyes. What do you think? Sre you excited for the new season? Let us know your thoughts in the comment box below!
