A lot of people are searching on Google- “Is ‘Legacies’ cancelled?” Let’s debunk the rumours and get the latest updates on the series.
The cut-short season 2 of ‘Legacies’
The producers of ‘Legacies’ earlier planned for an extended 20-episode second season. Later, they were forced to air the sixteenth episode as the finale because the final four episodes could not be completed due to the coronavirus led shutdown. Though the planned final four episodes had to bite the dust, fortunately for fans, the show has already been renewed for season 3. Network TV was particularly affected due to the lockdown. While streaming shows film the season entirely before airing it, network shows in production are usually only a few episodes ahead of the ones that are airing.
‘Legacies’ had shut down production ahead of the sixteenth episode of the show’s second season. Julie Plec announced the wrapping of ‘Legacies’ Season 2 with the sixteenth episode in a Tweet.
‘Legacies’ Season 3: Renewed or cancelled?
The CW had announced their decision not to cancel the show earlier this year. They were planning to renew the season 3 even before the second season premiered. There’s no need to believe in the rumours that are only being floated as click baits.
The CW network has renewed 13 of its scripted series, including ‘Legacies’, this year. All the renewal announcements were made in January. The CW president Mark Pedowitz released a press statement: “These early orders for next season give our production teams a head start in plotting out story arcs and a jump on hiring staff.”
He added further, “… and this also provides us with a strong foundation of established, fan-favourite CW shows to build on for next season”. There is one pending episode from season 2 that Julie Plec was planning to release as a musical episode. As of now, there’s no news about the season 2 musical episode release date. Creator Julie Plec didn’t share whether it’ll be a one-off special episode or will be a part of season 3. But she has suggested that it will definitely air. She said:
“If we don’t eventually complete and air the musical episode I will (metaphorically, not literally) die. So I think we’ll be fine”.
