Your wait for the Season 3 of Legacies might not be over soon, and for the viewers without access to Netflix US, the wait might never end.
After “The Vampire Diaries” and its spin-off “The Originals” ended in March 2017 and August 2018 respectively, the only thing keeping us alive is “Legacies”.
However, this October, it will be a year to the premier of Legacies Season 2 on Netflix US, and yet fans have received no updates regarding the Season 3. With each passing day in absence of any confirmation, fans have begun to wonder if there will be a Legacies season 3 or not.
- What’s the Netflix US release date for Legacies Season 3?
- Legacies Season 3 to premier around September 2021.
- Will the Season 3 of Legacies premiere on Netflix International?
Legacies debuted on The CW on October 25, 2018. As it was meant to carry the legacy of The Vampire Diaries forward, the fans of The Vampire Diaries tuned into the networks in massive numbers. This made Legacies a solid hit, forcing The CW to renew the show for a Season 2. Season 2 of Legacies premiered on October 10, 2018, and ran till March 26, 2020.
The CW renewed the Season 3 of Legacies in January 2020, well before the Season 2 came to an end. However, as happy the fans were to have the show renewed for one more season, they are now extremely worried about it.
What’s the Netflix US release date for Legacies Season 3?
The Legacies Season 3 is set to premiere on Netflix US in January 2021. But this release was planned at the beginning of this year.
As everyone knows the year has not been very kind to the world, including Hollywood. All the movies and shows of every major and minor production house, including CBS, Warner Brothers, The CW, and Netflix were halted, and the filming was delayed.
The studios are now gradually beginning the filming of some major shows. Still, The CW has been shy in sharing any updates regarding Legacies. This means that Legacies won’t be premiering on the slated date, as it’s impacted by the filming restrictions.
Legacies Season 3 to premier around September 2021.
The delay in the filming due to the world-wide lockdown might cause Legacies Season 3 to premier later than expected on Netflix US. As per the reports, the Legacies season 3 that was previously expected might get pushed towards the mid-2021.
The earliest expected date for the season 3 premiere now is September 2021. However, it is subjected to change and can go further down in the year towards November. Though there are possibilities of early 2021 release but in extremely rare cases.
Will the Season 3 of Legacies premiere on Netflix International?
One disappointing thing about Legacies for the fans of The Vampire Diaries was its unavailability in regions other than the US. All The Vampire Diaries shows, including The Originals, have been streaming on Netflix’s international services to date. For some reason, Netflix made Legacies Season 1 & 2 available exclusive for it’s US streaming platform only.
Some reports suggest it’s as per Netflix’s plan to cater regional shows to the audience of respective regions. However, fans of The Vampire Diaries are demanding Netflix to make Legacies Season 3 available internationally, including Season 1 & 2.
As of now, Netflix has no intention of making The CW’s Legacies available to the international audience through its platform. Fans will have to wait if any other network cracks the deal to make Legacies available internationally.
Do you think The CW and Netflix US will premier Legacies Season 3 in January 2021? If not, when do you think it will release?
