Remember when Elena and Stefan met on a night, some 11 years ago, and it was epic? Things are about to get a lot better when ‘Legacies’ Season 3 arrives!
There’s no story like the ones that are inspired by vampire lore and combined with teen drama and romance. ‘The Vampire Diaries’ is a teen staple from the late 2000s that introduced us to two of the most good-looking vampire brother duos of all time.
The vampire clan to get bigger and better with the coming together of the three shows from the TVD universe
- ‘Legacies’ Season 3 is on its way
- ‘The Vampire Diaries’ and ‘The Originals’ will live on forever
- Will the three shows have a combined reunion?
Damon and Stefan Salvatore (Ian Somerhalder and Paul Wesley) and their whirlwind romance with Elena Gilbert (Nina Dobrev) is unforgettable. The drama, the vampire fiction, the werewolves, the witches, and other supernatural elements made the show truly amazing. It left the viewers curious and wanting more, making them hooked to the show!
The show’s success spawned two spin-offs – ‘The Originals’ and ‘Legacies’ – that went on to create a world within the same universe. While one series followed the original vampire clan’s escapades in the city of New Orleans, the other followed the events in the aftermath of ‘The Vampire Diaries’ series finale.
Fans have often wondered if their favourite characters will make an appearance in the spin-off but it seems impossible for that to happen. Both shows are set in a different timeline which makes it impossible for old characters to reprise their iconic roles.
The era of vampires will only get bigger, and with ‘Legacies’ Season 3 on the way, there’s a lot in store for fans.
‘Legacies’ Season 3 is on the way
After months of uncertainty, ‘The Vampire Diaries’ spin-off is finally filming again! The series follows Hope Mikaelson, the daughter of the original Klaus and werewolf Hayley Marshall. ‘Legacies’ sees her attend the Salvatore School for the Young and Gifted, where she learns to use and control her supernatural abilities.
The second season ended with a major cliffhanger which shocked viewers! The unexpected twist and turns saw Landon unable to regain consciousness in the finale, after being struck by the golden arrow. To make things worse, Hope too remains asleep which made viewers wonder if the characters had met their ends.
‘Legacies’ Season 3 has finally begun filming so we can expect to receive some clarity on the subject soon! The official ‘Legacies’ Instagram account revealed that the cast and crew were back on set through a series of photos last week!
‘The Vampire Diaries’ and ‘The Originals’ will live on forever
With streaming giants distributing these shows to a larger, newer audience each time, the two are sure to live on forever. ‘The Vampire Diaries’ set a benchmark for vampire-centric shows that came after and will continue to do so. With a steady, growing fanbase, it is likely that conversations about the show will only increase.
It’s hard to imagine a world without these two iconic shows. One introduced us to vampires and werewolves we’d remember for a long time, and the other focused on a certain beloved original vampire. Without ‘The Vampire Diaries’ and ‘The Originals’, the world of vampire fiction would seem plain and uninteresting.
As for ‘The Originals’, it’s rarely ever been that a spin-off series is regarded to be better than its original source material. While the predecessor provides context to the characters in ‘The Originals’, the spin-off is still heralded as great!
Will the three shows have a combined reunion?
Fans have often asked showrunners and the cast of the three shows if they can expect to see a reunion of sorts. ‘The Originals’ is already done for and premiered its final season in 2018, but ‘Legacies’ Season 3 is coming!
The show can’t bring back old characters because of the timeline of events, but there’s room for flashbacks! ‘Legacies’ has often referenced Damon and Elena’s happy married life, so it shouldn’t be impossible to incorporate a flashback.
Elena’s (Nina Dobrev) character played several doppelganger roles in ‘The Vampire Diaries’, but she quit the show during season 6. Most other characters from the show fulfilled their on-screen destinies and moved on to other projects. A reunion might be hard, but not impossible if the creators put their mind to it! Until then, the vampire world is only getting better and bigger, and we can’t wait to see ‘Legacies’ Season 3 join it!
