It’s basically X-Men – except instead of mutants, kids are witches, vampires and werewolves.
Rejoice! We are far from saying goodbye to the Salvatore’s mystical universe as it will be expanding this fall on The CW.
A new trailer for the upcoming spin-off, ‘Legacies’, was released at the San Diego Comic-Con last weekend.
The show will be focusing on Hope Mikaelson, daughter of hybrid (vampire and werewolf) Klaus Mikaelson and werewolf Hayley Marshall, and her other mystical classmates at ‘The Salvatore School for Young and Gifted’ ran by Alaric Saltzman.
Here is the official synopsis:
Legacies: A spinoff of The Vampire Diaries and The Originals from Julie Plec, this is the story of the next generation of supernatural beings at The Salvatore School for the Young and Gifted. Attending the school? Klaus and Hayley’s daughter Hope Mikaelson, Alaric Saltzman’s twins, Lizzie and Josie, and other young adults. Will these young witches, vampires and werewolves become the heroes they want to be—or the villains they were born to be?
Actors Matt Davis (Alaric Saltzman) and Danielle Rose Russell (Hope Mikaelson) will be starring in the spin-off. It’s still unsure which other known characters will be making an appearance but rumors have been going around that Phoebe Tonkin (Hayley Marshall) and Joseph Morgan (Klaus Mikaelson) will be guest starring in some episodes.
