Legacies Season 5 Release Date
According to the latest news, Legacies Season 5 won’t be happening anytime soon. The makers have made it official that the ongoing season is going to be the last and final season of this series. The reason for the cancellation of the show is not the makers but The CW. Even though the actual reason for its cancellation has not been disclosed, it is being said that Warner Bros Studios decided to take this decision as they want to keep their slates profitable. Julie Plec, the creator of Legacies, recently took to Twitter to make the announcement official. The tweet reads-
“It’s the Red Wedding at CW today. Much more to say, but not today. Loads of Gratitude for the fans and the cast and crew in future tweets. But today, we mourn”.
Following this, a lot of fans and viewers on Twitter started a #SaveLegacies Campaign in order to plead with the makers to continue the show. Well, this alone shows the massive amount of love that the series has been getting. However, we don’t know whether this campaign will be of any help as the decision remains the same for now.

Legacies is a thrilling drama that follows the life of Hope Mikaelson, the 17-year old daughter of Klaus Mikaelson who has been descended from powerful vampires, werewolves, and witches and has got evil blood. It is also a spin-off after two years of The Originals events. She attends a school called Salvatore that is meant for the young and gifted. There she learns to control her supernatural abilities and impulses. The show has also got some characters from the popular series The Vampire Diaries. If Season 5 was to be made, the plot would pick up from where it concluded in Season 4. However, there is close to no possibility of that since the show has been officially cancelled.
