Will we ever get to see another season of Legacies? Read on to find out more about Legacies Season 5.
Legacies is a fantasy drama series that follows the life of Hope Mikaelson, the 17-year-old daughter of Klaus Mikaelson and Hayley Marshall from The Originals. It is a spin-off of The Originals and also, features characters from both that series and its predecessor, The Vampire Diaries. Hope is a descendent of some of the most powerful vampires, werewolves, and witches. She attends the Salvatore School for the Young and Gifted and learns to control her abilities and impulses.
The third season of the series was premiered on January 21, 2021, and the fourth season on October 14, 2021, and since then, there’s no news of the renewal of the series for a fifth season. But finally, after a long wait, makers have revealed the fate of the series, and let’s just say, it’s not something that many of us wanted. If you are also looking for information on the fifth series of Legacies, we’ve got you covered!
Here’s everything you need to know about Legacies Season 5.
Will there be a Season 5 of Legacies?
No, we will never get to see the fifth season as the series has been canceled by The CW. After 13 years and more than 300 episodes, The Vampire Diaries saga is finally coming to an end. The reason for the cancelation has not been disclosed yet but according to a Deadline report, the show is axed by its parent studio, Warner Bros. Television, and not The CW. It said, “The CW was willing to renew those shows, but the studios behind them were not for business reasons as they try to keep their slates profitable.”
Creator, Julie Plex posted the cancelation announcement on Twitter that reads, “It’s the Red Wedding at WBTV/CW today. Much more to say, but not today. Loads of gratitude coming for fans and cast and crew in future tweets. But today, we mourn.”

to anyone already considering giving up, you have to realize that obtaining rights to a show, finalizing deals, etc doesn’t happen overnight. it has been pointed out many times that shows that have been cancelled in the past were picked up up to two months later. #SaveLegacies
