“Legacies” is a fantasy series set in the same universe as “The Vampire Diaries,” and it is set in the same universe as “The Vampire Diaries.” It’s a spin-off from “The Originals,” and it features characters from both shows. It takes place at The Salvatore Boarding School for the Young and Gifted and is aimed at the next generation of gifted children.
Just days after the show’s season 3 debut, The CW officially renewed Legacies for season 4 (along with 11 other shows, according to TVLine). While there’s still a lot of ground to cover in Season 3, it’s never too early to speculate on what the Super Squad might do next.
Legacies have proven to be a worthy continuation of the world established in The Vampire Diaries and The Originals by creating its own path while also paying honour to the characters that came before it throughout the course of its first three seasons.
According to executive producer Brett Matthews, the series is intended to be lighter than any of the previous vampire-centric shows. Legacies have become the perfect retreat for viewers — especially those who enjoy stories filled with otherworldly hijinks — when the real world feels heavier than ever.
In a Collider interview, Matthews noted, “The Vampire Diaries was dark and intense, and death could come knocking on your door at any time.” “The world has strangely gone in that direction, so Legacies is hopefully the antidote to that, where things are a little brighter, a little sunnier, and a little more optimistic about the world.”
While we don’t know much about what Season 4 of Legacies will entail just yet, it appears that the show’s signature optimism will be maintained.
When will Legacies Season 4 Premiere On The CW?
The continuing coronavirus pandemic has disrupted Legacies’ timetable, as it has many other television shows. Season 2 terminated with episode 16 in 2020, due to a production suspension before the final four episodes could be shot. Season 3 was also affected by the worldwide health crisis as it progressed.
New seasons of the show had previously premiered in October, but the show’s third season has been put back to January 2021. At first, fans were concerned that Season 4 would be pushed back to the midseason, putting the premiere date in January 2022.
Thankfully, The CW appears to be on pace to resume its usual programming schedule. After the conclusion of Legacies season 3 in June, we’ll just have to wait four months for the start of season 4 on October 14th (via Express). That’s the kind of news that everyone can rally behind.
Which Cast Members Will Return For Legacies Season 4?
Despite the fact that the Super Squad is constantly confronted with hazardous creatures and terrible guys, the show’s roster has remained fairly unchanged thus far. Of course, things could change at any time, but the core cast is expected to return for season 4, providing that all of the characters survive the drama that season 3 has in store for them.
While it would be absurd to consider anyone in Mystic Falls secure, Hope (Danielle Rose Russell) will very probably remain the show’s anchor as it progresses. The brilliant tribrid will always be at the core of the show, Matthews told Collider. “Obviously, the Hope trip is the show’s driving force,” he explained.
In addition, unless there is a significant season 3 twist, Matthew Davis (Alaric), Kaylee Bryant (Josie), and Jenny Boyd (Lizzie) are almost certain to return. The Saltzman family, like Hope, is at the heart of the plot, and it’s difficult to envision Legacies without them.

Episode 9 Recap
On December 16th, 2021, Legacies season 4 episode 9 aired on The CW.
The autumn finale, titled I Can’t Be the One to Stop You, was a mind-blowing affair, as it finally saw Lizzie catch up with Hope after she went on a lunatic rampage. However, the Hope Lizzie discovered turned out to be Aurora in disguise, and Lizzie summoned Hope for a dramatic showdown after sealing Aurora away in a magical coffin.
The altercation did not proceed as planned. Lizzie couldn’t bear harming Hope, a feeling Hope didn’t share as she ruthlessly murdered Lizzie. But Lizzie’s journey didn’t end there, as she resurrected from the dead as a heretic, just like her mother had done years before.
Meanwhile, Josie, who had been dissatisfied at the Salvatore School for a long time, had made arrangements to leave with Finch. When Finch is called up to command the Super Squad after Jed becomes incapacitated, Josie is left to complete the one-way bus trip on her own.

What Will Legacies’ Season 4 Story Be About?
Again, it’s too soon to speculate on what Season 4 may contain, but we have a solid notion of where Season 3 will go. Matthews suggested that Hope and Landon will encounter new hurdles this year as they navigate combating evil as a couple in an interview with Entertainment Tonight on January 21. Meanwhile, in the aftermath of Josie’s violent deeds in season 2, the twins are on opposing paths.
“This year, Josie will go on a really intriguing journey,” he said. “In season 2, she clearly headed down a dark, violent road. As a result of her going black, she will return and resolve those difficulties, as well as figure out what she wants out of life and where she belongs at the Salvatore School and with her friends.”
While the personal experiences of the kids are important to the plot, the threat of the Necromancer will affect all of the students. “The Necromancer is going to make a massive play in Season 3 that will forever alter our mythology,” Matthews stated.
That sounds ominous, and it sounds like the kind of storyline that may have an impact on Legacies in season 4 and beyond.

Is There A Trailer For Legacies Season 4?
There isn’t a trailer for Legacies Season 4 yet. A trailer will most likely be released closer to the show’s October 14 premiere date.
Meanwhile, fans have been discussing the fourth season of Legacies on social media.
One admirer wrote on Twitter: “Where is the flavour in Legacies??? Season 4 should be a lot darker! I’m missing the crying over characters and the blood.”
“Look, I know the “it was a dream all along” cop-out is a crock, but I think we can all agree that it would be best if #legacies pulled that in season 4 and pretended season 3 was just dreaming,” another fan remarked.
According to CarterMatt, episode 10 of Legacies season 4 will premiere on The CW on Thursday, February 24th, 2022 at 9/8c.
However, a promo teaser issued after episode 9 provided a release date of January 27th, indicating that this was not the original plan for episode 10.
However, The CW then reversed this, following a trend on US television in which many episodes are postponed during the Winter Olympics in the first few weeks of February.
The Story of My Life appears to be a troublesome episode for the Super Squad, as they are sent on an unusual mission following the revelation in episode 9 that Lizzie is truly a heretic, while Hope is caught aback by an unexpected source.
