Legacies is not at all what I was expecting... I probably would've scoffed and thought that the show was going too big. But I have to tell you guys: This show works. Yes, it's going big, but that's what makes it so fun (amongst other things). I am all in.

Legacies isn't good enough for me to recommend to a viewer starting here from scratch, but it moves at a brisk clip and has the general feel familiar to fans of this storytelling world and there's reliable comfort in that.

Legacies is for anyone interested in supernatural high school drama. And the nostalgic setting and fun easter eggs for fans of the TVD universe are just the cherries on top.

They never take themselves too seriously, enjoying the hell out of some classic sci-fi tropes and dismantling some fantasy lore.

But while vastly different from the shows that came before, Legacies never forgets its roots and serves up delightful Easter eggs.

Vampire spinoff has new characters, violence, sexiness.

As someone who is still bitter about how The Originals' series finale played out, I was perfectly prepared to be disappointed by Legacies Season 1 Episode 1, but there was a lot to like about it.

Legacies is for anyone interested in supernatural high school drama. And the nostalgic setting and fun easter eggs for fans of the Vampire Diaries universe are just the cherries on top.

Oct 26, 2018 | Rating: 8.3/10 | Full Review…

This is a supernatural "Riverdale" - which might be redundant, given the direction of that show this season. But after two series, the magic is thin and your interest may wane like the moonlight.

Oct 25, 2018 | Full Review…

You'll have little idea of what the show looks like, beyond the vague sense that attractive 20-somethings playing teenagers will make out a lot.

Oct 25, 2018 | Full Review…

Legacies must be given credit for boldly confronting the bigoted myths about lycanthrope/Wiccan miscegenation.

Audience Reviews for Legacies: Season 1

    Unappealing plot, very cheesy and somewhat repetitive. This show is on the other side of the scale compared to TVD or TO. The plot is so repetitive that the bad guy from season 1 lasts all the way to season 2. Smh.

    Awesome fantasy drama. I initially saw season one and did not really get it. However, after binging on the Originals I finally get it. Now I'm starting from square one on NETFLIX and currently on a legacies binge.

    It is corny and cheesy as hell, very lighthearted compared to TVD or TO. I love a show that knows what it is and it is definitly one of my favourite guilty pleasures!

    This series has so much potential and great actors, this season was by far the best. Some plotlines were up with "the originals" at quality and others were god awful boring. Although a good romance is nice once in a while several plotlines in the same episode was often all based on romance and drama, which points towards a younger audience (9-13 years) with less realistic looks on the subject, the transition from total strangers to "would die for" is not even present. The idea, fantasy elements and general feel is good, and some episodes really saved the series.

    Big fan of the originals and this spin off goes deep into supernatural I love it.
  • Feb 07, 2020
    This show is so fun to watch, and though I loved TVD and the Originals, Legacies brings the supernatural world to a whole new level.

    I love the VD universe. I hated when they stopped the Originals but I was happy when I heard that they continued with another spin off. I read the VD books, personally I prefer what they made of the show. The vampires in the books very all telepathic, so it is very hard to make that in a TV show, when the Character are constantly aware of things you cant see. So it was better to change it for the show. They introduce far more mythical creatures in the show, which I love.

    Love this show!! There is nothing like it on TV and I love to know the stories continuing from vampire diaries and the originals.
  • Jan 07, 2020
    Legacies is the perfect series for people that like the supernatural. Nowadays supernatural series are based around superheros and have the same plotlines. This is not the case with legacies. This series is fresh,is funny, has style and has its own kind of mysery. Also it doesnt cut ties with the vampire diaries nor the originals and you dont have to watch them to enjoy this new and incredible story. I believe that it's worth giving a chance and that you won't regret it.

    As a fan of vampire diaries I am loving this show as well bring on more action
