Legacies is the name of The Vampire Diaries and Originals spin-off. It follows Hope Mikaelson and her adventures at The Salvatore School for the supernatural. Hope is the Daughter of Klaus Mikaelson and Hayley Marshall from The Originals. Hope is a Tri-Byrd or a Witch, a Vampire and a Werewolf combined. The Salvatore School named for Stefan and Damon Salvatore from The Vampire Diaries. Alaric reprises his role as teacher and monster hunter. His Gemini Witch Daughters Lizzie and Josie also go to the school.

Think of Legacies as a combination of Harry Potter, Grimm and Fablehaven series. We have a boarding school like in Harry Potter, but it isn’t just Witches and Wizards that go there. Vampires and Werewolves are also welcome. Later, we find out there are Fairies and Phoenixes as well. Very little time seems to be spent studying or learning things from books. Hope has to battle a variety of monsters each week, which reminded me of Grimm. However, there is a bit of Supernatural sense of humor in the show. Her battles ultimately lead to the discovery of Malivore. Malivore is known as the Eater of the Dark. He effectively erases mythological creatures from existence. The tar pit portal reminded me of the Demon Prison of Fablehaven.

Overall, the series is a little more humorous and lighthearted than its predecessors, but there is still plenty of drama. I missed watching it when it originally aired, but have watched Seasons 1and 2 on Netflix the past couple of weeks and I am looking forward to Seasons 3 on Netflix and Season 4 on The CW this Fall!
