season 1 and 2, characters from The Vampire Diaries
and The Originals
return to reprise their roles. Legacies
follows the lives of a new generation of supernatural teens who attend the Salvatore School
for the Young and Gifted in Mystic Falls
, as they learn how to hone their powers while fighting a series of magical creatures.
In the series finale of The Vampire Diaries, Caroline Forbes and Alaric Saltzman start a school for young vampires, werewolves, witches, and an assortment of other mystical beings. Their primary goal is to provide a haven for their daughters, Gemini witches Elizabeth "Lizzie" Saltzman and her twin sister, Josette "Josie" Saltzman. The school teaches its supernatural pupils how to utilize their powers for good and gives them refuge from a world that views them as a threat.
The school is mentioned during season 4 of The Originals by Alaric Saltzman, who thinks it would be a good fit for Klaus and Hayley Marshall's tribrid (witch-wolf-vampire) daughter, Hope. Hayley enrolls her at the close of season 4 to keep her daughter safe from the Mikaelson's many enemies and give Hope the tools to keep her destructive tendencies in check. The school is featured prominently during season 5 as 15-year-old Hope deals with typical teenage rebellion, battles the ancient evil known as "the Hollow," and deals with her mother's death.
The final seasons of The Vampire Diaries and The Originals establish the premise of Legacies. The spin-off introduces a host of fresh faces, including members of the staff and student body as well as a long list of bad guys. But among new characters, there are familiar faces that viewers have encountered in the two previous series.
