Per News Reelz:
I guess The CW bloodbath wasn’t over. The network has announced that they have also canceled Legacies after four seasons.
The Originals spinoff from Julie Plec (The Vampire Diaries) was on the bubble, but had a slight edge due to its ties to one of the CW’s signature series, The Vampire Diaries. After this decision, the series will wrap up its fourth and final season on June 16.
Legacies was a spinoff of The Originals and features characters from both series and its predecessor The Vampire Diaries. The series stars Danielle Rose Russell as 17-year-old Hope Mikaelson, descended from some of the most powerful vampire, werewolf and witch bloodlines. Set in The Salvatore Boarding School for the Young & Gifted, Legacies tells the ongoing story of a new generation of supernatural students as they learn what it means to be special in a society that wouldn’t understand their gifts.
As of April 26, Legacies this season has averaged 760,000 total weekly viewers and a 0.2 demo rating (with Live+7 playback factored in), down from its Season 3 tallies (1 mil/0.3). Out of the 19 dramas The CW has aired this TV season, it ranks No. 12 in audience. Of note, its audience enjoys one of the two largest DVR bumps (+107%) of any CW series.
The end of Legacies also ends a 13 year run of The Vampire Diaries universe of shows that spanned through that series, The Originals, & Legacies. Are you sad to see it go? Sound off!
