Legacies Season 3: Renewal, Spoilers, Casting, and More

Lindsay MacDonald

Legacies is officially back and wow did we miss these misfit kids in Mystic Falls. Here's everything we know about Season 3, which is currently airing on The CW. Check out all the casting information and spoilers we know so far to keep yourself up to date about the new season.

It premiered in January 2021. Legacies returned on Thursday, Jan. 21 at 9/8c for Season 3, following the world premiere of Jared Padalecki's new series, Walker

Production is back on. Production on Legacies Season 3 resumed in mid-October, which tracks with The CW's expected premiere date in 2021. The show's social media accounts posted photos of actors back on the set, wearing masks and staying socially distanced between takes.

Klaus Mikaelson (Joseph Morgan) won't be showing up. Though we've held out hope (pun totally intended) that we'd one day see Hope's dearly departed dad show up on Legacies -- be it via the therapy crystal, a flashback, or even as an actual ghost -- it seems like we should cross that one off our wishlist for good. Joseph Morgan recently told TV Guide that we'll never see Klaus on his daughter's spin-off series because it would feel forced, and in his mind, that story has ended. We'll just have to hold out for Caroline (Candice King) instead!

We'll be seeing more of Jed (Ben Levin) and Ethan (Leo Howard). Though we didn't see a whole lot of them in Season 2, Jed, a werewolf at the Salvatore School, and Ethan a human who goes to Mystic Falls High School, will be around a lot more in Season 3. Deadline reports that both Leo Howard and Ben Levin have been upped to series regulars in the upcoming season.

Legacies Seasons 1 and 2 are available to stream on Netflix. Legacies Season 3 airs new episodes Thursdays at 9/8c on The CW.
