The "Legacy" is a modern, San Francisco-based arm of an ancient and secretive Greek society that was created to protect the world from unimaginable evil. In each episode of this chilling supernatural series, the group members struggle to defeat all manifestations of wickedness including vampires, restless spirits, demons, werewolves and all practitioners of the black arts. Without their efforts, humanity would be lost.
Ghosts, witches and werewolves populated this creepy daytime serial about Maine's Collins family, which included Barnabas, a nearly 200-year-old vampire who longed to be cured. The supernatural soap shifted between the present and the 18th century to tell its gothic tale. A prime-time revival mounted in 1991 possessed more special effects, sex and gore than its bare-bones original, but it never caught on and was buried by NBC in less than two months.
