Legacies was a break-out hit on The CW this year and will be returning for season 2 later this year. If you’re wondering whether season 2 will be on Netflix or if it’s coming to your region. Here’s what you need to know.
In case you weren’t aware, Legacies is a spin-off from The Originals that is also a spin-off from The Vampire Diaries. It was created by Julie Plec and stars Danielle Rose Russell, Kaylee Bryant and Matthew Davis among many others. It’s a young cast set in a school that follows Hope, a young daughter of a vampire and a wolf making her way through college.
Season 1 came to Netflix, in the United States at least, on April 8th, 2019 just a week after it had concluded its season on The CW. It was one of several debut shows in the 2018/19 era for The CW with others being Into the Dark and the reboot of Charmed.
This year, the show once again begins in its regular fall slot. New episodes will begin releasing weekly from October 10th, 2019.
Will Legacies be leaving Netflix?
You may have heard rumors that The CW content is leaving Netflix in the US but that’s certainly not the case. Indeed, Netflix’s relationship with The CW is changing as of this year but that doesn’t mean the removal of current shows.
Legacies has been converted to a legacy contract meaning so long as there’s new seasons of the show, Netflix will continue to get them.
When will season 2 of Legacies be on Netflix US?
The show should still continue to release on Netflix in a similar fashion to other shows from the network. That means a week after the series finale has aired, you’ll be able to watch on Netflix.
Given the current schedule and assuming that season 2 has the same number of episodes, we’re expecting Legacies season 2 to be on Netflix between late March to early May 2020.
Are other Netflix regions getting Legacies?
Legacies only stream on Netflix in the United States because of the output deal it had with The CW. Our records indicate the show hasn’t been shopped in most regions of the world with Netflix perhaps taking a look at US figures to fully roll out before taking the decision to carry it.
We’ll let you know if anything changes but for now, you have no way of streaming Legacies outside of the United States.
