For the last decade, the iconic heroes and villains of The Vampire Diaries and The Originals have captivated audiences worldwide. They left an enduring legacy of love and family in their wake, which continues in LEGACIES, a thrilling new drama that tells the story of the next generation of supernatural beings at The Salvatore School for the Young and Gifted. It's here that Klaus Mikaelson's daughter, 17-year-old Hope Mikaelson; Alaric Saltzman's twins, Lizzie and Josie Saltzman; and other young adults -- including political scion MG and the mysterious Landon Kirby -- come of age in the most unconventional way possible, nurtured to be their best selves... in spite of their worst impulses. Will these young witches, vampires and werewolves become the heroes they want to be -- or the villains they were born to be? As they fight to protect their secret, their town of Mystic Falls and eventually the world, they will have to rely on ancient folklore and tales to learn how to battle their far-reaching enemies.

But while vastly different from the shows that came before, Legacies never forgets its roots and serves up delightful Easter eggs.

Vampire spinoff has new characters, violence, sexiness.

As someone who is still bitter about how The Originals' series finale played out, I was perfectly prepared to be disappointed by Legacies Season 1 Episode 1, but there was a lot to like about it.

Legacies is for anyone interested in supernatural high school drama. And the nostalgic setting and fun easter eggs for fans of the Vampire Diaries universe are just the cherries on top.

Legacies is not at all what I was expecting... I probably would've scoffed and thought that the show was going too big. But I have to tell you guys: This show works. Yes, it's going big, but that's what makes it so fun (amongst other things). I am all in.

This is a supernatural "Riverdale" - which might be redundant, given the direction of that show this season. But after two series, the magic is thin and your interest may wane like the moonlight.
