Legacies Season 4 is currently on air, and yet fans are eagerly awaiting Legacies Season 5. If we recall, the fourth season was renewed in the middle of the third season. So we can understand the eagerness of fans. However, the network has not yet opened up to Legacies Season 5. But we think the network will be announcing the future of the show soon. Furthermore, the show has captivated many viewers, so we expect it to return soon with an announcement of Season 5. Keep reading to know more.
Created by Julie Plec, the series follows a 17-year-old girl named Hope Mikaelson, Klaus Mikaelson, and Hayley Marshall’s daughter. She is descended from the most powerful witch, vampire and werewolf bloodlines. However, after a terrible time, she moved to the Salvatore School for young and gifted children. The school helps them live their lives and teaches them to control their power and impulses.
Has it already been updated?
Unfortunately not yet! Legacies Season 4 aired on October 14, 2021 and is expected to conclude on May 26, 2022. So it’s pretty early to guess whether the series will return with the fifth season. But if we recall, they dropped the third season on January 21, 2021, and in February 2021, The CW renewed the show for its fourth run. So fans are a bit concerned about whether the show could return for its fifth season. Since it’s been six months, and the show is about to air on the network.
Well, the series creator and the network have not revealed that the fourth season will be the show’s final season. So it gives us hope that the show can probably return with the fifth season soon. There is, however, a decline in viewing figures. Legacies has 760,000 viewers and a demo score of 0.2, which is 33% lower than the ratings for the third season. So the drop in live streaming could be a reason for the delay in the Legacies Season 5 renewal.
Legacies Season 5: Who could be in the cast?
No doubt Danielle Rose Russell will return as Hope Mikaelson with Aria Shahghasemi as Landon Kirby and Kaylee Bryant as Josie Saltzman. Jenny Boyd as Lizzie Saltzman joins Quincy Fouse as MG and Peyton Alex Smith as Rafael. Matt Davis returns as Alaric Saltzman, Chris Lee as Kaleb and Ben Levin as Jed. Leo Howard as Ethan will also join Ommono Okojie as Cleo.
What will happen next?
Well, the show is currently on the air, so it’s pretty tricky to speculate what will happen in the finale. In Legacies Season 4 Episode 15 titled “Everything That Can Be Lost May also Be Found”, Hope returns by astral projection to New Orleans, where her family prepares for Klaus’ funeral. The family did their best to remind Hope of her family and Klaus’s history. Marcel and Rebekah are now married and Davina and Kol are going strong. Freya and Rebekah reveal that Hope may still be pregnant.
At first, Hope struggles with her humanity, but soon comes to her senses. The family let Hope decide where to scatter Klaus’ ashes. She decides to take the necklace and its ashes to Mystic Falls, which was her home years ago. Meanwhile, Aurora and Lizzie team up with Ben after he learns they’re trying to find Chronos. Alaric talks to his younger self and prepares for battle with Gods. Cleo sees Mystic Falls on fire and everyone dies. Now they must wake Ken and break his curse.
Ben wakes Ken, and Hope wakes up too, but her non-human self still surrounds her, promising that the war is just beginning. Now in Legacies Season 4, Episode 16, titled “I Wouldn’t Be Here If It Wasn’t For This,” Hope continues to struggle with herself. But Lizzie hatches a plan to help Hope in her struggle. Cleo is still afraid of her visions and cannot deal with them. Alaric sends Ethan, MG and Kaleb on a crucial mission. Jed must make a bold move before things get out of hand.
Legacies Season 5: Release Date
