What Is Legacies?

"Legacies" is a fantasy series that takes place in the same universe as "The Vampire Diaries." It is a spin-off of "The Originals" and includes characters from both previous shows. It takes place within The Salvatore Boarding School for the Young & Gifted and focuses on the up-and-coming generation of gifted youngsters.

Here is the synopsis for Legacies:

Set in The Salvatore Boarding School for the Young & Gifted, and within "The Vampire Diaries" universe, LEGACIES tells the ongoing story of a new generation of supernatural students as they learn what it means to be special in a society that wouldn't understand their gifts. In season two, Hope Mikaelson (Danielle Rose Russell) returned to a world that had forgotten she ever existed and reunited with her former Headmaster, Alaric Saltzman (Matthew Davis). Working together, Hope and Dr. Saltzman ultimately rejoined The Salvatore School to lead their Super Squad of powerful vampires, witches and werewolves, including Lizzie & Josie Saltzman (Jenny Boyd & Kaylee Bryant), MG (Quincy Fouse), Rafael (Peyton Alex Smith) and Kaleb (Chris Lee) and even a Phoenix, her true love Landon (Aria Shahghasemi), into battle against a dizzying horde of fantastic and deadly monsters birthed from the Malivore Pit ... and their old nemesis, The Necromancer, who was determined to resurrect Malivore. As season three begins, Hope has risked everything to pull her friends back from the brink of a monstrous prophecy that threatened to doom them all. But when a heartbreaking loss shatters her whole world, Hope Mikaelson will be forced to fight fate itself.
