Who stars in Legacies season 3?

Danielle Rose Russell is back as teenage tribrid Hope Mikaelson, who is part vampire, part witch and part werewolf.

Also returning is Vampire Diaries and The Originals legend, Matthew Davis who will reprise his role as Alaric Saltzman.

Peyton Alex Smith returns as werewolf Rafael Waithe alongside Aria Shahghasemi as his foster brother, Landon.

Also returning is Kaylee Bryant as Josie, Jenny Boyd as Lizzie and Quincy Fouse as MG.

Much too fan’s disappointment, one star from the Vampire Diaries world has confirmed he will not be appearing in Legacies at all.

Unlike his co-stars, Joseph Morgan will not be reprising his role as Hope’s father Klaus Mikaelson.

Speaking to TV Guide, Morgan said: “No never, never. You’re never going to see it.

“You can hold your breath as long as you want. You know why? I have The Originals box set on my shelf, and it’s a beautiful thing because it’s five DVD sets that are a complete story from beginning to end of this guy, Klaus Michaelson — well, starting back in The Vampire Diaries Season two.

“So, I just feel like to come back as a ghost or a flashback or something, for me, that journey, that story has ended.

“That’s the complete story, and it just doesn’t feel right to me to do that.”

What will happen in Legacies season 3?

The second series came to an abrupt end as a result of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, which means there is a lot to resolve in the show’s third outing.

At the end of season two, Hope (Danielle Rose Russell) was left in a sleep state and Landon (Aria Shahghasemi) was stabbed by the golden arrow, with his life left hanging in the balance.

Ever since fans have been waiting to find out whether Hope will awake from her slumber and if Landon survives.

This season, fans will also be treated to a special musical episode in tribute to the Vampire Diaries and The Originals.

Showrunner Julie Plec confirmed the news in a tweet which read: “If we don’t eventually complete and air the musical episode I will (metaphorically, not literally) die. So I think we’ll be fine.”

Is there a trailer for Legacies season 3?

Yes, thankfully there is a trailer for Legacies season three.

The trailer begins with a clip of Hope still asleep and a male voice overheard saying: “I’m sorry it came to this.”

Another voice can then be heard saying “She won’t wake up” as the trailer cuts to scenes of a pub brawl.

The trailer comes to an end Lizzie asking ‘Where the hell is Hope Mikaelson when you need her?’

Luckily, fans do not have long to wait to find out.
