Legacies Season 2: What the series is about?
Legacies is set two years after the events of The Originals and follows Hope Mikaelson, the daughter of Hayley Marshall and Klaus Mikaelson. Marshall is from a long line of vampires, witches and werewolves.
She is a student at Salvatore School for the Young and Gifted where young people with supernatural powers are trained to control their powers and abilities.
Legacies Season 2 plot
Legacies Season 2 will pick up where Season 1 left off after Hope declared her love for Landon (Aria Shahghasemi) just before she sacrificed herself to stop Malivore (Douglas Tait).
Fans watched in horror, disbelief, and shock as Hope threw herself off the edge into the darkness below and entirely erased herself from existence.
She offered herself because, as a werewolf, vampire and witch mix, only she could save the world from the rise of Malivore.
Fans are excitedly looking forward to Legacies Season 2 to see whether Hope is really dead. Many fans believe she couldn’t have died since she is the leading character.
If that assumption is true then fans want to see how Season 2 resolves the issue of her apparent demise.
