Onesumore: When will ‘Legacies’ Season 3 be on Netflix?
Legacy is part of the massive collection of The CW shows that will return for another season, but with the caveat that they will air much later than usual. This is what we know Legacy season 3 and when you can expect the third season to air on Netflix worldwide.
In case you haven’t dived into the series, Legacy is a spin-off for The original which itself is a spin-off of The vampire Diaries (which are all on Netflix in most regions, excluding Legacy but not forever).
It stars Danielle Rose Russell as Hope Mikaelson who attends a new school where she can develop her supernatural abilities.
Seasons 1 and 2 are on Netflix in the US with Season 1 landing on April 5, 2019 and the second added on April 3, 2020.
It should be noted that only Netflix in the United States carries Legacy and as we’ll explore soon, the series is unlikely to hit Netflix internationally.
The CW will not be broadcast Legacy season 3 in its usual October slot. Instead, it was put back alongside the other titles on The CW’s slate. Indeed, the show’s production, just like most other shows, including Netflix’s slate, has been affected by the coronavirus outbreak.
Filming is expected to take place later in 2020 and instead started airing on January 21 with 16 episodes expected.
When Legacy will season 3 be on Netflix US?
Unfortunately, with its lag on Network TV, that means it will be lagging behind on Netflix as well.
The last two seasons each arrived on Netflix just eight days after the season finale and hit Netflix in April. Given the delay of almost three months (at least), it is likely Legacy Season 3 won’t be on Netflix until July-September 2021.
Plus, don’t worry, the show’s future is secure with a fourth season likely later this year.
Will Legacy coming to Netflix outside the US?
Show remains unsold in most areas despite Netflix streaming internationally The Vampire Diaries and The originals.
It’s not entirely uncommon, however, in recent years Netflix has placed more emphasis on its own originals that air worldwide rather than licensing certain American shows for international audiences.
We’ll let you know if that changes but at the moment it doesn’t seem likely. Most regions will probably have to wait Global rollout of HBO Max instead.
