'Originals' Spinoff 'Legacies' Starts Filming Today!

It’s officially the first day of filming on Legacies, the third Vampire Diaries franchise television series!

Showrunner Julie Plec and star Danielle Rose Russell both shared a little, but dark, sneak peek at the set on social media.

“Today is the 1st day of shooting for the 3rd series in the #TVD universe. Welcome to #Legacies,” Julie wrote with a pic of the clapperboard.

“It’s less of a backdoor pilot and more of a preview of [Legacies],” she adds, talking to TVGuide about the first look at Legacies we’ll be getting on The Originals, which is in its’ final season. “We stay very much in the world of The Originals and of the people who are on our show, but it happens to sort of wander into the world that the new series will inhabit.”

Danielle added that you’ll maybe get a little peak at the new characters coming to the show in the preview episode next week.

“Throughout the season you’ve seen the writers sort of dabble in the magical boarding school, so in the backdoor pilot episode you do see a lot of that,” she shared. “You see a lot of focus on Mystic Falls as opposed to New Orleans. You see a lot of the people that [Hope] will come in contact with, a few in particular, so it’s a good episode that kind of teases what’s to come.”

We can’t wait to watch!

Day One.
