'Legacies' Showrunner Julie Plec Reveals The Show Will Add a New Vampire

Legacies is getting a new vampire!

Showrunner Julie Plec recently revealed the news, but clarified it will in fact be a younger vampire.

“We’re really excited about a new character that we’re introducing. We really want to bring in an old, old, old-world vampire,” she told TV Guide. “We made the rule for our school that the vampires who go to our school actually need to be teenagers… not hundreds of years [old] because then you get into some creepy math.”

“But we want to introduce a vampire who kind of got desiccated when he was 17 in maybe the 15th century and now wakes up in the 21st century and realizes that all the rules of being a vampire have changed and that he does not fit in into this very modern world,” Julie added.

After Hope’s (Danielle Rose Russell) season one finale twist in Legacies, what can we expect going forward in season two?

Director and writer Julie Plec recently spilled all to TV Guide:

On whether or not all traces of Hope are really gone: “There is hope, and there is an actual pitch for that, so your brain is in the right place, creatively.”

On whether Malivore is dead now or she just prevented him from rising: “That is the question, I think, that we’re left with at the end of the season, which is ā€” technically if she had destroyed him, would she be destroyed in the process? Maybe not. So the fact that no one remembers her might mean that there’s still a blackness out there that is keeping her captive. And since we’ve already seen a glimpse of how s–ty that is, I hope that’s not the case.”

On Hope’s affect on the lives of everyone else: “That’s exactly what we can expect to see. What’s fun about it, and sad about it, is we’ll be able to realize just how much impact Hope had in these people’s lives without them even realizing what they’re missing. And just understanding that they all feel individually like there’s something that doesn’t feel right and that they’re struggling with this feeling of not being complete somehow. It just feels like such a universal experience, especially for teenagers. I’m looking forward to having each of those characters act out on that feeling.”

Season one of Legacies will be streaming on Netflix starting April 5.

Jeanine Mason and Nathan Parsons snap a photo together at the Roswell, New Mexico panel at New York Comic-Con on Saturday (October 6) in New York City.

The stars of the upcoming CW show were joined by producers Julie Plec, Brett Hollier, and Carina Adly MacKenzie.

At the panel, creator and EP Carina talked about the decision to reboot the show and make it current, and with a diverse cast.

“I wanted to make sure there was a reason to reboot it, and that it felt very grounded in 2018 and what we are dealing with presently, because the original show is available on Hulu and it’s really great,” she said, via THR. “There wasn’t a reason to update it unless we made it really current, and I think one of the important things I wanted to do was ā€¦ take Liz Parker back to Liz Ortecho, and create a show with a Latina lead and a really diverse cast.”
