“Though we’re just a few weeks into the new season, we wanted to get a strategic head start on next season with these early renewals, which allows our production teams to start laying out story arcs and hiring staff, and at the same time, continues to provide us with a strong, stable schedule to build on for next season,” CW President Mark Pedowitz said in a statement.

“As The CW’s 2020-2021 season kicks into high gear, we are thrilled creatively with the direction of our first new shows out of the gate, Walker and Superman & Lois, that we wanted to order the additional episodes to complete their first seasons, and we are particularly pleased with the huge success of the launch of Walker, which debuted as our most watched series premiere in 5 years.”

This Is How The Pandemic Affected The Upcoming Season of 'Legacies'

This Is How The Pandemic Affected The Upcoming Season of 'Legacies'

Legacies, like many, many other productions, was affected by the pandemic.

In a new interview, executive producer Brett Matthews opened up about how it affected the trajectory of the upcoming third season.

“It impacted it drastically, in one sense,” he told ComicBook.com. “I think I’d literally finished like writing the last line of Episode 20, which we thought was the finale when we had to shut down.”

“So, when we made the decision to sort of wind down the show for a year because we just didn’t feel like it was safe to continue so, like you said, luckily we were sort of able to engineer what feels like an ending and leave storylines in a good cliffhanger-y place in Episode 16,” Brett added. “But we sort of made the decision that we still wanted to give stories from Season 2 their proper conclusion so you will see, you know, certain things bleed over and play out over the first couple of episodes of Season 3 before we sort of begin the majority of the new material post-COVID in episode five.”

Legacies season three will pick up where season two left off for the first four episodes.

Tune in to the season premiere TOMORROW (January 21) at 9pm ET on The CW. Check out the episode synopsis here!

Joseph Morgan Says Klaus Mikaelson Will Never Appear on 'Legacies'

Joseph Morgan Says Klaus Mikaelson Will Never Appear on 'Legacies'

You can count Joseph Morgan out for a guest spot on Legacies.

The 39-year-old actor, who played Klaus Mikaelson (Hope’s dad), recently opened up about the possibility of him ever going back to Mystic Falls.

“No never, never. You’re never going to see it,” he told TV Line. “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 Mikaelson — well, starting back in The Vampire Diaries Season 2.”

“So I just feel like to come back as a ghost or a flashback or something, for me, that journey, that story has ended,” he added. “That’s the complete story, and it just doesn’t feel right to me to do that.”

“I think Julie [Plec] feels the same. It just feels like it would be strange, like a little forced,” Joseph continued. “Like I’m coming back just so we can see something else of him, but when we see it we go, ‘Ugh, that was it?’ And I don’t want his legacy to be, ‘Ugh.’ I don’t know what the scene could be that it would be exciting enough and epic enough after the journey that he’s had.”

If you remember, Joseph‘s Klaus actually died in the series finale of The Originals.

In case you missed it, this actor got promoted to series regular for the upcoming third season of Legacies!
