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 “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!
