This is a big week, Legacies fans. Season 2 is now in production, the stars are ready to start filming again, and the show will be giving fans some great teases this Friday, July 19 at Comic-Con. You heard that The Vampire Diaries and The Originals star Candice King will be moderating the Legacies Season 2 panel, right? Big Caroline Forbes hint there, I should hope.
Jenny Boyd plays Lizzie Saltzman on Legacies, and she already knows Candice King in real life. They haven't played mother and daughter on screen yet, but will that change in Legacies Season 2? Boyd thrilled fans for whatever is ahead with this quick script tease:
I'll take it! Mind-blowing scripts for the win. Of course, that has fans speculating about what she could mean -- specifically for Lizzie Saltzman or in general. Will Legacies Season 2 give Lizzie a Heretic storyline? Lizzie and Josie Saltzman (Kaylee Bryant) are Siphoners in the Gemini Coven, and Vampire Diaries fans remember The Heretics were originally Gemini Coven Siphoners who were exiled as abominations. They were later turned into witch/vampire hybrids. Will Legacies go down that road?
Some fans also asked Jenny Boyd if Lizzie would be getting a love interest on Legacies Season 2. That's not something she could really tweet about right now, but maybe we'll get teases on the romantic front this Friday through Comic-Con. The Vampire Diaries Universe ruler Julie Plec did say the 2019-2020 season would introduce a new -- but very old -- teenage vampire and I immediately pictured him in scenes with Lizzie. I think his chivalry would shock and charm her. Whatever happens there, I'm ready for it.
Legacies Season 2 should have a very interesting start, since Season 1 ended with the shocker of Hope Mikaelson (Danielle Rose Russell) sacrificing herself in the Malivore pit. We've been told she and Clarke (Nick Fink) will have a dynamic akin to Damon and Bonnie from The Vampire Diaries. But back at the Salvatore school, no one is going to remember Hope. Bringing her back into their lives -- through reminders and then somehow in person -- is going to take however long it takes. ("However long it takes," ahhh Klaroline.)
Julie Plec already said Hope's storyline in Legacies Season 2 might lend itself to bringing in more characters from The Originals. So we could/should/might see more of her Mikaelson family again. There are so many characters they could bring back, but fans also fell in love with the new characters introduced in Legacies Season 1. Will Penelope Park return from Europe? What will happen with Rafael in perma-wolf form? Will Landon no longer need saving, for once? Will he find a new love interest without Hope? How is MG doing with his potential as a Ripper? Will we ever see Emma again?
Also, is Alaric Saltzman going to stay headmaster? That's one of the many reasons why I'd like to see Caroline on Legacies. Alaric needs a break. Also, the twins need someone to stop them from accidentally freeing their Uncle Kai with that Ascendant.
Will we see Sheriff Matt Donovan again? What about Jeremy Gilbert? Can he return for more than just a cameo? Will I ever stop asking questions?
There's a lot to look forward to, and it starts this Friday with the Legacies team at Comic-Con. Legacies Season 2 will premiere Thursday, October 10 on The CW.
