Legacies, the second spin-off from The Vampire Diaries after The Originals, premiered quite a pilot at NYCC. Now, with its first exposure to humanity out of the way, the show can let loose with a trailer highlighting the entire upcoming season.
There’s a little bit of faux-Quidditch, a little bit of hot-dad headmaster Alaric Saltzman (Matthew Davis), and a whole lot of the supernatural student body at The Salvatore School. Especially from the heroine Hope Mikaelson (Danielle Rose Russell), who’s a blend of just about every magical being you can imagine.

Is this just Riverdale with werewolves? The sheer amount of horniness in this trailer seems to say yes, but that’d be par for the otherworldly course in The Vampire Diaries-verse.
The implied factionalism between the races of supernatural creature bodes for an exciting, Deadly Class-like vibe between school and gang war, with Harry Potter’s benign House rivalry replaced by exes setting each other on fire because they can. It sounds awesome, is what we’re saying here.
Legacies bites into The CW on Oct. 25.
