A supernatural drama, the Legacies TV show stars Danielle Rose Russell, Jenny Boyd, Kaylee Bryant, Quincy Fouse, Aria Shahghasemi, Chris Lee, Leo Howard, Ben Levin, and Matthew Davis. This show is set in the Salvatore Boarding School for the Young and Gifted in Mystic Falls, a haven for supernatural beings to learn to control their impulses and abilities. The ongoing story follows a new generation of supernatural students (like vampires, witches, and werewolves) as they learn what it means to be special in a society that wouldn’t understand their gifts. They include Hope Mikaelson (Russell), Lizzie Saltzman (Boyd), Josie Saltzman (Bryant), MG (Fouse), Kaleb (Lee), and Landon Kirby (Shahghasemi). Josie and Lizzie’s father is Alaric Saltzman (Davis), the human headmaster of the school.
