Is Legacies on Netflix?
Legacies is a fantasy drama series created by Julie Plec and part of the larger Vampire Diaries franchise. It premiered in October 2018 and has since become a fan favorite, with each season receiving critical acclaim. But for those looking to stream the show, the question remains – is Legacies on Netflix? Let’s take a look at what we know about Legacies’ streaming availability.
What is Legacies?
Legacies is a series that originally aired on The CW network.
The show is a spin-off of The Vampire Diaries and The Originals, and follows the lives of the next generation of supernatural beings at the Salvatore School for the Young and Gifted. The main character is Hope Mikaelson, a teenage girl who is a tribrid (a being with vampire, werewolf, and witch ancestry).
Legacies has been acclaimed for exploring themes of friendship, love, and coming of age as the characters try to navigate their supernatural abilities and their place in the world.
In May 2022, the CW Network announced that it was cancelling the show after 4 seasons. There will be no fifth season of Legacies (at least for the foreseeable future).
Legacies only on Netflix in the US
Legacies is only currently available on Netflix in the US.
No other Netflix version such as Canada, UK or Australia has the rights to the show.
This is despite the fact that other shows from The Vampire Diaries franchise, such as The Originals, are available to stream in some regions. It’s possible that this might change in the future as more seasons of Legacies are released and become available for streaming.
Where else can I stream Legacies online?
The show is currently available for streaming on the CW network’s website and app, which can be accessed with a cable subscription or through certain live TV streaming services like Hulu + Live TV, YouTube TV, and AT&T TV Now (formerly DirecTV Now).
However, these options are also limited only to viewers within the United States.
How to stream Legacies outside the USA
For viewers located outside of the US who want access to Legacies without subscribing to a cable package or live TV service, there are still options available.
Certain regions have licensed versions of Legacies for streaming on their own local platforms – for example, it’s possible to find the show on Showmax in South Africa or M-Net in Nigeria – but these may not have access to all seasons of the show or may have different episodes than those found on The CW Network.
Do some research in your own region to see if there is a streaming service that carries the show.
Using a VPN to watch Legacies online
There are ways around these geo-blocking restrictions so that fans abroad can watch all the latest episodes of Legacies no matter where they’re located.
Our recommendation is to use a VPN (we recommend NordVPN) which will allow you to connect your device to an American server and access content from US-based streaming services like the CW Network even if you’re located elsewhere.
If you have a Netflix subscription already then you can connect to a US server and then head to Netflix and log in as usual. You will then have access to the US Netflix library and, importantly, Legacies.
This is an especially useful solution for those who don’t want to subscribe to an expensive cable package but still want access to all their favorite shows from around the world.
