Vampire Diaries’ legacy (pun intended) is a long one. It started with the iconic CW show, which then gave birth to its spin-off The Originals, which then resulted in Legacies. That was until the CW abruptly cancelled the latter, effectively ending the long running supernatural franchise.

But now, the Vampire Diaries boss Julie Plec has revealed that there is more to come from the world of Mystic Falls.

In a conversation with Entertainment Weekly, she revealed how the cancellations affected her and her crew and what the plans for the future entail.

“What I felt in the moment was concern for the hundreds and hundreds of people who’d just lost their jobs across three of my shows,” she said of the cancellations.

“We did 331 episodes of television and a lot of people that worked on season 1 of Vampire Diaries worked on season 4 of Legacies. There was such a beautiful family that we were able to build in Atlanta across these three shows. To think that that’s just gone now is sad.”

But fans can cling on to the hope that Plec and her team are not done telling stories from that world yet, and that there are more spin offs on the horizon.

“We had a plan to keep the franchise on the air until the next instalment, which exists in our brains, but not on the page yet,” she said.

“There will be another one,” Plec confirmed. “We’re a little sad, we’re going to take a beat, but yeah, there’s more ideas. There’s more to do.”

Now, it’s just a matter of seeing what it will be and where we’ll be able to see it come to life.

Legacies airs on The CW in the US.
