Starting in 2018, the series serves as a spin-off to The Originals which itself is a spin-off to The Vampire Diaries (both of which remain on Netflix for the foreseeable).
Among the cast for the spin-off includes Danielle Rose Russell, Aria Shahghasemi, Kaylee Bryant, and Jenny Boyd.
Season 4 returns to its regular slot on The CW in October after season 3 was delayed into January 2021 due to filming delays. It’s expected the new season will run for 16 episodes as per the three prior seasons.
Just a bit of housekeeping before we move on to when the series should arrive on Netflix.
At the time of publishing, season 3 of Legacies is still yet to find its way onto Netflix despite the fact the time it should’ve dropped has long passed. According to Decider, it is still scheduled to arrive so we’ll just have to wait and see as to when.
No season 5 announcement has come as of yet for Legacies. We’re expecting to hear an announcement in early 2022 for that.
How to watch Legacies season 4 before it arrives on Netflix
If you don’t want to wait until all 16 episodes get dropped on Netflix together, then you have two options.
The first option is to tune in every Thursday night to watch on The CW. It’s the old-school way but still the best way to watch new episodes live.
In addition, you can watch episodes the next day via The CW app for free.
When will Season 4 of Legacies arrive on Netflix?
As part of The CW’s contract with Netflix (which ended in 2019 but still covers Legacies), new seasons come to Netflix shortly after the series wraps.
That usually means the show comes to Netflix around 8-9 days after the season finale but that was not the case for season 3 as we mentioned above.
With that said, that deal should go back to normal in 2022.
Seasons 1 and 2 (which has the same release schedule as season 4) wrapped up in March and then came to Netflix in early April. That’s what we’re currently expected for season 4 meaning that season 4 of Legacies should be on Netflix in the United States in early April 2022.
Will Legacies be on Netflix Internationally?
Netflix hasn’t acquired any major titles from The CW in recent years and although it has relicensed The Vampires Diaries and The Originals, Legacies has not been picked up thus far.
In the UK, the show still remains unsold meaning there’s still no legal way of streaming it or even watching it on traditional television.
