'Legacies' Season 2 Premiere Date, Spoilers: What Will Happen After Hope's Disappearance, Alaric's New Replacement?
With the disappearance of Hope (Danielle Rose Russell) and unemployment of Alaric (Matthew Davis), someone new is coming to Legacies Season 2. There will be a new headmaster at the Salvatore Boarding School for the Young & Gifted with Alexis Denisof, who will play the role of Professor Vardemus.
"He is the new headmaster after a lengthy search headlined by Caroline Forbes," showrunner Julie Plec said about Denisof's new role, via Entertainment Weekly. She even praised Forbes for choosing a well-respected, experienced, and beloved man from England.
Denisof, on the other hand, revealed his character is from a "larger supernatural world that exists far beyond the gates" of Salvatore Boarding School. With that, Vardemus would bring his different point of view at the school.
His beliefs and opinions would put him at odds with some of Salvatore Boarding School's student that they even call him "Gary Poppins" in Legacies Season 2, per Plec. "You can imagine that someone who's a bit stiff and a bit proper and a bit opinionated might not go over as well as perhaps we would want him to," she added.
However, there will be a group of kids who will love Verdamus for who he is. There will also be another team that will start to wonder what makes him what he is. Aside from his intense stature, it will be fun to see him and Alaric trade banters over the teaching methods at the school.
So what happened in Alaric in the new season? Plec revealed the Episode 1 script's first line would feature a cut to "Alaric, hair, and beard growth: unemployed." He is now lost after being removed from his position as the school's headmaster.
Hence, there will be a lot of changes come Legacies Season 2. Hope is now locked away in a different dimension after she sacrificed herself to destroy Malivore. Nobody will know that she has existed, so how will she be saved?
Malivore will be a hard place for Hope to start over. Alaric will also find it hard not to hold any power that he used to, per CarterMatt. Fans will see him struggle and adapt to all of the changes that will happen to his life and at the school now that he is unemployed. So, it remains to be seen what will happen to them when Legacies Season 2 hits the small screens on Thursday, Oct. 10, at 9 p.m. ET on The CW.
