The US fantasy drama series, ‘Legacies’ first premiered on October 25, 2018. The spin-off of the hugely popular vampire series “The Originals” takes forward the story of Hope Mickelson, which we encountered in the final season of the Originals. The CW show has an IMDB rating of 7.5, with TV.com giving it a greater rating of 8.9. The Tomatometer is fresh as well with an average audience rating of 84%.
The second season of the legacies premiered on October 10, 2019. The latest episode of the second season was released on May 26, 2020. Unfortunately, the next episode could not be released due to incomplete work. The season was scheduled to be released with a total of 20 episodes but we are still away from four more.
Is it because of the pandemic? Let’s get into quick details.
When Will Season 2 Episode 17 of Legacies Will Be Released?
All the legacies fans have become so frustrated and furious after CW released up to the 16th episode and no confirmation of any schedule for the next one. The reason for such inconvenience is COVID-19.
#Legacies fans! Tonight, after some herculean efforts by our post production team (have YOU ever tried mixing an episode from home???), we will air our "Spring Finale" (aka ep 216). More episodes to come as soon as we all go back to work! But until then, #StayHomeSaveLives.

The post-production works are still not finished as said by Julie Plec who is the creator of the show. While the team is doing their best to finish the work from home this still is a huge task. Shutting down of production has to lead to losses by many tv shows. While the production remains halted the delay is to be expected. We are looking at a few month’s delay for the next episode, which won’t be the last certainly.
Was Episode 16 the Last of Season 2?
While we already talked about the bad news, there is a piece of good news as well. Legacies have already been renewed for a 3rd season, so we could be assured that we are going to get the full Season 2.
What Happened in Episode 16?
The previous episode was titled ‘Facing Darkness Is My Kinda Thing’. The story gives a clear idea about Josei’s situation. It seems he might be in a possession state. There is a whole lot of dark magic happening around. There we saw many major deaths as well.
Legacies are now streaming on Netflix. You can rewatch it all if you want to before episode 17 comes out.
