There is no denying at the moment that a lot of CW viewers are devastated.Legacies was canceled after four seasons this week, and it is far from the only show to get the axe. A total of seven series was axed this week alone, but thats without mentioningLegends of TomorrowandBatwoman.In total, the network lost a substantial portion of its schedule, mostly because to top decisions. There are discussions about a sale, and it is a relatively blank slate.
In a blog on Twitter, executive producer Julie Plec noted that both of her shows (which also includesRoswell, New Mexico) will have a successful conclusion thanks to a warning coming down from the top in advance:
Mark Pedowitz and his club at The CW had the [and] power to warn the shows that they might not survive, even if The CW wanted them. Because of that, both shows were meticulously selected to perform as series finales.
We wish that Legends of Tomorrow had a solid finish, but there was either confidence or hope that the series would come back. In the case ofLegacies, the finale here might be something more than just the end of the series. It is functionally, the beginning of an era that dates back to the very start ofThe Vampire Diaries. This franchise has been a part of the network for a total thirteen years.
