Legacies Season 4 Episode 18 to return in June for series finale

Fans of The CW’s Legacies are already not very happy about being in the middle of another hiatus, but the network put salt on the wound by cancelling the show altogether this week.

We confirm when Season 4 Episode 18 of Legacies will return, explain why The CW canceled the show, and provide an episode guide for the final season.

Created by Julie Plec for The CW, Legacies first premiered in 2018 as a spin-off to The Originals, which in turn, was a spin-off to The Vampire Diaries, starring Danielle Rose Russell, Aria Shahghasemi, Kaylee Bryant, Matt Davis, Jenny Boyd and more.

Legacies Season 4 Episode 18 return date

Legacies Season 4 Episode 18, titled By the End of This, You’ll Know Who You Were Meant to Be, will serve as the third-last episode, airing on Thursday, June 2, 2022, at 9/8c on The CW.

Episode 18 will be directed by Lauren Petzke and written by Thomas Brandon. 

Legacies is currently on a month-long hiatus after Episode 17 premiered on May 5 and The CW has not issued a reason why. CarterMatt believes it may be so that Walker can be paired with Legacies on the June schedule, but for now, fans will need to watch repeats on the network. 

The CW cancels Legacies

The CW confirmed on Thursday, May 12, 2022, that Legacies was canceled and would not be returning for a fifth season – as fans were hoping. 

The CW canceled the following series: Roswell, New Mexico, In the Dark, Charmed, 4400, Naomi and Dynasty, and Legacies.

Batwoman and Legends of Tomorrow were also canceled by the network shortly before, much to the disappointment of fans.

It was reported by TV Line that The CW axed many of its long-running shows because of the network’s upcoming sale, making its future uncertain.
