LEGACIES is set for an epic Vampire Diaries and The Originals tribute with a season 2 musical episode.
The spin-off show is experimenting with a range of different standalone episodes, such as a video game and film-noir version.
Then on the 19th episode they will be introducing a musical themed episode.
"Episode 19 is our grand musical episode," executive producer Brett Matthews said to TV Guide.
"We try to do a musical a year, and it's a musical that will sort of revisit our legacies – the legacy of the show The Vampire Diaries and The Originals universe."
This isn't the first time Legacies has dabbled with the musical genre, as the first season saw the students of Salvatore School sing during a school talent show.
This will follow on from episode 14's film-noir episode, where the characters will be transported to a different world to deal with their traumas.
After the traumatizing events of episode 13, including Hope helping save Lizzie, Alaric and Dark Josie from the prison world, Alaric killing Kai and Sebastian choosing to die to save others, the characters need a break.
Guidance counselor Emma wants to help them deal with “their recent trauma,” she suggests a unique therapy technique.
The Season 2, episode 14 Legacies synopsis reveals: “Emma suggests the students participate in a group simulation that transports them to a film noir world.
“Hope, Josie, Lizzie, MG and Rafael quickly learn they must confront their conflicts head-on or risk facing the game’s catastrophic consequences.”
Legacies executive producer, and co-writer of this episode, Brett Matthews shared a little bit more of what fans can expect from this old-timey episode while chatting with Entertainment Tonight.
He said: “It's a group therapy exercise that kind of goes awry. It always starts and ends with the characters.
“…The discoveries and revelations that they experience in the film noir world will come to influence them on the other side, when we're back to our normally scheduled program.”
