Not only is a cable TV subscription not required, but you don’t even need to register for an account in order to watch content online. As such, you can watch Legacies season 2 online free on CW TV.

If you’re planning on watching Legacies season 2 from outside the US, you’ll need a VPN. That’s because The CW region-locks its content to comply with licensing restrictions. However, unblocking The CW abroad is as simple as connecting to a VPN server in the US.

Where else can I watch Legacies season 2 online?

While no other network will broadcast the Legacies season 2 premiere, there is a chance it will come to Netflix in the near future. After all, Legacies season 1 is already available on Netflix. Furthermore, Legacies is a spin-off of The Vampire Diaries which can also be found on Netflix, as can the other spin-off series, The Originals.

The CW can also be watched via the following streaming servicesAT&T TV Now (from $50 USD/month), Hulu with live TV ($44.99/month), and YouTube TV ($49.99/month). Free trials are available with all of these services though you’ll need a VPN to watch outside the US. However, there’s little point signing up with them to watch Legacies season 2 because you can watch it for free on The CW.

Can I use a free VPN to watch Legacies season 2 online?

You may struggle to find a free VPN that consistently unblocks The CW. Indeed, free VPNs are rarely able to bypass anti-VPN measures such as those implemented by Netflix. However, this isn’t the only problem you’ll encounter with a free VPN. Many such services have vastly reduced server networks. With so many users trying to take advantage of a free service, the result is slow speeds, particularly when live streaming and torrenting.

Free VPNs also pose a risk to your online security. Instead of protecting your data, some choose to collect it (this includes your browsing data) before selling it to third parties. Security features are often found lacking with no encryption to secure your data from snoopers and hackers. In contrast, the best-paid VPNs offer a whole host of features, including a strict no-logs policy, allowing you to browse the web anonymously.

What can we expect from Legacies season 2?

One of the key plot points to be resolved in Legacies season 2 is the fate of Hope after she jumped into the puddle in the season 1 finale. We’ll also see the impact that Hope had on other characters who, despite having had their memories erased of her, still have a feeling of being incomplete. There’s also some uncertainty as to whether we’ve seen the last of Malivore.

Speaking at San Diego Comic-Con 2019, executive producer Brett Matthews hinted of some fun, holiday-themed episodes with the possibility of an evil version of Cupid for Valentine’s Day as well as a Christmas episode with an “evil Santa Claus, or Krampus.”

Which cast members are returning for Legacies season 2?

The vast majority of the cast are expected to return for Legacies season 2. This includes Aria Shahghasemi (Landon), Kaylee Bryant (Josie), Jenny Boyd (Lizzie), Matthew Davis (Alaric), Quincy Fouse (Milton), and Peyton Alex Smith (Rafael). While Hope (Danielle Rose Russell) sacrificed herself to stop Malivore in the season 1 finale, we didn’t see her on-screen death which means there’s still a chance she’ll be back for season 2.

There’ll also be a number of new additions to the cast. This includes Thomas Doherty as Sebastian, Alexis Denishof (Professor Vardemus), Bianca Kajilch (Sheriff Mac), Leo Howard (Ethan), and Bianca Santos (Maya). The CW put out a casting call in 2018. Indeed, show creator Julie Plec took to Twitter in the hope of finding what she was looking for, having expressed disappointment regarding the first season casting process and “lack of curated submissions” from agents.
