The CW's fall season gets underway tonight, and the network has given an early vote of confidence in its trio of new fall dramas. 

Five more scripts have been ordered for Charmed and All American, while The Vampire Diaries/The Originals spinoff, Legacies has garnered an order for three additional scripts. 

Help Me, Please! - Legacies Season 1 Episode 1

The CW ordered all three shows to series in May. 

Legacies takes place at the Salvatore School from the Young and the Gifted. The school was formed on the series finale of The Vampire Diaries by Caroline Forbes and Alaric Saltzman. 

Matt Davis is slated to return as Alaric, while The Originals' Danielle Rose Russel will reprise her role of tribrid Hope Mikaelson.

It picks up two years after The Originals Season 5 and will take on a monster of the week format, which is different from the heavily serialized nature of the two shows that came before it.

It stars Melonie Diaz, Sarah Jeffery, and Madeleine Mantock as the three leading witches. 

Finally, All American follows a high-school football star from South Los Angeles who’s recruited by Coach Billy Baker to play for Beverly Hills High. There, he must navigate a very different life to the one he had while living with his family.
