Legacies is set to return soon and apparently, there is a new sheriff in town according to recent casting news. So what happened to Matt Donovan?
When Legacies was first being teased on The CW, Matt Donovan returning as the Mystic Falls sheriff was a pretty big deal. Fans of The Vampire Diaries were hoping to see as many connections to the parent series as possible. Many looked forward to seeing Matt pop up throughout the season.
Sadly for Matt fans, Zach Roerig only appeared in two episodes of the show. He had little to do and didn’t appear to have a story arc. That said, the door appeared open for him to return in the future when Roerig’s schedule allowed.
At least, until now. TVLine reports a new sheriff has been cast. Bianca Kajlich (Bosch) has been cast as Sheriff Mac. The article reports she has a troubled past but “she’s willing to open herself up to a new romance when the opportunity arises.”
