A new MTV docuseries about the children of famous artists will air in 2023, and at least part of it will feature Draven Bennington, the son of late Linkin Park vocalist Chester Bennington.

The series will catch up with the kids of Van Halen’s Sammy Hagar, Backstreet Boys’ Brian Littrell, *NSYNC’s Joey Fatone, Boyz II Men’s Nathan Morris, TLC’s Chilli, Sean “Diddy” Combs, Brandy and Melissa Etheridge. Draven will be one of two subjects whose parent passed away, with the series also focusing on The Notorious B.I.G.’s kid as well.

Paramount+ subscribers got a sneak peek of the docuseries on December 19, when MTV aired a teaser special titled MTV’s Family Legacy: Special Moments, which featured five minute clips from all of the episodes.

Chester Bennington passed away on July 20, 2017 after committing suicide a private residence in Palos Verdes Estates in L.A. County. He was 41 years old and was survived by his wife Talinda Ann Bentley, and six children from two marriages.

MTV’s Family Legacy will not air until April 2023. For a sneak peek, check out Draven’s Instagram post below for a clip of his segment. There’s an additional clip below focusing on Melissa Etheridge’s daughter Baily Cypheridge.
