If you’ve been waiting for the day where Klaus Mikealson strolls back into Mystic Falls to pay his daughter, Hope Mikealson, and the Salvatore School — which he helped fund — a visit, well, don’t get your hopes up.
The first two seasons of Legacies have given us some grade-A guest stars from The Vampire Diaries and The Originals including Aunt Freya (Riley Voekel), Kai Parker (Chris Wood), and Matt Donovan (Zach Roerig). We even briefly saw Lizzie and Josie Saltzman’s birth mother Josette (Jodi Lyn O’Keefe).
But as for baddie Klaus Mikealson, the man who brought him to life, Joseph Morgan, doesn’t think he’ll ever reprise his role again.
And turns out, he has a really good reason!
TV Guide caught up with the actor to talk about his Peacock show, Brave New World, and when asked about guest starring on The CW teen drama, he bluntly and rapidly shut down the possibility.
“No never, never. You’re never going to see it.” Morgan said. “You can hold your breath as long as you want. You know why? I have The Originals box set on my shelf, and it’s a beautiful thing because it’s five DVD sets that are a complete story from beginning to end of this guy, Klaus Mikaelson — well, starting back in The Vampire Diaries Season 2. So I just feel like to come back as a ghost or a flashback or something, for me, that journey, that story has ended. That’s the complete story, and it just doesn’t feel right to me to do that.”
As much as we’d like to see Klaus in the flesh again, you have to admit that’s a satisfactory answer. It shows that Morgan cares enough about the character not to reprise him without a purpose or taint his legacy.
Klaus Mikealson’s story came to a fitting end in the series finale of The Originals when he redeemed himself for the greater good and sacrificed himself alongside his brother Elijah to save his daughter. Since then, Hope has carried on his legacy; his memory lives on as she mentions him pretty often and channels what he taught her to protect her friends and fight off a plethora of demons and monsters.
Morgan added that he felt like series creator Julie Plec understood where he was coming from.
“I think Julie [Plec] feels the same. It just feels like it would be strange, like a little forced,” Morgan continued. “Like I’m coming back just so we can see something else of him, but when we see it we go, ‘Ugh, that was it?’ And I don’t want his legacy to be, ‘Ugh.’ I don’t know what the scene could be that it would be exciting enough and epic enough after the journey that he’s had.”
Morgan may get a pass, but Candace Accola surely doesn’t. We’d love to see her reprise her role of Caroline Forbes considering she’s raising two daughters with Alaric but has yet to pay them a visit or help out with the school! Don’t let us down, Caroline!
The fact that she is still alive in the supernatural world and has such close ties to Mystic Falls but yet never comes to visit doesn’t paint her in a great light!
‘This Is Us’ Season 5 Trailer Teases New Beginnings, Kevin & Randall’s Fallout, Kevin’s Fiancee, and Face Masks
The 2-hour premiere of This Is Us is closer than ever!
Just a few days after NBC revealed the first trailer for the drama that reunites us with the Pearson family, they’ve given us a second, longer trailer that is more focused on the fallout between Randall Pearson (Sterling K. Brown) and Kevin Pearson (Justin Hartley) following their blow-out confrontation.
Will they find their way back? Will Kevin attempt to become a better brother? It may be a long road ahead, but it sure seems like it.
While there’s minimal new footage since the series just began shooting a few weeks ago due to COVID delays, it teases “a new chapter” for the family.
We see Randall celebrate his 40th birthday with wife Beth estranged from the rest of his siblings, who are celebrating together at the family cabin.
Kevin is seen walking to his car wearing a mask, which reveals that the series will be embracing the real-life coronavirus pandemic. It’s unclear how it’ll affect the family, but considering there’s a scene showing Kevin caressing Madison’s (Caitlin Thompson) growing baby bump, maybe the series will navigate pregnancy in a COVID-19 world. It’s likely easier to film certain scenes with more cast members if mask-wearing is permitted and deemed normal.
In a shocking twist, Kevin also calls her his “fiancee,” which prompts Kate Pearson (Chrissy Metz) to inform him that he needs to explain to use of the word fiancee.
Everything We Already Know About ‘YOU’ Season 3 on Netflix Including New Cast Members
Joe Goldberg, Will Bettelheim, or whatever we’re calling him these days, is only just getting started with you.
WARNING: stop reading if you don’t want spoilers for YOU Season 1 and Season 2!
The second season of the Lifetime-turned-Netflix series left on a pretty major cliffhanger: Joe is expecting a child with Love. Oh, and despite being confronted by someone equally as insane that made him realize his behavior and actions are completely unacceptable, he cannot help himself when he notices his new neighbor and his stalker-senses start tingling again.
Given all of that, it’s no surprise that the upcoming third season (which was renewed in early January) is highly-anticipated. It’s shaping up to be even more intense than the first two seasons combined.
The stakes are much higher now that a child is involved, Joe is being held accountable for his actions by Love, and much to his dismay, he’s stuck in a relationship with someone he’s not even in love with.
So, here’s what we know about the third season of YOU.
- You’re going to binge-watch it – HA, okay, that was just a joke to see if you were paying attention. Of course, you’re going to binge-watch it.
- It will premiere in 2021 – Netflix has confirmed that. In other words, you have about a year to recover from the insanity that was season 2.
- Production has already kicked off – Showrunner Sera Gamble took to Twitter to share that “We’ve started work on season 3. Just thought you’d want to know.” And yes, we did want to know, so thank you, Sera.

- It will be 10 episodes – Both seasons have consisted of 10 episodes so why fix something that isn’t broken, am I right?
- You’ll see some familiar faces – Badgley will obviously reprise his character as stalker Joe, while Victoria Pedretti will return as his psycho baby momma Love Quinn.
- Who are the new cast members? – Shalita Grant joins as Sherry, a “Mom-fluencer” who appears down to earth but is really a mean girl pretending to invite Love into her circle. Travis Van Winkle will play Cary, a wealthy guy who invites Joe into his circle. Sounds ominous. And if we know anything about Joe and Love, this isn’t going to end well for either Sherry or Travis.
- Will Ellie be back? It’s not confirmed, but I’m crossing my fingers that we’ll also see Jenna Ortega return because we need a wellness check on that girl!
- The dream team is returning – Not Joe and Love… never Joe and Love. We’re talking about Sera Gamble and Greg Berlanti who delivered some twisted television magic.
- Can I crush on Joe? – Seriously, no. He’s a narcissistic murder no matter how great his jawline is. You all saw what happened to Delilah.
- The neighbor will be explored – Not much is known about the plot of season 3, but I reckon the object of Joe’s attention in those final moments is going to play a vital role. Even the season 3 announcement teased “see you soon, neighbor.” There are plenty of theories about who the mystery woman could be (Badgley debunked that it’s his mother, but do we believe him?), but I really want it to be Candace again. She can be like “hey, I’m still not dead.” Or maybe it’s Beck’s sister? Whoever it is, I don’t think it’s going to be anyone random.

- Is it based on a book? Maybe. The first two seasons were based on novels by Caroline Kepnes, although, the plot did stray from the book ever so slightly. Kepnes is currently writing her third book and close to being finished, but there’s no word if it will inspire the third season.
- Will Joe finally get what’s coming to him? I mean, I hope so. Whatever happened to the pee cup? How can no one tie any of these murders to him? Why does he keep getting away?
As you wait for the new season, you can binge-watch season 1 and 2 on Netflix.
And don’t forget to check out the funniest memes inspired by our dear Joe and his murderous tendencies.
Nostalgia Alert: ‘I Know What You Did Last Summer’ Reboot Ordered at Amazon
Amazon has officially ordered to series a reboot for I Know What You Did Last Summer.
Now, if the reboot was based off of 2020, the premise wouldn’t be all that thrilling because no one did anything this summer. Thanks, COVID.
But thankfully, the magic of television doesn’t have to abide by the real-world face mask and social distancing rules.
The reboot, like the 1997 slasher classic, will be loosely based on Lois Duncan’s 1972 of the same name.
In the young adult adaptation, it will focus on a group of teenagers who are stalker by a mysterious killer a year after a fatal accident on graduation night.
“The best horror franchises always have another scare coming, and this I Know What You Did Last Summer series from Sara Goodman is a perfectly twisted update to the iconic slasher movie,” said Albert Cheng, COO and co-head of television at Amazon Studios, per Deadline. “Any way you slice it, our global Prime Video customers will love this modern take on the fan favorite film.”
While we’re all for a modern retelling, we can’t help but yearn for some of the original cast members to reprise their roles.
After all, the thriller featured a star-studded cast of 90s heartthrobs including Jennifer Love Hewitt, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Ryan Phillippe and Freddie Prinze Jr.
We know Phillippe is busy working on the upcoming ABC mystery drama, Big Sky, but could we at least get 2 out of 4 to sign on for the reboot? Wishful thinking, we know.
