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!

‘Sex and the City’ Revival Officially Happening at HBO Max with Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon, and Kristin Davis
Grab your Cosmopolitan’s and your Manolo Blahnik’s because the Sex and the City is officially happening.
The start of 2021 may have been a little “meh,” but the revival news from HBO Max is here to turn things around.
On Sunday night, Sarah Jessica Parker, who will forever and ever be known as Carrie Bradshaw, posted a teaser to her Instagram page that confirmed a brand new season of SATC.
“I couldn’t help but wonder… where are they now? X, SJ @HBOMax@JustLikeThatMax#AndJustLikeThat #SATCNextChapter, ” the caption read.
The short clip is accompanied by Parker writing on a computer. The words “And just like that…” flash across the screen followed by “the story continues…”
Both Cynthia Nixon and Kristin Davis shared the video on their Instagram pages confirming that they will be reprising their roles of Miranda Hobbes and Charlotte York Goldenblatt, respectively.
And if that’s not enough confirmation… HBO Max put out a press release confirming that the upcoming 10-episode, half-hour season will give longtime fans a glimpse at this next chapter for the ladies.
“HBO Max has given a series order to AND JUST LIKE THAT…, a new chapter of the groundbreaking HBO series, Sex and the City, from executive producer Michael Patrick King and starring Sarah Jessica Parker, Cynthia Nixon and Kristin Davis,” the statement read.
“The new Max Original series is based on the book, Sex and the City, by Candice Bushnell and the original TV series created by Darren Star. The series will follow Carrie, Miranda and Charlotte as they navigate the journey from the complicated reality of life and friendship in their 30s to the even more complicated reality of life and friendship in their 50s,” it added.
Production is set to begin in the spring, so no release date has been announced for now.
But honestly, this is the best news we’ve heard in awhile.
Not even COVID can stop these ladies!
The only thing missing is Kim Catrall, who has been very clear over the years that she will never reprise her role of Samantha Jones.
The original series aired on HBO from 1998-2004. It was followed by two spin-off films that premiered in 2008 and 2010.
What do you think of the news? Are you pumped?
‘Riverdale’ Time Jump: Meet Veronica’s Husband (Nope, It’s Not Archiekins)
Changes are underway for our favorite Riverdale residents when season 5 premieres and this casting news is not going to sit well with “Varchie” fans.
The CW series cast The Perfectionists Chris Mason to play Veronica Lodge’s husband, Deadline reports.
Now, you might be wondering why Veronica has a husband in high school, but the series is planning to time jump several years once it wraps up the remaining episodes from season 4 that were delayed by the COVID pandemic, which include senior prom and graduation.
This all means that in those few years, Veronica and Archie called it quits. Maybe it had something to do with his feelings for Betty Cooper?
The casting also reveals that Ronnie will be making her way to the Big Apple following high school as Mason, who will play a Chad Gekko, is described as a Wall Street banker.
And you know how Archie is all easy-going and artistic? Well, that’s not Chad at all. Veronica’s husband is described as a “controlling and jealous alpha male.” Hmmm, sounds like Hiram Lodge, right?
“Chad is threatened by Veronica’s life in Riverdale, especially her friendship with Archie,” the official description notes.
With Chad and Veronica’s relationship already on the outs before it even had a chance to thrive, does that mean there’s a chance Veronica and Archie reconcile eventually?
While it’s unclear what the future holds, we also know that Vanessa Morgan’s real-life pregnancy is being written into the show. Is it a Choni baby? Or has Riverdale’s other favorite couple also broken up?
Mason is set to appear in the fourth episode of the series, which returns on Wednesday, January 20, and while we’re excited to see how senior year pans out and to finally solve the mystery of those VHS tapes, we also can’t wait to see what post-college life looks for everyone!
