Hot on the heels of The Vampire Diaries’ Michael Trevino making his first crossover appearance on The Originals, it was announced today that a familiar face would be making his way back to Mystic Falls. The Original big bad hybrid Klaus (Joseph Morgan) is heading to his old stomping grounds.
That’s right – the star of the successful spinoff series – will be the first cast member to return to TVD. We have to admit we were surprised when TV Guide exclusively broke the news. The powers-that-be have been pretty tight-lipped about future crossovers between the two series and Klaus has been quite busy in New Orleans with his family, witches, wars and that magical miracle baby.
So what brings him back and when? That is a mystery. The CW and WBTV declined to comment to TV Guide so we’re left to speculate. Could his return have something to do with Tyler? Maybe Klaus wants more payback after their latest showdown. But we doubt Tyler is enough to warrant our favorite hybrid making the journey.
It’s probably a safer bet that his return has something to do with Caroline or his bestie/frenemy Stefan. Again, it seems doubtful that Klaus would pop into town just to play catch up so whatever brings him back must be pretty important.
What do you guys think? Are you excited that Klaus is coming back or do you prefer the shows keep to themselves? Hit the comments and let us know!
