It’s been more than four years since Klaus Mikaelson and Caroline Forbes have appeared together on screen — not counting that Vampire Diaries phone call, of course — so fans are understandably eager for the duo’s reunion in the upcoming final season of The Originals.
The Originals officially wrapped production on its series finale in Atlanta earlier this week, but a few key scenes still needed to be shot in the show’s homeland of New Orleans.
Klaus Mikaelson and Caroline Forbes-Salvatore may be crossing paths sooner than either of them expected.
Candice King will reprise her Vampire Diaries role on The Originals‘ fifth season premiere, TVLine has learned exclusively. Unfortunately, no further details about King’s appearance, slated to air sometime in 2018, are available.
While it’s possible that Caroline will make the trek from Mystic Falls to New Orleans, it’s also entirely likely that her scenes will take place at the Salvatore Boarding House, where Klaus’ daughter Hope is enrolled. (In other news, Season 5 will begin with a major time jump, complete with a new actress playing teenage Hope.)
To say that Caroline has a complicated history with the Mikaelsons would be an understatement. Following a tumultuous romance in Seasons 3 and 4 of The Vampire Diaries, Caroline and Klaus eventually reunited (albeit over the phone) in Season 7. A key moment in the show’s series finale involved Klaus gifting his old flame with a hefty donation for her and Alaric’s supernatural school.
At the time of the TVD finale, executive producer Julie Plec told TVLine that Klaus’ donation was a “wish, not a promise. … I think The Originals has the opportunity to visit with some of these characters, and I think there are future shows down the line that can be spawned out of this world and could tell good stories.” (Wish granted!)
The CW released a deleted Steroline scene from the series finale. Enjoy!
