The Legacies finale will not only mark the end of the drama's four-season run, but will also be the end of The Vampire Diaries universe. But before closing the door on Mystic Falls, a fan-favorite character from The Vampire Diaries and The Originals is set to return to The CW.
Joseph Morgan, who played Klaus Mikaelson on both The Vampire Diaries and its first spinoff, The Originals, revealed during an Instagram Live that he would be returning for a "very secret, very clandestine scene."
"I don't know if I've got permission to do this," Morgan said. "I don't know if I need it, to be honest with you. Regardless, we're here now, so I'm going to tell you a couple of things right now: You are going to see Klaus again in the final ever episode of Legacies."
Prior to confirming his involvement, Morgan had been dropping hints on social media, leading fans to speculate that he would be making a surprise cameo as Klaus, the father of Legacies' character Hope Mikaelson. Although Morgan said his cameo would only be a "fleeting moment," he promised the return would be worth it for fans looking for closure on Klaus and Hope's relationship. "This is about family. Family is power. This is about a father and his daughter, their relationship, what he feels he owes to her," he teased.
Fans quickly took to Twitter to celebrate Morgan's return.
