“The Vampire Diaries” and “The Originals” fans are going to be very happy!
CW president Mark Pedowitz and executive producer Julie Plec have both confirmed the Salvatore-Mikaelson reunion over the span of 2 episodes in their latest seasons.
That’s right, fans of the dashing bloodsucking shows will get a weekly double dose of crossover in episode 14 of “The Vampire Diaries” and “The Originals” respectively.
Julie Plec told Variety that the reunion between Stefan and Klaus has been a long time coming but the timeline between the 2 shows had to happen organically.
“So we’re sitting in the room, and the plot point is that Stefan (Paul Wesley) is in trouble and he’s being pursued by means of magic so how can we get him safe? Well, let’s get him to a place where there’s no magic,” said Julie.
She continued, “And I was like, ‘Oh sh*t! St. James Infirmary! There’s a place where there’s no magic that can work in New Orleans!’ And the whole writer’s room just went, “Yay! Finally!” because they’ve been waiting so long for that opportunity.”
Julie added, “Stefan will go to New Orleans in a “Vampire Diaries” episode and then he will remain in New Orleans in “The Originals” to help Klaus deal with a problem that is super specific to Stefan’s survival.”
Where does Caroline fit in all this?
Julie did admit that Caroline will play a role in the crossover event but remained coy on the specifics. We have our fingers crossed that there will be room for a little Klaroline action.
