Joseph Morgan played the role of Klaus Mikaelson in The Vampire Diaries and The Originals (a spinoff of TVD). The Vampire Diaries first aired back in 2009 and ended three years ago, in 2017. Alongside The Vampire Diaries, its spinoff show was also airing “The Originals”. It first aired back in 2013 and ended in 2018.
Klaus Mikaelson was a major character in The Vampire Diaries for three seasons. He was an original Hybrid having abilities of an Original vampire and a werewolf. Originally known as Niklaus Mikaelson, he was the biological son of Ansel, a werewolf and Esther Mikaelson, a witch. He was first mentioned in season 2 of The Vampire Diaries. Till Season 4 of The Vampire Diaries, the Originals stick to Mystic Falls. After Season 4, The Originals family leaves for New Orleans and there is no mention of them in The Vampire Diaries till Season 7.
On reaching New Orleans, a new plot twist was revealed that Klaus has an unborn child. The story continues in The Originals TV series. There are five seasons of the series. The show’s prime focus was on The Original’s family and protecting Klaus’s child. However, in season 5 of The Originals, Klaus Mikaelson sacrifices himself in order to protect his daughter.
A spinoff of The Originals was developed by Julie Plec that follows Hope Mikaelson, a tribrid and the Salvatore School for the gifted. The school was made in the memory of Stefan Salvatore who died in the last season of The Vampire Diaries.
Will Klaus Mikaelson Appear in Legacies?
Legacies introduced some old cast along with a bunch of new casts. Matthew Davis, who plays Alaric Saltzman, is the headmaster of the school. Caroline appeared in the show too though she didn’t get much screentime. Legacies gave us a bunch of cameos like Freya Mikaelson appeared in the show and Kai Parker, a former villain from The Vampire Diaries was a major villain in season 2 of Legacies.
While fans are demanding the return of Damon Salvatore and Elena Gilbert, they are also demanding a cameo of Klaus Mikaelson. On this Joseph Morgan responded:
No never, never. You’re never going to see it.
I think Julie Plec feels the same. It just feels like it would be strange, like a little forced. 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.
