However long it takes? While some former The Vampire Diaries stars are more than ready to have their iconic characters return on the CW’s Legacies, not everyone is looking to come back.
Blue Jackets' Dean Kukan expected to miss eight weeks with wrist fracture
While not a key player for Columbus, Kukan’s injury will certainly weaken the depth of the blue line as the team continues to try to compete in the difficult Metropolitan Division. Adam Boqvist is also dealing with a minor injury, necessitating the recall of Bayreuther who will be the eighth defenseman on the active roster.The 27-year-old Bayreuther has just 28 games at the NHL level in his career but is a well-respected minor league veteran who can step into the lineup in a pinch. In five games with the Cleveland Monsters this season, he has three points.
The second spinoff of the hit supernatural series follows the story of Hope Mikaelson (Danielle Rose Russell) during her time at the Salvatore School for the Young and Gifted. Matt Davis reprised his longtime role as Alaric Saltzman, a mentor to Hope and the headmaster of the school. His and Caroline Fobes’ (Candice King) daughters, Josie Saltzman (Kaylee Bryant) and Lizzie Saltzman (Jenny Boyd), also help Hope with the various mythical beings that wreak havoc for the teenagers throughout the show.
Although there have been small mentions of characters from TVD lore, creator Julie Plec previously revealed that there will be many more where that came from.
“We are going to try and do that as often as we can without making false promises about who we might see. I would love to be able to deliver on that as much as possible,” Plec said during an interview with Entertainment Tonight in October 2019. “I can say that I love being able to bring in characters from the first two shows [The Vampire Diaries and The Originals]. It’s always great to see these actors again in our crew family.”
Saved by the Bell Reboot: Old Rivalries and Romances Are Renewed in Season 2 Trailer
Season 2 of the Saved by the Bell reboot premieres Nov. 24 on Peacock "I can't wait to start junior year," Daisy (Haskiri Velazquez) says in the new clip, while Aisha (Alycia Pascual-Peña) notes, "Last year, you changed this place." "I got people to care about important stuff, not just Bayside nonsense," Daisy says — but she's sidetracked by Mac (Mitchell Hoog) tossing a water balloon at his dad, OG Saved by the Bell character Zack Morris (Mark-Paul Gosselaar). "Oh boy, here we go," Daisy says.
As the door remains open, not only in the dialogue, showrunner Brett Matthews later noted that it was up to the former cast members to make that return possible.
“If any of the actors from our past ever called us and we had the right story, we’d do it in a second,” Matthews detailed to TV Insider in January 2021. “There’s always a chance, and if any did, I wouldn’t want to spoil those things. If anybody’s dying to come back and dip a toe back into this universe, just tell them to call me.”
Legacies has welcomed many familiar faces, including Jeremy Gilbert (Steven R McQueen), Kai Parker (Chris Wood) and Jo Loughlin (Jodi Lyn O’Keefe).
But for Joseph Morgan, the idea of coming back as Hope’s father doesn’t sound exciting after he first originated the role of Klaus Mikaelson in season 2 of The Vampire Diaries. Following his character’s death in his own spinoff series, The Originals, the Brave New World alum admitted that he found that to be the perfect ending for his character.
“No never, never. You’re never going to see it. You can hold your breath as long as you want,” Morgan explained during an interview with TV Guide in October 2020. “You know why? I have The Originals box set on my shelf, and it’s a beautiful thing because it’s five DVD sets that are a complete story from beginning to end of this guy, Klaus Michaelson — well, starting back in The Vampire Diaries Season 2.”
Jimmie Allen Delivers Emotional, Tear-Filled Acceptance Speech After Winning CMA Awards’ New Artist Of The Year
Jimmie Allen is having an amazing year, and the “Best Shot” singer capped it off by winning the New Artist of the Year honour at the 2021 CMA Awards, held Wednesday, Nov. 10 in Nashville. Despite the award, the 36-year-old singer is no newcomer to the music scene, having struggled for years before breaking through and gaining the recognition that had so far eluded him within the past few years. Allen delivered a tear-filled acceptance speech, beginning by thanking his late father for "introducing him to country music." He continued by looking back at the years of dedication and hard work that came before winning his CMA Award.
