Daniel Gillies in on board. So is Phoebe Tonkin and Claire Holt and, of course, Joseph Morgan.
But might we see some of our favorite Mystic Falls residents make their way to New Orleans on The Originals?
Speaking on The Vampire Diaries spinoff to E! News, Morgan confirmed that a few TVD favorites will be crossing over now and then to the upcoming series, assuming it is picked up by The CW of course.
"There are going to be characters that cross over between the two worlds," Morgan said, adding that "the whole world is going to be richer" on the new series and saying of Caroline in particular:
"It would imagine all the fans that have been so generous to me are going to want to see what happens with Caroline... I feel like I owe it to the fans for there to be some resolve and for her to possibly turn up in New Orleans at some point. I know there's already talks about different characters that can come over to New Orleans and then go back."
What do you think of this possibility, TVD Fanatics? Will it take away from the original series? Make it too confusing to follow? Is it unfair to ask fans to now tune in for two shows in order to follow various storylines?
Or is it simply an awesome idea?
