How cometh this exciting news? BuzzFeed just published an article giving us a day-in-the-life perspective of The Vampire Diariesand The Originals executive producer Julie Plec. Though the article is full of interesting details and insights, it was the revelation that Julie is developing a web series for Kol that really jumped out at us. Jarett Wieselman mentions that, during the course of the day, Julie “approve[s] ideas for an upcoming web series starring Nathaniel Buzolic’s character, Kol” and mentions that “the web series is developing nicely.” Talk about burying the lede!
Kol has been a fan favorite since he first appeared on TVD as yet another emotionally-unstable and ridiculously good-looking Mikaelson. He was killed off in Season 4, but came back as a ghost in Season 5. He didn’t appear to make it in the collapse of the Other Side in the TVD Season 5 finale, but we still have our fingers crossed. We know he will be appearing in flashback form in The Originals’ Season 2, Episode 2 (“Alive and Kicking”). Will this serve as a launch for Kol’s web series? And will the web series be taking place entirely in the past or did Kol somehow cheat death — again?
Are you as excited as we are to hear Kol will be getting his own web series? Sound off in the comments below!
The Vampire Diaries Season 6 premieres Thursday, October 2, at 8 p.m. ET on The CW.
