The Originals is getting their own web series, and Nathaniel/Nate Buzolic is returning as Kol! E! Online has the scoop;

Double the Kol, double the fun.
Don’t say The Originals’ creative team doesn’t listen to their fans because they’re about give many of them exactly what they’ve been asking for: More Kol Mikaelson! E! News can exclusively reveal that the CW hit is launching a four-part digital series, The Originals: Awakening, sponsored by Target and centering on the youngest Original brother, with Nathaniel Buzolic reprising the fan favorite role. (Daniel Sharman currently plays the character on the series. It’s a whole body-jumping witch thing.) We’ve also got your first look at Buzolic, who appeared via flashback in a recent episode, back in action.

Of returning to the role that scored him legions of loyal fans, Nathaniel Buzolic exclusively tells us he’s “excited for fans to see a little more of Kol, the most misunderstood member of the Mikaelson family.” Spoken like a true misunderstood Mikaelson family member!

Awakening will premiere on Monday, Nov. 10 on cwtv.com during the east coast airing of The Originals, with new episodes rolling out each Monday. With the series paralleling The Originals’ storylines, fans can expect Awakening to directly tie into the midseason finale, airing on Dec. 8.

So what’s the digital series about exactly?
We’re flashing back to 1914, with Kol on a quest to form an alliance with the witches of the French Quarter. And Awakening will gives fans answers to some major burning questions about Kol’s past, including how and why he found himself up against his siblings, why he was daggered and the unique backstory he has with the NoLa witches.

Carina MacKenzie, a writer on The Originals, penned the Kol-centric series, telling us she was excited to delve into Kol’s mischievous nature and previously untapped backstory.
“When we found out we were going to get to do a web series, I immediately thought of Kol—because his mischief has always been part of the fabric of the city. We know from The Vampire Diaries that Kol has a history with the witches of New Orleans, and we’ve kept that in mind since the very beginning of The Originals,” she said. “In the web series fans will get to see how some events of last season can actually be traced back to Kol, and we’ll reveal some clues as to his current agenda with Davina. Thanks to some body-swapping hijinks, we’ve got Daniel Sharman playing the character on the show now, but we’re always super excited when we can bring Nathaniel Buzolic in for flashbacks. I had a great time working with him— he’s hilarious, and just steps right back into Kol so brilliantly. And he’s a really, really good sport about getting positively drenched in fake blood.”

The Originals airs Mondays at 8 p.m. on the CW. The Originals: Awakening, sponsored by Target, will premiere Monday, Nov. 10 on cwtv.com.




Kara: I’m so excited to see Nina Dobrev on The Originals!
Probably not as excited as we are, especially after we spoke with Joseph Morgan about how the original doppelganger Tatia affected Klaus and Elijah all those years ago. “We’re really grateful to Nina for coming over to The Originals and for allowing us to finally tell that story,” Morgan said. “I think it needed to be told. It definitely had a huge impact on who the brothers are today and their family in general. Klaus and Elijah both were certainly interested and invested in Tatia because they both loved her. It’s absolutely going to give us more insight into their relationship because we’re going to see how that love changed their family and how it all played out. The story that they told back on The Vampire Diaries is not exactly what went down and now we’re going to find out what really happened.”

Here are the screencaptures of The Vampire Diaries’ Black Hole Sun (6×04)” in 1080p quality






I’m loving the family reunion on The Originals, but will we ever see Cami or Davina again? — Beth
We, too, miss some of the (pun alert!) original cast. Fortunately, Charles Michael Davis tells us that as Marcel becomes more present in episodes to come, so will those ladies. “Davina and Cami are growing a lot stronger,” he says. “But the relationship has changed because Marcel isn’t necessarily there to protect or control them.” Bonus scoop: Davis adds that Marcel and Hayley will finally begin working together. “Klaus calls Hayley the wolves’ queen and Marcel is declaring that he’s the king, so there’s a mutual respect there for the royalty,” he says.

TV Guide has shared an interesting spoiler for The Vampire Diaries. We will be seeing some familiar faces soon!

Any more scoop on The Vampire Diaries? — Makayla
Get ready to see some old familiar faces when two characters (and no, we’re not talking about Bonnie and Damon) return to the show. As for this week’s big ’90s flashback, not only will you get to see Damon flirting with a young (and long-haired!) Liz Forbes, but you can also expect a major hint about sketchy newcomer Sarah’s past. (It could even link her to the Salvatores.)
