Chris Wood (Supergirl) is set to reprise his Vampire Diaries role, Kai Parker on its spinoff on the CW Legacies.
Wood famously played Kai, Jo’s evil twin, in The Vampire Diaries’ sixth season exiled to a shadow world in order to stop him fulfilling the Gemini Twin curse before returning in the show’s eighth and final season.
Kai is most famous for murdering his pregnant twin sister on her wedding day, and then putting Elena under a sleeping spell that linked her life to her best friend Bonnie.
The Saltzman twins are of course Kai’s nieces and therefore Gemini Twins which means that, just like Kai, they will experience the Merge on their 22nd birthday. In an earlier interview with EW showrunner Julie Plec dropped major hints:
“It’s so rude of me and so presumptuous, but I am just going to keep layering in Kai Parker until Chris Wood feels like he’s got no choice but to come back and play in our sandbox. I would love nothing more than to see that character again. I think he’d drop perfectly into this story line. I’m going to keep my fingers crossed and hope that I can make that work out one of these days.”
Wood will first appear in the 12th episode of season 2, which is set to air in February.
Legacies airs on Thursdays at 9 p.m. ET on the CW.
