Nathaniel Buzolic set to return as Kol, Sonja Sohn cast in The Originals

'The Originals' Season 2: An Old Favorite Will Return, a Bewitching New Role Is Cast


Our favorite fall shows may currently be on summer hiatus, but 'The Originals' is wasting no time in dishing out some bloody good details about its upcoming second season.

For starters...Kol will be coming back!

Though he's been facing some pretty serious afterlife woes in 'The Vampire Diaries,' Klaus and Elijah’s baby bro — played by the always dreamy Nathaniel Buzolic — is set to resurface sometime this fall in a flashback scenario, which will give fans an even better look into the twisted lives of the Mikaelson family.

This will be the actor's second time on the show, having also appeared in the pilot last fall.

However, the exciting news doesn't stop there. E! Online has exclusively learned that a new character will be coming to the Big Easy in a very bewitching role.

The series has cast 'The Wire' star Sonja Sohn in a recurring capacity for the Season 2 installment, where she'll play the part of Lenore — a powerful salt-of-the-Earth witch in New Orleans who will prove to be quite the formidable foe for Klaus (Joseph Morgan).

But she won't be the only new witch in town. As previously reported, 'Teen Wolf' fan favorite Daniel Sharman will also be joining the supernatural cast next season as Kaleb — a handsome and devilishly charming new witch in the French Quarter's coven who is intent on wreaking havoc, wooing women, and causing as much chaos as possible. We would expect nothing less.

Having recently been moved to Mondays at 8/7c, 'The Originals' will kick off its second season on a brand new night in October, followed by The CW's brand new (and first) comedy, 'Jane the Virgin.'
