In case you needed another reason to be excited for The Vampire Diaries spinoff...

Multiple sources confirm that fan favorite Daniel Gillies will reprise his beloved role of Elijah on both the April 25 backdoor pilot for The Originals AND the series itself, with Deadline reporting Gillies will be a regular cast member if the show is picked up for the fall.

Daniel Gillies as Elijah

The spinoff will find Klaus back in New Orleans and dealing with his diabolical protege, an uncast vampire named Marcel. Look for Elijah to side with Marcel's enemies in an attempt to keep Klaus in line and maybe even find redemption for his brother.

Phoebe Tonkin has also been confirmed for the series as Hayley, while The CW is casting for Camille, a human psychology student who will take an interest in Klaus as she tries to determine the basis for evil.

So... are now more excited for The Vampire Diaries spinoff? Will you watch it?
