Yusuf Gatewood Promoted to Series Regular on The Originals

at . Comments

At the conclusion of The Originals Season 2 Episode 7, Finn Mikaelson was apprehended by the team of Hayley, Cami, Aiden and Josh, ending the hour across from his captive brother in some magic handcuffs.

But it looks as if Finn will either escape from this predicament, or Vincent will stick around after Finn has left his body, because Yusuf Gatewood has been promoted to series regular for at least the duration of The Originals Season 2.

"We’re thrilled to annouce that Yusuf Gatewood has been promoted to series regular as of this winter,” executive producer Julie Plec tells EW. “In addition to his incredible talent, he has been a joy to work with - committed, passionate, professional, kind and inspiring. We’re honored to have him as part of the family."

Looking ahead to The Originals Season 2 Episode 8, meanwhile, it appear that Finn may be in for an unexpected family reunion.

Oh, yes, Rebekah is on her way back!

The Originals Quotes

Over the course of my long life, I have come to believe that we are bound forever to those with whom we share blood. And while we may not choose our family, that bond can be our greatest strength, or our deepest regret. This unfortunate truth has haunted me for as long as I can recall.


They say the passage of time will heal all wounds, but the greater the loss, the deeper the cut and the more difficult the process to become whole again. The pain may fade, but scars serve as a reminder of our suffering and make the bearer all the more resolved never to be wounded again. So as time moves along we get lost in distractions, act out in frustration, react with aggression, give in to anger, and all the while we plot and plan as we wait to grow stronger, and before we know it, the time passes. We are healed. Ready to begin anew.
