Are you ready to lose Kai?
Well, you might not have a choice!
As you know, Julie Plec is looking to join the ranks of Shondaland by adding a third series to The CW lineup, and today we learned she's hoping Chris Woods, who plays Kai on The Vampire Diaries, will make the journey with her.
Plec's new drama pilot, Cordon, tells the tale of a group of unlikely heroes who emerge after an epidemic breaks out in Atlanta, leaving those inside quarantined and fighting for their lives.
The story will revolve around how quickly humanity can fall apart under such circumstances and how unlikely heroes will rise.
Woods will play Jake, a former bad guy turned cop, as he's able to smother his first instinct to save himself in order to protect the ones that need him the most.
While the casting news certainly paints the pilot in new light, it's a little disheartening for die-hard TVD fans, who have fallen hard for Kai, a villain with many facets!
To get as much of Kai as you can, watch The Vampire Diaries online via TV Fanatic.
