The Originals Season 4: Neil Jackson Added as New Vampire

at .

The Headless Horseman is riding into New Orleans!

Well, not really.

But Neil Jackson, who played him on Fox's Sleepy Hollow, will be joining The Originals Season 4 as a vampire named Alistair. He'll air on a recurring basis.

Since the season is a way off, not much is known about Alistair.

What we do know is he'll interact with another vamp we know and love, Klaus. Good enough for us!

There was a lot of other news to come out of San Diego Comic Con this weekend, as well.

The Originals will finally be joining up to (and surpassing) The Vampire Diaries in the timeline.

When the series returns, it will come with a five year time jump into the future.

At that time, we'll see Hayley and her grown daughter, Hope, fighting to save and unite the family.

We also know what she needs in order to do that. She needs to locate seven werewolf packs.

Will that bring a reconciliation of Hayley and Elijah? Anything is possible.

Julie Plec agrees that they've danced around their relationship and dropped right down to the bottom.

Perhaps it will be time for them to find their way back to a little happiness.

We'll have to wait to see how new vampire Alistair fits into all of this.

Jackson isn't the only new player on The Originals horizon, thought. A lovely lady will be joining him.

Christina Moses, who recently had a leading role on the short-lived CW show Containment, will join the series as a bisexual werewolf named Keelin.

Keelin is an ER doctor who also happens to be the very last wolf in her line, with no idea the Mikaelsons will take issue with her when they meet.

She must be a member of one of the packs Hayley is seeking. She most likely doesn't want to be found, either, since her entire family was murdered and she's in hiding.

How do you think Alistair and Keelin will add to the excitement of The Originals Season 4? Are you looking forward to what's ahead?

The Originals Quotes

[to Klaus] I...let this person in. I let her in. I don't let people in. You knew this, and you've taken her from me. I needed her and you've broken me.


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.
