Legacies Season 2 may still be a few months away, but this addition to the cast is going to make the wait a whole lot longer. 

TV Line is reporting that Buffy the Vampire/Angel grad, Alexis Denisof has joined the cast as Professor Vardemus, an "urbane British sorcerer."

The character is described as “a bit of a dandy, [Vardemus] wins over the Salvatore students with his steadfast belief in the superiority of their supernatural world.”

The Vampire Diaries/The Originals successor is also bringing in an older vampire in Descendants actor Thomas Doherty. He is attached to play someone who will get very close to Lizzie Saltzman. 

We're not sure Alaric or Caroline will be happy about that!

None of the series regulars are present, so this appears to be one of the teasers that are not actual footage from the series. 

Still, it's very eerie.
