Hope Mikaelson is getting a visit from her Aunt Freya!

It's hard to believe we went an entire season without Hope reuniting with any of her family members. 

Her mother and father may be dead, but there are other members of her family out there.

This appearance from Voelkel is billed as a guest stint, likely because the actress also appears on fellow CW drama, Roswell, New Mexico. 

It's unclear what brings Freya to Mystic Falls, but we're willing to be there's going to be some great magical goodness from her and her neice.

Maybe Freya will help take down the villain of the week that Legacies has adopted very well since its launch. 

Voelkel is the latest star from one of the previous series to appear on the third series in the franchise.

Zach Roerig appeared on multiple episodes of the freshman season as Matt Donovan, but given that there's a new sheriff in town, it's unlikely he will be booking a return visit any time soon.

Steven R. McQueen also returned as Jeremy Gilbert for one episode. 

It's unclear whether other returns are planned, but Executive producer Julie Plec has been open about bringing back Chris Wood as Kai.

Given that Kai has a big link to Lizzie and Josie, then it would make sense for it to happen for the story. 

As for Legacies Season 2, it debuts Thursday, October 10, and will find Hope trying to make her way out of Malivore.

The Originals Quotes

[to Kol and Finn] I'd prefer you both to join me against our mother, but I'll happily settle for one or the other. Either way, if you continue to defy me, your lives will be reduced to an unending sequence of agonizing torture. So, which is it to be?


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.
