Chris Wood is eventually getting his long-awaited return to Mystic Falls; the actor, who acted as Kai Parker in various seasons of The Vampire Diaries will guest-star in Episode 12 of Legacies‘ second season.
Series creator Julie Plec earlier this season, following a brief mention of Kai on the show, about the possibility of Wood showing his face on Legacies said: It’s undoubtedly not the last we’ve heard of him. We’ll continue laying little Kai Parker Easter eggs, as he is a massive part of the twins’ backstory and mythology… while I know we’ll never be able to get Chris Wood back for a whole series; it’s undoubtedly fun to keep him alive in the hopes that we’ll get to see him in small doses throughout the run of the show.
Wood enters a growing list of actors to take their roles from previous shows on Legacies as Zach Roerig (Matt Donovan) recurred throughout Season 1 as Mystic Falls’ new sheriff, while Steven R. McQueen (Jeremy Gilbert) and Jodi Lyn O’Keefe (Josette Laughlin) also did guest appearances. And Riley Voelkel (Freya Mikaelson) will show up later this month when she receives a “surprise visit” from one of the Salvatore School students.
Chris Wood is coming to Legacies in Season 2, and finally, it’s happening. The shows are striking once again; this time with the return of The Vampire Diaries. Followers have been waiting for this one and somewhat anticipating it for a while as Kai’s nieces Lizzie and Josie Saltzman are front and centre on the spinoff.
Lizzie and Josie are about to have a family reunion with their evil Uncle Kai. Chris Wood will be reprising his role as Kai Parker on Legacies in Season 2. Wood’s Kai will make his first appearance on Legacies in Episode 12. Wood’s first episode on The Vampire Diaries spinoff will air in February. So, Legacies is coming on strong.
