Those who want a bit more Kai Parker in their lives are in luck: EW has revealed that Chris Wood will be returning as his Vampire Diaries character in Season 2 of Legacies. Wood will appear in the 12th episode of Legacies Season 2 which will air in February, and this is quite welcome news, especially considering two of Kai’s nieces are primary characters in the TVD/Originals spin-off.
Getting Kai back was something that was always on the minds o the show’s producers. “It’s so rude of me and so presumptuous, but I am just going to keep layering in Kai Parker until Chris Wood feels like he’s got no choice but to come back and play in our sandbox,” Julie Plec once told EW. I would love nothing more than to see that character again. I think he’d drop perfectly into this story line. I’m going to keep my fingers crossed and hope that I can make that work out one of these days.”
After his Vampire Diaries stint, Plec again cast Chris Wood in one of her projects, where he was the lead in the CW limited series Containment. Later, Wood played Mon-El on Supergirl; it was there that he met his wife, Melissa Benoist.
Legacies airs Thursday nights on The CW.
