Originals Back For The Vampire Diaries Season 4

Fans of “The Vampire Diaries” — get excited because we have huge news on season 4 of the CW hit show. It looks like Vampire Elena is going to have some unexpected company when TVD returns on October 11th, and we could not be more excited. Thanks to a photo tweeted out by Michael Trevino, who plays Tyler on the show, we know that Joseph Morgan will definitely be back for season four. Obviously, this means that the original family must be returning and that we have not seen the last of Klaus’ reign of terror. To further amp up fan excitement, the cast just released a video the show’s official Facebook page, where they thank the viewers for helping them get to 13-million likes on the social networking site. We see all of our favorites — Ian Somerhalder, Paul Wesley, Candice Accola, Michael Trevino, Kat Graham, Zac Roerig and even a lighter-haired Nina Dobrev (we’re guessing this could be part of her vampire makeover). But the real excitement in this video clip comes as the result of cameos from 2 very notable characters — first up is Claire Holt, who plays Rebekah and second is none other than Klaus himself, Joseph Morgan. Until recently, fans of the show were completely unsure of whether or not Morgan would be returning to TVD. A few days back, the actor sent out a tweet about going to a mysterious table read, and now we can confirm that he will be back on the Vampire Diaries
