'Legacies': Candice King says 'never say never' about returning to 'The Vampire Diaries' spinoff in exclusive interview
It may not be any time soon, but our favorite Caroline Forbes could definitely make a return to Mystic Falls sometime in the future - in the new spin-off 'Legacies'
The Vampire Diaries fans have full reason to come out and take over social media hype because a new spin-off based on the franchise, and 'The Originals', called 'Legacies' is about to premiere soon! In less than 10 days precisely, the 'Vampire Diaries' slash 'The Originals' kids will arrive to make their TV debut in the form of Hope Mikaelson and her fellow supernaturals.
And while there won't be any familiar OG face to spot in the new crowd of protectors in Mystic Falls, fan favorite from the show, Candice King Accola, who plays Caroline Forbes, would like to assure fans that she isn't entirely opposed to the idea of returning to the franchise to grace us with some sassy Caroline moments.
Speaking exclusively to MEAWW, at 'Legacies' producer Julie Plec's F*ck Cancer's first annual Barbara Berlanti Heroes Gala in Burbank, Candice shared that chances of fans spotting her play the favorite blonde on the spin-off, might not be "anytime soon".
But she quickly added: "Never say never. I'm really really excited for the series premiere! I've heard so many wonderful things and actually. Jenny Boyd and I were taking an acting class this year, and then she got the role, and was like 'I'm your daughter!' So it's funny how small the world can be. But I'm really excited for the October premiere."
For those clueless about the spin-off, here's what the official synopsis reads: "Continuing the tradition of The Vampire Diaries and The Originals, the story of the next generation of supernatural beings at The Salvatore School for the Young and Gifted. Klaus Mikaelson's daughter, 17-year-old Hope Mikaelson; Alaric Saltzman's twins, Lizzie and Josie Saltzman; and other young adults come of age in the most unconventional way possible, nurtured to be their best selves... in spite of their worst impulses. Will these young witches, vampires, and werewolves become the heroes they want to be — or the villains they were born to be?"
When asked about the cause, and the impact and role social media has come to play in them over the years, she also spilled: "I think social media platforms are incredibly important; I've got two teenage step-daughters, and they get a lot of their news from social media, so I think it's really powerful that people are able to use their voice for causes that are really important to them."
But as 'thrilled to be invited by Julie Plec and support this really incredible cause and to hear everyone's story this evening', Candice was, we can't stop gushing over the fact that in the near future - or even a distant one, doesn't matter - we could once again relish the experience of her role on screen. Here's to hoping that future arrives soon!
