                            'Legacies' Season 2: Freya and Kai from 'The Originals' and 'The Vampire Diaries' are coming back

'Legacies' returns for its second season next week and fans want to know whether we might see some familiar faces from its parent (and grandparent) shows: 'The Originals' and 'The Vampire Diaries'.

In Season 1, we saw Jeremy, Elena's little brother (not so little anymore) and Matt Donovan (sheriff of Mystic Falls in season 1 but set to be replaced in season 2).

During the San Diego Comic-Con this summer, in a chat with MEA Worldwide (MEAWW), creator Julie Plec teased that she has "exciting plans" regarding the return of a certain character in season 2.

Ahead of the second season's premiere, it has been confirmed that Riley Voelkel is set to return as Freya Mikaelson in for the sixth episode of the new season of 'Legacies'.

The last time we saw Freya she got married to Keelin and was set to have a baby with Vincent. In 'The Originals' Freya and Hope shared a very special bond -- when Hope's mother Haylie dies Freya steps in and is always present when Hope needs a shoulder to cry on.

Matt Davis, who plays Alaric also told MEAWW that Hope could be coming back to Mystic Falls from Malivore as soon as the end of the first episode and that she would be coming back to a world that does not remember who she is.

So we can expect that Freya may be showing up to help Hope. Freya is the most powerful witch Hope knows and perhaps she needs her favorite aunt's help to either take down a big baddie or help everyone remember who she is -- or even help the Saltzman twins with the Merge.

Davis also teased that the twins will be looking for answers from Alaric regarding a "certain key" to a certain place that most definitely holds a "certain relative" and this fits right in with Plec's plans to bring a certain villain from 'The Vampire Diaries' back.

We're talking about Kai Parker, of course, the Saltzman twins' bio-mom's twin brother who killed her on the day she got married. Alaric will certainly not be happy about that.

Of course, Kai's return could mean that the twins find a different solution to their Merge problem. They learned about the Gemini curse at the end of last season and the twins are certain to be working hard to find some way they can both survive it.

Keep in mind that Kai is also a Heretic in this other world — a vampire-witch hybrid that could mean true chaos if he does come back.

On November 7, it was confirmed that Chris Wood will be returning as Kai Parker for episode 12 of the second season of 'Legacies' set to air in February. The episode that aired on November 7, Episode 4, also featured a brief clip of Kai.
