UPDATE (2/14): Consider this the best Valentine's Day news ever. "Great news — Auntie Bex @MissClaireHolt and Mr. Eloquent @MichaelNarducci will also be at #TheOriginals event at #Paleyfest March 22," Julie Plec tweeted very early Friday morning. Sounds like the whole Mikaelson family will be there. Sounds like the greatest family reunion ever, right?
Original Story: Snagging a PaleyFest panel is kind of a big deal in the TV world — which is why we’re so psyched that not only will stars from The Vampire Diariesbe gracing us with their appearance at this year’s PaleyFest, but so will folks from The Originals! Check out the lineup of vampires, witches, and good old-fashioned humans who will be gracing the stage with their presence!
The Paley Center for Media has just confirmed that Daniel Gillies (Elijah), Charles Michael Davis (Marcel), Leah Pipes (Cami), and Danielle Campbell (Davina) will all be attendance at the panel, set to happen on March 22 at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood. We still have our fingers crossed that Joseph Morgan (Klaus) and Claire Holt (Rebekah) will make the event, but they may be too busy plotting revenge against one anothers’ characters.
In the meantime, we’ll have to make do with the exciting news that Danielle Campbell will be there, right? For those who haven’t been keeping track at home, teenage witch Davina is currently so dead on The Originals. With the recent surge in resurrected witches, we’d been hoping for a Davina-shaped miracle, but this seems like solid proof that Marcel’s (and our) favorite witch won’t be gone for long.
In other excited PaleyFest news, Nina Dobrev (Elena/Katherine), Ian Somerhalder (Damon), and Paul Wesley(Stefan) have all been confirmed for the TVD panel, which — heads up — is a crossover panel with The Originals. We blame it on Julie Plec for creating both shows. Still, though, an excuse to see all of our TVD/The Originals faves back in one place? Sign us up!
Other PaleyFest panels scheduled include: Pretty Little Liars, Orange Is the New Black, Masters of Sex, Sleepy Hollow, Community, and American Horror Story: Coven. Former television shows Veronica Mars and Lost will also have featured reunion panels.
The Originals returns on Tuesday, February 25 at 8 p.m. ET on The CW.
