The Vampire Diaries actor Joseph Morgan has gotten fans excited by sharing a reunion picture with his former co-stars Paul Wesley and Ian Somerhalder.
The actor, who’s best known for playing the villainous yet loveable Klaus Mikaelson on TVD and its spin-off show The Originals, posted a sweet photo of the Salvatore brothers looking cosy on either side of him to Instagram.
He captioned the snap: “Caught up with these two legends. I’ll let you caption this one.

Fans excited to see the trio back together flooded the comments section with messages of love and support.
One wrote: “MY FAVORITES. ALWAYS AND FOREVER. Please make a new tv series,” while another commented: “This is what [the] Internet wants!”
Despite his character dying in the last episode of The Originals back in 2018, fans had been calling for Morgan to reprise the part ever since, and in June, he did so in the spin-off series Legacies.
Klaus has become a staple in the TVD universe, which makes it hard to fathom that the character was only supposed to make an appearance in four episodes of the flagship series.
“From the beginning it was always thought that Klaus would die at the end of season three,” Morgan revealed. “So I would come in at the end of season two, season three would be my big season of being this villain throughout the whole season and then the good guys would defeat me at the end of season three.
“Then a few things happened – one was of course the degree of passion with which the fans responded to the character and the other was that I was just having so much fun playing [him] and I always felt that for the character there wasn’t enough room to grow in the setting of The Vampire Diaries.”
The Vampire Diaries is available to watch on Netflix.
