Nathaniel Buzolic’s Kol will return to The Originals in flashbacks in season 3!

The Originals Nathaniel Buzolic will be returning as brother Kol Mikaelson in season 3 flashbacks, until Rebekah figures out how to bring him back to life.

In spite of a previous Skype call to Italian fans at the Love&Blood ItaCon 3D saying he would NOT be coming back to The Originals due to his commitment on the new CW network comedy Significant Mother, never say never! Nathaniel just announced that his character of Kol Mikaelson will be returning after all in the flashback-heavy season 3, much to the delight of his fans!

Even though dead is dead forever now on The Vampire Diaries, looks like dead is still temporary on The Originals. Then there’s the body switching where Daniel Sharman played Kol in season 2. When Davina, played by Danielle Campbell, worked a spell to bring him back, the question on her and everybody’s else mind was which one would return – the Nathaniel Buzolic Kol or the Daniel Sharman Kol? This question is on hold since, thanks to Elijah, played by Daniel Gillies, Mama Esther was brought back instead in order to defeat Aunt Dahlia and save baby Hope.

In spite of his currently dead status, Kol has 1000 years of history, minus the years he spent daggered by Klaus, which gives the series plenty of opportunities to include him in flashbacks. Since season 3 deals with sire lines, the producers have indicated, and Nathaniel has confirmed, the season with be heavy with flashbacks.

Nathaniel’s new series on The CW, Significant Mother, premieres Monday, August 3, 2015, at 9:30/8:30c. When signing for the new series, he said he made it clear that he wanted the time available to return to The Originals if given the opportunity.

From what I understand, this is going to be a flashback-heavy season, which is cool, because it means there’s more opportunity for Kol to come back and you can see more of him.

I made it clear when I signed on to Significant Mother that I wanted to also be available for The Originals if the opportunity came up. I’m incredibly grateful to Julie Plec for giving me that opportunity; being a part of that show has been a life-changing experience for me,” he said. “I’ll always have a soft spot for that character.

On Significant Mother (a twist on significant other), Nathaniel plays Jimmy Barnes with Josh Zuckerman as Nate Marlowe and Krista Allen as Lydia Marlowe, Nate’s mother. A brief summary is Portland restaurateur Nate returns from a business trip to find his lothario BFF, Jimmy, dating his recently separated mom Lydia.

It will be great seeing Nathaniel in this comedy and in the upcoming flashbacks!
