Nathaniel Buzolic’s web series “The Originals: Awakening” premieres on November 10th, 2014!

The fans spoke and the network listened!  “The Originals: Awakening” web series starring fan favorite Nathaniel Buzolic as Kol Mikaelson arrives November 10th, 2014 on http://cwtv.com/thecw/theawakening/ !

The web series will be a four-part series, sponsored by Target, and will be about Kol Mikaelson, the youngest Mikaelson brother, played deliciously by Nathaniel Buzolic, the Original Kol. Although currently “Kol,” in the body of Kaleb, is played by Daniel Sharman, Nathaniel continues to play Kol in flashbacks.

Nate is as excited as his fans, saying, “excited for fans to see a little more of Kol, the most misunderstood member of the Mikaelson family.”

The “Awakening” web series will begin Monday, November 10th, on the http://cwtv.com/thecw/theawakening/ website and will air East Coast time at the same time as the series on The CW network.  The web series will run parallel to the storylines on the series and will tie directly into the upcoming mid-season finale on December 8th, 2014.

The web series will flash back to 1914, showing Kol on a quest to try and create an alliance with the French Quarter witches. The series promises to give fans some answers to burning questions relating to Kol’s past. For example, why and how did the relationship with his siblings break down, what did he do to make his brothers dagger him, and how he got involved with the witches which was probably a major factor in Esther being able to bring him back with Finn.

Carina MacKenzie, one of The Originals writers who helped write the series, was excited to explore Kol’s “mischievous nature” as well as some of the previously unrevealed backstory.

Carina MacKenzie on creating “Awakening” about Kol

When we found out we were going to get to do a web series, I immediately thought of Kol – because his mischief has always been part of the fabric of the city. We know from The Vampire Diaries that Kol has a history with the witches of New Orleans, and we’ve kept that in mind since the very beginning of The Originals,” she said. “In the web series fans will get to see how some events of last season can actually be traced back to Kol, and we’ll reveal some clues as to his current agenda with Davina. Thanks to some body-swapping hijinks, we’ve got Daniel Sharman playing the character on the show now, but we’re always super excited when we can bring Nathaniel Buzolic in for flashbacks. I had a great time working with him – he’s hilarious, and just steps right back into Kol so brilliantly. And he’s a really, really good sport about getting positively drenched in fake blood.
