It’s all happening, Klaroline fans!

EW has confirmed that Candice King, known for playing Caroline on The Vampire Diaries, will appear in the season 5 premiere of The Originals. The news was first reported by TVLine, though there’s no word on whether King will stick around for more than one episode.

Caroline has a long history with The Originals‘ Klaus. The two struck up a flirtation when Klaus was in Mystic Falls, though the furthest their romantic relationship got was a (very hot) hook-up in the woods. But in the Vampire Diaries series finale, Caroline and Alaric opened a school for gifted children, and their biggest donation came from none other than Klaus Mikaelson, who reiterated that he’s looking forward to seeing Caroline again… however long it takes.


And with The Originals season 4 finale seeing Hope, Klaus’ daughter, attend Caroline’s school, it’s not a surprise that the two characters will cross paths. The question is: Is there hope for romance?
