The Originals Spoilers

The Originals Adds Sleepy Hollow Alum Neil Jackson as Season 4 Vampire

The Headless Horseman is making tracks for New Orleans. Sort of.

Neil Jackson, Ichabod’s friend-turned-frenemy on Fox’s Sleepy Hollow, will recur on The Originals‘ upcoming fourth season, series star Joseph Morgan revealed to reporters in the press room at San Diego Comic-Con.

Little is known as about Jackson’s character at the moment, save for him being a vampire named Alistair who will interact with Klaus. (For Alistair’s sake, let’s hope that interaction doesn’t involve a beheading — not that Jackson hasn’t had practice in that role.)

Jackson’s additional TV credits include roles on Blindspot, Person of Interest and Make It or Break It.

What we do know about Season 4 is that it picks up five years after the events of May’s season finale, as Hayley and a grown-up Hope fight to save and reunite their family. You can learn more about what the fourth season has in store for the Mikaelsons in TVLine’s cast interview below:

    Interesting and very cool. From all I’ve seen from what has come out of Comic-Con, I’m excited about the fourth season of TO! This is going to be a long back-half of 2016. Hopefully, the wait will be worth it!
