Originals' Nathaniel Buzolic Talks Kol's Return in 'Flashback-Heavy' Season 3

The Originals Nathaniel Buzolic

We hope you’re thirsty, CW junkies, because your long, Nathaniel Buzolic-less drought is almost over.

In addition to starring in the new comedy Significant Mother — a clothing-optional environment, to say the least — Buzolic will soon make his long-awaited return to The Originals, a fact executive producer Julie Plec revealed during the show’s panel at Comic-Con earlier this month.

Though Buzolic has yet to make the trek back to “New Orleans,” he tells TVLine he’s excited to continue exploring the fan-favorite character.

“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,” he says.

Buzolic says he’s always blown away by the support he receives from fans on social media, asking when they can expect to see him as Kol again.

“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,” he says. “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. I’ll always have a soft spot for that character.”
