The Originals season 3 debuts Thursday October 8th, but EW already released this brand new still from the season premiere, which shows Klaus reuniting with his first sire, Lucien (played by Andrew Lees).
Lucien is described as a smart, charming, wildly successful guy who prides himself on being two steps ahead of everyone. (Sounds just like Klaus, eh? *nudge* Eh? We’re intrigued!) You can never have enough Klaus though.
It’ll be interesting to see how the bond between these two plays out.
Here’s the premise of The Originals season 3:
The Original siblings might’ve done away with their parents — and that one evil aunt — but what happens when the tables are turned, and suddenly their children come to town?
That’s the premise of the third season of The Originals, when The Trinity comes to town. The Trinity, of course, is made up of the first vampire Klaus ever sired, the first vampire Elijah ever sired, and the first vampire Rebekah ever sired. Long story short, there’s a sire line war erupting and these vamps probably have a lot to say.
And when it comes to Klaus’ progeny, Lucien (played by Andrew Lees), things are, well, complicated. “We learned how to make vampires when my sire was created,” Joseph Morgan tells EW. “There’s definitely a bond there. We owe each other a lot.”
Words can’t express how excited we are for the October premiere. Last season was all kinds of crazy; we know they’ll be stepping it up a notch this season, so our best advice is to hang on tight and enjoy the ride. (Side note: We’re equally as excited for the premiere of The Vampire Diaries!)
