Jeanine Mason and Nathan Parsons snap a photo together at the Roswell, New Mexico panel at New York Comic-Con on Saturday (October 6) in New York City.

The stars of the upcoming CW show were joined by producers Julie Plec, Brett Hollier, and Carina Adly MacKenzie.

At the panel, creator and EP Carina talked about the decision to reboot the show and make it current, and with a diverse cast.

“I wanted to make sure there was a reason to reboot it, and that it felt very grounded in 2018 and what we are dealing with presently, because the original show is available on Hulu and it’s really great,” she said, via THR. “There wasn’t a reason to update it unless we made it really current, and I think one of the important things I wanted to do was … take Liz Parker back to Liz Ortecho, and create a show with a Latina lead and a really diverse cast.”

'Legacies' Will Reveal What Happened to Klaus & Elijah on 'The Originals' Finale

The cast of Legacies hit the stage for the show’s New York Comic-Con panel at Jacob Javits Center on Saturday (October 6) in New York City.

This is the first event that the whole cast – Danielle Rose Russell, Matthew Davis, Kaylee Bryant, Jenny Boyd, Quincy Fouse, Aria Shahghashemi and Peyton Alex Smith – have attended together, along with EPs Julie Plec and Brett Matthews.

During the panel, Julie did confirm that we will find out what happened to Klaus and Elijah in the series finale of The Originals.

She also said that this show is all that she hoped The Vampire Diaries would be.

“It’s a world that keeps giving back creatively,” Julie said, via TV Guide. “This show is what The Vampire Diaries was before it became TVD. Everything I always thought TVD would be, I was able to circle back and bring to here.”

Legacies premieres on Thursday, October 25th @ 9PM ET/PT on The CW.

Where is Candice King's Caroline in The CW's 'Legacies?'

Where is Candice King's Caroline in The CW's 'Legacies?'

The Vampire Diaries spin-off Legacies won’t be featuring Caroline Forbes when the show kicks off, so how will the new series explain her absence?

So far, Vampire DiariesMatt Davis, Steven R. McQueen, and Zach Roerig, are all set to reprise their roles, but not Candice King.

“We’re going to hear her and feel free a lot,” showrunner Julie Plec told EW. “I don’t know when we’ll see her. I, of course, would like to see her anytime. The door is open. But the girls are dealing with the fact that their mother, who has raised them, is a little absentee lately.”

So, what’s Caroline been up to since saying farewell to Klaus? “They believe she’s off on recruiting missions,” Julie shared about Caroline’s twin daughters. “Alaric knows she’s actually off doing other things that have to do with the long-term survival of their daughters. So the mystery of, where is Caroline, why isn’t she coming home for their birthday, that kind of thing is gonna be part of our story in the hopes that one day we’ll be able to walk to have her walk through the doors as well.”

“A lot of the supernatural beings that we’ll be opening our doors to are things you never would have seen on The Vampire Diaries,” Julie said as star Danielle Rose Russell added, “In our second episode, we have a very exciting new creature with a lot of CGI.”

Legacies premieres on October 25 on The CW.

Can you believe there’s only one episode of The Originals left before the series finale?!

When TV Guide asked the cast what they’ll miss most about their CW show, they all brought up their fans.

“This show wouldn’t have existed without you guys,” Joseph Morgan said. “You watched Vampire Diaries and you started putting all of these trailers online, making all these trailers for The Originals. I mean, you guys even named it… You took a couple of villains from that show and you decided you wanted a show about them, and I’m just so grateful we got to go on that journey with you, so thank you so much for that experience.”

“We really worked hard to tell great stories for you,” showrunner Julie Plec added, “And your passion and your enthusiasm and your total rage at me for saying the show was over means that it meant a lot to you, and I appreciate that.”

“Your love and your support and your kindness does not go unnoticed,” Claire Holt shared. “We talk about it all the time, and I’ll remember it for the rest of my life.”

Hear what Daniel Gillies, Charles Michael Davis, Yusuf Gatewood, Riley Voelkel, Nathaniel Buzolic, and Danielle Rose Russell had to say below.

The Originals airs Wednesdays at 9/8c on The CW.
