‘Legacies’ creator Julie Plec has been fairly vocal about the possibility of bringing Caroline and Bonnie back someday. With season 3 around the corner, will we see them finally reprise their roles?
The feisty Caroline Forbes who is a good vampire and doesn’t go around killing people (Remember ‘The Vampire Diaries’ Season 5?), and the witch that is forever ready to sacrifice herself for her friends, Bonnie Bennet, are yet to enter the fantasy drama series ‘Legacies’. Two seasons have passed and we’re eagerly waiting for that day. Let’s find out if we’ll ever get to see them reprise their iconic roles in the future or not.
- Where is Caroline Forbes?
- Is Kat Graham willing to come back as Bonnie in ‘Legacies’ Season 3?
- Will Julie Plec bring Caroline and Bonnie on ‘Legacies’ Season 3?
Where is Caroline Forbes?
Caroline is the surrogate mother to Alaric’s twins who has pretty much been absent from their lives. The twins have been told that she’s busy enlisting supernatural teens for the Salvatore school, but, in reality, she’s looking out for a way to make sure both her daughters live and The Merge doesn’t happen. The magical process that the Gemini twins must undertake to determine the leader of the coven. The stronger twin will absorb the powers of the weaker twin, while the other dies at the age of twenty-two.
During season 2, Josie harboured her dark magic to advance The Merge, but the result wasn’t clear. Thanks to Hope, who bound Lizzie (the other twin) to Landon, she came back to life. Lizzie believed herself to be victorious but stated to the Necromancer that she didn’t feel as if she had absorbed her sister’s power. This would mean that The Merge wasn’t successful.
Hence, leaving viewers to believe that Caroline will have to continue her mission and one day pop-up, out of the blue, with the solution to save her daughters.
In an interview with “CinemaBlend” in 2018, Julie Plec explained that if Caroline is going to be there for this huge event in their lives, it will be for a good reason.
Is Kat Graham willing to come back as Bonnie in ‘Legacies’ Season 3?
The witch that was always there to save her loved ones from any catastrophe, Bonnie is yet to be seen on ‘Legacies’. After ‘The Vampire Diaries’ ended in 2017, Bonnie Bennet has only been mentioned in its spin-off shows ‘Legacies’ and ‘The Originals‘, but never made an appearance.
Bonnie who has been through numerous transformations from a witch, the Anchor, vampire huntress, to a powerful psychic, was last seen saving the day like always in the finale season of ‘The Vampire Diaries’. In the end, Bonnie bid goodbye to her hometown to finally enjoy her life and travel the world.
Believing simply by the times her name has been mentioned in the series, it seems she is back in Mystic Falls and is ready to jump to the rescue, but from a distance. Her return has remained a big question because in an interview with “TV Guide”, Kat Graham declared how she felt Bonnie Bennet’s chapter is closed and doesn’t feel like reprising a character that was almost ten years of her life.
Will Julie Plec bring Caroline and Bonnie on ‘Legacies’ Season 3?
Julie Plec has always positively responded to Caroline and Bonnie’s involvement in ‘Legacies’ especially during interviews or while interacting with fans of the spin-off series.
In an interview with “TV Guide” in 2019, Julie Plec stated that the decision to appear on ‘Legacies’ is entirely Candice King’s. She accepted that the desire to see Caroline Forbes on ‘Legacies’ remains strong. But it is mostly a matter of finding the right story and the right opportunity for Candice to want to come back.
Plec further added that she is also open to the idea of having Bonnie back.
“The door is always open, and it’s just really a matter of being able to match up interest from these actors and story opportunity at the right time”.
As season 3 is approaching its probable release in January 2020, we can’t help but hope that King and Graham show up on ‘Legacies’. If not for a long duration, a little glimpse of them will surely leave fans of the supernatural teen drama series overjoyed.
