The role of youngest Original sibling is currently being played by Daniel Sharman on The Originals, but for longtime fans of the Original family, they’ll remember back when Kol was a little more into biting necks than casting a spell. And it’s that version of Kol, played by Nathaniel Buzolic, that we’re going to see in the upcoming Kol-centric web series, The Originals: The Awakening.
In the four-part web series, which centers around Kol, we will find the Original in the French Quarter, only this time, it’s 1914 and he’s trying to form an alliance with the witches. According to The CW, “Fans will learn how and why Kol found himself in opposition to his vampire siblings, why he was daggered, and the unique back story he has with the witches.” The series will run parallel to the storyline of The Originals and will tie into the mid-season finale on Monday, Dec. 8.
For now, here’s an exclusive first look at the first segment of The Originals: The Awakening, in which Kol’s story begins.
