CW alum Luke Mitchell has returned to the network in a series regular role on “Legacies.”
The “Republic of Sarah” and “Blindspot” star will make his debut as a malevolent god named Ken on this week’s episode of the supernatural drama.
His character is looking to unseat 17-year-old Hope (Danielle Rose Russel), his rival for as the world’s most powerful being. Hope is a tribrid, whose unique power derives from the blending of vampire, werewolf and witch bloodlines.
The series is a spinoff of “The Originals,” which was a spinoff of “The Vampire Diaries.” It’s set at The Salvatore Boarding School for the Young & Gifted, where a new generation of supernatural students learns how to use their powers.
Mitchell previously co-starred in “The Tomorrow People,” a revival of the British 1970s show, which ran from 2013-2014 on The CW.
“Legacies” is from Warner Bros Television and CBS Television Studios, in association with My So-Called Company. Julie Plec, Brett Matthews, Leslie Morgenstein and Gina Girolamo are executive producers.
Mitchell also co-starred on ABC’s “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.LD” and the CBS legal drama “The Code.” He is repped by Management 360, UTA and McMahon Management in Australia.
