Het is bekend geworden dat de serie ‘NCIS: New Orleans’ na het zevende seizoen zal stoppen, Charles was sinds het zesde seizoen te zien in de serie.
NCIS: New Orleans, the youngest series in CBS’ formidable NCIS franchise, is coming to an end. The current seventh season will be the drama’s last, with the series finale slated for May 16. It will be the show’s 155th episode.
The NCIS offshoot starring and executive produced by Scott Bakula joins another long-running CBS series that is wrapping this season; news got out this afternoon that comedy Mom will end with its current eighth season.
“Sad to end our love affair with this phenomenal city but so grateful for all the friends we made along the way,” Bakula said. “I will miss the music. Big thank you to CBS for seven years.”
“It has been our sincere pleasure and honor to work on this show and with this incredible cast and crew for over 150 episodes,” said executive producers/showrunners Silber and Nash. “As disappointed as we are to see NOLA end, we couldn’t be prouder of the work we’ve done and are grateful to the spectacular and resilient Crescent City that embraced us for seven wonderful years.”
From the start, NCIS: New Orleans was able to distinguish itself with its New Orleans authenticity,” said Kelly Kahl, president of CBS Entertainment. “From the colors and music to the vibrancy and stories you can only find in the Big Easy. Thanks to the amazing talents of the producers, writers, cast and crew, NOLA has played a key role on our schedule. We’re pleased to give it a big sendoff and that viewers will have the opportunity to say goodbye to their favorite characters as the final season wraps.”

Daniel heeft enkele online interview gehad op zijn nieuwe film ‘Coming Home in the Dark’ te promoten. In een interview met ET Canada laat hij ook weten of hij ooit weer een rol zou spelen in ‘The Vampire Diaries.’, zie hieronder.
Executive producer Brett Matthews heeft in een interview laten weten dat ze altijd open staat om de personage Caroline een rol te laten spelen in ‘Legacies’. Echter laat hij weten dat Candice beslissing moet zijn of dit mogelijk is voor haar met haar carrière en privéleven, mocht ze ineens besluiten tijd te hebben dan zijn de makers bereid te kijken hoe ze haar in de verhaallijn kunnen passen.
The Vampire Diaries spin-off Legacies returned for its third season premiere last night (January 21), though the question that has been on many fans’ lips for years is whether we will see a big favourite.
While Matthew Davis has jumped over as Alaric Saltzman to the series from the original series, many will be wondering whether his Vampire Diaries colleague Candice King will follow suit as Caroline Forbes.
After all, Josie (Kaylee Bryant) wants to spend some time with Caroline, so could we see her make an appearance at some point? Asked about the prospect, Legacies executive producer Brett Matthews told TVLine: “Our answer is still the same, and you’re probably sick of hearing it, but the door is always open to Candice. “We love her and think so highly of her, and we love Caroline Forbes so much. We would be thrilled [to have her back], but it’s really up to her. We’d love to have the challenge of figuring out how Caroline fits into Legacies, be that for an episode or an arc or whatever.”
However, he noted: “But it obviously depends on her schedule and the opportunities she’s pursuing in her career. “While Legacies is very much a show that’s doing its own thing, it’s built upon the legacies of the other shows — hence the title being what it is — so we’d love that.”
Let’s hope that the way is cleared for an appearance at some point soon.
Ian Somerhalder has responded to the rumours of ‘The Vampire Diaries’ reboot and well, it’s negative. The actor who played the vampire Damon Salvatore in the fan-favorite series still has a lot of love for Vampire Diaries, but he’s learned that it’s best for the dead to stay dead.
On Sirius XM’s Radio Andy, host Andy Cohen brought up the possibility of reviving the beloved CW series, asking, “[There are] rumours circling online that it could come back for a ninth season, but that the decision is up to you and Nina [Dobrev]. Any truth to that?”
Ian shut down the idea of returning to his role as Damon, aka Nina Dobrev’s love interest. “I have not heard anything about a season nine,” he simply stated.
As fans will recall, they both ended the series having taken the cure for vampirism and were ready to embark on a life as newlyweds. Not to mention, Stefan (Paul Wesley) finally passed on to the afterlife.
For Ian, he said that it wouldn’t be the dramatic story fans got to know and love. “What would happen?” he questioned. “Damon would have like, grey hair and they’d have canes. Like, ‘Oh, I’ve got to feed the baby.'”
Ian also wondered why they would need to reboot the series after all this time, especially when it continues to be a success on streaming platforms like Netflix. He remarked, “Now, it’s still living. That’s what’s so amazing.”
At long last, Thursday’s episode of Legacies (The CW, 9/8c) raises the curtain on Salvatore: The Musical. But what’s supposed to serve as a straight retelling of the supernatural school’s inception quickly becomes a musical recap of The Vampire Diaries‘ many sordid romances. And we have no complaints.
Following a brief-but-memorable audition process, Josie (Kaylee Bryant) and Kaleb (Chris Lee) land the roles of Elena Gilbert and Damon Salvatore, made famous 11 years ago by Nina Dobrev and Ian Somerhalder. And just as Damon and Elena’s legacies (tee-hee!) are inherently woven into the fabric of this spinoff, both Bryant and Lee were already familiar with the original series’ angsty lovers.
“It was the first show I ever binge-watched,” Bryant tells TVLine of The Vampire Diaries, adding that she has rewatched the first season “at least three or four times, so the research is already done.” Lee says he was also familiar with both TVD and The Originals before joining Legacies, albeit to a lesser extent, thanks to a previous girlfriend’s obsession with the franchise.
Still, walking (and singing) a mile in Damon and Elena’s shoes helped both actors develop a new appreciation for them. “Elena’s character arc was all about choosing what made the most sense for her, which was sometimes seen as the ‘selfish’ decision, and that’s pretty much what Josie has been dealing with,” Bryant says. “It was fun being able to relate to [Elena] in that way I never thought I would.”
Lee also discovered similarities between Kaleb and Damon, particularly in their philosophies about being a member of the undead among the living. “Kaleb’s attitude, especially in Season 1, came from Damon,” Lee says. “And I love the relationship he had with his brother. It’s like, ‘I love you, but I hate you. I need you, but I don’t want you around.’ That type of thing.”
Speaking of Damon’s brother, Lee commends Ben Levin’s work as Stefan in Salvatore: The Musical. “Jed’s voice is incredible,” Lee says. “He was committed to getting the moves and steps right, making it look like he wasn’t trying at all.” As for his female counterpart, Lee says, “Kaylee is a dream and a half. I love her voice. And she gets theater. She’s so natural at translating it to the screen.”
Though Landon gets in-show credit for penning this musical history lesson, the episode itself was written by Thomas Brandon, who also co-wrote the songs with musician Chris Read. (Brandon, whom executive producer Julie Plec calls her “secret weapon for music,” previously wrote Josie and Landon’s songs for the talent show in Season 1.) Several of the numbers in Salvatore: The Musical are even named after iconic TVD lines, including “Hello, Brother,” of which you can hear in full below:
Next, it was time for Bryant and Lee to dress the part.
“There were pictures of the main original cast of The Vampire Diaries everywhere, and everyone was trying to figure out what their most iconic looks were,” Bryant recalls. “For Elena, it was the layered thermal with the white cami popping out. And a fake leather jacket. So much pleather. We even put up pictures of her hair, trying to find the perfect wig that would fall straight down like her hair did. All that fun stuff.”
But no costume piece brought Bryant more joy than Elena’s flare jeans. “They were really comfortable,” she says. “We need to bring those back. My ankles got so much of a breeze!”
Lee also relished the opportunity to dress like Damon, whose style he originally hoped Kaleb would mirror before he and costume designer Ann Walters settled on a more refined look for his character. Kaleb dresses “like LeBron after a basketball game,” Lee explains, “which makes sense, because he’s a football kid who happened to become a vampire. In the fitting room for this episode, putting on that scarf, those boots, that jacket — it was like, ‘Oh man, I’m not even worthy.’”
Legacies is about to take a trip down memory lane. In the series’ upcoming episode, “Salvatore: The Musical,” the Salvatore School puts on a musical all about the school’s history. That history includes the story of Elena Gilbert (Nina Dobrev), Stefan and Damon Salvatore (Paul Wesley and Ian Somerhalder), Caroline Forbes (Candice King), Klaus Mikaelson (Joseph Morgan), and many more. And for Legacies’ Kaylee Bryant, it was a chance to put her love of all things Vampire Diaries to use.
EW spoke with Bryant about the hour and the pressure of playing Elena.
As a fan of The Vampire Diaries, what was your reaction the first time you read this episode?
Oh, I was so excited! I was so obsessed with The Vampire Diaries, and I’ve watched it so many times. I feel like the past 5-6 years of my life have been in preparation for this. [Laughs] I got super nervous when they told me I was playing Elena. But the more that I realized it was me playing Josie and Josie who was playing Elena, the more I was like, “Oh, this is okay. This makes sense.”
You all nailed the Elena costume.
Yeah, it’s kind of amazing. The costume department, the hair and makeup department, everybody got super inspired and super excited about it. We had pictures everywhere of everybody’s most iconic looks, which involved a lot of pleather as I think we all know, a lot of bootcut legs.
And the layering of the shirts!
Oh my God, I miss it, but at the same time we were doing the “Hello Brother” dance and we got to take 30 and I was like, “Why am I sweating so much?” And I was like, “Oh because I’m wearing three layers of thermals.” [Laughs]
As the TVD expert on the cast, did you find yourself explaining a lot of things to your cast mates?
Oh constantly. My only thing is, and I’m going to regret this for the rest of my life, is that in the opening number I was wearing Elena’s necklace and I kick myself to this day because she shouldn’t have the necklace by then. That’s going to drive me crazy for the rest of my life. You see Elena and just associate the necklace with her but Stefan’s the one that gives it to her and she meets Stefan with it on in the musical and I’m like, “Nooo!”
What was your favorite part of making this episode?
Honestly, the rehearsal process was so much fun. Chris [Lee] and I both come from musical theater backgrounds and I think we both were really missing it at that point, so we actually did full-blown rehearsals in a ballet studio with professional dancers and it was so much fun! We all got to play around and that was genuinely my favorite part of it all.
How long was the rehearsal process?
Well, episodes 1 through 4 are year-long episodes. These episodes took a year to do because we started at this time, if not earlier, last year and finished at the very end of last year. It took a very long time because we got put on hold because of COVID so it was a lengthy process. We did the choreography and the recordings and a few scenes before we all got shut down. It’s almost been worse because then I had an entire year to sit back and go, “I could’ve done all of that so much better.” [Laughs]
What does Josie take away from her time as Elena?
She really takes away a lot. I went through the same process as Josie in that I heard that Josie was playing Elena and I was like, “Why would they do that, they have nothing in common.” And then the more I dug, the more I realized that their over-arching character stories have so much in common, with them deciding what is the right choice for them outside of everybody else. So it’s really interesting how her stepping into Elena really validates what it means to be selfish versus what it means to look after your mental health.
Looking ahead a bit, is she still dealing with the Dark Josie fallout in episodes to come?
Definitely. Josie has been at this school for her entire life and she sees magic very differently than everybody else. She struggles with basically an addiction to magic, and I think that she really comes to terms with that these next couple of episodes. The Salvatore School is completely full of magic so her entire life she’s always been surrounded by the thing that hurts her the most, so she has to take initiative for herself and what is best for her.
Is there a side of Josie you’d like to see more of this season?
The first half of the season following the musical and episode 4, we really dive into Josie actually sticking to her word of not being co-dependent and really finding her own independence, which is something that I had so much fun working on. What’s exciting about this season for me personally is that I do get to work with some new faces, which was really fun to get some fresh blood in here.
