the originals alexandra metz 'The Originals' casts 'Chicago Fire's' Alexandra Metz in pivotal, magical role

Something wicked — and witchy — this way comes on “The Originals.”

“The Vampire Diaries” spinoff has just cast “Chicago Fire’s” Alexandra Metz for a pivotal and magical arc, Deadline reports.

Metz will play Katie, a beautiful and mysterious witch with a hidden agenda. Her actions will have shocking ramifications for the supernatural community of New Orleans … and we’re guessing current King of New Orleans, vampire Marcel (Charles Michael Davis), won’t like that one bit. Especially since he thinks he has all the witches under his control.

Other recent casting news includes “Supernatural” alum Sebastian Roche, who will reprise his “Vampire Diaries” role as Mikael, the patriarch of the Original family (probably in flashbacks, as Mikael was killed in Season 3 of “TVD”), as well as Roche’s fellow “Supernatural” alum Todd Stashwick, who will play the role of Father Kieran, first appearing in episode 4.

“The Originals” premieres on Thursday, Oct. 3, at 9 p.m. ET on The CW.
