Joseph Morgan has confirmed he will reprise his role as Niklaus “Klaus” Mikaelson in the legacies final.

Morgan announced his return with fans on Instagram, saying in a video: “If you had the chance to say one last goodbye to the child you loved more than anything else, would you take it?”

Klaus is the father of Hope (Danielle Rose Russell), and he first appeared in The diary of vampires before taking center stage in spin-off The originals.

The character, the first vampire-werewolf hybrid, died at the end of the originals, but despite that he makes a brief return in legacies, according to the actor.

In his Instagram video, Morgan commented on the many hints fans believed he made in the past to return to legacies before you say, “I’m going to tell you a few things now. You’re going to see Klaus again, in the very last episode of legacies.

“For a fleeting moment. That’s it. You heard it here first. And I’ll tell you something else, and I know many of you probably don’t like this – this was never about a ship for me, or for Klaus.

“This is about family. Family is power. This is about a father and his daughter. Their relationship. What he feels he owes her, that’s what this is about.

“So there was a very secret, a very clandestine scene shot, and just before shooting that scene, I made a video in costume and felt how I felt when I entered that scene.

“I want to prepare you for the end of the… TVD universe, because all good things must come to an end.”

Morgan went on to share a second video he shot before filming his scene for the legacies finale, in which he said: “Since I left the originals it hasn’t left me, and Niklaus Mikaelson has always been there in my head and in my heart.

“And you’ve been incredible, you haven’t let go and you know I’ve been asked time and again to appear on legacies and until now it never felt right.

“Now it feels good, so I hope you enjoy this and feel as passionately as I do. This one is for you.”

And ahead of the finale, Morgan shared a poem on his Twitter and Instagram to mark the end of The Vampire Diaries universe, where the first letter of each sentence made the words “Always & Forever”.

The Legacies finale airs on The CW at 9 p.m. ET.
