Steven Kruger, a recurring guest star on the CW’s The Originals, has been promoted to series regular on the series for its upcoming Season 5.

The spinoff off The Vampire Diaries aired in midseason and was renewed in May for a fifth season. It had been vulnerable going into its fourth season as there had been discussion whether the spinoff would be able to stand on its own after mothership The Vampire Diaries ended its run.

But The Originals saw respectable ratings business on Friday, where it succeeded TVD. It’s season finale June 23 drew 910,000 total viewers in Live+Same Day and a 0.3/1 rating.

The series follows Klaus Mikaelson and his family in New Orleans. Joseph Morgan stars alongside Daniel Gillies, Phoebe Tonkin, Charles Michael Davis, Yusuf Gatewood and Riley Voelkel. It hails from My So-Called Company, Alloy Entertainment, Warner Bros Television and CBS Television Studios. Julie Plec and Leslie Morgenstein are executive producers.

After spending eight years in the supernatural world of The Vampire Diaries — and directing five episodes of the series — Paul Wesley decided to stop through New York to visit the arguably more supernatural world of Shadowhunters. Wesley directed Monday’s episode, which sees Clary and Jace embark on a mission while Simon contemplates telling his family the truth about what he is. But before Wesley could step behind the camera, he had to brush up on the new, very complicated Shadow World.

“They sent me a PDF with a bit of backstory on all the characters,” Wesley tells EW. “Then, honestly, I went on the Wikipedia page and looked at that.”

Jul 17th: Shadowhunters Director Paul Wesley Teases Jonathan vs. Valentine, Reveals What Left Him ‘Physically Destroyed’

Jen | Categories: directing episode, interview, Non TVD Projects, Paul Wesley, TV Series | Comments Off on Shadowhunters Director Paul Wesley Teases Jonathan vs. Valentine, Reveals What Left Him ‘Physically Destroyed’

Considering his history with vampires, love triangles and complicated family dynamics, Paul Wesley directing Monday’s episode of Shadowhunters (Freeform, 8/7c) feels almost serendipitous.

Still, the former Vampire Diaries star tells TVLine (with a laugh) that he was “very surprised” the Powers That Be would trust a newcomer to the franchise with such a critical episode, adding, “I guess they foolishly put some faith in me.”

To his credit, Wesley boasts quite a bit of experience behind the camera, having directed five episodes of his own series throughout its eight-season run on The CW. And just like his episodes of The Vampire Diaries, Wesley says his main goal here was to look underneath Clary & Co.’s supernatural drama.

If you were worried about Paul Wesley’s first directorial debut on a show that he didn’t happen to star in, the cast of Shadowhunters is here to put your mind at ease.

Wesley’s episode of Shadowhunters, which airs July 17, has a whole lot of magic, vampire drama and even a few werewolves, which are all right up Paul Wesley’s alley. And though he may not have been as familiar with the show as he obviously was with The Vampire Diaries, it sounds like he took to it like a fish to water.
