While we've seen our fair share of familiar faces in the current The Vampires Diaries spinoff, Legacies, don't keep your hopes up on seeing Klaus Mikaelson again.

Legacies, which focuses on Klaus' daughter Hope as she attends the Salvatore Boarding School for the Young and Gifted, is about to air its third season, but Joseph Morgan has no plans to appear.

"No never, never. You're never going to see it. You can hold your breath as long as you want. You know why? I have The Originals box set on my shelf, and it's a beautiful thing because it's five DVD sets that are a complete story from beginning to end of this guy, Klaus Michaelson — well, starting back in The Vampire Diaries Season 2," he told TVGuide. "So I just feel like to come back as a ghost or a flashback or something, for me, that journey, that story has ended. That's the complete story, and it just doesn't feel right to me to do that."

Klaus died in the season finale of The Originals, so it makes sense why his story is completely over. However, after Jo was brought back in Legacies like so many of our other favorite characters in The Vampire Diaries universe, fans still held out hope that he would return for a special scene with Hope.

Joseph also said that he's not the only one that feels this way.

"I think Julie [Plec] feels the same. It just feels like it would be strange, like a little forced," he continued. "Like I'm coming back just so we can see something else of him, but when we see it we go, 'Ugh, that was it?' And I don't want his legacy to be, 'Ugh.' I don't know what the scene could be that it would be exciting enough and epic enough after the journey that he's had."

At least we'll always be able to rewatch the series on Netflix.
