Calling all Veronica Mars fans, Jason Dohring is heading to New Orleans to hunt vampires.

The Veronica Mars alum who played Logan Echolls on the UPN/The CW just signed on for a recurring role on The Originals, The Hollywood Reporter said.

Jason will be playing Detective Will Kinney that THR described “as smart and confident with a very clear sense of right and wrong, who is out to bring the forces of evil to justice.”

Will doesn’t know what’s going on in New Orleans, but he has his suspicions.

It doesn’t sound like Jason will be playing a bad boy like Logan, but it should be nice to see him in a new role and going up against the Mikaelsons. He’s going to have to be a pretty tough cop to go up against the original family. Or could he be teaming up with them?

Jason will make his debut in the season three premiere.

At the San Diego Comic-Con executive producers Julie Plec and Michael Narducci told fans that the vampires the Mikaelson’s first sired will be coming to town with “an ax to grind.”

So the Mikaelson family will have more than one enemy to worry about in season three.

Get ready to meet the new detective and the sired vampires when The Originals returns on Thursday, October 8, 9/8c on the CW.
