The vampire gang is getting back together…for a crossover.

At the Television Critics Association’s winter session, CW President Mark Pedowitz announced that The Vampire Diaries along with its spinoff series The Originals will have a crossover episode later this season.

“You will see, organically, a crossover this year,” said Pedowitz. He adds that it won’t be “the size or scope that you see on The Flash and Arrow. They have to be organic and make sense. If it doesn’t make sense storywise, don’t force it.”

The fans have been hoping for a crossover episode for a while, so this will be an exciting event. Plus, this news comes after the network moved both series to Friday nights. Pedowitz responded by saying that “the move is not to exile the shows, but to strengthen Friday night.”

The Vampire Diaries returns Friday, Jan. 29 at 8/7 c followed by The Originals at 9/8c on the CW.
