Last we saw the werewolf, Klaus (Joseph Morgan) had taken over Tyler's body to save himself from desiccation. Although his love Caroline (Candice Accola) believes she said goodbye to Tyler, she'll soon learn that he's still alive — just in someone else's body.

The role will reunite Tonkin with former H2O: Just Add Water costar Claire Holt.

The Vampire Diaries returns Thursday, Oct. 11 at 8/7c on The CW.
