Mitchell’s addition to Legacies marks his reunion with the series’ creator, Julie Plec. The two worked together previously on the CW sci-fi series, The Tomorrow People, which Plec co-developed. Although their previous time working together was short, Mitchell’s experience with that series and his role on Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD make him a great choice to join The CW’s supernatural teen drama. Viewers can catch the next episode of Legacies this Thursday, April 7.
