Nice. Do you think Joseph Morgan was teasing a larger-than-expected role for his series regular character, CJack60, in Brave New World Season 1 or was he teasing that the series had been renewed for Season 2? Maybe he was getting ahead of a big renewal announcement. We'll see.

Brave New World is based on the dystopian novel by Aldous Huxley, following a "utopian" society of the future that achieves peace and stability through the strict control of every aspect of civilization. Humans are genetically bred and placed into a rigid caste system.

Joseph Morgan plays CJack60, an Epsilon assigned to physical, tedious jobs, who is deeply impacted after witnessing a horrifying incident. (Apparently he has some cool stunt work on the show.)

Brave New World was originally meant to be on the USA Network, but another recent development is that it was moved to NBC's new streaming network Peacock. So that's a potential downside if viewers don't get access to Peacock after it debuts in April 2020. It's not clear if Brave New World (Season 1?) will premiere in April but that's when Peacock is meant to arrive with "over 15,000 hours of content," per Deadline.

Brave New World stars Game of Thrones' Harry Lloyd as Bernard Marx; Solo's Alden Ehrenreich as John the Savage; Downton Abbey's Jessica Brown Findlay as Lenina Crowne; Ant-Man and the Wasp's Hannah John-Kamen as Wilhelmina "Helm" Watson; Pitch's Kylie Bunbury as Frannie; Love Actually's Nina Sosanya as Mustafa Mond; and Demi Moore in the recurring role of Linda, described as the brash, hard-living mother of John the Savage.

So, whatever Joseph Morgan was teasing for Brave New World, we know we'll be seeing plenty of him after the show premieres on Peacock. It's his first series regular role after playing Klaus Mikaelson on The Vampire Diaries and then on The Originals -- which aired its series finale one year ago -- although he recently had a recurring role as Jed on Animal Kingdom.

Meanwhile, Klaus Mikaelson's daughter Hope Mikaelson is struggling in Legacies Season 2, since everyone has forgotten she existed. Klaus's sister Freya Mikaelson of The Originals will hopefully help in some way when she shows up in Mystic Falls pretty soon.

Stay tuned for more info on Brave New World. Legacies airs Thursdays at 9 p.m. on The CW. Keep up with everything still airing on TV this year with our handy 2019 fall TV premiere schedule.
