King Henry lives!

Alan Van Sprang, known for his time as King Henry on Reign, and Natasha Henstridge are set to visit Beauty and the Beast when the CW drama returns for its third season, E! News has exclusive learned. And the recurring guest stars will be spending some quality time with Vincent (Jay Ryan) and Catherine (Kristin Kreuk), even acting as relationship mentors.

Van Sprang and Henstridge will play Bob and Carol, mirror images of VinCat, or should we say the future version of them? Quick-witted, charming and perfectly in-sync, the married couple will share marriage and relationship advice with their engaged (!) counterparts. 

So how do the two couples meet? Bob and Carol are professional-looking Department of Homeland Security Agents, but as VinCat fights beside them, they'll soon realize there is much more to the seemingly perfect couple than meets the eye. 

Like Van Sprang, Henstridge also starred as a complicated parental figure on the CW, playing Phoebe Tonkin's witchy mother, Dawn, on The Secret Circle

While BATB doesn't have a return date set just yet, we do know a little bit about season three: Finally free from Muirfield and beasts, Catherine and Vincent will be able to focus on their love. But it will be tested when an even more dangerous threat arises. Hey, no one ever said getting to happily ever after would be easy!

Beauty and the Beast returns for its third season in 2015.
