Another witch is coming to the Big Easy!

The Originals has cast The Wire star Sonja Sohn in a recurring season two role, E! News has exclusively learned. 

Set to make her debut on the CW hit's third episode of the season, Sohn will be taking on the role of Lenore, a powerful salt-of-the-Earth in New Orleans. As we first reported in our Spoiler Chat, Lenore will prove to be quite the foe for Klaus (Joseph Morgan). 

After playing Detective Shakima "Kima" Greggs for five seasons on the highly acclaimed HBO drama, Sohn starred on Body of Proof opposite Dana Delany and has made guest appearances on The Good WifeLaw & Order: SVU and Burn Notice.

And Sohn's Lenore isn't the only new witch fans will be meeting in season two.

We exclusively reported that Daniel Sharman, a Teen Wolf fan favorite, is set to play Kaleb, the handsome, devilish and charming new witch in the French Quarter's coven who is intent on wreaking havoc, wooing women and causing as much chaos as possible.

When The Originals returns in October for its second season, it'll be moving to a new night, now set to air on Mondays at 8 p.m., followed by the CW's new (and first) comedy, Jane the Virgin.
