Tyler Lockwood has found his next gig.

EW has confirmed that Vampire Diaries star Michael Trevino has joined the cast of the CW’s upcoming Roswell reboot. The reboot, which comes from The Originals team of Carina Adly MacKenzie and Julie Plec, is based on the Roswell High book series by Melinda Metz and follows Liz, the daughter of undocumented immigrants who returns to her hometown of Roswell, New Mexico. There, she discovers a secret about Max, her teenage crush. (Hint: He’s an alien.) Jeanine Mason has been cast in the role of Liz, with Originals star Nathan Parsons on board to play Max.

As for Trevino, he will play Kyle Valenti — played by Nick Wechsler in the original series — the son of the town sheriff. Trevino joins a cast that includes Pretty Little Liars star Tyler Blackburn as Sgt. Alex Manes, Lily Cowles as Isobel, Michael Vlamis as Michael, and Heather Hemmens as Maria.
