The Originals: 

“The Originals” Now Premieres Thursday, October 3, 9:00-10:00 p.m., Following the Season Premiere of “The Vampire Diaries”

This is one TV spinoff that I am really looking forward to - although, I DO NOT see Klaus as a father figure ... but then again, he does have something very compelling about his nature that just may win me over in the end :)

Having just recently finished the 3rd book in the Witchwood Estate Series, I am all about witches right now. Hence the reason that I am looking forward to the "Originals". New Orleans appears to be teaming not only with Vampires, but witches, too! Cant wait to see what witchery these new witches drum up to keep Klaus and his family on their toes.

I have to say that my favorite "Original" is Elijah. Are you with me?

I am, however, a diehard Damon fan through and through from the Vampire Diaries. And an Ian and Nina fan, too. Very sad to hear about their recent breakup in real life. Can't help but wonder how that is going to go down in TV land for Damon and Elena in The Vampire Diaries season 5. Is somebody going to want to rip someone's head off for real! Or have their recent movie endeavors allowed them to move of from heartbreak enough to allow them to slip back into their much loved "in love" TV characters?  Time will tell...

Family is power. The Original Vampire family swore it to each other a thousand years ago. They pledged to remain together, always and forever. Now, centuries have passed and the bonds of family are broken. Time, tragedy and hunger for power have torn the Original Family apart. When Klaus Mikaelson, the original vampire-werewolf hybrid, receives a mysterious tip that a plot is brewing against him in the supernatural melting pot that is the French Quarter of New Orleans, he returns to the city his family helped build. Klaus’ questions lead him to a reunion with his diabolical former protégé, Marcel, a charismatic vampire who has total control over the human and supernatural inhabitants of New Orleans.

Determined to help his brother find redemption, Elijah follows Klaus and soon learns that the werewolf Hayley has also come to the French Quarter searching for clues to her family history, and has fallen into the hands of a powerful witch named Sophie. Tensions between the town’s supernatural factions are nearing a breaking point as Marcel commands his devoted followers and rules with absolute power. For Klaus, the thought of answering to his powerful protégé is unthinkable, and he vows to reclaim what was once his – the power, the city and his family. While they wait to see if their sister Rebekah will leave Mystic Falls and join them, Klaus and Elijah form an uneasy alliance with the witches to ensure that New Orleans will be ruled by THE ORIGINALS once again.


The series stars Joseph Morgan (“The Vampire Diaries,” “Immortals”) as Klaus, Daniel Gillies (“The Vampire Diaries,” “Saving Hope”) as Elijah, Claire Holt (“The Vampire Diaries,” “Pretty Little Liars”) as Rebekah, Phoebe Tonkin (“The Vampire Diaries,” “The Secret Circle”) as Hayley, Charles Michael Davis (“Grey’s Anatomy,” “Switched at Birth”) as Marcel, Daniella Pineda (“The Fitzgerald Family Christmas,” “Homeland”) as Sophie, Leah Pipes (“The Deep End,” “Sorority Row”) as Cami and Danielle Campbell (“Starstruck,” “Tyler Perry’s Madea’s Witness Protection”) as Davina.

And from Wetpaint -

The CW"s new show The Originals will premiere October 15, and now the network has a new promo so you won't forget the date. (Just how far in advance can we set our DVRs?) The promo is all footage from the backdoor pilot, which aired during Season 4 of The Vampire Diaries. A brand-new Season 1, Episode 1 will air on the CW in the fall, but until then, we have to take what clues we can from footage we've already seen. Hey, watching Marcel (Charles Michael Davis) and Klaus (Joseph Morgan) try to one up each other never gets old! Courtesy of Wetpaint
