‘Vampire Diaries’ Spinoff ‘The Originals’ in the Works

No joke my dear Vampire Diaries fans! The CW is actually considering making a second Vampire Diaries show focused entirely on the first vampires – The Originals. Yay!

Joseph-Morgan-joseph-morgan-32655785-960-720Titled The Originals (surprise surprise), the budding new CW series would be an spinoff revolving around the Original family led by Klaus (Joseph Morgan) and set up in a season-four Vampire Diaries episode. Executive producer Julie Plec, who is set to write the episode, is leading the spinoff, with Alloy Entertainment’s Leslie Morgenstein and Gina Girolamo as executive producers.

In The Vampire Diaries episode slated to air April 25, Klaus returns to the supernatural hotspot of the French Quarter of New Orleans, a town he helped build centuries ago, and is reunited with his wicked former protégé Marcel. The Secret Circle’s Phoebe Tonkin, who joined Vampire Diaries this season in a pivotal recurring role, will also star.

The Originals, as we know, are the first existing vampires in the world and were first seen in season two. They have become a huge part of The Vampire Diaries since, with the sexy Morgan proving to be a fan favorite. And we just may get a whole lot more of him and the other Originals! The project is still in the works, so it’s entirely possible it could get nixed before ever airing. But here’s hoping all goes well and we get a new show starring The Originals.

What do you think about this spinoff? Are you for it or against it? Let us know in a comment below.

Moonlight (aka Amanda) loves to write about, read about and learn about everything pertaining to vampires. You will most likely find her huddled over a book of vampire folklore with coffee in hand. Touch her coffee and she may bite you (and not in the fun way).


  1. You know I used to really love watching The Vampire Diaries, but recently I’ve just started losing interest. It’s just gotten a little dry I guess.

  2. Love to see some more about the originals but then I think they’ll need to disappear in the vampire diaries. Maybe they could create a new bad guy or (don’t kill me for this) maybe end the Vampire diaries? Don’t know why but I’m losing interest.

  3. I’m all for a spin-off featuring the originals. As much as I still love The Vampire Diaries, I do get a bit bored with all the preachiness of it, and only truly love Elena (or Nina) when she’s revelling in her vampire self with Damon or when she’s playing Katherine. Bad Elena/Nina is so much better than good. And quite frankly, I’m bored to death with Stefan and Caroline too. They are way too judgemental. Sick to death of everyone trying to be a good vampire. Don’t they know that’s why Damon is such a fan favourite? Same goes for Klaus. People love them because they are bad. So a series about the Originals who revel in their badness… hell yeah. I’m on board.
