Joseph Morgan as KlausWhoa. WHOA. Who wants The Originals? According to THR, Julie Plec is working on a Vampire Diaries spinoff starring Joseph Morgan and Phoebe Tonkin. The idea will be set up in the April 25th episode:

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

Leslie Morgenstein and Gina Girolamo will also serve as executive producers. Reminder: The spinoff is not a sure thing, but even the fact that it’s in the works is a big deal! Thoughts? Do you want to watch The Originals?


UPDATE: Give Me My Remote has confirmation from the network that this is indeed in the works.

    Although I am really tired of the originals plot turmoring everywhere and will rejoice at the idea of them leaving TVD, the parent show will need to suffer to get the spin-off off the ground. Which I don’t think will pay off b/c the premise is not strong enough for the new show to thrive.

    If it were a “mini-series”, I would be on board. I don’t know why americans are afraid of strong short-lived series. Instead, they try to milk all ideas until both the viewers and cast are happy when it finally gets cancelled.

    All in all, I think it would be best if the originals had a good, strong send-off on TVD and we could move on. This spin-off is so obviously the result of the writers having driven themselves into a corner they can’t get out of.

    I think you are right about what you have said in your last sentence, but I see it as a good thing. They have created such strong characters and such rich potential for back stories, that it would be a shame to leave them all untold. I agree that it’s time for them, especially Klaus, to move on from TVD, but I’m glad we will get a chance to see more of them elsewhere. You might be right, a mini series could have worked, but they obviously have ideas in place for a longer term project. Why not just give them a chance, see a few episodes, see if they can hook you?

    hi would would just like to say I love this spin off show idea. i love the name of it and am a huge fan of joseph morgan’s character klaus i also love all the origainals as well. i just hope that if the spin off show takes hold and continues that the klaus and caroline fans will not lose their favorite couple. i would also like to say i love candice accola as well and think her character has a lot of potental to grow. i would love to see pilot of the spin off show.

  • Id

    I meant dontpout-lol

  • joann1990

    is this going to air in the uk though :)

  • Holly

    But the show will have to be mostly set in modern day as hayley is in it and she has only just join tvd and why would she be there unless klaus is forfilling their deal or he asked her along so kol wont be able to be in it cause elena killed him (well jeremy techniqualy did but hes dead so i have kinda forgiven him) so kol can only be in it if there is flashbacks whick there should be cause kol is the best character! Though i do think it would be funny to watch the scenes between bekah and hayley because i think their personalities would really clash

  • Holly

    Tyler wont go to new orleans as klaus is there and he will kill him if he see s him actualy i dont like tyler so yepp he should go to new orleans

    If the Original spin off is picked up for next year, the main cast will be Klaus (Joseph Morgan) ,Elijah (Daniel Gillies), Rebekah (Claire Holt). Supporting cast: Cami (Leah Marie Pipes), Marcel (Charles M. Davis), Hayley (Phoebe Tonkin). Cami is suppose to be the new love interest for Klaus. There will be plenty of flashback episodes and KOL (Nate Buzolic) and Finn (Caspar Zafer) will be in the flashbacks.

  • Charlotte Hocking

    Will it be airing in the uk?

  • Joe Colby

  • Sandy

    I loved the Originals much better than The Vampire diaries. I think some of the stories are getting samey with Vampire diaries so welcome the spin off.
