Show Summary

The Originals is a spin-off series originating from The Vampire Diaries. A thousand years ago the Original Vampire family swore to each other that family is power and they pledged to remain together forever. Centuries have passed and the family bonds are broken. Klaus Mikaelson heads to the French Quarter of New Orleans, a city his family helped build. His former protégé, Marcel, is now in control. Elijah follows Klaus to New Orleans where they discover werewolf Haley and a powerful witch named Sophie. Klaus has no intention of answering to his now powerful protégé and is determined to reclaim the city and the power along with reuniting his family. While waiting for Rebekah to join them, Klaus, Elijah and the witches form an uneasy alliance to make sure THE ORIGINALS once again rule New Orleans.

  • Call me naive...

    But I was expecting the Buffy-Angel relation when I heard of a Vampire Diaries spin-off. It's just a piece of crap spitting out an even worse piece of crap.
  • Brilliant Cast and Amazing Show

    I love that the anchor point of this show is family unlike the The Vampire Diaries which has its basis on the love triangle between Stefan,Damon and show is very mature and the actors especially Joseph Morgan and Daniel Gillies are incredibly talented
  • Amazing show!!!

    I love this show, the baby was adorable and the finale was lovely. However maybe they could add a tiny bit more love, maybe not as much as tvd but I think Elijah and Hayley should actually be a couple. Plus why is season 2 of this and season 6 of tvd coming in October, it'ages away yet)-:
  • This show is PERFECTION! I want More!!!

    I LOVE this show. Family over everything, always and forever. I'm sick and tired of romance ruining a great story esp when it comes to horror/supernatural shows/movies. Vampire Diaries love triangle with Nina and the brothers is overrated and boring just stop it. FINALLY we get to see a show focused on family instead of love and women jumping from one bed to another after one date! I CAN'T WAIT FIR SEASON 2!moreless
  • Class

    Kinda backwards but didn't watch vampire diaries till after I watched Originals first so didn't know it was spin-off after catching up with both got say Originals season 1 was class can't wait for season 2

    The Vampire Diaries' Nina Dobrev Is Headed to The Originals, But Not as Elena

    The actress has already played three different characters on TVD, and now she'll play a fourth on the show's popular spin-off.
