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.

  • Far Superior to The Vampire Diaries

    I've seen a few episodes of TVD but haven't been too impressed by them. The Originals is almost like a completely different show, confined to New Orleans, as it takes the best characters from its parent show and gives them an excellent series, with twists, turns and unpredictable moments happening more than once per episode. It's one of the strongest shows on the CW and each episode just gets better and better.

    You don't have to be familiar with TVD to check this show out as well, as I wasn't when I gave it a go. Addictive, compelling and enthralling, The Originals is well worth a try if you're looking for something different to its parent series.moreless
  • why do they tease us

    i wish they wouldn't tease us by making us wait so long for the originals episodes I get very frustrated and why don't they make more to air the episodes twice a week or something grrrrr
  • much better than VD

    this spin off show is gonna take over the 'original' one.. :p
  • I really love this show

    First off you really don't need to have watched the Vampire Dairies to follow this show or really get into it. It may help but not necessary. I love the fact that this show is based out of New Orleans and how it brings the New Orleans culture to life with the vampires, witches, and of course werewolves. Having lived in New Orleans for 4 years believe me they got this spot on especially the cemeteries. The story line and character development is great and it keeps you on your toes and on the edge of your seat. The news development with Klause's and Haley's daughter is awesome can't wait to find out what powers the baby has if she lives. The arrival of Aunt Dahlia is almost here. Wow they really know how to keep the suspense and drama coming in this series. Over all I would recommend this TV series to anyone.moreless
  • Really enjoying this show

    I heard that Klaus was supposed to be taken off the Vampire Diaries at the end of the season that he was introduced, but they decided to keep him on since he was so great. I'm really glad they kept the Original Vampire storyline going in Vampire Diaries, and now this spin off. This show is much darker than Vampire Diaries. There are still some sappy characters, but for the most part it has a very good cast. Klaus and Elijah are great as always. I don't want to spoil it, so I'll just say that most of the additional characters in Season 2 are excellent. Awesome show!moreless

    The Originals “Night Has a Thousand Eyes” Review: Un-Awful Entry

    The much-feared Dahlia finally arrived in New Orleans and she was as terrifying as we suspected.


    The Originals "Exquisite Corpse" Review: Malice in Chains

    The Originals finally returned, and its first episode back was all about Rebekah's inner killer.
