In yesterday’s episode of The Vampire Diaries, we saw one of the Original vampires return. This gives room for a whole new story! Yesterday, InsideTV got their hands on some more information about the TVD spin-off titled “The Originals”, which is a new CW series announced back in January.
The story will see Klaus and his siblings end up in New Orleans after they hear that there are witches conspiring against them. While they are there, they find out that there is a way for them to reunite their family in the city they themselves had helped settle. Now it’s run by a character named Marcel, who will most likely make an appearance in one of the TVD episodes this season.
Julie Plec, the creator of “The Originals”, commented that “With luck, over a long stretch of time and many, many seasons, The Originals will ultimately be the redemption tale of Klaus, and, possibly, the unravelling of Elijah, who is going to have to maybe get his hands dirty in an effort to keep his brother in check.”
So that is good news for those TVD fans out there, because it means that there are still many more seasons with lots of vampire action in the making! The idea of a redemption for Klaus sounds very ambitious, but Plec soothes our worries, by mentioning that the writers know what they are doing: “I know wherever they take Klaus, it will be layers on the character that he already is. It won’t be a sudden change of direction where he’s suddenly good. He will always have done these terrible things which he has done, and so he will always have these things to haunt him. I think he possibly is capable of redemption, if there was someone understanding enough to forgive him…. It would be a tremendous character arc.”
So are you as excited as we are? Or would you much rather just see some more Original action in The Vampire Diaries itself? Let us know!
