TV show description:
This dramatic series is a spin-off of The Vampire Diaries.

A thousand years ago, the Original Vampire family swore to each other that “Family is power.” They pledged to remain together, always and forever. Now, hundreds of years later, the bonds of family are broken. Time, tragedy and hunger for power have torn the Original Family apart.

Klaus Mikaelson (Joseph Morgan) is the original vampire-werewolf hybrid and he’s now returned to New Orleans, the city his family helped build. It’s the same city from which he and his siblings, Elijah (Daniel Gillies) and Rebekah (Claire Holt), were exiled a century ago by their relentless hunter father.

He’s drawn back by a mysterious tip that a plot is brewing against him in the supernatural French Quarter. Klaus is surprised that the city still feels like home to him — despite the fact that he’s been away for decades.

Curious as to why Klaus would return to the one place he swore he would never set foot again, Elijah follows his brother and learns that Klaus’ onetime flame, the beautiful and rebellious werewolf Hayley (Phoebe Tonkin), has also come to the French Quarter. She’s searching for clues about her family history.

Hayley has fallen into the hands of a powerful witch named Sophie Deveraux (Daniella Pineda). When Sophie reveals to the brothers the unbelievable news that Hayley is carrying Klaus’ unborn child, Elijah realizes that the Original family has been given a second chance at humanity and the redemption they desperately crave.

Klaus is not so easily convinced that a potential heir is of any importance. He’s more intrigued by his recent unexpected reunion with his former protégé, Marcel (Charles Michael Davis). He’s a charismatic but diabolical vampire who now has total control over the human and supernatural inhabitants of New Orleans.

Tensions between the town’s supernatural factions — vampires, witches, werewolves and humans — are nearing a breaking point as Marcel commands his devoted followers and rules with absolute power. For Klaus, the idea of answering to his powerful protégé is unthinkable.

As Klaus vows to reclaim what was once his — the power, the city and his family — he realizes that Elijah is right and that his unborn child could be the key to the Originals’ return to power.

While they wait for their sister Rebekah to join them in New Orleans, Klaus and Elijah form an uneasy alliance with Sophie and her community of witches. Sophie has been turned into a revolutionary by the loss of her own sister at Marcel’s hands, and by the mysterious disappearance of a young witch named Davina (Danielle Campbell). She is willing to do anything – including making a deal with the Original family – to break Marcel’s power over the witches of the French Quarter.

Even the human population of the Quarter is unwittingly drawn into this supernatural battleground. A recent arrival to New Orleans, Cami (Leah Pipes) is a whip-smart psychology grad student who appears happy to pursue her studies by day and work nights as a bartender. She’s unaware that many of her customers are vampires.

Hiding the dark secret that has brought her to New Orleans, Cami soon finds herself fascinated by both Klaus and Marcel, and totally unaware of the danger that they pose for her and everyone around her.

Now, in the midst of a thriving New Orleans, a city known to be steeped in magic and history, the long-smoldering war is about to reach a fever pitch, and the Originals stand as the catalyst. As lines are drawn and strategies are laid out, one truth will echo through the French Quarter – power begins and ends with family.

i am so upset that nobody likes TVD and the orginals. i just want to hear from the fans their reason why they dont like TVD and The Orginals i love these shows so much and i want both shows to be renewed


Sophia December 21, 2014 at 3:46 pm

TVD will not get cancelled if TO does.

TVD is five years older and declining in quality (even though season 6 is better than season 5 so far.)

Yet TVD is still getting more viewers. That says it all. This show is dead in the water. Cancel it and make space for something better.


Sophia December 21, 2014 at 3:43 pm

Cancel it.

They have not only made a mess of a show that had everything they needed to make it great, they have ruined some of my favourite characters all to prop up a character who isn’t likeable and is played by an actress who can’t even act.

This show leaves a bitter taste in TVD fandom. I want Klaus, Elijah and Rebekah back. Not whatever these characters are supposed to be. Watered down, crying all the time and having their world revolve around Hayley and that freaky baby that has ruined TVD mythology.

This show is offensive to fans who loyally followed TVD and The Original family.

Renew it!!!!! Love it.

I am just too upset that the people aren’t taking the time and not watching the orginals and i feel like that they don’t like it

the thing is that TVD and the the orginals are spin off shows and if one of them gets canceled that means TVD Goes too

This is the best show on tv right now. Please, please, please renew it! I look forward to it each week. I love the Voice, but I skip the first hour every time to watch the Originals.
I don’t understand why they put it on Mondays against the Voice, Monday night football, Big Bang Theory, etc., but I’ll watch it no matter what else is on!
