What’s This TV Show About?
A spinoff of The Vampire Diaries and CW horror drama, The Originals stars Joseph Morgan, Daniel Gillies, Phoebe Tonkin, Charles Michael Davis, Yusuf Gatewood, Steven Krueger, Danielle Rose Russell, and Riley Voelkel. Guest stars in season five include Claire Holt, Nathaniel Buzolic, Candice King, and Summer Fontana. In order to keep Hope (Russell) safe, Klaus (Morgan), Elijah (Gillies), Rebekah (Holt), and Kol (Buzcolic) absorb the Hollow’s energy and leave New Orleans. Soon though, they’re forced to return, and evil will follow them.
Season Five Ratings
The fifth season of The Originals is averaging a 0.35 rating in the 18-49 demographic and 891,000 viewers. Compared to season four, that’s up by 10% and down by 5% in viewers. Learn how The Originals stacks up against the other CW TV shows.
Although it premiered with decent numbers for a show on the littlest network, there’s no need to use the ratings to predict whether The CW will cancel or renew The Originals for season six. Back in July of 2017, executive producer Julie Plec announced the fifth season would serve as the show’s final installment. There is a possible spinoff in the works, though. It would feature Matt Davis and Danielle Rose Russell reprising their respective roles of Alaric Saltzman and Hope Mikaelson. Reportedly, newcomers Aria Shahghasemi, Quincy Fouse, Jenny Boyd, and Kaylee Bryant are also on board. For now, I’ll keep an eye on the ratings and the trades and update this page with breaking developments. Subscribe for free The Originals cancellation or renewal alerts.
