The Vampire Diaries and The Originals are teaming up for a special crossover event on Friday night. The two CW series have not crossed paths since the first season of The Originals. That series is now in its third season.
This crossover will involve Stefan running to hide in New Orleans because he knows there is one location in the city that magic cannot enter. He has now been marked by a vampire hunter, who is related to one of The Five.
CW has released a photo and a poster for the special episode. Caroline Dries teased the special episode in an interview with TV Line.
“We knew we wanted to see Joseph [Morgan] and Paul Wesley together on screen; they’ve had the longest history on the shows, apart from Elijah and Katherine. Now, they have some interesting conversation over some bourbon. Stefan is forced into exile because of his story, which won’t be for a few more episodes. He ends up going to New Orleans for protection, and when you’re in New Orleans … of course you’re going to run into your mortal enemy. It’s a fun, rich, interesting story that starts on The Vampire Diaries and successfully transitions into The Originals.”
The Vampire Diaries and The Originals moved to Friday nights last month after several seasons on Thursday nights.
