Simmering with supernatural elements and featuring familiar and fan-favourite characters from the immensely popular drama The Vampire Diaries, it's The Originals, from The Vampire Diaries executive producer/writer Julie Plec. This sexy new series centres on the Original vampire family and the dangerous vampire/werewolf hybrid, Klaus, who returns to the magical melting pot that is the French Quarter of New Orleans--a town he helped build centuries ago. Acting on a mysterious tip that a plot is brewing against him, Klaus' questions lead him to a reunion with his diabolical former protégé, Marcel, a charismatic vampire who has total control over the human and supernatural inhabitants of the Crescent City. Determined to help his brother Klaus find redemption, Elijah follows Klaus and soon learns that Hayley has also come to the French Quarter searching for clues to her family history...and has fallen into the hands of a powerful witch named Sophie. Elijah is soon forced to side with Marcel's enemies in order to keep Klaus in line and to help Hayley. Meanwhile, Klaus and Elijah's sister, Rebekah, must decide if she will leave Mystic Falls to join her brothers in New Orleans and help them to reclaim their storied hometown and all its extraordinary offerings. With the same calibre of thrilling drama as The Vampire Diaries, this is The Originals.
As Original vampire-werewolf hybrid Klaus Mikaelson returned to the vibrant, supernaturally charged city of New Orleans, he was stunned to learn - along with siblings Elijah and Rebekah - that Hayley, a werewolf, was pregnant with his child, and his vampire protégé, Marcel, whom the Original siblings had thought long dead, was ruling the French Quarter. Soon a bloody war escalated between vampires and witches, the stakes raised by powerful teenage witch Davina, and by Klaus's bond with Cami, a student with a painful past, and a ruthless pack of wolves seized the opportunity to stage a violent coup. Now, in season two, a new status quo must be adjusted to, as the newly empowered werewolves control the city. Plus, Klaus struggles with weaknesses and Elijah fights to save Hayley - now a hybrid - from a vicious spiral of self-destruction. Joseph Morgan, Daniel Gillies, Phoebe Tonkin and Charles Michael Davis star, among others.
