Simmering with supernatural elements, this is The Originals, from The Vampire Diaries executive producer/writer Julie Plec. The first season of The Originals brought the most formidable creature on earth, the Original vampire-werewolf hybrid Klaus Mikaelson, back to his former home--the vibrant and supernaturally charged city of New Orleans. When he arrived, with his siblings Elijah and Rebekah not far behind, he was stunned to learn that werewolf Hayley Marshall was pregnant with his child. Though Elijah hoped that the news of a baby might help rebuild their fractured family, other forces threatened to destroy it further--namely, Marcel Gerard, Klaus's beloved vampire protégé, whom the Original siblings thought to be long dead, along with a dark secret that Marcel and Rebekah held for a century.
The Originals and Hayley soon found themselves caught in a bloody war between vampires and witches, the stakes raised by a vengeful teenage witch, Davina, and by Klaus's surprising connection to Cami, a student with a painful past. Meanwhile, Hayley helped her exiled werewolf family return to the French Quarter, unaware that a ruthless pack of wolves was already lurking in the city, waiting to stage a violent coup on the vampires. As the first season came to a dramatic close, the werewolves decimated the vampire community while the witches made a horrific assassination attempt against Klaus and Hayley's newborn daughter.
Season two finds our heroes adjusting to a new status quo, with the newly empowered werewolves controlling the city, Klaus struggling to adjust to new weaknesses and Elijah desperate to save Hayley--now a hybrid--from a vicious spiral of self-destruction.
