Storyline

A spin-off from The Vampire Diaries and set in New Orleans, The Originals centers on the Mikaelson siblings, otherwise known as the world's original vampires: Klaus (Joseph Morgan), Elijah (Daniel Gillies), and Rebekah (Claire Holt). Now Klaus must take down his protégé, Marcel (Charles Michael Davis), who is now in charge of New Orleans, in order to re-take his city, as he originally built New Orleans. Klaus departed from the city after being chased down by his father Mikael, while it was being constructed and Marcel took charge. As Klaus has returned after many years, his ego has provoked him to become the king of the city. "Every King needs an heir" says Klaus, accepting the unborn child. The child is a first to be born to a hybrid (part vampire, part werewolf) and a werewolf (Hayley). Written by Anaya Miller

Amazing, a must see!
6 November 2013 | by (the Netherlands) – See all my reviews

The Originals is amazing!! I'm a fan of the Vampire Diaries, and I really liked the pilot. This series is very refreshing! The Vampire Diaries are nowadays not really feeling it with some story lines. I liked Klaus very much in the Vampire Diaries. He is so powerful and on the other hand so vulnerable. He is nice to watch (read: he is very sexy). His brother Elijah and sister Rebekah are very nice characters too. Nice to see the relationships between those three. Besides them, there are plenty of other interesting characters. The series takes place in New Orleans. It's a city that never sleeps, and a perfect place for the series.

The Originals is a must see! Dark, fun and extremely exciting.
