Judging by this year’s last ditch Season 5 renewal, The Originals may not live to see Season 6, but it could spawn a spinoff series, TVLine reports:
Sources confirm to TVLine that The Originals is bracing for a significant time jump, setting the stage for a much older Hope — think late teens — to be introduced in Season 5. The time jump could arrive as soon as the June 23 season finale (The CW, 8/7c); casting for the “new” role, currently being portrayed by the phenomenal Summer Fontana, is now underway.
We also hear there’s potential for adult Hope to snag her own spinoff, though neither The CW nor Warner Bros. TV would comment on that either. Of course, if Hope does end up at the center of a third series in the Vampire Diaries universe, it would be sort of like a prophecy coming to fruition — albeit one foretold by executive producer Julie Plec.
With The Vampire Diaries dead and The Originals expected to follow it in the next 12 months, would you watch the potential spinoff series in the 2018-19 season? Stay tuned to find out if it happens…
Michael Brown says
The Originals was the best show on night time television. I loved how The Michalsons were made into the original vampires and came up thru out the centuries but stay together as a family. Every one had their issues but supported each other. There was chemistry among the cast and it was fun to watch. I for one am sad the power that be would kill a show that had such a strong following. This was a show that should have been left along. I cried at the end knowing I would never see this family in action again. I pray some one like SciFi would pick them up and restart the magic.I will miss the Michaelsons, truly.
I’m so sad that The Originals decided not to go on! Best show in a long time. Please come back!
