The hits just keep on coming! After NBC announced that it would renew five of its major series for additional 22-episode seasons, now The CW has followed suit with a few pickups of their own. Not only will 'The Vampire Diaries' spin-off 'The Originals' officially go to series, but freshman drama 'Beauty and the Beast' and Rachel Bilson's 'Hart of Dixie' will return for additional seasons as well!
For months now we've been hearing about the 'Vampire Diaries' Klaus-centric spinoff 'The Originals,' to be presented in a backdoor pilot in the April 25 'TVD' episode of the same name. Now, in addition to the teasery photos we've seen, The CW has given us our first official look at 'The Originals' through its trailer, but can Joseph Morgan's Klaus hack it on his own in New Orleans?
The CW seems to have opened a hole in its fall lineup recently, removing 'Cult' off the schedule in a move that likely represents cancellation. And while 'The Vampire Diaries' has already been renewed for a fifth season, will upcoming backdoor pilot / spinoff 'The Originals' find a place on the lineup? The April 25 episode already has its own full poster, so check it out inside and learn what will happen when Klaus moves to New Orleans!
Similar to what's going on with 'Once Upon A Time' these days, hit CW drama 'The Vampire Diaries' will soon test the waters of a spinoff when April 25 episode "The Originals" serves as a backdoor pilot for a potential Klaus-centric spinoff of the same name. The new series would be set in the majesty of New Orleans and feature characters old and new, so how would you like a first look at the new series for 'Vampire Diaries' fans everywhere?
The CW has achieved a modicum of success in its most recent run, scoring hits with show's like 'Arrow' and its only real casualty as that of freshman medical drama 'Emiliy Owens, M.D.' Still, if you want to score a hit, use what you know, right? Hence, the network has begun optioning mega-hit series 'The Vampire Diaries' for its own spin-off series, tentatively titled 'The Originals,' to be introduced in a backdoor pilot later this season.
