A few weeks ago we brought the game-changing news for 'The Vampire Diaries' fans that the show's April 25 episode would serve as a backdooor pilot for potential spin-off vehicle 'The Originals,' following fan-favorite character Klaus (Joseph Morgan) as he returns to New Orleans' French Quarter. The CW has yet to make any kind of official decision regarding the spin-off, but for now 'The Originals' has cast yet another familiar face for the episode. Prior guest star Daniel Gillies will reprise his role as Elijah for the episode, becoming a regular on the spin-off, but is 'The Originals' a sure thing?

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.
