At the end of last night’s Vampire Diaries episode, fans got their first look at "The Originals," both the title of next week’s episode and the CW’s likely spinoff.
Next Thursday night, the much-anticipated backdoor pilot will take viewers to New Orleans, where Klaus (Joseph Morgan) has some special ties.
We’ll meet his former protege, Marcel, who has apparently created a Utopia for supernatural beings, a reality that seems to throw Klaus for a loop.
His Vampire Diaries siblings/cohorts Elijah (Daniel Gillies) and Rebecca (Claire Holt) are also on board for the new show, should it get the green light.
Watch the preview for The Originals now and see what you think:
