According to a recent article on Entertainment Weekly, the CW is working on and developing a spinoff of The Vampire Diaries. The working title of this spinoff is currently The Originals and it aims to focus on the story of the original family of vampires. Of course, it is going to star Joseph Morgan (Klaus), who has become quite a popular character on the show despite his evil nature.
Australian actress Phoebe Tonkin, who plays Michael Trevino’s (Taylor Lockwood) werewolf friend Hayley, is also set to be apart of the cast for this spinoff.
The CW has decided to air what is called a “backdoor pilot” with The Vampire Diaries fourth season to see how it does with television audiences. Be sure to tune in on April 25, 2013 for the pilot episode in which Klaus “returns to the supernatural melting pot that is the French Quarter of New Orleans — a town he helped build centuries ago — and is reunited with his diabolical former protégé Marcel.”
Do you think this spinoff will be successful? Will you watch the pilot this April? Has Klaus become one of your favorite characters on The Vampire Diaries?
