The Originals cancelled? No Season 5? Per THR, showrunner Michael Narducci will depart the CW series, fueling suggestions the show will be axed.
However, fans have been given some hope for Season 5, with creator Julie Plec primed to assume showrunning duties should the series get renewed.
Plec told the publication:
“Mike got an opportunity he couldn’t pass up. He has been a brilliant partner and friend and I’m going to miss him desperately.”
Is there no smoke without cancellation fire ala The Vampire Diaries? Is Plec’s arrival nothing more than false hope for an already doomed series, or can The Originals really survive for Season 5? Stay tuned…
