Did The Vampire Diaries series finale seal The Originals‘ fate? Per THR:
Friday’s series finale alluded to “another story” for character Caroline Forbes (Candice King), who ends up opening a school for supernatural children like her own — funded by none other than her former love, Klaus (Joseph Morgan). While the duo will not interact on the upcoming season of The Originals, they potentially could in the future.
EP Julie Plec admits that the end could be nigh, with the seeding of a potential spinoff to “launch off the end of The Originals“:
“Obviously our timelines did not match up, so Caroline and Klaus are not coming face to face in this season. That being said, we do have crossover elements in the upcoming season of The Originals that’s about to start airing and it all brings it back to what I see as a future for either The Originals or another piece of the franchise to launch off of the end of The Originals. So I look forward to being able to play around in that sandbox and see if I can make something of it.”
Can The Originals survive in a post-Vampire Diaries world, or will it be replaced by a second TVD spinoff in the not too distant future?
Stay tuned as we continue to monitor the cancel/renew status of The Originals Season 5…
