TVD/The Originals‘ Matt Davis and Danielle Rose Russell, who plays Hope on The Originals, are set to star in the potential new spinoff series — confirmed as being in development at the CW last summer — along with Aria Shahghasemi, who plays a friend of Hope’s in the upcoming fifth and final season of The Originals, and Quincy Fouse, Jenny Boyd and Kaylee Bryant, who will play new characters.
Unlike The Originals, which started as a back-door pilot episode of The Vampire Diaries, I hear the proposed new spinoff will not film a planted or regular pilot. Word is that the new show — said to be revolving around the younger generation Originals — will get a short video presentation, largely compiled from scenes in the final 13-episode season of The Originals, which has been designed to set up the potential offshoot.
