"The Originals" (TV show) is a drama series on The CW that is spin-off of "The Vampire Diaries."

Family is power. The Original Vampire family swore it to each other a thousand years ago. They pledged to remain together, always and forever. Now, centuries have passed and the bonds of family are broken. Time, tragedy and hunger for power have torn the Original Family apart. When Klaus Mikaelson, the original vampire-werewolf hybrid, receives a mysterious tip that a plot is brewing against him in the supernatural melting pot that is the French Quarter of New Orleans, he returns to the city his family helped build. Klaus' questions lead him to a reunion with his diabolical former protégé, Marcel, a charismatic vampire who has total control over the human and supernatural inhabitants of New Orleans. Determined to help his brother find redemption, Elijah follows Klaus and soon learns that the werewolf Hayley has also come to the French Quarter searching for clues to her family history, and has fallen into the hands of a powerful witch named Sophie. Tensions between the town's supernatural factions are nearing a breaking point as Marcel commands his devoted followers and rules with absolute power. For Klaus, the thought of answering to his powerful protégé is unthinkable, and he vows to reclaim what was once his — the power, the city and his family. While they wait to see if their sister Rebekah will leave Mystic Falls and join them, Klaus and Elijah form an uneasy alliance with the witches to ensure that New Orleans will be ruled by "The Originals" once again.

The cast includes Joseph Morgan ("The Vampire Diaries," "Immortals") as Klaus, Daniel Gillies ("The Vampire Diaries," "Saving Hope") as Elijah, Claire Holt ("The Vampire Diaries," "Pretty Little Liars") as Rebekah, Phoebe Tonkin ("The Vampire Diaries," "The Secret Circle") as Hayley, Charles Michael Davis ("Grey's Anatomy," "Switched at Birth") as Marcel, Daniella Pineda ("The Fitzgerald Family Christmas," "Homeland") as Sophie, Leah Pipes ("The Deep End," "Sorority Row") as Cami and Danielle Campbell ("Starstruck," "Tyler Perry's Madea's Witness Protection") as Davina.



Season 2

The Original vampire-werewolf hybrid Klaus Mikaelson and his brother Elijah have spent one thousand years fighting to protect their dysfunctional family, but now that Klaus and the hybrid Hayley share a daughter, Hope, the stakes are higher than ever. In the second season, Klaus and Elijah united against their resurrected mother, Esther, who tortured them with demons from their pasts in an effort to persuade them to surrender their vampire bodies and become mortal. Esther, however, was only the harbinger, as Klaus learned that a long-standing curse had marked Hope for a life of isolation and terror at the hands of Esther's sister, the witch Dahlia. In his quest to defeat Dahlia and protect his daughter, Klaus showed little mercy, destroying bonds with even his closest allies as he fought to get close enough to Dahlia to kill her. Eliminating Dahlia came at a great cost to the family, leaving Klaus isolated, Elijah furious and Hayley cursed to roam the bayou in her wolf form, separated from her daughter once again.

Season 3

Despite the family turmoil, season three finds the French Quarter enjoying a new semblance of supernatural peace. Having taken up the prestigious mangle of Regent to the witches, the rebellious Davina rules with an iron fist, refusing to allow any magical favors for vampires — even her longtime friend Marcel, who is making his way back to his former glory as vampire king of New Orleans. The long-lost Mikaelson sister, Freya is working to rebuild the family she has always dreamed of, while enjoying her newfound freedom and relishing in New Orleans's night life. Meanwhile, the Mikaelson brothers are estranged, and given that Hayley and her pack continue to suffer mightily at the hands of Klaus' petty vengeance, Elijah refuses to entertain the idea of forgiving his brother. Still, Klaus remains on his best behavior, focusing on his art and attending regular therapy sessions with Cami.

The relative quiet, however, comes to an end when Vincent and Cami find themselves caught up in a surprising mystery involving the newest resident of New Orleans: Lucien, the first vampire ever sired by the Mikaelsons a thousand years ago. His arrival in the city shakes up the status quo for all of the supernatural factions, but none more so than the Originals themselves. Upon reuniting with Klaus, Lucien shares news of a prophecy that foretells a gruesome end to the Mikaelson family — a prophecy that may leave the Originals unable to trust even their closest allies.

"The Originals" is from Bonanza Productions Inc. in association with My So-Called Company, Alloy Entertainment, Warner Bros. Television and CBS Television Studios. Julie Plec ("The Vampire Diaries," "Kyle XY," "Wasteland"), Leslie Morgenstein ("The Vampire Diaries," "Gossip Girl") and Gina Girolamo ("The Lying Game") are executive producers.
