The CW Plans Potential THE VAMPIRE DIARIES Spinoff; Backdoor Pilot to Air in Spring

January 11, 2013 by  

The CW is looking to expand THE VAMPIRE DIARIES world — a rep for the network confirms that a backdoor pilot is in the works for a TVD spinoff, THE ORIGINALS, which would focus on Joseph Morgan’s Klaus.

According to Deadline, TVD newbie Phoebe Tonkin (Hayley) would also be a part of the spinoff, which would be about Klaus’ return 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.”

While spinoffs traditionally make me very wary, I’m curious to see how this backdoor pilot will turn out. As of now, it’s set to air on April 25th on The CW.

What do you think? Would you watch a Klaus-centric show? Or do you hope he stays put on THE VAMPIRE DIARIES?

    Bad idea. Klaus should stay in mystic falls and he should make up with Katherine so she can come back on the show too!

    Great idea. Anything that will get Klaus and the other Originals out of Mystic Falls. The show suffered so much during S3 because of the Klaus and even worse when he wasn’t killed off. Send him off to his own show. He’s definitely worn out his welcome. It would benefit him and Morgan to have a fresh start somewhere else IMO.

    Perfect idea! Klaus gone from The Vampire Diaries may get the series back to being good. Since Klaus came on, the show is just downgrading itself and making it just a repeat of “You must help me do this” “No Klaus, we won’t” “Well if you don’t I’ll kill everyone you’ve ever loved” “Well, I guess we better do this”

    Plus, the show needs Katherine back. She was amazing.
