THE VAMPIRE DIARIES: Julie Plec Teases THE ORIGINALS Backdoor Spinoff, Potential Crossovers, and More

About three and a half months after the idea was first made public, THE ORIGINALS, the backdoor pilot for a potential THE VAMPIRE DIARIES spinoff, is finally airing tomorrow night.

“Klaus has gotten wind of witches in New Orleans making a move against him and of course he doesn’t like that, and is especially paranoid because of all the Silas shenanigans, and so he heads off to get to the bottom of that mystery,” THE VAMPIRE DIARIES executive producer Julie Plec teased of what kicks off the episode. “And Elijah, believing his brother to be up to something, follows him to try and get to the bottom of that mystery. And as the brothers are in New Orleans, we see they have a deep, rich history there. In fact, all the Original family, which at the time was Klaus, Elijah, Rebekah, and Kol, lived there off and on for several centuries and were part of the original founders of New Orleans; [they] laid the original bricks of the French Quarter. They have a history there, and as Elijah says at the end of the episode, ‘I can count on one hand the amount of times we were happy as a family and that was one of them.'”

Of course, things aren’t entirely smooth in New Orleans.

The potential THE VAMPIRE DIARIES spinoff, THE ORIGINALS — which would focus on the Original family — has booked another lead: THE VAMPIRE DIARIES’ Daniel Gillies. A Warner Bros. rep confirmed the Deadline report that Gillies (who has played TVD’s Elijah off-and-on since season 2) will be involved with the backdoor pilot.

Gillies joins fellow TVD castmembers Joseph Morgan (Klaus) and Phoebe Tonkin (Hayley), who already are committed to the potential spinoff.

Is there any other TVD cast members you hope make their way over if the spinoff becomes official?
