The Vampire Diaries spin-off gets an 'Original' poster

In New Orleans, the air is thick with blood...

That's The CW's tease for The Originals, the April 25 episode of The Vampire Diaries that also serves as a backdoor pilot for a spinoff revolving around Klaus, Rebekah and Elijah!

ETonline scored an exclusive first look at the promotional poster for this hotly anticipated episode, which sends Klaus to New Orleans with questions only his former protege Marcel (played by Charles Michael Davis) can answer. Elijah follows his brother to New Orleans in hopes of helping him find redemption, only to discover Hayley (played by Phoebe Tonkin) has also traveled to The French Quarter with questions!

Should The Originals get picked up by The CW (we'll find out for certain in May), Claire Holt will join Joseph Morgan, Daniel Gillies, Davis and Tonkin in the New Orleans-set drama!

The Vampire Diaries airs Thursdays at 8 p.m. on The CW.

CW's marketing department must have the tiniest budget possible. The only thing they can afford is photoshop.
amber_protocol 12th-Apr-2013 12:00 am (UTC)
At least TVD gets promo posters like this, so many of their shows don't. So yeah, it does have the tiniest budget lol.
advo 12th-Apr-2013 12:39 am (UTC)
True. But really, how much could it possibly cost them to make these lame-o photoshopped posters for the other shows too?
megan_s_song 12th-Apr-2013 03:24 am (UTC)
Pretty sure all of their Supernatural bumps are from season 3
boogalooshaman 12th-Apr-2013 12:00 am (UTC)
So the spin-off has the same name? What?
amber_protocol 12th-Apr-2013 12:02 am (UTC)
No, the episode is a Vampire Diaries one is titled "The Originals" which is what the spin-off will be called.
boogalooshaman 12th-Apr-2013 12:07 am (UTC)
Ah, gotcha. Ty :)
cupkate 13th-Apr-2013 04:48 am (UTC)
I'm putting my money on Original Sin. So cheesy, perfect for CW.

Elijah follows his brother to New Orleans in hopes of helping him find redemption

Rmeeee. Redemption for an unrepentant mass-murderer? Sigh.
berrysara 12th-Apr-2013 12:43 am (UTC)
But he cries after he murders people! So he totes deserves redemption, duh [/TVD logic]
amber_protocol 12th-Apr-2013 01:53 am (UTC)
He only murders people because he's so ~lonely~. Ugh, I hate how stupid he is, you wouldn't be so lonely if you weren't a CONTROLLING, DOUCHEY, MASS-MURDERING SERIAL KILLER! But that's too logical for his tiny pea brain to comprehend, and if he didn't murder the shit out of countless innocent people then what would he do with his life?
helyanwe89 12th-Apr-2013 02:42 am (UTC)
Well, it's not like Stefan and Damon lose sleep over all the people they've slaughtered and Julie Plec considers them to be the "heroes" but really they're not really any better than Klaus. She may do the same thing to Klaus that she did to Damon.
brightstarmara 12th-Apr-2013 11:01 am (UTC)
Yeah, but like, he had like, a tear. And he like, that one time, like, drew a snowflake.
knopes 12th-Apr-2013 12:02 am (UTC)
lbr they're gonna pick up this series because it will probably be a hit for the CW.
amber_protocol 12th-Apr-2013 12:03 am (UTC)
Prayer circle that it does so Klaroline never happens.
marchsky 12th-Apr-2013 12:10 am (UTC)
IA. I feel like one of the few people left who don't want Klaroline to happen.
knopes 12th-Apr-2013 12:25 am (UTC)
Well, I don't watch TVD but here's me hoping that they will pick up this series then.
sherrilina 12th-Apr-2013 12:27 am (UTC)
Lol IKR? At this point I just want Klaus OFF of TVD, so if a spin-off is going to make that happen then more power to it!
helyanwe89 12th-Apr-2013 02:44 am (UTC)
He actually listens to what she has to say and he legitimately cares about her. I don't really think they should jump in bed together, but I think that them starting to become friends is a good thing.
beckyhelene 12th-Apr-2013 04:55 pm (UTC)
I'm surprised that there's actually more people who dislike Klaroline, I thought I was in the serious minority in regards to that. Yay! I feel less alone in the world now, lol.
advo 12th-Apr-2013 12:09 am (UTC)
They will definitely pick it up but dunno about it being a hit. The Originals are popular online but that doesn't really mean the casual audience feel the same.
sherrilina 12th-Apr-2013 12:28 am (UTC)
IDK they didn't pick up the last back-door pilot for GG...although they went ahead and still made a show set in the 1980s, go figure.
welurklate 12th-Apr-2013 12:03 am (UTC)
there's a black dude on this show now???? and he hasn't died?????

amber_protocol 12th-Apr-2013 12:04 am (UTC)
It's only his first appearance, give them a couple of episodes. But no, looks like this dude may actually make it a whole season, holy shit.
advo 12th-Apr-2013 12:10 am (UTC)
Well. He is hot... and most importantly, a man. Makes all the difference for Julie.
holyfrijoles_2 12th-Apr-2013 12:06 am (UTC)
Ikr? He's even in the foreground of the poster and everything.
babbss 12th-Apr-2013 12:28 am (UTC)
lol the first thing i thought of tbh.
sherrilina 12th-Apr-2013 12:30 am (UTC)
Well he's ~evil/the villain, so he has to be around a little while at least!
helyanwe89 12th-Apr-2013 02:47 am (UTC)
I'm pretty sure he's one of the main characters and the vampire who's been running New Orleans.
just444 12th-Apr-2013 12:04 am (UTC)
the CW always has terrible poster
angelmonster 12th-Apr-2013 12:04 am (UTC)
Eaugh her and Nick? My least two favorite hard terms, bye bye bitches.
oasisfan 12th-Apr-2013 12:04 am (UTC)
Needs Kol
annita008 12th-Apr-2013 12:21 am (UTC)
me too...i hope they bring him back somehow
helyanwe89 12th-Apr-2013 02:47 am (UTC)
It really does. I don't think I'll ever get over the way he was killed off.
bigbluebirdie 12th-Apr-2013 12:05 am (UTC)
There's a black person on TVD who isn't a witch?
crazyventures 12th-Apr-2013 12:18 am (UTC)
But the main witch in this show is . . . white

Never change, Julie Plec
bigbluebirdie 12th-Apr-2013 12:22 am (UTC)
I'm behind on a few episodes. Is Silas the main witch now? I thought it was Bonnie?
sherrilina 12th-Apr-2013 12:31 am (UTC)
Lol ikr--but apparently he is instead ~oppressing~ white witches...who now apparently exist. Go figure.
professor_chaos 12th-Apr-2013 12:09 am (UTC)
i've seen better paint by numbers than that poster
tuggernuts 12th-Apr-2013 12:10 am (UTC)
unnecessary show

just build a good "originals" storyline into VD

it needs it
advo 12th-Apr-2013 12:13 am (UTC)
Disagree. There isn't room on TVD for a good Originals storyline. That's why their origin story ended up being such a mess.

TVD has always been a teen show about a boring love triangle and the Originals don't really fit in. I think them having their own show is much better for their characterisations, but we'll see if it's successful or not. Their popularity will really be tested now.
amber_protocol 12th-Apr-2013 12:16 am (UTC)
I'd rather the Originals fuck off to their own show because they've eaten TVD and it's become all about Elena and them. Hopefully Tyler will come back once Klaus is out of Mystic Falls and they can go back to having individual story lines about all of the characters instead of them all being sucked into one of the main two that there currently are now.
365reasonswhy 12th-Apr-2013 12:19 am (UTC)
Yep. The only Original I have any use for is Elijah and if he's a package deal with Klaus and Rebekah, I can do without him. The only other redeeming thing about their storyline was Sebastian Roche as Mikael.
helyanwe89 12th-Apr-2013 02:49 am (UTC)
TVD has always been all about Elena. That's my main problem with the show - the world should not revolve around Elena and most of the characters act like it does.
ichdontthinksoo 12th-Apr-2013 12:11 am (UTC)
I was just watching Ian Somerhalder fuck the shit out of a girl on an HBO show. That's all I have to add to this post.
foureyedgirl 12th-Apr-2013 12:15 am (UTC)
lol. tell me you love me. i bought it just because of him but still haven't watched it lol
ichdontthinksoo 12th-Apr-2013 12:17 am (UTC)
yes, that's the one! I can't even remember what the show was about, it was mostly just filled with moments that would serve as excuses for the sex scenes lol
reidacted 12th-Apr-2013 01:03 am (UTC)
How was it?
shunda84 12th-Apr-2013 03:05 am (UTC)
I would add the gif but someone might get a nighttime shock. lol
no_urges 12th-Apr-2013 12:13 am (UTC)
vampires searching for redemption in the french quarter? wow, so original....
sherrilina 12th-Apr-2013 12:32 am (UTC)
lmaoooo so true
geekchicrichie 12th-Apr-2013 12:15 am (UTC)
Why is this show even happening? There is no redemption for Klaus. He should have died in season 3. He killed Jenna. He killed Tyler's mom. This is bullshit.
amber_protocol 12th-Apr-2013 12:17 am (UTC)
Ugh, seriously. They had the best out written into the S3 finale (which is obviously where he was meant to be finished off) but then they pulled some bullshit and kept him on, only to shove him into plots in S4. But hey, whatever gets him off TVD is fine with me, I just wish it ended with Tyler killing him, but that would be too good to be true.
sherrilina 12th-Apr-2013 12:33 am (UTC)
IKR, if he had been done in season 3 it would have been so much better...I went from hating him to actually finding him interesting and now to hating him again...I would have rather stopped in the middle.
helyanwe89 12th-Apr-2013 02:53 am (UTC)
Damon killed a member of his own family (Zach), he killed Vicki for the hell of it, he treated Caroline horribly in Season 1, he killed Jeremy (he didn't know Jeremy had the Gilbert Ring), same with Alaric - Damon killed him and didn't know about the ring, he killed Mason Lockwood for not good reason, etc... but he's now a "good guy".

Klaus killed Jenna in revenge because Damon was trying to screw up him breaking the curse and he killed Carol in revenge as well because Tyler tried to have him buried in concrete.
