WATCH: The Vampire Diaries Spinoff The Originals Promo Trailer


By Shari Weiss



The proposed “Vampire Diaries” spinoff, “The Originals,” will air next Thursday as a backdoor pilot, and Gossip Cop has your first look at the special episode.

The episode will tie into a regular episode of “The Vampire Diaries,” while showing the backstory for the potential new series, which the CW is considering airing this fall.

As Gossip Cop previously reported, The Originals” focuses on Klaus (Joseph Morgan), the “TVD” villain, and his family, who are considered the “original vampires.”

In the pseudo-pilot, Klaus returns to the French Quarter of New Orleans, a “supernatural melting pot” he helped build centuries ago, and is reunited with former protege Marcel.
