By Daniel Gates


“The Originals,” a potential spinoff series from “The Vampire Diaries,” will be introduced via an upcoming episode of the hugely popular drama.

The “backdoor pilot” for the possible new show is scheduled to air on April 25.

“Vampire Diaries” cast member Joseph Morgan (who plays Klaus) stars in the story about the original family of vampires, as does Phoebe Tonkin, who portrays werewolf Hayley.

In the episode, 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.

If it gets picked up as a series, “Vampire Diaries” executive producer Julie Plec would run “The Originals.”
