The Originals is a spin-off from the Vampire Diaries. It focuses on the original vampire family who return to New Orleans to reclaim the city they helped build that is now under the control of a vampire named Marcel. Marcel also happens to be the "son" of Klaus Mickelson (an original).

When on Vampire Diaries, the Original family were the villains you came to love. This show is miles better than The Vampire Diaries in my opinion. So much so, that I stopped watching the Vampire Diaries ( have to go back and watch what I missed!) The show has a brilliant cast, characters, great story and good location. I like the way they have made this show darker and more "grown up· The crossovers that happen from time-to-face time with Mystic Falls and The Vampire Diaries cast is great.

There's really never a full moment in the show, and if there seems like it's starting to go slow....just wait out the 5- 10 min because that means something is about to happen!

I'm so sad the show is over, but excited to see the spin-off with Hope Mickelson. Can't wait!

I wanted to love this so much.  I loved the characters that came from TVD, but they were such a watered down version in TO.  Klaus had so much potential to be such a badass, and I was disappointed there wasn't more of that.

If you loved vampire diaries you will definitely love the originals. It’s soooo good. I’m sad that it’s about to end. Every season is better than the previous one. It’s a must watch.

The Originals is a Spin-Off from The Vampire Diaries, I fell in love with the original family on TVD and I followed them to their series, it's another of my favorite series, I love the supernatural. Why do we love bad boys so much? Klaus is bad but I love him, he is my favorite but the way he is with his daughter is beautiful.

I love the story and intricacies of the sibling relationships. Even though they have been alive for hundreds of years they still struggle with family.

Better then Vampire Diaries. Its not so "dry". We will see what will happen. And how much seasons they will have. I hope they dont make 20 seasons. Or this will be like with VD.

I watched it at the beginning. The first couple of seasons were pretty good and the actors were cute. But the later seasons started to get redundant and I just lost interest because pretty much you knew what was going to happen. It’s kind of like how the vampire diaries went the way of the dodo as well.

I started out as an avid  The Vampire Diaries fan, but my alliance has now shifted over to  The Originals !! I think this show is so much better. The drama, the story line, the plot twists... just keep it coming. This is definitely one of my guilty pleasures, and whenever it's on, it's one of the only shows I record and watch every week on my DVR box.

One of my favorite shows. Great for anyone who is a fan of the supernatural. It’s got warewolves, witches and vampires.
A spin off from The Vampire diaries, it’s a show that keeps you on your feet and isn’t afraid to take risks with its characters. Sad it’s coming to an end! Luckily you can watch it on Netflix!

Vampires, Werewolves, Witches they are all in this one series. The men of this show will captivate every woman watching and the woman on this show will bring men into their eyes. This show is similar to Vampire Diaries but with more adult situations. I would recommend this series to anyone who loves action supernatural shows.

When should I start watching this? I'm on season 3 of The Vampire Diaries on Netflix and I can't wait to watch The Originals but I don't want any spoilers, if there is any!
