The Originals Spinoff - Danielle Rose Russell & Matt Davis to Star in Hope Centric Series in Development at The CW

Unlike The Originals, which started as a back-door pilot episode of The Vampire Diaries, I hear the proposed new spinoff will not film a planted or regular pilot. Word is that the new show — said to be revolving around the younger generation Originals — will have a short filmed presentation, largely compiled from scenes from the final 13-episode season, designed to lead to the potential offshoot. There also could be some limited new footage in the video, which, along with Plec’s pitch for the new series, will be in consideration in May for the CW’s 2018-19 schedule along with the network’s record 9 pilots. If the TVD/Originals spinoff is picked up, it will go straight-to-series. There are no set plans for other TVD/Originals actors to be on the new show but I hear the idea is for familiar characters to pop in occasionally.

Davis will anchor the new show, playing his TVD character Alaric Saltzman, which he also has reprised on The Originals. Hope was conceived during Season 4 in the episode “Bring It On,” and she’ll have a growth boost in Season 5. She was named Hope by her father, who took inspiration from his half-brother Elijah’s words about his newborn child being their family’s hope.

No details about the new characters are revealed but I hear Pouse will play M.G., a popular, kick-ass and brilliant nerd. Boyd is Christina, a bubbly and cheerful girl with a penchant for gossip and mischief. Bryant is Bethanne, who is quietly ambitious and highly intelligent.


A spinoff of “The Originals” is moving closer to reality.

Variety has learned that Matt Davis and Danielle Rose Russell, who play Alaric Saltzman and Hope Mikaelson respectively on “The Originals,” are attached to star in a potential spinoff at The CW along with Quincy Fouse, Jenny Boyd, Kaylee Bryant, and Aria Shahghasemi. The project has not yet been ordered to series at the network and remains in development. It is not known if all the new actors will appear on “The Originals,” but Shahghasemi has been cast in the show’s fifth season, per TVLine.
