Just when you thought this day could not get any better — what, with new interviews of The Originals stars to sink our teeth into as well as sneak peek images from the second episode “Always and Forever” — the CW decided to surprise us with more supernatural treats! This time around, they unveiled mesmerizing new photos of the cast members of The Vampire Diaries spinoff show.
The highly anticipated series, which premieres on Thursday, Oct. 3 at 9 p.m. ET before moving to its permanent time slot on Tuesday, Oct. 8 at 8 p.m. ET, stars Joseph Morgan as Klaus, Claire Holt as Rebekah, Charles Michael Davis as Marcel, Daniel Gillies as Elijah, Leah Pipes as Cami, Danielle Campbell as Sophie Deveraux and Phoebe Tonkin as Hayley, Danielle Campbell as Davina.
According to executive producer Julie Plec, the first episode will be told from Elijah’s perspective and Rebekah will be joining her brothers down south in the second episode. (Her entrance is so jaw-dropping that Julie has affectionately dubbed it “Hurricane Rebekah.”) Surprisingly, while Klaus remains perturbed by news of Hayley’s surprise pregnancy with their love child, Elijah and Rebekah will revel in the chance to extend their family tree and will become protective of the mother-to-be (especially since the witches in the area have found a way to close the loophole that permits Klaus to breed)! Moreover, as expected with the Mikaelson clan, we can expect a lot of tension between them and the local witches, werewolves, and vampires of New Orleans, powerful flashback scenes, and plenty of sibling drama!
