The Originals: Plot
A family of power-hungry thousand-year-old vampires seeks to reclaim the city they built and rule over everyone who has wronged them.
The Originals is a spin-off of The Vampire Diaries that is set in New Orleans and follows the Mikaelson siblings, also known as the world’s original vampires Klaus, Elijah, and Rebekah. Klaus must now assassinate his protégé, Marcel, who is now in charge of New Orleans, in order to reclaim his city as he intended. After being pursued by his father Mikael, Klaus fled the city while it was being built, and Marcel assumed command.
The Originals Season 6: Reason Behind the Cancellation
After the fourth season, the show’s ratings began to decline, and viewers criticized the storyline for being too predictable.
On July 20, 2017, it was confirmed that the program would not be renewed after season 5. Julie Plec, the show’s creator, made the revelation on Twitter shortly before heading to Comic-Con that year.
“Having power over a series’ ending is both a blessing and a curse. Many shows aren’t fortunate enough to have a say in when the show ends… “It’s always bittersweet to end a show, but it’s a great blessing to be a part of that decision,” Julie Plec adds.
The Originals: Show’s Conclusion
“When The Saints Come Marching In,” the final episode of The Originals, opened off where the previous episode left off, with Klaus on the verge of killing himself in order to completely destroy the Hollow and save Hope. Hope knocks him out just as he’s ready to do so, and she takes Klaus back to New Orleans with her Uncle Elijah so he may say his goodbyes properly. Caroline, Klaus’ old flame, visits New Orleans for a final farewell and advises him on how to say goodbye to his daughter. Klaus says his farewell and has an emotional heart-to-heart with Hope during the Mikaleson clan’s final meal before heading off with Rebekah and Elijah to stake his claim. Klaus tells Rebekah that Caroline has the solution for her curse waiting in Mystic Falls before committing vampire suicide. Meanwhile, Freya has persuaded Vincent to be the father of her and Keelin’s kid. The season 5 finale of The Originals ended with an emotional surprise, with Elijah informing Klaus that he intends to die alongside his brother before they stake each other, putting an end to the Hollow’s terrible power for good and assuring Hope’s safety.
Even though the show ended with the season 5 finale, the shared Vampire Diaries and Originals universe continued. Legacies, a new spinoff series centering on Hope Mikaelson (Danielle Rose Russell) from The Originals, launched in 2018 and will return in October 2019.
