‘The Originals’ Season 4 Premiere Promo: “Gather Up The Killers”


Wipe your tears, The Vampire Diaries fans! We still get our Mystic Falls-fix (kinda) with the successful TVD spinoff The Originals premiering March 17, at 8pmEST on The CW. A promo featuring the showrunner Michael Narducci walks us through where we’ll pick up in the season 4 premiere.

Where we’ll pick up in the season 4 premiere:

  • The biggest, baddest vampire ever, Klaus, is still locked up in a dungeon.
  • Vincent leads the witches, and Marcel leads the vampires. They’ve been living in a peaceful New Orleans since the Mikaelsons have been “locked away.”
  • Unsired vampires from around the globe are getting antsy to see Klaus and know he’s truly suffering and kept under wraps.
  • There’s a fiver-year time-jump, which means that Hope is now seven-years old (and played by the adorable Summer Fontana), and is probably smart enough to know what’s going on around her. Who’s excited to see what her powers will be?!
  • Most importantly, Haley’s hair looks amazing. Her highlights are straight-up magical. #Werq

Fan Theories (Including a  possible spinoff!)

In addition to the well-known theory about Caroline hopping over to The Originals, there has been additional theorizing from fans. With the series finale of The Vampire Diaries, there have been some crazy fan-theories circling. One theory is that Hope will be unable to control her powers, being that she’s the only person in the world to be created from a werewolf/hybrid/Original vampire, and she gets sent to The Salvatore Boarding school to be taught by Caroline and Ric.


I know, right? If anything, we’d love to see this played out in at least a crossover, as there’s been no confirmation about another spinoff focusing on The Salvatore School for the Gifted. #XMenReference
