September is upon us, and with it comes the return of our favorite TV shows, as well as the premieres of many of the new series on deck to debut on network and cable TV. From the early starters, including Boardwalk Empire, Sons of Anarchy and The Legend of Korra, to the October arrivals, including Grimm, American Horror Story: Coven and The Walking Dead and everything in between, we have plenty to look forward to this fall!
A lot happened during the Season 4 finale of The Vampire Diaries. The whole thing should be leading up to a pretty explosive introductory episode in Season 5, and the CW has finally put together a promo hinting at some new plotlines.
The CW has made a few shifts in its Fall 2013 premiere schedule, one of which affects The Vampire Diaries spinoff The Originals. It looks like the network has opted to shift the spinoff's premiere date to temporarily pair it with The Vampire Diaries, which will likely give The Originals the benefit of a TVD lead-in and some added support before it moves over to Tuesday nights for its regularly scheduled night.
Capes are back! Or they will be at Comic-Con this year. Someone tell Edna ("No capes!"). Warner Bros. unveiled the official 2013 Comic-Con bags and they come with detachable capes. That, added to the announcement that the bags are fashioned like a backpack this year causes me some mild concern that many of us may feel compelled to run while wearing it, as such a compulsion can arise when wearing a cape.
The CW has announced their fall premiere schedule, and - as we've seen in the past - they're starting their fall season in October, a couple of weeks after the bulk of the other network television series return and debut. Among the new series to get started at the CW are The Tomorrow People, Reign and Vampire Diaries spin-off The Originals.
Among the more anticipated series headed to TV in the upcoming season is likely The Originals, the Vampire Diaries spinoff, which focuses on the Original Vampire family, including Klaus Mikaelson, the original vampire-werewolf hybrid. The trailer teases the struggle for power, loyalty and family among the supernatural underground in the city of New Orleans.
Last among the major networks to unveil their 2013-2014 schedule is The CW. The network has moved a few things around in the new season, in an effort to make room for new series, which include The Vampire Diaries spinoff The Originals, action-adventure drama The Tomorrow People and the new historical drama about Mary, Queen of Scots, Reign.
Well, that didn't take long! A day after The CW aired the back-door pilot for the Vampire Diaries potential spinoff series The Originals comes the official word from the network that they've ordered the pilot to series, which means more vampire drama on the CW, as the network had previously renewed the original series for fifth season.
You can take the vampire out of the Quarter, but you can’t take the Quarter out of the vampire. At least, that’s what this week’s The Vampire Diaries episode, which doubled as the backdoor pilot for a spinoff, The Originals, seems to want to prove. Klaus hasn’t really spent time in the French Quarter of New Orleans for 100 years, but it’s a city he built, and as soon as he steps foot in the city again, he gets embroiled in the city’s charm, as well as its drama.
Tonight, the CW is premiering the backdoor pilot for The Originals, a potential drama spinoff following the original family of vampires living in The Vampire Diaries’ universe. TVD is known for its quick, dramatic dialogue, and from the extended trailer above, The Originals will offer plenty of new dealings with the undead, and will feature some familiar faces, as well as plenty of new ones.
Just when fans might think The Vampire Diaries spin-off The Originals could not possibly find any room for another central cast member, the backdoor pilot has defied odds. Like The Vampire Diaries, The Originals will be a supernatural pilot with a large ensemble cast, and apparently, the spinoff wants to follow the format of The Vampire Diaries fairly closely and has hired an actress to play a mortal on the show.
If you're a fan of Arrow, The Vampire Diaries and/or Supernatural, there's good news. The CW has spared you the anxiety of waiting for word on whether or not these series will return with new seasons after the current ones wrap up. The network has given early pickups for all three shows, which are confirmed to have a place on the Fall 2013 line-up.
To determine whether a show falls in to the former or latter camp, TV Blend writer Jessica Rawden has vowed to watch episodes of shows she’s never seen before and analyze those show in different areas to let you, the reader, know how quickly you could become a fan. This week Jessica is tackling The Vampire Diaries’’s Season 4 Episode 11 drama “Catch Me if You Can.”
The Vampire Diaries, with its supernatural bent, has become one of the CW’s most popular series. Realizing this, it should really be no surprise that the network would want to pursue a spin-off series, featuring some of the show’s cast members and an “original” vampire clan.
Between returning shows like The Vampire Diaries, Supernatural and Arrow, added to new series The Carrie Diaries and Cult, The CW viewers have plenty to look forward to. But before the network moves forward, it's taking one last look back at the highlights of 2012 with a promotional video. Check it out ahead!
