Welcome back to the world of The Originals. The CW’s new supernatural drama has so far been filled with action, quick-witted dialogue and colorful characters, and during its midseason return, The Originals was bolder than ever, introducing us to numerous betrayals and ending with a surprise death.
When it comes to new dramas, the CW held a couple back at the start of the 2013-2014 season. Sci-fi dramas The 100 and Star-Crossed were both reserved for midseason, and you’ll see them among the shows scheduled to air this winter. While alien-Romeo & Juliet drama Star-Crossed will arrive in February, The 100-
According to the latest preview for Episode 10, otherwise known as “The Casket Girls,” The Originals won’t pop back onto the schedule until mid-January. That’s some bad news for fans, but on the bright side, this past episode was fairly explosive, leaving us with plenty to think about.
While I thought the war in The Originals would likely take us through Season 1, the writers seem to have other ideas in the works. At least, that’s how it looks in the preview for next week’s episode 9, “Reigning Pain in New Orleans.”
It’s been over two weeks since we caught a new episode of TV’s best new spinoff series. Thus far, The Originals has offered fans an entertaining drama about life in New Orleans, amping up the plot with a coven of witches, a werewolf-vampire hybrid baby, and a set of Original vampires.
It looks like CW’s aiming to stay the course with their new dramas. The network announced today that they’ve given full season orders for all three freshmen drama series The Originals, The Tomorrow People and Reign. These are three of five new series CW is introducing this season, with two more lined up to join the network during Midseason.
If I’ve had a complaint about the CW’s The Originals, it’s that mom-to-be Hayley has been kept in the background for most of the first six episodes of the drama. Sure, she’s been given her own plotlines, but they’ve been the b-plotlines. Hayley was finally put in the spotlight this week, and if the preview for next week’s “Bloodletting” is any indication, she’ll have an even larger role moving forward.
Over the past few episodes, Klaus’ plan to re-take over New Orleans seemed to be chugging along. Then Davina stepped in, however, and Elijah was forced to remain inside his coffin. This week, things seemed to be looking up as Davina woke Elijah and toyed with him, while Klaus worked some tricks to get the little witchy woman on his side. The intrigue definitely isn’t over yet, though
The fourth episode of The Originals is set to hit the CW next week, and it seems that Klaus is finally ready to exact his revenge on former prodigy Marcel in an attempt to take back New Orleans. When we last left off, the feisty Davina still had her talons around Elijah, who is still stuck in a box. Klaus is ready to exact his revenge and maybe save his brother in the process, but as he notes in the new preview for next week’s episode, “Sadly, I’ve run out of time to play nice.”
The Originals premiered last week to alright ratings, but it seems people may have caught up by watching the series premiere via other platforms later in the week. Only time will tell if The Originals will manage to crush in the ratings over the long haul, but in the meantime, the CW has put together a pretty compelling advertisement for this week’s episode, “House of the Rising Son.”
Can I watch The Originals if I don't watch The Vampire Diaries? This is the question I asked myself as I sat down to watch the pilot episode of The Originals. So if you're looking for a review of the vampire spinoff series from a die-hard TVD fan, I apologize but you'll have to search elsewhere. My knowledge of The Vampire Diaries is limited to vague memories of the first few episodes of the series.
With so many new series about to be unloaded on us as the fall season looms ever closer, trying to figure out which ones we're most excited about was no easy task. But there are some comedies and dramas that really are brimming with potential this fall, thanks to great premises and in some cases, some really excellent talent involved. Whether or not these shows actually live up to that potential remains to be seen, and we'll find out in a matter of weeks. In the meantime, here's our list of shows we're especially excited about, listed in no particular order.
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!
The CW's getting a bit more super next season with the arrival of The Tomorrow People, one of the new shows set to debut this fall. The new poster puts series star Robbie Amell front and center, with co-stars Peyton List over on the left and Luke Mitchell on the right. If "Different is Dangerous" as the tagline says, we may want to watch out for that trio, as they're about as different as it comes.
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.
