Vampires, Robots And S.H.I.E.L.D Oh My: 10 New TV Shows We Can't Wait To Watch
Premieres: Thursday, October 3 at 9:00 p.m. on The CW
Created by: Julie Plec
Starring: Joseph Morgan, Daniel Gillies, Claire Holt, Phoebe Tonkin, Daniella Pineda
The CW has already found success with The Vampire Diaries and the network is looking for another hit with the show’s spinoff The Originals. I’d argue that it might be difficult to cultivate two vampire-oriented dramas on the same channel, but with many of the most interesting characters from the series headed to The Originals, I’d say TVD might actually have the bigger problem. Fans of the series have already been privy to a backdoor pilot that introduced us to a thriving New Orleans and an intriguing cast of characters, pulling many of our favorites from The Vampire Diaries into this NOLA universe.
Klaus has always been a fan favorite on TVD and in The Originals backdoor pilot, we see a passion and a desire in him to return to his glory days and the town he formerly ran. We also get to meet Klaus’ progeny Marcel (Charles Michael Davis), a complicated vampire who instills fear on a whim and who now runs the great southern city. The show is shaping up for a standoff between the two vampires, and thanks to its flavor, style, and characters, it’s certainly the most anticipated new program headed to the CW this year.
