Phoebe Tonkin & Joseph Morgan Tease 'The Originals' Time Jump at Comic-Con

Phoebe Tonkin, Joseph Morgan and Charles Michael Davis take a second out of signing autographs for fans for a pic during 2016 San Diego Comic Con on Saturday afternoon (July 23) in San Diego, Calif.

The three Originals stars joined Daniel Gillies, Yusuf Gatewood and Riley Voelkel, plus executive producers Julie Plec and Michael Narducci at the event just ahead of the panel.

The upcoming season will make a time jump, a short video confirmed at the panel (via TVLine) and shows Hayley caring for an older Hope.

“When we met Hayley, all she ever wanted was family,” Phoebe shared. “Through the events that happened, she created a family on her own with her daughter. I don’t think she feels alone — one, because she has five bodies in the back of her car — and because she has a purpose, a family-driven purpose.”

Julie added about losing Danielle Campbell and Leah Pipes, “It’s a hard thing to explain. You start to feel a redundancy of heroes. If you continue down a certain storyline, you’ll end up taking people in a direction that will isolate them. You get the urge to mix things up and to make things very tragic … so that you can always feel fresh, and you don’t have nine people telling the same story. … We needed to pull the family as tightly together as possible, and excise some of the characters who might conflict with [that plan].”
