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].”

There’s another Vampire Diaries & Originals crossover on the way!
Elijah (Daniel Gillies) and Finn (Caspar Zafer) will head to Mystic Falls and run into a familiar face in the April 8 episode of The Originals, titled “Behind the Black Horizon.”
“[I] know the fans — they love the shared universe and they love to see that these characters still interact in the same big wide world and if Matt (Zach Roerig) is interacting with Elijah — that’s a reminder that these characters still function in the same place,” executive producer Michael Narducci told Access Hollywood. “For me, as a creator, what’s really exciting is that Matt was the one who killed Finn in Season 3 with a white oak stake and so now it’s Finn, who has recently been brought back through magic to rejoin his family, [who] is coming face-to-face with the guy who killed him. And I think that that’s interesting and it’s also interesting as a reminder that even though he’s just a human being, Matt Donovan’s a tough guy who, when push comes to shove, given the right weapons, can even take down an Original, so I thought that was pretty cool.”
WHAT DO YOU THINK of Matt Donovan showing up on The Originals?
