Summer Fontana Will Be A 'Major Stars', 'The Originals' Showrunner Says

Throughout the entire season four of The Originals, there was one character we couldn’t take our eyes off of — Hope.

And for good reason, too — because Summer Fontana is amazing, and we’re not the only ones who think so.

“With all my heart I believe that Summer Fontana is going to be a big, major star,” former showrunner Michael Narducci shared with THR.

He added, knowing she’s headed for big things ahead: “She was phenomenal. Everything that we gave her to do she was incredible. She exceeded all of our expectations.”

We can’t wait to see what Summer is working on next!

'The Originals' Will Have New Time Jump With A Much Older Hope

Big things are ahead of Summer Fontana…and her character, Hope, on The Originals.

According to TVLine, Hope may be the center of a brand new spinoff show soon.

But not only that, but the show will have another “significant time jump, setting the stage for a much older Hope — think late teens — to be introduced in Season 5.”

Casting for an older Hope is happening right now, it seems.

“I think there are future shows down the line that can be spawned out of this world and could tell good stories,” showrunner Julie Plec revealed earlier in the year. “It’s a hope for the future if nothing else.”

Hmmm, we wonder if a whole new show just about Hope is coming…maybe at a magical school?

Summer Fontana is going to be a major, major part of The Originals new season.

The young actress stars as the older Hope, who’s been on the run with her mom Hayley (Phoebe Tonkin) for the past five years.

“Hope does play a major part in the season and there is something out there that is coming that is very dangerous and very deadly,” executive producer Michael Narducci told EW about her story.

He adds, “We wanted this season to feel, more so than seasons in the past, like a proper New Orleans ghost story, and that is a big part of it.”

So, what will Hope and dad Klaus’s (Joseph Morgan) first meet actually be like?

“She’s a person who can ask questions and have a perspective. She barely remembers him and, over the course of the five years they’ve been apart, he’s almost become this mythical figure in her mind, so what does a 7-year-old kid think of Klaus Mikaelson, who we in the writers’ room refer to as the Genghis Khan of vampires?”

He questions, “Is she afraid of him? Is she amused by him? Does she know that he will always protect her? That is going to be a big part of Klaus’ headspace — coming to terms with this new person in his life. We know family is more important than anything for him, and now he’s got a new family member who he’s interacting with this season and that’s a great joy to see.”

The Originals premieres TONIGHT @ 8PM ET/PT on The CW.
