Are you hoping to see more of your favorite French Quarter residents?
While The Originals has yet to premiere its fourth season, fans are already wondering about more episodes given that it was left off the list of newly-renewed CW shows.
“Julie [Plec] and I spoke ahead of time about this,” the network’s president Mark Pedowitz said during 2017 TCA (via EW) “The Originals has not yet premiered for the season. It’ll probably be a discussion in May. I’m a big Julie Plec fan. I’m hoping The Originals will continue. A lot of it will depend on performance.”
Mark your calendars – The Originals returns on Friday, March 17 @ 8PM on The CW.
March 17th seems so far away and it kind of is, so we’re actually happy to get any kind of news about The Originals that we can!
However, this news may bum people out.
“They have one of the most dynamic journeys that we’re going to have dramatized this season,” executive producer Michael Narducci dished about the romance that lies ahead for Elijah (Daniel Gillies) and Hayley (Phoebe Tonkin).
He adds, “Right away, you’re going to see what Hayley is willing to do to get the final pieces of the puzzle to get Elijah and his siblings back.”
“These are two people who clearly love each other, even though they have a very complicated situation. Elijah is a thousand-year-old vampire with a sense of honor and dignity, yet he’s capable of doing unspeakable things. Hayley, despite being a hybrid, has only lived a mortal lifetime, and she has values and ethics that approximate those of a human being,” he explained about why their relationship is such a star-crossed one.
Either way, we’re ready to see Hayley and Elijah’s romance finally play out on screen.
Looks like The Originals cast is also wrapping up production on their show too.
Star Phoebe Tonkin shared some sweet messages over Twitter as the cast and crew wrapped up production on Season 4, just ahead of the holidays.
“And thats A Season 4 Wrap!” she started. “To the Crew and Cast of the Originals. Thank you. You work so incredibly hard, and you devote so much time and energy into this show.”
Phoebe adds, “We are all so grateful for your dedication, your patience and your kindness. I miss you all already.”
And that’s not all! Joseph Morgan and Summer Fontana, who plays Hope, recorded a super cute holiday message. Check it out below!

Our hearts go out to the cast and crew of The Originals, who are mourning the loss of one of their own.
Sadly, actor Owiso Odera, who played Papa Tunde in three episodes during season one, suddenly died over the weekend.
Cast and crew members took to social media to pay their respects.
“The death of #OwisoOdera is a tragedy. I only spent one short ep with him but we in the OGs family have talked about Papa Tunde ever since,” star Joseph Morgan tweeted.
Daniel Gillies wrote on Twitter, “goodbye owiso. glorious, sweet and criminally elegant. so grateful to have shared even a second near that sacred & indelible talent.”

Are you also still holding out hope for another crossover between The Vampire Diaries and The Originals? We may be in luck!
While a full episode may not happen before the former show comes to an end, Executive Producer Julie Plec has hope that we will see some crossover, even given the current timeline differences.
“[The timeline shifts] actually made it extremely easy, much to the chagrin of the people I’m sure would have loved multiple crossovers before the series comes to a close,” Julie told ET. “But I do think the final episode will have some time-shifting, so I’m not worried about being inhibited from seeing The Originals again in The Vampire Diaries universe. I don’t know how or who, but I certainly think we can make it work on some level.”
What about Vampire Diaries characters showing up in the French Quarter after the show ends?
“A thousand percent,” Julie said. “One of my goals is to find really exciting and organic ways to combine the universe just a little bit, whether it’s a flavor or something more aggressive. There are a lot of really wonderful people that I work with that I’d like to continue working with, so it’s certainly not out of the question that we could find ways to integrate them into The Originals.”
DO YOU WANT to see another TVD / Originals crossover?
It looks like the Klaus (Joseph Morgan) and Marcel (Charles Michael Davis) drama is far from over on The Originals.
“The indignity of Klaus Mikaelson’s situation the last five years [is being] held captive by his surrogate son and forced to be an advisor to a king that he does not recognize,” executive producer Julie Plec told EW.
She added, “Also, [he knows] Marcel is actually singularly responsible for the fact he’s alive, because so many people have come to town in the last five years desperate to see him reduced to ash.”
The Originals will return midseason on The CW.
Phoebe Tonkin is all smiles with Summer Fontana in this cute new Instagram.
The 27-year-old actress, who plays Hayley on The Originals, showed off her TV daughter to her fans on the social network.
“If you’re on a CW show long enough, eventually you end up being a mother to a 7 year old,” Phoebe wrote. “Meet my gorgeous and unfairly talented tv daughter Summer.”
If you missed it, you can see Phoebe and Summer together in the new trailer for the upcoming season of The Originals on JJJ!
