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

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' Season Five: Here's What's Ahead For The Show

The Originals doesn’t have a premiere date for the upcoming season just yet, but we already know what to look forward to.

While the Mikaelson family was split up in the season finale, Hayley was seen dropping Hope off at a school — Salvatore Boarding School for the Young & Gifted.

In season 5, the focus will be on a teenage Hope at the school in Mystic Falls, who may or may not get a love interest.

The Originals isn’t leaving New Orleans totally behind though — something will likely lure the Mikaelsons back to the city that keeps calling their name.

Family reunion, maybe?

'The Originals' Season Four Finale: Elijah Makes The Ultimate Sacrifice for Family

'The Originals' Season Four Finale: Elijah Makes The Ultimate Sacrifice for Family

SPOILERS AHEAD! DO NOT READ IF YOU DON’T WANT TO KNOW!

Last night’s episode of The Originals split the entire family up!

Vincent’s plan on how to defeat The Hollow came at a steep price — by splitting everyone up to save Hope.

Vincent had to put The Hollow into all four siblings, which resulted in a choice where they’d never see one another again, and they did it. But, Elijah took is just one step further.

Elijah forced himself to forget the “always and forever” vow, which meant he’d forget his siblings.

In the final moments, we see that Rebekah and Marcel (who are now a couple) are in New York, Kol was ordering an engagement ring for Davina in San Francisco, and Elijah found a new home in France, where Klaus paid him a quick visit, and no, though Elijah didn’t recognize him.

“I think Elijah commits a form of suicide in the finale of season 4,” former EP Michael Narducci shared with EW. “He amputates the most important thing in his life, the thing that had given him at least a modicum of solace — his commitment to these brothers and sisters.”

Will that be a good or bad thing for him? We’ll have to see when season five comes around.

'The Originals' Finale: Vincent Tries to Save Hope in This Clip - Watch Now! (Exclusive)

Vincent (Yusuf Gatewood) attempts to appeal to the Mikaelson family with an elaborate plan to save Hope (Summer Fontana) in this exclusive clip from this week’s finale of The Originals.

In “The Feast of All Sinners,” the family find themselves out of options as they face the all-powerful and un-killable entity known as The Hollow.

Vincent’s desperate plan will force Klaus (Joseph Morgan), Elijah (Daniel Gillies), Hayley (Phoebe Tonkin), Rebekah (Claire Holt) and Freya (Riley Voelkel) to make the greatest sacrifice their family has ever endured.

“You said there was a way to save her,” Klaus says in the clip, which you can watch below.

Vincent responds, “There is, but I’m going to tell you right now – you are not going to like my plan.”

The Originals season four finale airs Friday, June 23 at 8 p.m. on The CW.

'The Originals' Are Casting For Hope's Love Interest For Season 5

'The Originals' Are Casting For Hope's Love Interest For Season 5

We’ve all heard about the plans for The Originals season five that involve an older Hope.

We know that there will be another time jump, and that Summer Fontana (who plays Hope right now) might not be in the next season.

Now, we also know there are plans for another new vampire character — a love interest for Hope.

EW reports that the show is currently casting for a “devilishly charming, recently-turned vampire named Roman.”

The new character will find himself having a common bond with the daughter of Klaus and Hayley, over their dysfunctional families.

This sounds interesting…what do you think about this news?

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

'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?

An 'Originals' Romance Was Killed Because Of Who Won The Presidency

An 'Originals' Romance Was Killed Because Of Who Won The Presidency

Well, this is sad.

A key romance on The Originals won’t be happening at all because of which candidate won the Presidency last year.

Showrunner Julie Plec explained during the ATX Festival this weekend that one writer turned in a script that featured a female character getting beat up by a man.

It was a flashback to centuries earlier, but nonetheless, it was scraped, and so was their romance.

“But he beat her up,” Julie shared. “We realized at that moment they can’t be together anymore. And we killed a love story on that day. One that people who watch the show are probably rooting for.”

She adds, “Narratively we were going down this path, but my conscience can’t advocate that kind of violence.”

While Julie never shares just which romance the presidency killed, it’s safe to assume that it was Elijah and Hayley.

The “villain” spoken about is one who is always “battling the fight between trying to be the most moral upstanding creature and yet has a very deep, dark place borne out of being a creature of the night for thousands of years, and has worked so hard to overcome it.”

TELL JJJ: What do you think about this? Are you still rooting for Hayley and Elijah regardless?

Did Kol & Davina Get Their Happy Ending on 'The Originals' Last Night?

Did Kol & Davina Get Their Happy Ending on 'The Originals' Last Night?

If you missed The Originals last night, you missed out some really good Kol and Davina goodness!

In the ep, Kol did just about everything to save her from The Hollow — and that includes betraying his entire family — and even though he’s probably done with them for eternity, he did save Davina from The Hollow.

That’s a kismet type of love!

Nathaniel Buzolic spoke with Collider ahead of the episode airing, saying that this episode asks “When you love someone, what are you willing to do to make sure that person is around and you can protect them? How far will you go?”

He adds, “Davina brought back Kol, and she did that when everything else was going wrong in her world, so I feel like he has an obligation to do the exact same thing.”

“That’s what’s interesting, when love becomes stronger than family, in these circumstances.”

Nate also shared that Kol and Davina deserve their happy ending.

“They always get so close to having this happily ever after, and then it never quite works out. It’s very sad,” he said. “A lot of the fans were so upset when Kol killed Davina…Hopefully, for the fans, there’s a little bit of a better ending than what’s been playing out.”
