josephmorgan-tvdpilot-011213We are obsessed with “The Vampire Diaries” and it looks like we aren’t the only ones!

The CW has announced they are developing a spinoff of the hit series which will be based on our favorite baddie.

EW broke the news this week that the CW has decided to launch a backdoor pilot for a spinoff within the show’s current fourth season.

So what will this new show be about? “The Originals” of course! The story will center around the original family of vampires and stars Joseph Morgan (Klaus). Also set to star is Phoebe Tonkin, who made her debut this year as Tyler’s werewolf pal Hayley.

In the episode airing April 25, Klaus “returns to the supernatural melting pot that is the French Quarter of New Orleans — a town he helped build centuries ago — and is reunited with his diabolical former protégé Marcel.

How amazing does that sound? We know that we will be tuning in. Fingers crossed the show gets picked up!

    Normally I don’t like the idea of spinoff shows. The Originals, however, sounds like it would keep me interested. Most of my friends that work with me at DISH watch The Vampire Diaries, so that much more from the franchise would keep us all busy during our gossip sessions at lunch. Thursday nights are extremely busy for my family’s TV lineups, so I’m happy we have a DISH Hopper that allows us to watch up to 4 programs at once. We’re all happy when no one has to compromise a beloved TV series.
