For a while there we were thinking that The CW had staked all its vampire series with “The Vampire Diaries” over and “The Originals” ending this season, but good news came via Variety that the spin-off of “The Originals” is still alive.
According to the site, “The Vampire Diaries'” Matt Davis and “The Originals” actress Danielle Rose Russel have joined the show as Alaric Saltzman and Hope Michaelson. The two will star along with Quincy Fouse, Jenny Boyd, Kaylee Bryant, and Aria Shahghasemi.

The spin-off is still in development and has yet to be ordered to series by The CW, but we are keeping our fingers crossed.
The CW’s president, Mark Pedowitz, previously revealed during the 2017 Television Critics Association summer press tour that the network had discussed a Hope-centered spin-off with “The Originals” and “The Vampire Diaries” creator Julie Plec.

There’s been many conversations about the character Hope,” Pedowitz said. “Nothing has come out of it yet. Julie really wants to get the final season of ‘The Originals’ done.”

Plec serves as executive producer with Leslie Morgenstein. “The Originals”, which itself is a spin-off of “The Vampire Diaries,” is set to premiere on April 20, 2018.
