Davis will co-star opposite Joseph Morgan (as Original hybrid Klaus), Daniel Gillies (as Klaus’ vamp brother Elijah), Phoebe Tonkin (as werewolf Hayley) and Daniella Pineda (as witch Sophie) in Vampire Diaries‘ April 25 episode, which will serve as a planted pilot.

In the hour, penned by executive producer Julie Plec, Klaus returns to the French Quarter of New Orleans, a supernatural melting pot that he helped build centuries ago, and is reunited with the wild, wicked and bold Marcel, who now calls the shots in the area. Intent on helping his self-destructive brother find redemption, Elijah must side with Marcel’s enemies to keep Klaus in line.

    He’s very, very, very nice to look at. This project is looking up!

  2. Hathor says:

    He is freaking Gorgeous & he’ll be a Vampire, too!!!! Oh my gosh!!!! He’ll be the reason I watch the Originals Spinoff along with Elijah of course!

  3. Kerry says:

    This show is getting pretty interesting. But it absolutely needs Kol to be great.

  4. anil says:

    This series is the definition of UNINTERESTING. just get them and keep everybody on the vampire diaries. What is the point?

    • Unfortunately TVD is becoming more and more uninteresting with the back & forth of the Love Triangle. The spinoff is an Awesome idea. The Originals need their own show so they will not remain the focal point of the other characters on the show [Kill Klaus], which is what’s inteferring with their Lives.

    • Erin says:

      I agree. I’d be perfectly happy if they kept everyone on TVD and just stopped focusing on the love triangle.

  5. Elyse says:

    I can’t wait!!

  6. Jane says:

    Seriously a spin off of a crap ass teen soap..Kill the whole gang while the ship is still sailing…

  7. Jj says:

    Why is this happening? How can they not take Rebekkah? She needs to leave TVD now!!!

    • Jules says:

      Totally disagree. Rebekkah needs to stay on TVD and be with Stefan.

      • I agree. Keep Rebekah with Stefan. They’re cute together and whether or not people want to see it or not, Stefan actually like Rebekah, which is why he couldn’t dagger her. That would have been cruel and heartless on Stefan’s part.

  8. Naazneen says:

    Move Caroline and keep my dear Klaroline ship afloat!

  9. Leo says:

    Black people on this show are either witches or dead. So is it true he’s a vampire. Mind-blowing!

  10. scorpionglow says:

    Looking forward to the episode and the potential for this to be its own show.

  11. May says:

    .. What about Claire Holt. I am getting so nervous that she’s yet to be announced as a regular.

  12. Lily says:

    The spin off sound way cool, but does this mean they will take Klaus out of TVD to put him into The Original series??? If so that kinda sucks because I really wanted to see him and Caroline together! Or will they do it that he is still in TVD and the new series The Originals? And is the series The Orginals set in this time period or one from the past?
