Vampire Diaries season 4 dished new ‘Originals’ spin off show major spoilers & more. Recently Entertainment Weekly got to chat it up with Vampire Diaries executive producer ,Julie Plec,again, and she dished out major new spoilers for their new spin off show “Originals” as one of the Vampire Diaries season 4 episodes will act as a potential pilot episode for the new show. It’s going to star Klaus and Hayley,along with whoever else they can get.

To kick things off,Julie revealed that they’ve actually been working on this new show for about two years now,stating, “It’s actually something that we’ve been talking about for two years, that we contemplated trying to get off its feet last year, but there was just too much work to do in too little time.

So, that gave us an opportunity this year to spend a lot more time putting it together. Seeing if, obviously, our actors had any interest whatsoever continuing the life of these characters, and if there was a story to tell. It all came together in a way that we finally felt would not detract from our most important baby right now, The Vampire Diaries, and would give us a chance to expand the universe with characters that we’ve had another year to get to know.”

From there, Julie revealed some new spoiler teasers for the April 25th, Vampire Diaries season 4 episode as it will act as a pilot for the “Originals.” She explained, “The idea is that a turn of events in Mystic Falls sends Klaus to New Orleans to solve a mystery. He gets word that some people are making a move against him that might concern him. So he heads to New Orleans to try to figure who’s plotting against him and what they’re up to.

And in unfolding that mystery, it takes him back to a town that several hundred years ago, he was actually one of the original settlers of and helped build. He reacquaints himself with a vampire that he actually turned back in the day, Marcel, who has created a whole set of rules and a whole society for the supernatural community that he’s in charge of sort of tipping his hat to Klaus and saying, “You taught me everything I know.” So Klaus’ protegé is now the big king of the supernatural community in New Orleans and Klaus is stepping back into that.”

They will also start casting Marcel’s character in the next couple of weeks. Julie also told them more about Marcel,stating,”he’s “the life of the party. He is diabolical, and dangerous, and he is a rock star. If anything, he’s that kind of hard-partying, hard-living vampire who knows how to enjoy the most out of life in the French Quarter.”

Julie also wants to bring on Daniel Gilles aka Elijah to join the Originals mix,along with Claire Holt aka Rebekah. It will just depend on their desire to want to do the show,and other crazy variables. Julie wouldn’t describe what Phoebe Tonkin aka Hayley’s role will be in the new show,but she will definitely be in it.

To cap things off, Julie revealed that she’ll be splitting up the workload between the two shows with Caroline Dries and Mike Narducci. Stay tuned. Follow us on Facebook by Clicking Here. Follow us on Twitter by Clicking Here.
