The Originals to air on GO

Go will screen The Vampire Diaries spin off The Originals next week.

Following new journeys by familiar and favourite characters from The Vampire Diaries, the series features two of Australia’s rising acting talents;Phoebe Tonkin and Clare Holt.

Klaus (Joseph Morgan), a dangerous vampire/werewolf hybrid, returns to the magical melting pot that is the French Quarter of New Orleans, a town he helped to build centuries ago.

Acting on a mysterious tip that a plot is brewing against him, Klaus’s questions lead him to a reunion with his diabolical former protégé Marcel (Charles Michael Davis), a charismatic vampire who has total control over the human and paranormal inhabitants of the Crescent City.

Determined to help his brother Klaus find redemption, Elijah (Daniel Gillies) follows the hybrid and soon learns that Hayley (Tonkin) has also come to the French Quarter searching for clues to her family history … and has fallen into the hands of the powerful witch Sophie (Daniella Pineda).

Meanwhile, Klaus and Elijah’s sister, Rebekah (Holt), must decide if she will leave Mystic Falls to join her brothers in New Orleans and help them to reclaim their storied hometown and all its extraordinary offerings.
