On Saturday morning in the queue hall of the Javits Center, fans were treated to a supernaturally good time, when the stars and creators of Legacies – the new spinoff of The Vampire Diaries and The Originals – took the stage. Along with series creator Julie Plec and executive producer Brett Matthews, were Danielle Rose Russell, Matt Davis, Jenny Boyd, Kaylee Bryant, Quincy Fouse, Aria Shahghasemi and Peyton Alex Smith. But that’s not all, those in attendance were privy to a special viewing of the pilot episode. And let me tell you, it looks awesome!
Check out some of the highlights of the panel below.
October is right around the corner, and with it comes the busy, busy television season. For me, I end up married to my television in large part to the shows on The CW. Before we get there, let’s have a little fun with our favorite funny and oh-so-beautiful people. The CW has released photoshoot videos for Arrow, The Flash, The Vampire Diaries, iZombie, Supergirl, The 100, The Originals, and new shows Frequency and Riverdale.
The CW, home to most of my favorite shows, has announced that 11 of its current shows will be renewed for the 2016-2017 season. Some of these are proven fan favorites like The 100, The Vampire Diaries, The Originals, Arrow, and The Flash, completely covering the primetime slots for the entire week.
Check out the rest of the list and The CW’s tweet and press release below.
The Originals The Complete First Season Blu-ray | DVD | Instant
Created by Julie Plec
Starring Joseph Morgan, Daniel Gillies, Claire Holt, Phoebe Tonkin, Charles Michael Davis, Daniella Pineda, Leah Pipes, and Danielle Campbell The CW/ Warner Bros.
Release Date: September 2, 2014
The naughty, passionate, super fun, vicious, yet capable-of-great-love Mikaelsons, the “original” vampire clan, jumped into their own spin-off from The Vampire Diaries, with Klaus (Joseph Morgan) leading the charge. Licking his wounds after being rejected by Caroline (Candice Accola), Klaus returns to New Orleans, the city he and his siblings helped build, and reunites with his vampire “son” Marcel (Charles Michael Davis). Marcel is now king of New Orleans and Klaus wants it back. Klaus also has a new prince or princess on the way. His indiscretion with Hayley (Phoebe Tonkin) on TVD resulted in a little hybrid bump! Alliances between vampires, witches, wolves, and hybrids are formed, broken, and reformed, as the struggle for the city continues throughout the season.
The Originals is still finding its footing in its inaugural season, but it has enough rich backstory from The Vampire Diaries and the included featurettes, and enough charisma in Joseph Morgan’s pinky alone, to keep us interested. Apparently it kept the network interested too since it was renewed for a second season.
