"Vampire Diaries" Spinoff Pilot On The CW

Great news for the "Vampire Diaries" fans!

The CW is officially developing a spinoff for the "Vampire Diaries" and fans will get the chance to watch the pilot.

After years of rumors circulating about extending the supernatural hit, The CW has finally made the decision to launch a backdoor pilot for a spinoff within the show's current fourth season. 

The story focuses on the original family of vampires and stars Joseph Morgan (Klaus). In the episode, Klaus returns to the supernatural melting pot which is the French Quarter of New Orleans, a town he helped build centuries ago, and is reunited with his diabolical former protégé Marcel. Phoebe Tonkin, who portrays sexy werewolf Hayley on TVD, is also set to star. The episode airs on April 25. The working title of the spinoff is "The Originals".

It has to be noted that "Vampire Diaries" executive producer Julie Plec will write the episode and serve as showrunner on the new project if it earns a series order. Other executive producers will be Leslie Morgenstein and Gina Girolamo. "Vampire Diaries" showrunner Kevin Williamson, who also has his upcoming Fox show "The Following", is not involved with the spinoff. The show is produced by Alloy Entertainment in association with Warner Bros. Television and CBS Television Studios.
