Joseph Morgan Promises TVD Crossovers, Teases "Rich" World of The Originals

by at . Comments

Daniel Gillies in on board. So is Phoebe Tonkin and Claire Holt and, of course, Joseph Morgan.

But might we see some of our favorite Mystic Falls residents make their way to New Orleans on The Originals?

Speaking on The Vampire Diaries spinoff to E! News, Morgan confirmed that a few TVD favorites will be crossing over now and then to the upcoming series, assuming it is picked up by The CW of course.

"There are going to be characters that cross over between the two worlds," Morgan said, adding that "the whole world is going to be richer" on the new series and saying of Caroline in particular:

"It would imagine all the fans that have been so generous to me are going to want to see what happens with Caroline... I feel like I owe it to the fans for there to be some resolve and for her to possibly turn up in New Orleans at some point. I know there's already talks about different characters that can come over to New Orleans and then go back."

What do you think of this possibility, TVD Fanatics? Will it take away from the original series? Make it too confusing to follow? Is it unfair to ask fans to now tune in for two shows in order to follow various storylines?

Or is it simply an awesome idea?

Klaus's love interest [possibly Elijah's too] on The Originals is rumored to be University student/Bartender Cami played by Leah Pipes.


i think its awesome


I think it would be okay sometimes. But the show is called the originals.


leave hayley out as lead actress and put in caroline. klaus/elijah/caroline


I hope the TVD spinoff is picked up by CW, I love the Originals characters, I would hate for them to just disappear. Having Klaus is like having a second Damon, deliciously evil. Look forward to seeing Elijah, loved his character. I'm definitely up to two doses of Vampires!


As long as Klaus is still a regular on TVD i dont mind the idea of this new show...but if it means Klaus leaving TVD then i dont want it to get picked up. I love TVD as it is and i dont want this new show to take away from it. No one has really said if the characters on this show are leaving TVD, or if this is just acting as another hour a week of TVD and the characters we all love. :S


Many of the upcoming episode will involve many twists and turns besides looking for the cure but I just want the show to run normal again. ;P


I don't really care if the characters from TVD appear in The Originals. I'm watching it no matter what. I didn't start watching TVD until after The Originals came into it so they're the only reason I'm watching.


Every time I decide to check out any info on this thing, i become that much less likely to watch it. Beyond sad. And the thing is, at this m=point I'm only watching TVD for Klaus, Hate Klaroline with a passion, and now the possibility of Klaroline becoming a recurring event? I don't think i can take it. Feeling like i'm in an evanescence song.


I won't be tuning into any unless Kol comes back!
