New Originals Preview: All About Elijah

by at . Comments

The CW has released a new promo for The Originals - and it's all about Elijah.

As previously reported, Julie Plec and company were faced with a challenge when crafting the fall premiere of a show that sort of already debuted in April as a backdoor pilot via The Vampire Diaries.

So how will producers reel in viewers that did not watch that episode? Who are unfamiliar with Klaus and company? By retelling the same basic story as that featured a few months ago... but doing so from Elijah's point of view.

It's an interesting concept and, come on, the more Daniel Gillies, the better, right? Watch this fun, fresh teaser now and start the countdown for the October 3 premiere of The Originals:
