Some combination of Christmas, Hanukah and July 4 came early for fans of Pretty Little Liars and The Vampire Diaries this year, as BOTH shows are in line for spinoffs in the fall:

Ravenswood has been confirmed by ABC Family as premiering in October, while a backdoor pilot for The Originals airs on April 25.

Which series has the TV Fanatic staff most excited? We answer that question below and then turn it over to our readers...

Miranda Wicker: The Originals. Elijah. Hopefully shirtless Klaus having hot hybrid sex with Hayley. Enough said.

Steve Marsi: PLL, because who Among us tv fAnAtics isn't enthrAlled with the concept of rAvenswood. Am I right y'All?

Carissa Pavlica: I'm looking forward to finally being able to enjoy The Vampire Diaries without The Originals, so that's a big NO for that series. As crAzy as Pretty Little Liars gets, they've never crossed me enough to tune out, so I'll be tuning into Ravenswood. Guaranteed.

Leigh Raines: Hmmm both shows are definitely guilty pleasures but I'm going with Ravenswood. The originals get a little too "brooding" for me at times.

Nick McHatton: I've never cared about Klaus or the other originals (aside from Elijah), so Ravenswood is my favorite new spinoff. Plus, can you imagine all the pretty people they'll pack into Ravenswood?

Matt Richenthal: Claire Holt will be on The Originals, right? And Phoebe Tonkin? So how is this a question?!?

YOUR turn, TV Fanatics: For which spinoff are you most excited?

Vampire Diaries Quotes

You want a love that consumes you. You want passion and adventure, and even a little danger... I want you to get everything you're looking for. But for right now, I want you to forget that this happened. Can't have people knowing I'm in town yet. Goodnight, Elena.


Damon: You know what they are? Children. Like lighting a candle's going to make everything OK, or even saying a prayer. Or pretending Elena's not going to end up just like the rest of us murdering vampires. Stupid, delusional, exasperating little children. And I know what you're going to say: 'It makes them feel better, Damon.' So what? For how long? A minute, a day? What difference does it make? Because in the end, when you lose somebody, every candle, every prayer is not going to make up for the fact that the only thing you have left is hole in your life where that somebody that you cared about used to be. And a rock with a birthday carved into it that I'm pretty sure is wrong. So thanks, friend. Thanks for leaving me here to babysit. Because I should be long gone by now. I didn't get the girl, remember? I'm just stuck here fighting my brother and taking care of the kids. You owe me big.
Alaric: I miss you too, buddy.
