The Originals Season 2 Trailer: Is There Hope?

at .

Be warned, Originals Fanatics:

The First Family of New Orleans is about to fall apart. Even more than usual.

Julie Plec and company presented the first trailer for The Originals Season 2 at their Comic-Con panel discussion today, giving us a glimpse of Rebekah telling Hope a troubling bedtime story... of Hayley on the major war path... Klaus and Mikael going at it... and Davina meeting a mysterious stranger named Caleb.

What else can fans expect this fall? Settle in and watch now. This is good stuff:

“We talked a lot about the sins of the past coming back to haunt us in the present,” executive producer Michael Narducci said, while that Plec yearned for the upcoming season to have a dark, warped fairytale element, adding:

“Our heroes are dealing with the return of their monstrous parents and what it means to them.”

Other panel highlights included:

  • Season 2 will explore what Hope “means to the supernatural world and what curse is going to be put upon her."
  • Hayley will be looking for "guidance" from Klaus. Of the vengeful variety.
  • Davina will “playing by her own rules now,” Danielle Campbell saud. “She’s not being tossed around. She’s dishing it out.” She's also "smitten" with Daniel Sharman's Caleb.
  • Charles Michael Davis said Marcel will have “his hands full trying rebuild his vampire community, which has been whittled down to him and Josh.”
  • There may be a love interest for Josh, Narducci said!
  • Leah Pipes will be working on her psychology degree, trying to get away from the French Quarter chaos. "I really want to see her be the person she always has been,” the actress said. “I’m excited to see her be more comfortable in her environment or just more aware of her environment.
  • Yes, there is a "pitch" on the table for a Vampire Diaries crossover, Plec previewed. But it's only a pitch at the moment.

The Originals Season 2 Episode 1 airs October 6 at 8 p.m. ET on The CW.

The Originals Quotes

They say the passage of time will heal all wounds, but the greater the loss, the deeper the cut and the more difficult the process to become whole again. The pain may fade, but scars serve as a reminder of our suffering and make the bearer all the more resolved never to be wounded again. So as time moves along we get lost in distractions, act out in frustration, react with aggression, give in to anger, and all the while we plot and plan as we wait to grow stronger, and before we know it, the time passes. We are healed. Ready to begin anew.


Over the course of my long life, I have come to believe that we are bound forever to those with whom we share blood. And while we may not choose our family, that bond can be our greatest strength, or our deepest regret. This unfortunate truth has haunted me for as long as I can recall.
