‘Originals’ Is Not Just for ‘Vampire Diaries’ Fans, Says Joseph Morgan


The Vampire Diaries fans got their wish after wanting a spin-off show on the hit CW network and Joseph Morgan, who stars as Klaus in the hit new series The Originals wants to welcome non-Vampire Diaries viewers to the party as well.

The Originals, which offers a deeper glimpse into the world’s mythology, follows the original vampire family in New Orleans. And if you’ve never seen an episode of The Vampire Diaries, have no fear.

“The two shows are going to certainly be able to stand on their own,” Joseph tells On Air with Ryan Seacrest. “If audiences have never seen a frame of The Vampire Diaries they’ll be able to follow The Originals, easily but there are crossover fans. You know, this is all in the same universe, so I think there will be characters I think coming over.”

Catch The Originals on The CW tonight at 8/7c.
