What is The Originals all about?
Nearly two years since the show’s season finale premiered, fans have been patiently waiting for the creators to give them a positive update on a new season. But before we dive into the much-awaited details, here’s a quick recap of what’s gone down so far.
A spin-off series to its predecessor ‘The Vampire Diaries’, The Original cente
rs around three of the six Mikaelson siblings: Klaus, Elijah and Rebekah. The supernatural heroes are known to being the first vampires in creation.
The series begins with the siblings returning to the city of New Orleans for the first time since 1919, where a pregnant Hayley has also settled. Having originally built the French Quarter, they had been forced to abandon it when fleeing from their vengeful father, Mikael.
As new friendships, love and deaths take place, Klaus and his siblings prepare themselves to inherit what is theirs and guard the next generation from all dangers.
What happened to the Mikaelson siblings in season 5?
After seven long years of waiting for season 5, fans had their hands on their hearts as they carefully witnessed heartbreaks, fallouts and patch-ups. As Hope tries to find ways to bring her father back to New Orleans, Hayley attempts to minimize the fallout from her actions. Meanwhile, Rebekah fails to sustain her relationship with Marcel.
While Klaus comes back to New Orleans, Elijah meets Antoinette in New York. They go through a rough patch for sometime but eventually get back together leading to a very special marriage proposal. The series did take a dark turn with deaths and disappearances becoming central to the show, eventually resulting in the remaining members of the family coming back together.
Season 6 plotline
Fans have been eagerly waiting for the sixth instal
lment for a very long time and have taken to various social media platforms to express how much they want to watch their favourite characters back on screen.
“Can The Originals make a season 6? We need one more season. I’ve rewatched it too many times
.” Tweeted @iamFidel_
“@julieplec we need a season 6 of ‘The Originals’. I need a season 6 of The Originals. Get them all back together again and have a family reunion…make a realm world so we can see Aiden, Josh, Haley, Jackson, Nicklaus and Elijah..I miss them all”, Tweeted another fan.
Some fans were unhappy with the way the show ended. So a great way to begin season 6 could be by taking inspiration from various fan theories that fans have submitted online.
One such theory suggests “I really liked how the season wrapped up. It would have been nice to see some sort of afterlife for both Klaus and Elijah, but them talking about it and leaving it up to the viewers was also kind of cool. I also think the whole white oak stake thing was kind of poetic since the entire series practically focused around it, it would have been boring to just let Marcel bite them both to death”
“Klaus being stuck as a wolf until death, Elijah reuniting with Hayley in the afterlife and Rebekah marrying Marcel would’ve been a perfect ending. Don’t care for Kol and Davina. Kol’s entire plot revolved around her. Felt they could have done so much more with him”, suggested another a fan.
When will season 6 release?
As of 2018, Julia Plec announced the end of the spin-off which said, “I think there are future shows down the line that can be spawned out of this world and could tell good stories. It’s a hope for the future if nothing else
While there is no official confirmation by the creators or actors of the show, it is uncertain to say when season 6 will be released. However, knowing how much the fans really want a new season, the showrunners might work up something good to bring the season to an end exactly the way the fans hoped for.
