What is ‘The Originals’?
‘The Originals’ is a spin-off series of ‘The Vampire Diaries’ which centres around three of the six Mikaelson siblings: Klaus, Elijah, and Rebekah. The Mikaelsons are well known throughout the supernatural community and are called “the originals” for being the first vampires in creation.
‘The Originals’ episodes traces the story of these three siblings. The season begins with the three siblings returning to the French Quarter since their last stay in 1919. While they had originally built the French Quarter, they were forced to abandon it as they fled from their vengeful father, Mikael. Over time, new friendships, love, and death take place during the entire season.
Simultaneously, Klaus and his siblings prepare themselves to take over what is rightfully theirs and protect the next generation from all possible dangers.
What happened in season 5?
The fifth season takes place seven years after the release of the fourth season. Hope is now a teenager at a school for supernatural children. While she tries her best to find ways out to help bring her father back to New Orleans, Hayley attempts to minimise the fallout from her actions. Meanwhile, Rebekah fails to sustain her relationship with Marcel.
Eventually, Klaus comes back to New Orleans but for reasons that don’t match his daughter’s intentions. Elijah meets Antoinette in New York. They break up in between but patch right after and, later get engaged. In the later episodes, things get pretty dark when there are a lot of deaths and disappearances. But, in the end, everyone comes together as a family, just like the protagonists wanted, and they swear to stick by each other’s side at all cost.
After the end of season 5, fans have been very desperate about another season and are hopeful about ‘The Originals’ Season 6 in 2020. They are also waiting to see the line up of ‘The Originals’ cast for the upcoming season.
Season 6 confirmation
While there is no new official statement by the creators of the show, in 2018, show-runner Julie Plec confirmed that the series would mark the end of the popular spin-off. In an interview with “TVLine”, she 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”.
What do fans say?
In solidarity fans have taken to social media to express their views on a new season.
@alannasofiax on Twitter said, “the originals reboot? yes please even if they just make an appearance” Another fan, @muvajiita said, “#TheOriginals need to come out with season 6.”
“Can The Originals make a season 6 we need one more season, I’ve rewatched it too many times” exclaimed a third fan.
Meanwhile, a petition was made on change.org with over 2,100 supporters who signed with their reasons for wanting a 6th season. “I’m signing this petition because I know that just like me, there are other people who enjoy the originals and want season six to happen”, wrote a fan.
Another fan petitioned, saying, “The originals was a great show and we fans deserve more season please gives us more season, the originals was a unique show and was getting better year by year, it was getting more popular why end it here, you want to create a spinoff from it “legacy” find but don’t end the show. You could add a new season where Klaus and Elijah get a better ending.”
There is a lot of uproar around the revival of the show. Even a ‘The Originals’ trailer, at the moment, can provide a glimpse of hope to its fans. Fans are convinced that the show must return with season 6 in 2020, even if it means fewer ‘The Originals’ episode.
