Fans rejoiced when the third season of The Originals was announced. Set in the historical city of New Orleans but shot mostly in Georgia, The Originals, a spinoff of The Vampire Diaries, explores the storylines of multiple supernatural creatures and characters. Home to werewolves, witches, vampire clans, vampire rivals and even vampire werewolf hybrids, The Big Easy in The Originals is anything but laid back.
The father of the Original family, Mikael, played by Sebastian Roche, might return in flashbacks this season. Expect a lot of flashbacks. Also appearing on the newest season will be a sultry vampire, Aurora, played by Rebecca Breeds, and Lucien, played by Andrew Lees, a suave vampire who has some unfinished business with Klaus. Lucien apparently has it out for the Mikaelson clan of New Orleans.
Another one of the new faces being introduced this season to the show is Jason Dohring, who will be playing Will Kinney, a good-natured New Orleans detective who tries to keep the voodoo vampires in line. Little does Kinney know that not all bloody crime can come from fangs in the night.
Similar to The Vampire Diaries, the center of The Originals will always be family. Season three primary focuses on threats close to home, with outsider vampires infringing on the original clan in the crescent city.
New viewers and fans who’ve fallen behind can brush up on everything that happened in season one easily. It’s now streaming on Netflix. Sink your fangs into The Originals season three, returning on Thursday, October 8, at 9pm on The CW.
