Get out your day planners, The Originalsfans! The CW has announced its fall premiere schedule. When will our lives become complete again with an all-new weekly installment of the killer Vampire Diariesspin-off? Read on to find out!
The Originals will air its Season 2 premiere on Monday, October 6 at 8 p.m. That’s right, folks — if you didn’t catch the news before — our favorite vampire royal family is moving to Monday nights at 8 p.m., to be followed by new drama Jane the Virgin. Taking over The Originals’ previous Tuesday at 8 p.m. spot will be Arrow spin-off Flash, which airs its series premiere on October 7. Good luck, Barry Allen. That time slot worked well for a little spin-off called The Originals — we hope it serves you just as well in your inaugural season.
Though The Originals is currently on filming hiatus, the vampire drama has already filmed some of its Season 2 episodes. For whatever reason, the cast and crew tacked on some Season 2 filming to the end of Season 1 filming before breaking for hiatus. In April, executive producer Julie Plec tweeted: “Meanwhile The Originals still has 6 days and 3 season 2 eps to shoot before we get a break. Hence my impending death-slash-mental breakdown.” If only that meant we could get a mid-summer The Originals special. Alas, we shall have to wait until October 6 to catch up with the Mikaelsons and co. If the end of Season 1 was any indication, the wait will be totally worth it.
Are you as excited as we are to see the Season 2 premiere? What do you think of the new time slot? Sound off in the comments below!
