The Vampire Diaries

The Originals: New Promo Pits Klaus and Marcel Against Each Other (VIDEO)

We are already overjoyed about the rapidly-approaching premiere of the Vampire Diaries spin-off The Originals. The scene will be shifting from Mystic Falls to New Orleans, and the focus will be on Klaus Mikaelson and the rest of his original family — but with this new promo, it’s evident that Klaus will meet his match in Marcel, the self-proclaimed “King of New Orleans.”

Klaus (Joseph Morgan) and Marcel (Charles Michael Davis) are billed as bitter rivals with an intense past in this promo, which utilizes old footage to set up the upcoming conflict. While Marcel says that “the party never ends,” but it doesn’t take long to realize that this ride isn’t going to be a party. “I want what he has,” Klaus said. “I want to be king.”

The Originals premieres on October 3 after the Season 5 premiere of The Vampire Diaries. Will you be watching both of these sexy shows? Hit the comments!
