The Vampire Diaries

The Originals Season 1: New Cast Promo Pics Revealed!

When Season 1 of The Originals premieres on Tuesday, October 3, we’ll watch as Klaus Mikaelson — the original vampire-werewolf hybrid — returns to his roots in New Orleans. It’s the city that his family helped build, the city from which he and his siblings, Elijah and Rebekah, were exiled a century ago by their relentless father.

Drawn back by a mysterious tip that a plot is brewing against him in the supernatural melting pot, Klaus is surprised that the city still feels like home despite the decades he’s been away. Curious as to why Klaus would return to the one place he swore he would never set foot in again, Elijah follows his brother and learns that Hayley, Klaus’s onetime werewolf flame, has also come to the French Quarter searching for clues to her family history. When a powerful witch named Sophie Deveraux reveals the almost unbelievable news that Hayley is carrying Klaus’s unborn child, Elijah realizes that the Original family has been given a second chance at the humanity and redemption they crave.

We have less than a month until the Season 1 premiere of this highly-anticipated show, but even that’s not soon enough! So to quench your thirst for all things vampire, werewolf, witch, and hybrid, ogle these newly released promo photos from The CW!

The Originals premiere on October 3 at 9 p.m. before moving to its permanent timeslot on Tuesday, October 8 at 8!
