The wait is finally over! The Originals trailer is finally here! And even though it’s barely a minute long, it’s packed with intrigue, showcasing the impending battle between Klaus and Marcel. We’re getting goosebumps just talking about it.

The video recaps the history of the original vampire family running New Orleans, and Marcel’s current mad-with-power regime. Looks like pretty witch Sophie Deveraux plans to enlist the help of the Mikaelson brothers to crush Marcel. But uh, doesn’t she realize that putting Klaus in charge might make things even worse?

We also get to see some scenes of Klaus, Elijah, and Rebekah looking super hot (hopefully plotting their coup!), and we’re treated to a very short glimpse of Haley, although there’s no sign of that baby bump yet.

Such great imagery! Not to mention great music. Yeah Yeah Yeahs fans will recognize the tune, called “Sacrilege.” It’s the perfect choice for the darker, moodier tone of The Vampire Diaries’ spin-off.

Now that we’ve gotten a glimpse into the new series, do you think we can find our own witch to speed up time for us? Because we are DYING at the thought of having to wait until October 3 for the premiere!
