Just one day after airing its backdoor pilot for The Originals, the CW announced it would be picking up the Vampire Diaries spin-off for a full series!

“As soon as we saw last night’s episode of The Vampire Diaries, we knew we wanted more of The Originals,” said CW president Mark Pedowitz. The Vampire Diaries is as fast-paced and well-written as ever, and Julie Plec has created an equally compelling world for The Originals.”

But it’s not just Mark who seems to be in love with the show. As well us here at Wetpaint Entertainment acting giddy with fangirl glee, the cast and crew of both The Vampire Diaries and The Originals took to Twitter to share their excitement over the news.
