CW Considering A Spinoff Of The Originals Focused On Hope

With the Vampire Diaries already gone and The Originals ending next season, fans of the universe can cling to hope coming out of the Television Critics Association Summer press tour as the CW president Mark Pedowitz mentioned that they are in early talks with creator Julie Plec about a potential spinoff series. The new series would focus on the character of Hope Mikaelson, the daughter of Klaus Mikaelson (Joseph Morgan) and Hayley Marshall-Kenner (Phoebe Tonkin).

The OriginalsPedowitz said:

There's been many discussions about the character Hope. I'm very interested if she wishes to do it in the The Vampire Diaries universe. Nothing has come out of it yet. Julie really wants to get the final season of The Originals done.

Hope was conceived in season four and will get a growth burst in season five. The character is called a Tribrid, mixing the genes of a witch, werewolf and vampire, but the extent of her powers are a mystery. She was named hope as she was seen by her uncle Elijah (Daniel Gilles) as bringing hope to the family.
