Backdoor pilot “The Originals” is set to air as an episode of “The Vampire Diaries” on April 25th.
The spin-off series features the original vampire family in New Orleans, specifically Klaus as he meets up with his long lost vampire protégé.
Filming first began on March 11th as the actors made their way down to Louisiana. Zap2it shares an on-set picture of Joseph Morgan, Phoebe Tonkin and Daniel Gillies.
While filming in Louisiana, Joseph Morgan tweeted:
I’m in New Orleans and I love it!

Are you hoping “The Originals” will be picked up for CW’s fall lineup?
