The statement read: “This year, we invite you to help us say goodby to The Originals, which begins shooting its fifth and final season on Monday.

“It’s both a gift and a burden to be able to control the ending of a series.

“Many shows are not lucky enough to have a hand in deciding when the end has come.

“Being able to celebrate the completion of The Vampire Diaries was a joyful and deeply emotional ride, a luxury gifted by Mark Pedowitz at The CW and Peter Roth at WBTV, who, as TV fans themselves, know what it means when a fan is able to say goodbye.”

“Ending a show is always bittersweet, but for me, it’s a true blessing to be a part of making that choice.”

The Originals season 5 airs on The CW on April 20.
