Will there be another season of The Originals?
Sadly, the answer is no. Season five of The Originals will the the last one in the vampire teen drama series.
The show’s executive producer Julie Plec issued a statement last year shortly before San Diego Comic-Con confirming the news.
She shared the statement on Twitter, which 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.”
While The Originals may be coming to an end, the possibility of further spin-offs within the same universe have been floated.
Plec told TVLine: “I think there are future shows down the line that can be spawned out of this world and could tell good stories. It’s a hope for the future if nothing else.”
