VAMPIRE Diaries spin-off The Originals is to air on Syfy in the UK from Tuesday, October 22, at 10pm.

The show is based around the Mikaelson siblings Klaus, Elijah and Rebekah, who first appeared in season two of The Vampire Diaries, and will see the Originals return to their former home in New Orleans to become embroiled in a power struggle.

They will also find themselves in a community “fuelled by intolerance, lies and a selfish drive for power”.

Joseph Morgan, Daniel Gillies, Phoebe Tonkin, Charles Michael Davis, Leah Pipes and Daniella Pineda all star in the series.

As yet, ITV2 has still to confirm an air date for the next series of The Vampire Diaries.
