Tonight marks the end of the road for “The Originals” this season, and unfortunately, we have to say that this may also be the last time that you see Joseph Morgan on your television as Klaus in 2016, pending some sort of guest appearance on “The Vampire Diaries.”
With the past two finales, we were able to watch them knowing that there was going to be another season premiering in the fall. Unfortunately, at this point The CW is keeping the season 4 start date a mystery. The Joseph Morgan drama was kept off of the fall schedule, though the idea here is that it could premiere in midseason, as early presumably as January. A possible good comparison is that it could premiere a week or two early than “The Originals” premiered on Friday nights earlier this year after starting off the season on Thursdays.
As for why the show is being put on hold for as long as it is, there’s really only one clear reason why: The network wants to try out some other things. Thanks to two new series airing this fall in “No Tomorrow” alongside “Frequency,” something had to give. The same goes for “Supergirl” flying over to The CW after spending the first year on CBS. “The Originals” is being replaced on Fridays by “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend,” and if you really love the show and want it to stick around, the only advice we can give you is watch live, and don’t count on others to do it! Of course, this applies more to our American readers, but even watching internationally helps to a degree.
We imagine that there is going to be much more to say on “The Originals” over the coming days, so be sure to stay attuned to the link here to get some more of the latest insight!
