Fans of The Vampire Diaries’ biggest villain, Original hybrid werewolf/vampire Klaus, you may want to brace yourselves for the best news ever. A pilot for a potential spinoff from TVD has officially been greenlit by The CW in consideration for next season, Deadline reports.

The Originals, from TVD co-creator/exec-producer Julie Plec, will star Joseph Morgan‘s Klaus as well as series newcomer Phoebe Tonkin, who played werewolf Hayley in the first half of Season 4. The spinoff will focus on the fan-favorite family of Original vampires — the oldest vampires in existence — as Klaus returns to the supernatural melting pot that is the French Quarter of New Orleans, a town he actually helped build centuries ago. There, he is reunited with his diabolical former protégé Marcel.

And here’s the best news yet: we will actually be getting a sneak peek at the new series during an upcoming episode of TVD airing on April 25, serving as the potential backdoor pilot. Plec will write the episode as well as executive produce The Originals (if it gets a series order) with Alloy Entertainment’s Leslie Morgenstein and Gina Girolamo for Alloy, Warner Bros TV and CBS TV Studios. TVD showrunner Kevin Williamson, who is working on his upcoming Fox show The Following, is not involved with the spinoff.
