Fans of the show know that the Season 4 of The Originals is nearing its end and its a great time to start thinking what might await them in Season 5. Apparently, some huge changes will be seen by the Mikaelson family, with Hollow taking over Hope’s body, the Season 5 will probably bring one of the biggest threats the family has ever faced.
If fans have been worried about The Vampire Diaries spinoff series future, do not despair, at least not anymore. The sequel will be delivered, and it will be making a few changes to its story. According to TVLine, CW definitely renewed The Originals for Season 5, but there was also an announcement that said show-runner Michael Narducci will not return. Instead, The Vampire Diaries creator Julie Plec will step in for the new season. But this is not the big change we have been mentioning. The most notable change to The Originals will revolve around Hope, played by Summer Fontana. What we found out from Entertainment Weekly, this TV Show will apparently make another time jump which will make Hope older and introduce her to a possible new love interest – a vampire named Roman.
Plec is unfortunately tight-lipped, and he isn’t saying practically anything about the Season 5, but thankfully there is the promo for the June 23 finale which shows the Mikaelsons desperate to save Hope. According to the TV Guide report, The Originals is set for a midseason return to the CW in 2018 which means we have some time to wait until we find anything out about the fate of our favorite vampire family.
Back to the lady under the spotlight – Hope. This, of course, isn’t the first time that this show has helped Hope grow up. You must remember that The Originals between Season 3 and Season 4 jumped around five years and introduced Fontana as a new cast member. Now, Klaus will have to make due with a teenage Hope and possibly her growing new powers as a witch, werewolf, and vampire. According to TV Guide, Plec announced at the ATX Television Festival, that Hope might spend her teenage years attending the Salvatore School for the Young and Gifted. Thanks to this Hope could be responsible for another spinoff in The Vampire Diaries universe, at least according to TVLine. This hasn’t been confirmed, but it also hadn’t been disputed by the CW or Warner Bros., while 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.”
This only shows one thing, and it is the creator’s determination to achieve something bigger and greater with Hope’s character. That also means one more thing – the Hollow is no match for whatever the creators prepared for Hope or the family sworn to protect her.
