Warner Bros. Television in association with Bonanza Productions and Alloy Entertainment are in pre-production on a new series titled “The Originals”, which will be a spinoff from the hit CW series “The Vampire Diaries”. Casting directors in Los Angeles and New York are holding auditions for the series regulars, which include an over 18 actress who can play a 16 year old witch, an early 20’s female student who is intrigued by the deviance of the French Quarter, a late 20s early 30s female witch, and Klaus’ diabolical former protégé Marcel who is late 20s early 30s. Shooting begins March 6, 2013 and will take place in New Orleans and Atlanta.

“The Originals” centers on Klaus Mikaelson and the Original family of vampires, as he returns to the supernatural crucible that is the French Quarter of New Orleans, a town he helped build centuries ago, and is reunited with his diabolical former apprentice Marcel. The show will feature two new characters who are witches, as well as a human female named Cami who is a psychology student fascinated by the study of Human Behavior. Cami is allured to the aberration of the French Quarter, resolute on answering the unanswerable question – what makes someone evil?

E!Online has some scoop on our favorite Big Bad Hybrid. Check it!

AlexJohnJohnson: Vampire Diaries, pretty pretty please?
How about some scoop on Klaus? Good? Good. The OG hybrid will have a “heroic moment” in Thursday’s episode, but in a classic Klaus move, it’ll be followed by “something so horrible, you’re like, ‘Man, what’s wrong with you?!'” teases executive producer Julie Plec. “Klaus will never be a hero, but that’s not to say he won’t do heroic things.” So what’s Klaus’ next move now that his mother has successfully created the ultimate vampire hunter? “This is a second call of arms to Klaus, who may have gotten distracted by pretty blondes and paintings and horses,” Plec says. “This is the reminder that this guy means business, and he’s not going to let his guard down again. It’s a nice reboot of the villain.” Hero and villain all wrapped in one devilishly handsome British hybrid? Only on TVD!

Just in time for Valentine’s Day! The CW has whipped up a few Vampire Diaries related Valentines to share with your friends.

Head on over to The Vampire Diaries official Facebook page for all three!

Here are another set of spoilers from next week’s episode “The New Deal”. This time Zap2It dishes with 5 things we can look forward to.

1. Klaus (Joseph Morgan) has a domestic side. We’re almost nervous to admit it, but our big bad wolf has become one of the most complex characters on television right now. The way that his vulnerability and villainy tangle up together is fascinating to watch. With his father out of the picture, Klaus has big plans to reunite his remaining family members — complete with a dream house in the town where they last loved each other as humans. It’s poetic, really.

Vlada Gelman of LA Times, caught up with Julie Plec where she teases upcoming episodes, a return of a character and Klaus’s arrival.

“We will be seeing Trevor again this year,” executive producer Julie Plec revealed to Show Tracker during an interview. But even “Vampire Diaries” can’t perform miracles, so the character won’t be coming back from the dead. Instead, the return appearance will come during a format that fans of the show know all too well for period garb and revealing truths. Yes, another flashback episode is on its way!

“It’s Episode 19, which is the first time we meet Klaus,” explained Plec. “We’re also going back into the past.”
