Following the huge success of the hit The CW vampire television series The Vampire Diaries, it is no surprise that there has been a lot of buzz surrounding the upcoming spin-off show The Originals. The Originals is set to see a number of familiar faces including Joseph Morgan, Daniel Gillies and Phoebe Tonkin.
This has led to many people claiming that The Originals will have a love triangle between Phoebe's character Haley and the two brothers played by Joseph and Daniel, much like the one in The Vampire Diaries between Elena (Nina Dobrev) and the two brothers Stefan (Paul Wesley) and Damon (Ian Somerhalder). However, Joseph insists that this is not the case.
Morgan told Spoilers Guide, "Because we were the first people cast — myself, Daniel Gillies and Phoebe Tonkin — it’s easy to assume that it’ll be a love triangle with Haley and the two brothers, but it’s something so utterly different. That would be a cheap shot to have a carbon copy of The Vampire Diaries, which [the spin-off] really isn’t."
The pilot episode of The Originals is set to air, as an episode of The Vampire Diaries, on The CW on April 25. The Originals has not yet been picked up for a full season by The CW but it is expected that it will be.
