Joseph Morgan Hopes 'The Originals' Series Finale Will Be 'Satisfying' For Fans

Joseph Morgan Hopes 'The Originals' Series Finale Will Be 'Satisfying' For Fans

There’s not really much Joseph Morgan can actually tell anyone about the final season of The Originals.

The British-born actor spoke with US Weekly over the weekend and spilled what he could.

“Right now it’s utter turmoil and betrayal and bloodshed and the good stuff it normally is,” he shared. “We’ll see, I don’t know, I’ve only read up until episode 7. So I’ve got six more to read, so I don’t know how it’s going to end.”

However, there’s one thing that he does hope happens at the end of the show — that the fans are satisfied.

And one more thing:

Joseph shared, “I hope that we’re going to get the end that is satisfying and that all characters will be at some sort of peace.”

The Originals will return next year on The CW.

Welcome to The Originals family, Jedidiah Goodacre and Torrance Coombs!

Meanwhile, Jedidah, who you know from Descendants as Chad Charming will play Roman, “a devilish and charming schoolmate of Hope Mikaelson. Roman is a recently turned vampire who becomes curious about Hope’s family after she’s involved in a mysterious incident at school.”

Nina Dobrev Will Not Be Returning for Final Season of 'The Originals'

Fans who were hoping to see Nina Dobrev in the fifth and final season of The Originals are unfortunately out of luck.

Nina played Elena Gilbert on The CW’s The Vampire Diaries, so it makes sense to wonder if she would make an appearance on the show’s spin-off series, The Originals.

“No, I will not be on The Originals, no,” Nina told Entertainment Weekly.

“We literally just wrapped a few months ago,” she continued. “I doubt that would be in the books for me. But, yeah, no, I’ve been so busy with all kinds of other things going on right now that I don’t know that I’d be able to sign on.”

“I’m not a young twenty-something anymore,” Nina added with a laugh. “I don’t think I could play a vampire. I’m getting old.”

You can catch Nina in the horror flick Flatliners, set to hit theaters on September 29!

Hayley's New Love Interest on 'The Originals' is a 'Flirtatious Chef'

Hayley's New Love Interest on 'The Originals' is a 'Flirtatious Chef'

Hayley has a brand new romance when The Originals returns for its final season.

According to TVLine, it may or may not be a character named Declan, who is a “flirtatious Irish chef with a hot temper to match his killer charm.”

Declan apparently doesn’t know anything about New Orlean’s mystical side — like how could you miss that?!

He “starts out with no knowledge of New Orleans’ supernatural shenanigans — until he’s introduced to a famous vampire family by the woman he loves.”


Hmmm — sounds like Declan is definitely Hayley’s new guy.

Another new character for the final season includes Antoinette, a free-spirited “old-school vampire” whose charm and wit mask her dark history.

We may be seeing Danielle Rose Russell a lot longer than just in the final season of The Originals.

During the TCA tour today, CW president Mark Pedowitz revealed that there have been talks for a spinoff centered on Hope Mikaelson.

“There’s been many discussions about the character Hope,” he shared. “I’m very interested if she wishes to do it in the The Vampire Diaries universe.”

He adds that while there are talks, nothing is set in stone.

“Nothing has come out of it yet. Julie [Plec] really wants to get the final season of The Originals done.”

For the upcoming season of The Originals, we’ll see Hope attend the special school run by headmistress Caroline Forbes (Candice King).
