A spin-off from the popular The Vampire Diaries, which is based on the best-selling book series, The Originals is about what the name suggests: The original vampire family. They return to New Orleans, a city they help build, and the mayhem begins.

The Originals: The Complete Fifth Season begins seven years after the core members of the Mikaelson family – Klaus, Elijah, Rebekah and Kol – each absorb a quarter of the Hollow’s dark energy and flee New Orleans to keep their beloved city and young Hope safe.  In the interim, Vincent and Josh preside over the Big Easy almost devoid of conflict, while Hayley and Freya watch Hope grow into a teenager, eventually opting to send her to the Salvatore School so that Caroline can keep an eye on her.  With Marcel following Rebekah out of town and Elijah stripped of his memory, the danger seems to be contained . . . Until a sudden tragedy forces the siblings to return home.  As the Mickaelsons return to New Orleans, bringing the pieces of a centuries old evil with them, it becomes clear that the closing chapter of this family saga will be as bloody and emotional as ever.
All 13 one-hour episodes are in the DVD, as well as these special features:
