The OriginalsAnne Rice, eat your heart out. Vampires moved back into New Orleans with CW TV show The Originals.

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.

Created by Julie Plec (TV’s The Tomorrow People), The Originals stars Joseph Morgan (Armistice), Daniel Gillies (TV’s Saving Grace) and Phoebe Tonkin (Bait) from The Vampire Diaries. Charles Michael Davis (TV’s Grey’s Anatomy) and Leah Pipes (TV’s The Deep End) were in one episode of the earlier show but their roles have built into starring characters in The Originals.

Averaging nearly 3.1 million viewers, the fantasy TV show is the CW’s number 2 series among adults.

All 22 one-hour episodes of season one are in the DVD and Blu-ray of The Originals: The Complete First Season as well as these special features:

  • commentary
  • the panel at the 2013 Comic-Con
  • the 2014 PaleyFest panel
