CW Planning a Spinoff to "The Vampire Diaries"

"The Hollywood Reporter" has brought word that soon (more than likely this season) the CW hit series "The Vampire Diaries" will branch off into a separate series that deals specifically with the original vampire family aptly titled "The Originals".

  In the Vampire Diaries universe the originals were a family of vikings who's mother put a curse on them believing to have protected them but ended up cursing them to eternal life as vampires.  The most prevalently seen member of the family "Klaus" actually being a Vampire/Werewolf hybrid.    As the story is told, unlike their offspring they can be slowed down but to kill them they have to be staked with a white oak stake from a specific tree (in other words they're pretty much unstoppable.

With this news comes hope that the lone female of the family "Rebekah" played by British actress Claire Holt does not get the vampire cure she is seeking during this season.
 That would at least give us something to look forward to as it's hard enough to comprehend that the first female vampire EVER has aspirations of being prom queen, head cheerleader and a house wife (not to mention the question of why half the family still has British accents though they've supposedly been in the new world for hundreds of years).
