The Originals is a television series which has aired on the CW since 2013. It revolves around the original vampire family introduced in the second season of the Vampire Diaries who were the main antagonist of the series up until the shows fourth season.
In the series Niklaus Mikaelson heads to New Orleans after somehow getting a werewolf pregnant. A rival vampire group lead by his former protige Marcel has taken over the city and it's up to Niklause as well as his siblings Elijah and Rebecca to take it back and protect his child at the same time.
Unlike the Vampire Diaries this show is less about the vampires and more about witchcraft. Since none of the main characters are by definition "humans" fear of being turned or feeding really isn't a big part of the show so fanging out is few and far between (even more so than the Vampire Diaries where it only happens a few times a season).
Rebekah Mikaelson (Claire Holt)The Vampire Diaries Rebecca might be one of the first vampires but she acts very much like a spoiled teenage girl. Her and Elijah are the "voice of reason" of the group as they do have human like emotions as opposed to Niklaus who is a monster. It also slightly complicates things that she is a former love interest of Marcel's. A relationship Niklaus didn't approve of not to mention she also becomes a bit of a feminist toward the middle of the shows first season.
