We are hugely excited to be giving the world’s original vampires centre stage in our autumn line-up.”

Jeffrey Schlesinger, President of Warner Bros. Worldwide Television Distribution asl said ”Syfy is the perfect home for The Originals and we are certain not only will fans in the UK who have made The Vampire Diaries such an enormous hit embrace this new series, but new viewers will as well.”
