Top 5 TV Shows To Watch If You Are A Fan Of ‘The Originals’

Vampires have ruled the world of books and movies for a long time. Believe it or not, your love for vampires is incomplete if you’re not a fan of the big bad hybrid Klaus. 

The Originals graced our lives in 2013 as a spin-off series of The Vampire Diaries. The half-werewolf, half-vampire Klaus had us all going wild with his impeccable British accent. 

TO has garnered immense popularity among fans, and it ended after five seasons. It revolved around the family drama of The Original Vampires in New Orleans. We have compiled a list of the top 5 shows to watch if you’ve been an Originals fan. 

1. The Vampire Diaries 

The Vampires Diaries is what started everything, including The Originals. It is a must-watch for anyone who loves The Originals. TVD is the story of two vampire brothers who fall in love with the same human girl. 

Paul Wesley, who played Stefan Salvatore, and Damon Salvatore, played by Ian Somerhalder, are the hottest vampires. Nina Dobrev played the role of Elena Gilbert, the love interest of the vampire brothers. This series has teen romance, action, and drama. 

2. Supernatural 

Supernatural is the story of two demon hunter brothers, Sam Winchester and Dean Winchester, played by Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles. They follow their father’s path of ridding the earth of supernatural beings. 

The unique chemistry between the brothers and the rather complex storyline make the show enjoyable. Supernatural has been the longest-running show in The CW history, ending in 2020.  

3. True Blood 

True Blood started way before The Originals, but its plot is just as gripping. It is based on a series of novels by Charlaine Harris. Pretty much like The Originals and TVD, the story dynamics are similar. 

The show is set in Los Angeles and sees many mystical creatures coming together. The main storyline explores the love triangle between human Sookie and vampires, Bill and Eric. If you’re a fan of vampire and human mingling, check out this show. 

4. The 100 

The 100 is a sci-fi series, unlike the vampire fantasy angle explored in The Originals. It is set in the future and sees inhabitants from the earth moving to space for safety. 

The further storyline explores how 100 teenage mutants go down on earth to see if it’s worth inhabiting. They face a couple of challenges as they get on with their struggle to ensure survival for all. 

5. Buffy The Vampire Slayer 

Buffy The Vampire Slayer paved the way for shows like TVD and The Originals to come into existence. It explores a similar setting where the humans and supernaturals share intertwined lives. 

The series centers around the lead character Buffy, played by Sarah Michelle Gellar. She takes on the job of protecting the earth from evil beings, including vampires. It’s a perfect show to watch from yesteryears if you’re missing The Originals.
