A broadcast drama series will call it quits after one more season. The creator and showrunner of the CW’s “The Originals,” Julie Plec, revealed in a post on her Twitter account that the show’s upcoming fifth season will be its last.
The show is a spinoff of “The Vampire Diaries,” and the news comes one year after the announcement of the end of that series. “The Originals,” which premiered in fall 2013, was renewed about two months ago for its fifth season.
In her Twitter post, Plec wrote: “Ending a show is always bittersweet, but for me, it’s a true blessing to be a part of making that choice. I want each actor to play their last scene as their character, and to put their character to bed with grace and care.”
The series tracks the activities of the family of vampire Klaus Mikaelson, played by Joseph Morgan.
