Perez Hilton caught up with the cast of the Originals last night to talk about the new season!
Joseph gives us a small look into the new season of The Originals.
The Originals comes back this Fall for season two, and we already heard lots of juicy details about the new season in the show’s Comic-Con International: San Diego panel, but we also had the chance to catch up with star Joseph Morgan, who plays lead character Klaus, at the convention. Morgan chatted with us and a few reporters about where Klaus will pick up after the crazy happenings of the season finale (remember, there’s a time jump), like how much grief he’s going through, the brother who’s coming, and how much revenge he needs.
What can you tease about the first few episodes?
Joseph Morgan: They’re going to explore a lot more of the original parents and their relationship with us [the Mikaelson kids], how that made us the creatures or the people that we are, how Klaus’s relationship with his father influenced how he is as a father, and we’re going to finally find out which one of the brothers came back, which one of them it was at the end. He’s going to be seeking revenge on those who contributed to the sending away of his daughter or the need to send away his daughter. There’s going to be some payment needed — blood payment needed.
So Klaus will be getting his revenge?
JM: They each have different ideas to deal with the loss of Hope. Even though they’ve confined themselves to the compound — Elijah, Hayley, and Klaus — they are very distant with each other, so it’s like three strangers living in the same building. They have this huge baby-shaped hole in their lives that they don’t want to talk about, and they each remind each other of what they’ve lost. They have different ideas of how to deal with that, and Klaus’s idea — surprise, surprise — is revenge.
Is there going to be any levity amid all this darkness and drama?
JM: Yes, it comes in the form of Josh, everybody’s favorite character! There is, and [Daniel] Gillies and I work pretty hard to inject some levity into our relationship. A lot of it’s taken out! I feel like, if we’re having too much fun with the scene, it’s sort of going downhill because it’s more about our enjoyment. As well as levity, there’s some kind of relief from that darkness just with the compassion and the care that comes from these family members. We will see some rebuilding of relationships, and some of that will help alleviate from the dark cloud that’s over them at the moment.
How soon will Esther and Mikael be revealed to Klaus and the main characters?
JM: That’s in the “do not reveal” section of the talking points I was given! [But] on a show, which moves at a rapid pace, I think you can expect things to unfold quite quickly. We’re not ones for dragging out story lines on The Originals too far — except for the whole pregnancy thing.
During Comic-Con the cast of the Originals sat down with TV Line for a fun filled interview!
In the wake of its game-changing finale, what’s the forecast for Season 2 of The Originals?
Series stars Joseph Morgan, Daniel Gillies and Phoebe Tonkin amusingly struggled to answer that question during an “interrogation” by Andy Swift in TVLine’s San Diego Comic-Con video suite.
Thankfully, executive producer Julie Plec was there to lend a hand — along with cast members Charles Michael Davis, Leah Pipes and Danielle Campbell.
Yes, sometimes, it takes a village to deliver scoop and spoilers — and to conjure up the spirit of the late, great Aunt Jenna.
Press PLAY for the full, goofy experience, then hit the comments with your thoughts for Season 2 (and your dream Vampire Diaries crossover scenario)!

Today fans at Comic Con were given a look at the new season of The Originals! You can watch it here:
We have another new image of Joseph & Persia’s wedding thanks to the new issue of People magazine!
On July 5th Joseph married his fiance Persia White!
Sorry, ladies. Joseph Morgan is off the market.
The actor, who currently heads up the CW’s The Originals, wed his Vampire Diaries costar Persia White in an intimate ceremony in Ocho Rios, Jamaica, on July 5.
“It had a very rustic feel to it,” White tells PEOPLE. “There was nothing about it that was overwhelming or very huge or fabulous in that way. We tried to keep everything really intimate and beautiful and sort of going along with nature.”
The bride wore a Vera Wang dress with a cathedral-length veil, while the groom sported an ivory-colored silk tux with black lapels by Miguel Wilson. “And then I had a bow tie,” adds Morgan. “In fact, the bow tie was the first bow tie I’ve ever tied myself, so I was quite proud of that.”
The couple, who met on the set of season 3 of The Vampire Diaries, exchanged vows in front of 26 guests at a private villa, within sight of where they got engaged.
“I think one of the reasons we picked it was because we love the ocean and we both grew up by the sea,” White says. “To be by the sea was wonderful. And the people of Jamaica are just wonderful.”
So, who made the exclusive guest list? “It was mostly family, a handful of close friends,” Morgan says. “My best man was my best friend of almost 20 years, Matt Ryan. He actually plays John Constantine on the new NBC show Constantine, but we’ve been friends since we were teenagers.”
The pair danced to Florence + the Machine’s “Never Let Me Go” for their first turn around the dance floor. But their favorite moment involved a band of Jamaican drummers.
“We had this great group called the Children of the Drums,” Morgan says. “It was six Jamaican drummers, and they got everybody up on the dance floor. At one point, all of our guests were on the dance floor, which is an achievement, I think.”
The food wasn’t too shabby, either, especially the cake, which was vegan – in keeping with the couple’s plant-based menu. “It was a triple layer, chocolate on the inside and vanilla icing,” says White. “A beautiful, amazing cake.”
After helicoptering over to Negril for their honeymoon, the two relaxed by “partaking in the favorite local pastime – cliff jumping,” says Morgan. White adds: “That was what was more daunting than anything else. And we did it together, so we’re pretty proud of that.”
What’s next for the couple? Well, in addition to working on more film and TV projects together, they hope to start a family. Says White: “Little cute mini Josephs!”
TVLine’s Andy Swift gives us a run down of season 2 of the Originals.
With exactly 11 weeks until the second season premiere of The Originals, TVLine caught up with executive producers Julie Plec and Michael Narducci for the scoop on what the Big Easy has in store for our (anti)heroes.
In addition to being the title of the premiere, the EPs told us “Rebirth” will be a running theme of the CW drama’s sophomore season. Part of that will come from Klaus and Elijah confronting their parents — and, spoiler alert, Narducci told us “it’s not going to be a huge amount of time” before they figure out Mikael and Esther are back with a vengeance.
Ready, set, spoil!
HAYLIJAH | Unfortunately, it sounds like Hayley and Elijah’s relationship will be taking a step back in Season 2. “[Hayley] and Klaus are the only two hybrids in existence now, so Elijah will inevitably wonder, ‘Is there a connection between my brother and Hayley that I could never surpass?’” Narducci explained. “There’s going to be some interesting friction. Ultimately, Elijah is going to have to decide, ‘Do I want to help this girl?’”
KLAUS: THE EARLY YEARS | Season 2, Narducci explained, is “all about confronting the sins of the past. We’re very much defined by our parents, but as we become adults, we begin to choose our own paths. … Klaus is very much a product of his abusive father, and very much a product of his mother.” In going deeper into Klaus’ moral origins, we’ll see “flashbacks to when he was a child,” as well as “right before he became a vampire.” All of this will “examine what his relationship was with his mother, and the sense of betrayal that he felt when she came back from the dead and judged him as an abomination.”
WITCH’S CONFLICT | Davina’s agenda, Narducci explained, is going to unfold in an interesting way this fall: “She has Mikael under her control, and she wants Klaus to suffer — but she also loves Josh and Marcel, and she knows they’re connected to Klaus. She’s going to have to be smart about what she ultimately decides to do with Mikael.” As for which of Klaus and Elijah’s brothers Esther brought back with her, the EPs are remaining tight-lipped for now.
WHAT’S IN A NAME? | The explanation behind the season premiere’s title, “Rebirth,” is two-fold, according to Plec. Not only is it indicative of the episode’s theme — the loss of Klaus’ baby, the start of his new life, etc. — but it also has a special meaning for the show, itself. “Every title we use, we try to make it a song title from New Orleans or an artist from New Orleans,” Plec said. “Rebirth is one of the best brass bands in New Orleans, and they were in our pilot. We’ve been waiting to use that title for 22 episodes.”
The Originals‘ second season premieres Oct. 6 at 8/7c on The CW.
