"The Originals" is a spin off series of the hit TV show "The Vampire Diaries." It follows the adventures of character Klaus Mikaelson as he and his family get involved in the supernatural politics in New Orleans. The show was created by Julie Plec who also created "The Vampire Diaries." The first season of the series premiered back in 2013 and immediately gained a cult following. The series has been running since then and has recently confirmed that its next season, season 5, will, in fact, be the final season of the show. The trailer for season 5 of "The Originals" was recently released at the San Diego Comic Convention.

The trailer shows a teenage Hope

The trailer for season 5 of "The Originals" was recently screened at the San Diego Comic Convention. The trailer revealed to fans what they could expect from the fifth and final season of the show. According to Deadline, it also gives a glimpse of the grown up teenage Hope. Her character narrates the trailer and begins to talk about the things people love being corrupted by evil.

The daughter of Klaus then states that she will protect her family legacy even if it kills her. It will certainly be interesting to see the direction the show takes in season 5 of the show. Now that the character of Hope is a teenager it opens up much more room in the plot for the exploration of issues surrounding the use of her abilities.
