'The Originals' is launching a Kol-centric web series
Klaus and Elijah Mikaelson might be the best-known Originals, but their siblings have just as much baggage—even the youngest brother, Kol. And now there’s a web series to prove it.
EW has confirmed that The CW is launching a four-part digital series titled The Originals: Awakening, which will focus on Kol’s story. According to E! News, the story will take viewers back to 1914, when Kol was attempting to form an alliance with the witches of the French Quarter. As Originals writer Carina MacKenzie told E!, “In the web series, fans will get to see how some events of last season can actually be traced back to Kol, and we’ll reveal some clues as to his current agenda with Davina.”
The web series will star Nathaniel Buzolic as Kol, who’s currently being played by Daniel Sharman on the show.
The Originals: Awakening will premiere on Monday, Nov. 10 on cwtv.com during the East Coast airing of The Originals, with new episodes each Monday until the mid-season finale of the show on Dec. 8.
The Originals airs Mondays at 8 p.m. on The CW.
Joseph Morgan and Daniel Gillies star as Klaus and Elijah Mikaelson in this Vampire Dairies spin-off about the first family of vampires, their life in New Orleans, and the witches and werewolves who live there.
