‘The Vampire Diaries’ Season 4: Klaus Returns Home In Teaser For ‘The Originals’ Back-Door Pilot

The April 25th episode of The Vampire Diaries will serve as a back-door pilot for The Originals, a spin-off that if picked up would take original vampire Klaus and transplant him to his own New Orleans set series, and The CW has released an extended promo for the episode that gives fans their first taste of what a Klaus spin-off might be like it. The verdict? It certainly appears to have potential.

In the promo, Klaus finds Marcel (Charles Michael Davis), one of the many vampires he has sired, living the high life in the Big Easy. Klaus being Klaus he immediately wants what Marcel has. “I want to be king,” he says.
