Welcome back to Humor Nation. The success of TVD led to the birth of the Originals. There’s no denying that both shows have a dedicated fanbase who continuously express themselves on the internet and list the reasons as to why their show is the best. Originals and The Vampire Diaries are set in the Universe, they share many same characters, but both of these shows are completely different. TVD is more of a teen drama which focused on the story of two brothers who fall in love with the same over and over. This show introduced us to the world of supernatural which included vampires, werewolves, witches, hybrids. The show is not a slow burn at all and featured numerous story-lines running together.
In Second season of TVD, we were introduced to the Originals, the progenitor of the vampire race, all vampires came from them. We first saw Elijah, then Klaus, and then we got to see Rebekah, Kol, and Finn. The Originals popularity gave Julie Plec the idea to create a spin-off and the network went along with it. The spin-off focused on the Mikaelsons coming together to fight as a family again to protect Hayley and the unborn heir of the Mikaelsons.
While the Vampire Diaries showed us witches, vampires, sirens, werewolves, doppelgangers, hybrids, ghosts, and other supernatural creatures from the lore. But the Originals only focused on witches, werewolves, and vampires as the three factions working with and against each other through out the five seasons. The Originals did expand on the werewolf species, displayed their culture, expanded on the idea of alpha, werewolf community, ceremonies, spells, and rituals.
Speaking of similarities, it’s hard to not compare the characters of Caroline and Camille. Both were the love interests of Klaus Mikaelson. The big difference between the two was Caroline was an insecure, self absorbed girl who after becoming a vampire went through a drastic character development and became selfless, mature, and kind. Whereas Cami was already a kind and mature character as human, but turning into a vampire affected her personality. Even though Cami tried distancing Klaus from her, but he still kept loving her.
