Producer to Pen ‘The Originals’ Spinoff Books

First comes the book, then comes the movie. Sometimes first comes the book, then comes the TV show. But every once in a while, the TV show comes first, and then spinoff books are written. Such is the case with the CW’s The Originals.

According to Entertainment WeeklyThe Originals executive producer Julie Plec is currently working on three novels based on the TV series. To tell the 1,000-year history of the characters, Plec will pen three books in an Originals trilogy: The Originals: The Rise, The Originals: The Loss, and The Originals: The Resurrection. The books are due to be released in February, April and June, 2015.

The TV show itself is already a spinoff of the CW’s biggest hit show in years, The Vampire Diaries. Now in its second season, The Originals tells the story of the original siblings returning to New Orleans for the first time since the early 1900s.
