    A Ranking Of "The Originals" Characters, From Klaus Mikaelson To Davina Claire

    No one in this show stays dead and it gives me trust issues.

    While fans of The Vampire Diaries might wish for this franchise to live on always and forever, The CW has announced that Legacies, the latest installment set within the universe, will conclude on June 16.

    This finale marks the end of the Mikaelsons, a dysfunctional family of ancient vampires who span across all three TV shows in the franchise: The Vampire Diaries, The Originals, and Legacies.

    The episode is set to bring back Klaus Mikaelson, who is most notable in The Originals, the spin-off series centering around the world's oldest vamps as they reside in a supernatural community in modern-day New Orleans.
