The Originals (2013-2018)
At one point, the Original vampires, led by Klaus (Joseph Morgan), were one of the best things to happen to The Vampire Diaries, but they were stealing the spotlight of the tired Stefan, Damon, and Elena love triangle. So Klaus, Elijah (Daniel Gillies), Rebekah (Claire Holt), and others were shipped off to New Orleans for their own spin-off called The Originals.
Why It’s A Good Option For Vampire Fans: The Originals had a shorter life than The Vampire Diaries but it was a bit more mature than its parent series and explored more of the psyche behind the Originals characters and made Klaus actually a rootable hero instead of just a cool villain.
