The Originals: The Complete Second Season- get caught up before the new season starts! #ad

Ready to feast on this? Just in time for the season three premiere on The CW, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment will release The Originals: The Complete Second Season on Blu-rayTM and DVD.  Season Two is also available to purchase on Digital HD. Averaging nearly 2.2 million viewers weekly, The Originals is one of The CW’s top shows this season.*  Fans can get sucked in all over again on all 22 one-hour episodes from season two, plus over an hour of gripping extras — including the 2014 Comic-Con panel, featurettes, behind the scenes, deleted scenes, and a gag reel. 

As Original vampire-werewolf hybrid Klaus Mikaelson returned to the vibrant, supernaturally charged city of New Orleans in season one, he was stunned to learn — along with his siblings Elijah and Rebekah — that Hayley, a werewolf, was pregnant with his child, and his vampire protégé, Marcel, whom the Original siblings had thought long dead, was ruling the French Quarter. Soon, a bloody war escalated between vampires and witches — the stakes raised by powerful teenage witch Davina and by Klaus’s bond with Cami, a student with a painful past — and a ruthless pack of wolves seized the opportunity to stage a violent coup. Now, in season two, a new status quo must be adjusted to, as the newly empowered werewolves control the city. Klaus struggles with weaknesses as Elijah desperately tries to save Hayley — now a hybrid — from a vicious spiral of self-destruction. Meanwhile, with the re-emergence of several Mikaelsons, “family is power” takes on new meaning.




With Blu-ray’s unsurpassed picture and sound, The Originals: The Complete Second Season Blu-ray release will include 1080p Full HD Video with DTS-HD Master Audio for English 5.1. The 3-disc Blu-ray will feature a high-definition Blu-ray and a Digital HD copy of all 22 episodes from Season Two.

Created by Plec, the series is based in part on the character Klaus from The Vampire Diaries novels by L.J. Smith. The Originals will continue for a third season on The CW in fall 2015.

 Fans of The Vampire Diaries should be quiet familiar with some of the cast of The OriginalsThe Originals started their story line on The Vampire Diaries, they are the first in the long line of vampires.  A little backstory, their mother (a witch) turned her children and spouse in order to protect them.  In doing so, she created the first vampire clan and this clan can not be killed in the same ways normal vampires can!  They are the most powerful and most vampires fear them, loathe them and know their place around them.

The main "Original" is Klaus, he is ruthless! He is brutal and will stop at nothing or let anyone get in the way of his agenda.  He is now a father and that even puts him on high alert, he will not stop protecting his daughter (Hope) and keeping her safe. Baby Hope is a Hybrid and inherited her werewolf gene from both of her parents while her vampire and witch legacy came from her father who is the first Vampire-Werewolf Hybrid and the son of the Original Witch. Since Hope comes from such greatness, she is sought after often and must be protected!

This season also brought back "deceased" members of the family. So of course the introduction of family adds to the dynamics.  Getting "reborn" is not easy and some of these members cause a lot of conflicts.

If you are looking for a great series to watch or just want to get caught up, this is the perfect time to tune into The Originals!
