The only reason I am not watching it is because of the description..
It's a spin off to The Vampire Dairies. And there is already another spin off to The Originals & The Vampire Dairies, titled Legacies.
You should try it.It's way better than tvd as it has more darker shade.Tvd is more of a teen love story.To me Niklaus Mikaelson is the best vampire character ever among all tv series and movies.
Well about Legacies it's more of a kids show than teen lol.
