It's pretty much unheard of for a spinoff to get its own spinoff, but it looks like The Originals has achieved this highly unusual feat!

Unfortunately, we won't be able to look forward to a brand new show, but instead The Originals: The Rise will be available as part of an upcoming book series.

Before you worry about the beloved CW show being desecrated by some unknown hack, let me reassure you that the books have been penned by Julie Plec herself and is an official addition the [The Originals](series:833141) mythology.

The Rise is set way back in 1722 New Orleans where Klaus, Elijah and Rebekah Mikaelson have fled to escape their turbulent pasts. Unfortunately, they probably didn't choose the right place to run. New Orleans is a lawless nest of witches and werewolves that the Mikaelsons family bond will struggle to overcome.

The Rise is available in stores right now, but you better savor every word if you want to minimize your wait between the instalments. Book two, The Originals: The Loss will hit shelves on March 31 and book three, The Originals: The Resurrection, will be available on May 31.

Also, love how that cover picture of is totally giving me...

Great marketing, guys!
