The Originals Season 4 Air Date
The Originals Season 3 finale had fans applauding as Klaus Mikaelson (Joseph Morgan) became a salvation for Elijah (Daniel Gillies), Kol (Nathaniel Buzolic), and Freya (Riley Voelkel) after a history of badness. However, the heroic Klaus may actually be short-lived...
In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, producer Michael Narducci dissected the magnitude of the sacrifice Klaus Mikaelson made for his family, but because of his sacrifice Klaus Mikaelson has became trapped in immense pain. Worse than the Tunde Blade, however, according to Michael Narducci is the isolation forced on Klaus who had always been depicted as distinctly family-oriented, even in all his twisted betrayals.
Narducci also confirmed a time jump,saying, "We are going to have a little bit of a time jump in between when the story ends at the end of the finale and when we pick up in Season 4. That experience in the time jump will be similar to what the audience is feeling. To me, in a way, it actually makes sense."
The Originals season 4 is set to air in January 2017. The delay in the premiere is intended to take advantage of the winter hiatus.
