“The Originals” Season 5 won’t premiere until next year, but fans are already getting some details on what to expect in the new season — or more accurately, who to expect. It seems the eight-year time jump means that the Mikaelsons will have lots of new friends and enemies. While the incoming cast members have not been announced, several descriptions of the new characters have been released.

Margot: Another sexy vampire is coming to New Orleans. Margot is described as “calculating” and an accomplished vamp, according to TVLine. She has a history that goes back to 1920s Europe, and it seems like Margot will have a few things in common with Klaus (Joseph Morgan) and his siblings. She has an “almost zealous devotion to her family.”

Declan: At San Diego Comic-Con, showrunner Julie Plec told Entertainment Weekly that there will be the new man in Hayley’s (Phoebe Tonkin) life in “The Originals” Season 5. “Hayley’s got a friend with benefits,” Plec revealed. “Hayley’s getting some.”

Thanks to TVLine, we have a little more information. Declan is a charming flirt but he also has a red hot temper. Perhaps that’s why Hayley knows she can’t keep secrets from him for long. Though he has no knowledge of the supernatural side of New Orleans when he meets Hayley, Declan will be introduced to the Original family “by the woman he loves.” That description makes it sound like Hayley and Declan are a lot more than friends with benefits.

Roman: Plec revealed that Hope (who will be played by teenager Danielle Rose Russell in Season 5) will get a love interest. A special boy will catch her eye while she’s at the Salvatore Boarding School for the Young and Gifted. He recently became a vampire and he’s very charming. He and Hope will bond over their messed up families, according to EW.

Antoinette: It isn’t clear if this vampire is friend or foe yet. Knowing the Mikaelsons’ complex relationships, she could be a little of both. Antoinette is a free-spirit but also an “old-school vampire.” Like most of the Originals, she’s charming and intelligent, and she uses that to hide her dark past. Could this be one of Margot’s family members?

“The Originals” Season 5 is currently filming in Atlanta, and there are sure to be more new characters revealed as filming continues. While the premiere might introduce some of these new faces, it will actually bring back a familiar vampire: Caroline Forbes-Salvatore (Candice King). King was already photographed on set thanks to writer Carina MacKenzie.

King will reprise the role she played for eight seasons on “The Vampire Diaries.” She is running Hope’s new school, and it seems the perky vampire hasn’t changed too much. Plec revealed at SDCC that Caroline will tell Klaus to get over himself, something the Original vampire probably needs to hear. What isn’t clear yet is what Caroline’s relationship with Hope will be like. Caroline runs the school that Klaus’ daughter has been attending, but fans will have to wait and see if the Mystic Falls native has grown close to Klaus’ daughter.

“The Originals” Season 5 premieres in 2018 on The CW. An exact premiere date has not been announced.
