reported that The Originals will -finally!- be coming to Netflix;

The full list of what’s new on Netflix in July 2017 including Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, Pretty Little Liars season 7, Castlevania, and more!

Netflix announced the full list of what’s new on Netflix in July 2017, and there is good news. There are some awesome new movies and shows coming to the streaming service next month including Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, Pretty Little Liars season 7, Castlevania, and more!

May and June were two of the best months for TV and movies in Netflix history, so it’s going to be hard to top them in July, but I think this list of new additions has a chance.

Rogue One, which is the latest Disney movie to be released on Netflix, is the first Star Wars movie to hit the streaming service in the United States. The film stars Felicity Jones and Diego Luna, and it’s scheduled to be released on Netflix on July 18.

Oscar-nominated film Lion starring Dev Patel is also coming to the streaming service next month, along with several major movies that had been streaming on Netflix like E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial, Titanic, Matchstick Men, Best in Show, and more!

While May and June on Netflix yielded new seasons of great Netflix originals like House of Cards, Bloodline, and Orange is the New Black, July should have some great Netflix as well. New Netflix original series Castlevania, Friends From College, and Ozark are scheduled to premiere in consecutive weeks, respectively, starting on July 7 through July 21.

And, that’s not all for the TV shows coming to Netflix next month! New seasons of iZombie, Pretty Little Liars, The Originals, and more great shows are coming to the streaming service in July.

The Originals can be found on Netflix starting July 1st!

The Vampire Diaries, Ian Somerhalder and The Originals’ Joseph Morgan have been nominated for a Teen Choice Award presented by FOX. Be sure to vote for them here!

The season finale of The Originals’ fourth season airs this upcoming Friday on The CW. Here’s the official description and the preview;

THE END OF ALWAYS AND FOREVER – In an explosive season finale, the Mikaelsons find themselves out of options as they face the all-powerful and un-killable entity known as The Hollow. With the life of Hope (guest star Summer Fontana) at stake, Vincent (Yusuf Gatewood) proposes a final, desperate plan – one that will force Klaus (Joseph Morgan), Elijah (Daniel Gillies), Hayley (Phoebe Tonkin), Rebekah (guest star Claire Holt) and Freya (Riley Voelkel) to make the greatest sacrifice their family has ever endured. Charles Michael Davis also stars.

If you’re a big fan of xXx: Return of Xander Cage, then you’re in luck, because there’s going to be another installment coming your way with all of the cast!

On Sunday (June 11), D.J. Caruso, the director of the 2017 film, took to Twitter to tease that the next installment of the xXx trilogy — which stars Vin Diesel in the title role — will feature Nina Dobrev, Deepika Padukone and more Xander Cage alums.

The announcement came after Ruby Rose, who played Adele Wolf in xXx: Return of Xander Cage, posted a teaser message on Instagram on Friday hinting at her involvement in the upcoming movie.

“And while I’m here I can’t forget my training for Adele in xXx… but… more new exciting news on that soon ;),” Rose captioned a picture of herself hanging out with giant weapons in the desert.

A fan then asked Caruso on Twitter whether or not this meant fans would soon be getting an update on another film from the franchise. Caruso replied, “Yes meetings next week. Honing in on story and start dates.”

To make fans even more happy Caruso shared a few more details. On Twitter user asked specifically about Nina Dobrev coming back for the sequel, and the director quickly replied, “oh yes.”

Another fan wrote, “Hey sir, What’s the movie’s title? and did you replace any co-star in the sequel or that all are brought back?”

While Caruso didn’t share the movie’s title, he did make all of our movie dreams come true by addressing the casting question. “All coming back,” he wrote keeping it short, but sweet.

This means Diesel, Dobrev, Rose, Padukone, Kris Wu and more are all going to be coming back for more action, assuming they are all available for filming.

Diesel previously told Variety that Paramount was looking to make a fourth installment in the franchise.

“Well, it’s funny. I was in the middle of an interview and Brad Grey — who runs Paramount — calls me and says, ‘Will everybody come back to work in May?’ I’m like – everyone’s in interviews right now!” Diesel told Variety back in January.

And while I'm here I can't forget my training for Adele in xXx… but… more new exciting news on that soon 😉

A day after the presidential election, a writer on “The Originals” turned in a script that featured a female character getting beat up by a man.

There were reasons for this: It was a memory — a flashback to centuries earlier. They were wearing period garb. “The Originals” is a supernatural show, and yes, demons can be awful, even the ones searching for redemption.

“But he beat her up,” said executive producer Julie Plec. “We realized at that moment they can’t be together anymore. And we killed a love story on that day. One that people who watch the show are probably rooting for. Narratively we were going down this path, but my conscience can’t advocate that kind of violence.”

A lot of things changed for storytellers in light of a Donald Trump presidency, but the depiction of females — and violence against women — especially became more relevant for filmmakers and showrunners in light of what had just happened. Plec was one of several producers discussing the impact of Trump on TV at an ATX Television Festival panel.

“If the day-to-day culture is saying it’s OK to not be inclusive or tolerant, that it’s OK to be bigoted, then it’s your responsibility to double down and make it OK in storytelling to be inclusive and tolerant,” Plec said. “The weight of that is always hanging, but in a good way.”

Plec noted that Hulu’s “The Handmaid’s Tale,” about a post-United States society where women are completely oppressed, took on a much more urgent meaning once Trump was elected.

“I watch it and think, if Hillary [Clinton] were president, this would be a very entertaining and intelligent show,” she said. “Donald Trump is president, and I want to vomit. It’s so harrowing in the context of the reality we live in. The speculative fiction feels so presently of today in a way that it absolutely wouldn’t have if Hillary were president.”

Similarly, Plec last season was developing The CW pilot “Rise,” about a homegrown coup, in which a Clinton or Obama-like president is overthrown and replaced by a somewhat fascist leader.

“When we were developing in a Hillary future it was smart, riveting fun entertainment,” Plec said. “When the election happened it suddenly felt too close to home, uncomfortable, too political. In the span of two weeks, we went from high priority at the network to not getting ordered at all. Nobody said it was because Trump is president. The ripple effect of the content was instant… Instead of it feeling delicious and a speculative fiction adventure, it felt preachy and too political for some.”

Beau Willimon (“House of Cards”) said his new series, Hulu’s futuristic Mars drama “The First,” was conceived in a very different climate. “It takes place 15 years in the future, and you have to speculate what the world will look like 15, 20 years from now. Prior to November 8, 2016, what that world looked like was perhaps a lot different.”

As for “The Originals,” Plec explained that the villain in question is a character who is constantly battling the fight between trying to be the most moral upstanding creature and yet has a very deep, dark place borne out of being a creature of the night for thousands of years, and has worked so hard to overcome it.”

But in an episode that just aired, “his subconscious took control over his consciousness and he exposed that really dark side.” Female characters trying to help tame the bad boy is a staple of romance stories, but Plec noted, “in the context of the election, and all of us as women being particularly put off by what we saw as a misogyny, a sexism and a bullying that we watched on live TV, it just felt like that old chestnut was suddenly uncomfortable.”

On “The Originals,” she added, “we had witnessed was a woman getting beaten up by a man that we loved. We just drew a line for ourselves not to demonize the character who did it, and yet not to make excuses for it either… There are a lot of things you do in a supernatural universe that can toe the line and cross the line. This moment in time and this feeling that we had, we just felt dirty. And we wanted to do something about it.”

Plec said the Trump victory awakened her to embracing and mobilizing more powerful depictions of women. “It just felt like such a defeat for women,” Plec said of Trump’s win. “And I had to mourn that just as other women I know, politics be damned.”


The Originals’ fourth season is coming to a close and TV Line says that its fifth season could set the doors open for another spinoff;

Warning: This article contains a major spoiler from The Originals‘ upcoming fourth season finale. Proceed at your own risk!

Hope Mikaelson is about to hit another growth spurt.
Though neither The CW nor Warner Bros. TV are commenting, sources confirm to TVLine that The Originals is bracing for a significant time jump, setting the stage for a much older Hope — think late teens — to be introduced in Season 5. The time jump could arrive as soon as the June 23 season finale (The CW, 8/7c); casting for the “new” role, currently being portrayed by the phenomenal Summer Fontana, is now underway.

We also hear there’s potential for adult Hope to snag her own spinoff, though neither The CW nor Warner Bros. TV would comment on that either. Of course, if Hope does end up at the center of a third series in the Vampire Diaries universe, it would be sort of like a prophecy coming to fruition — albeit one foretold by executive producer Julie Plec.
“I think there are future shows down the line that can be spawned out of this world and could tell good stories,” Plec told TVLine back in March while discussing the letter Klaus sent to Caroline in the series finale of The Vampire Diaries. “It’s a hope for the future if nothing else.”

As for what else the future might hold for Hope, Plec reminded TVLine that “the idea of [Caroline and Alaric’s] school as a safe haven for young supernatural beings certainly has a lot of relevance for Hope,” leading many viewers — including the one currently typing this — to believe that Hope will relocate from New Orleans to Mystic Falls by the end of the season.

Anything for next season of The Originals? — Nelson
By now you’ve heard that The Originals is looking to do yet another time jump that would age up Hope next season. Well, I hear that aging comes with some new perks in the form of a love interest. The show is currently casting for a devilishly charming, recently-turned vampire named Roman, who finds a common bond with Hope over their dysfunctional families.


The Originals’ 4×12: “Voodoo Child” airs June 16th on The CW

THE BOOK OF THE HOLLOW – When The Hollow targets the most vulnerable Mikaelson, Klaus (Joseph Morgan) is forced to rely on Vincent (Yusuf Gatewood), who believes he can use The Hollow’s own dark magic to defeat their enemy for good. Meanwhile, as Marcel (Charles Michael Davis) worries that Vincent’s plan might backfire, the King of New Orleans decides on a deadly backup plan of his own. Elsewhere, after falling victim to The Hollow’s manipulations, Hayley (Phoebe Tonkin) struggles to figure out Hope’s (guest star Summer Fontana) future in New Orleans, while Freya (Riley Voelkel) must confront her darkest fear.
