Julie Plec and Michael Narducci share their inside scoops for The Originals 3×01 “For the Next Millenium”!

In The Originals Inside 3×01 “For the Next Millenium” Michael Narducci reveals the family is scattered as the story is picked up six months after the season 2 finale “Ashes to Ashes.”

On top of this, Klaus‘ original sire Lucien comes to town. Julie Plec reveals we’re going to go back about 900 years to meet the “feisty and funny” Lucien, and we’ll learn how the Mikaelsons transformed from Viking run away children to posh and well-to-do cultured people.

New Orleans is also under siege with murders and humans are “dropping like flies,” which brings Cami and Vincent into the scene to work with new human in town, Detective Will Kinney, played by Jason Dohring. Since humans don’t fare well in New Orleans, Julie Plec hints that we’ll see if he beats the odds! However, Jason is no stranger to fangs, having played Josef Kostan in Moonlight!

“For the Next Millennium” press release synopsis

A WAR BREWING BETWEEN THE SIRE LINES — Months following their violent and deadly showdown with the powerful witch Dahlia, a rift continues to divide brothers Klaus (Joseph Morgan) and Elijah (Daniel Gillies), while Freya (Riley Voekel) searches for a way to heal their fractured bond and return their family to the way they once were. Meanwhile, Klaus‘ suspicion piques when he learns that an old vampire friend named Lucien (guest star Andrew Lees) has arrived to New Orleans with a mysterious agenda involving the Mikaelson’s remaining sire lines. Elsewhere, Elijah questions whether he can truly forgive his brother for his mounting offenses, while Hayley (Phoebe Tonkin) struggles with being cursed to her wolf form in the bayou. In the French Quarter, Vincent (Yusuf Gatewood) and Cami (Leah Pipes) assist Detective Kinney (guest star Jason Dohring) after a series of gruesome discoveries are made, leading them to believe they may have a serial killer on the loose. Finally, Marcel (Charles Michael Davis), who has regained control of the French Quarter once again, tries a new strategy to recruit vampires, while Davina (Danielle Campbell), who is now Regent to the New Orleans witches, makes a decision that will find her and Marcel on opposite sides of an escalating conflict.
