Back on April 25, 2013 there was a special episode of the Vampire Diaries called The Originals. It was referred to as a backdoor pilot for a new series of the same name. Now we know for sure that the TV series The Originals is a go and will be premiering on October 3, 2013. The Originals is a U.S. show which airs on the CW Network. Unfortunately, we do not get the CW Channel in Canada. Usually, one of the Canadian networks pick up the CW shows so that they can be watched in Canada. The Originals episode of The Vampire Diaries aired on CTV in April but a quick look at the CTV Fall 2013 schedule and it is easy to see that The Originals is not on it. That begs the question what Canadian TV channel will be airing The Originals series? As of right now the only Canadian network scheduled to show the Originals is Hamilton’s CHCH. Check with your cable provider to see if they carry CHCH. Plus, some of the U.S. Superstation channels like WGN or WSBK also show CW shows and will be airing The Originals. If you have either of these channels you can also watch The Originals in Canada. Canadians can watch episodes of The Originals online by downloading them at iTunes Canada. Details here: The Originals, Season 1.
In Canada new episodes of The Originals air Thursday nights (starting Oct 3) at 8 pm et on CHCH. Here is the preview for The Originals TV show. CHCH does not stream any episodes on their website like most other networks. However, video clips and interviews from The Originals can be watched online from the CW Network YouTube Channel.
