Contains All 22 Episodes From The Second Season Plus

Never-Before-Seen Featurettes And Much More!

As Original vampire-werewolf hybrid Klaus Mikaelson returned to the vibrant, supernaturally charged city of New Orleans in season one, he was stunned to learn — along with his siblings Elijah and Rebekah — that Hayley, a werewolf, was pregnant with his child, and his vampire protégé, Marcel, whom the Original siblings had thought long dead, was ruling the French Quarter. Soon, a bloody war escalated between vampires and witches — the stakes raised by powerful teenage witch Davina and by Klaus’s bond with Cami, a student with a painful past — and a ruthless pack of wolves seized the opportunity to stage a violent coup. Now, in season two, a new status quo must be adjusted to, as the newly empowered werewolves control the city. Klaus struggles with weaknesses as Elijah desperately tries to save Hayley — now a hybrid — from a vicious spiral of self-destruction. Meanwhile, with the re-emergence of several Mikaelsons, “family is power” takes on new meaning.

The Originals: The Complete Second Season will be priced to own on DVD at $44.98 SRP and on Blu-ray at $49.99 SRP.

 While I have not yet finished Season 2 of The Originals, I am definitely loving this show! Dan is big into Vampires and Werewolves as well and he is even enjoying the show. I don't feel they over do their abilities or strength, there is a strong story line and great acting from all cast members. I would and have recommended this series to family and friends. I love that the first season is on Netflix, I am almost through the first season and will soon be switching over to this Blu-ray disc set to continue watching this awesome series. Before being introduced to the series with this review opportunity I had came across the first season on Netflix and I was tempted to start watching it, but I wasn't sure. I'm very leery on the Vampire series and movies I will watch after the sparkling vampires in the movie which I will not name here. I have been very pleased through out the first season and I will give an update once I've watched the full second season as well. Do you need to catch up too? You can do so here.
