It looks like The CW's The Originals might just be achieving cult television status as it was announced yesterday that the show will be getting its own book series.
The Vampire Diaries spin-off received much recognition during the second half of its first season, even earning one of the CW network's only two Emmy nominations this year.
USA Today announced Monday that Harlequin has made a three-book deal with The CW to adapt the show.
Release dates for the books are scheduled during the series' second season on The CW in 2015, with the first book being released in February and the second in April. The third will come out in June, which will likely coincide with the season's finale.
The books will be written by Josh Bank and Hayley Wagreich and will not just be novel versions of the seasons, but rather all-new adventures.
Coincidentally, The Vampire Diaries, on which the series is based, came from a book series by L.J. Smith. Based on current reports, Smith seems to have no involvement with The Originals book deal.
Filming continues for season two of the Mikaelson family saga, though it will break later this month for the cast and crew to go to San Diego for Comic Con. Producer Julie Plec informed fans early this morning that she had been doing "homework" for The Originals the evening before, assuring fans that she series will be ready for its upcoming premiere.
The Originals returns to The CW for a second season on a new night Monday, October 6th at 8 p.m. ET/PT.
