'The Originals' Season 4 Finale May See 10-Year Time Jump

After the release of the casting call for an older Hope, there are now questions over a potential time jump for The Originals Season 4 finale. Fans believe there will be a time jump for the fifth season, and it could be as much as 10 years. The CW and Julie Plec are still to confirm these rumors, but the evidence for them is stacking up.

TV Line reports that the potential 10-year time jump could take place in The Originals Season 4 finale. The publication also goes on to suggest that the time jump is opening the possibility of a third spinoff within The Vampire Diaries universe. Plec has certainly made it clear that she is interested in another spinoff happening.

Most theories in a future spinoff series involve Alaric and Caroline's school for witches. Fans believe that Hope Mikaelson will move to Mystic Falls to help focus and train her powers. Plec has already confirmed the witch will go there, but never said when that would be. It would make sense for a flash forward to see her enhance and control her powers and make it easier to film around child labor laws in the United States.
