We caught up with the cast of The CW’s The Originals — along with series creator Julie Plec — to talk about how they plan to end a series when it’s about characters who live forever. Turns out? Not so easy.

Plec, along with stars like Joseph Morgan and Riley Voelkel, opened up about what it has been like to play these characters for so long, and balancing the extremely long lifespan of these characters in crafting the eventual series finale. Plec said they’re essentially using the whole fifth and final season to bring the disparate pieces back together, heading toward a finale that wraps up the stories they’ve been telling the past several years.

Along with all the finale talk, the cast and crew also open up about what fans can expect from the final season when The Originals returns in 2018 on The CW.
