The show will feature a time-jump of about five years when it returns on Friday and all the Mikaelsons will still be asleep. A lot would change in these years, and Hope would become an inquisitive seven-year-old who wants to know more about her family. And when the Mikaelson siblings finally wake up sometime in the first couple of episodes, they will unite to rescue Klaus, the brother who sacrificed himself so the others could survive.
Speaking to TVGuide about the Season 4 opener, The Originals executive producer Michael Narducci said the siblings will wake up pretty soon.
"I think the fans demand seeing their favorite characters. What we did was jump past all of those moments where they were out of the picture and now we're coming into the story to tell the story of what final steps can be taken in order to awaken that family. Once they are awoken, what are they going to do next to get their brother who remains in New Orleans. That's going to be part of the first chapter of our season," he said.
The Originals airs Fridays at 8 pm ET on The CW.
