Where Else Can I Watch The Originals Season 5 Online?

Well, there are a few places you can look. First is obviously to watch the series when it airs live on the CW after the Carrie special of Riverdale. Unfortunately, the CW doesn't air a lot of rerun episodes, so 9/8c is the only chance you have if you want to check out the show live.

Don't have cable and want to watch The Originals season 5 live stream? You can watch through Hulu Live TV, which will give you access to live streams online as well as Hulu's streaming library. This option is best if you really love being in the Hulu family and have the channel in your area.

You can also go to the CW's website or download the CW app, which will let you watch The Originals for free online. However, you'll only be able to watch the five most recent episodes because the CW eventually locks their content. Lucky for you, there are other options.

You can also choose to buy individual episodes or even the whole season online through iTunes, Vudu, or Amazon Video. Buying each episode is pretty self explanatory, but you can also buy the whole season now so that you won't miss a second of The Originals season 5 as each episode airs.

Happy watching!
