TV Line exclusively reports that "The Originals" is bracing for a time jump that will make Hope's character age from a child to a woman in her late teens. According to its sources, the teenage Hope is expected to be introduced in "The Originals" Season 5. The time jump could even happen on the show's Season 4 finale.

Aside from this, there's also the possibility of a spinoff featuring the adult Hope. However, Warner Bros. TV and The CW have not confirmed this yet. Casting for the role of the older Hope is reportedly underway.

Series creator Julie Plec also talked about "The Vampire Diaries" ("TVD") Alaric "Ric" Saltzman (Matthew Davis) and Caroline Forbes' (Candice Accola-King) school and its relevance for Hope. Caroline and Alaric's school was set up for young supernatural beings, and it's possible that Hope could study there.

Meanwhile, Summer Fontana, the current actress playing Hope in the show, briefly tweeted about it. She said that she's unable to comment about Season 5 at this time. Check out her tweet at the end of the article.
