The beloved vampire fantasy show ran eight seasons long, obtained a spin-off for Klaus’ clan (The Originals), got an additional spin-off (Legacies), and was then declared to wrap up. But of course, lovers of the Salvatore brothers would not have this.
The series follows Elena, a teen who just dropped her parents, and her struggles with high school, her witch friend, her werewolf buddy, her cursed brother, and history instructor, and her vampire boyfriend Stefan; along with her next boyfriend- vampire brother Damon. Yep, it’s a great deal for one show. It’s just plain addictive, although it feels like it may be confusing.
What Are The Chances?
The series was canceled and had aired its 8th and final season three season in 2017. Moreover, the show’s creator, Julie Plec, revealed that she thought that the show had run its course and come to a natural end.
Nina Dobrev, who plays Elena- the character the show has mostly revolved around, quit the show in a year, appearing for one episode in the finale. It seems unlikely that she’d take on her part in the show again.
Ian Somerhalder that performs Damon (another primary character) has also emphasized a few times in the previous two season he is past the Vampire Diaries phase of his life and wishes to move on to other endeavors.
Any rumors regarding the revival of the show haven’t been addressed- There has not been any statements or even traces of a new season. Rumors fly wild, but we are afraid they may be just that- rumors. We’d LOVE another period of the show- or even five. But nobody from the cast and crew has shown any enthusiasm for the same.
It’s the pandemic holding the statements back; perhaps there will not be another season. We should get a clearer idea of the same towards the end of the season – because rumor has it that if there’s to be a ninth season, it will air on The CW at 2021.
