It’s a major evolution for the series, and while at San Diego’s 2011 Comic-Con International, we were able to speak with showrunner and executive producer Julie Plec about the secrets of Season Three and what to expect in the fall.

Sommers Network: The CW, airs Thursday nights Original Telecast: May 5th, 2010 There’s one more episode of THE VAMPIRE DIARIES, but this really felt like a season finale to me. The writers are going the way of BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER season four, and the last episode will probably be a resolution episode from all of the fallout of this season. “The Sun Also Rises” is a well-crafted episode that […]Read On »

Miller Tobin Network: The CW, airs Thursday nights Original Telecast: April 28th, 2010 The latest episode of THE VAMPIRE DIARIES has such a CRASH, BOOM, BANG ending I was blown away with the amount of danger they could put almost every character in. “The Last Day” doesn’t even bother with getting up a head of steam as it races the series and the characters towards the inevitable confrontation with Klauss (Joseph […]Read On »
