It was developed by ‘Dawson’s Creek’ creator Kevin Williamson and Julie Plec,’The Vampire Diaries’ first release on The CW on September 10, 2009. It’s based on the bestselling book series of the same name by L.J. Smith. Set in the scenic but charming town of Mystic Falls, the long-running series focuses on the teen, Elena Gilbert (Nina Dobrev), that gets caught up in a complicated love triangle with vampire Salvatore brothers Stefan (Paul Wesley) and Damon (Ian Somerhalder).
Together with the town’s other human – and not so human -populations,’The Vampire Diaries’ spawned not one but two spin-offs -‘The Originals’ and legacies,’ and developed a stalwart fan base over its eight seasons on the air. The eighth season of The CW supernatural adolescent play proved over three decades ago, but will the fans get to dive into the Vampire Diaries’ season 9? Here’s everything we know.
The Vampire Diaries Season 9 Release Date
‘The Vampire Diaries’ season 8 released on October 21, 2016, on The CW, and finished its run on March 10, 2017, after airing eight episodes.
So far as season nine is concerned, sadly, only a couple of months after The CW renewed the series for its eighth season, showrunner Julie Plec announced the eighth season of ‘The Vampire Diaries’ would be it’s last. So, as of now, ‘The Vampire Diaries’ season nine stands. Fans may be disappointed. However, the knowledge that season 8 is the show’s last season allowed its makers to craft the previous edition that tied up loose ends and bid a proper farewell to its characters.
The Vampire Diaries Cast
Ian Somerhalder has stated several times he feels the Vampire Diaries’ chapter of his career is closed. Additionally, seeing as Nina Dobrev already left the series in season 6 and returned to the finale, it does not seem likely she’d be interested in filming a ninth season. Kevin Williamson has moved on to new things with the CBS anthology thriller series ‘Tell Me a Story’ while Julie Plec is currently working on Vampire Diaries‘ spin-off legacies’ and Roswell, New Mexico.’ With enough on their plates already, it doesn’t look like another season would fit in their schedules.
However, if the makers decide to return to the story, they might steer it differently with a reboot. In the same veins as the gossip Girl’ reboot, it is possible that ‘The Vampire Diaries’ may return with a fresh pair of characters later on. We know the fans would certainly like to believe so and have their fingers crossed.
The Vampire Diaries Plot
Since the show’s wrap up back in 2017, there have been myriads of rumors flying about speculating as soon as the series is returning to get a brand-new season. Still, we can affirm any news about the resurrection has been formally accepted nor denied by the producers. Naturally, fans need more adventures of their Salvatore brothers at the familiar Mystic Falls.
The show enjoyed a good run, along with the season 8 finale wrapped up most of its unresolved storylines well in an epic episode which includes some notable character deaths and happy endings. Despite its satisfyingly resolute conclusion, fans of this series still hope another setup may be on the cards, but could ‘The Vampire Diaries’ season nine happen?
If ‘The Vampire Diaries’ actually comes right into a revival, it might follow characters other than Elena, Damon, Stefan, and the rest of Mystic Falls, as their story has already come full circle. Luckily, fellow spin-off legacies’ is still on the air and can be brimmed with enough ‘The Vampire Diaries’ easter eggs to meet with the vampire-shaped hole at almost any fan’s life.
