If she ends this show, we’ll suck the blood outta her!! Vampire Diaries co-creator Julie Plec has said she already has an idea on how the show will come to an end… before reassuring fans that the show could last for at least another seven season. Phew – this woman nearly had us mooning our butts to people in frustration, but luckily we don’t have to do that anymore. Ha!
The teen-favorite show is the biggest show theCW has ever had on the network — week to week, the ratings surpass 3 million viewers and at every awards show, the VD stars always take something home. So, we’ve established the show is great, popular and has some serious eye-candy (such as Caroline Forbes’ mother… she’s so hot!). But, what does the future actually hold for a show that happens to be so interesting, because as we all know, a show can’t stay “hot” forever.
Julie explained: “[Co-exec] Kevin Williamson and I, early in season 2 in fact, came up with the way we see the series ending,” she confirmed. “I think the question in a show like The Vampire Diaries is really how Damon, Elena, and Stefan’s journey ends. We know how we want Elena’s journey to end as it relates to both her character and her relationship with the two brothers, and how we want the brothers’ relationship with each other to end.”
Speaking on when the show could come to an end… Julie truly believes that VD can continue for at least another SEVEN seasons, and the reason to this is because she and her team who work on the production and scripts are so advanced with developing ideas on story lines and characters. But most importantly, she realizes that if one of the main actors wants to leave the show, she has to respect their wishes and perhaps finally close the curtains.
“That [series finale] could come in year 6, if [the actors] decided they were ready to move on, or it could come in year 10, you never know,” she speculated. Plec is currently working on the spin-off show that will see Klaus and Elijah reunite with their family in The Originals.
