Salvatore brothers to come back for another season? Here’s what we know
Ever since the fan favourite Vampire Diaries released its season 8, there has been anticipation amongst the fans regarding the next season with fresh drama. Even after 3 years after its release they haven’t let up the hope that the makers would surprise them with a new season. So, is it true? Are our favourite vampires coming back for season 9?
This is an American teen drama, featuring supernatural creatures such as vampires, werewolves, and witches. The entire series is based on the L.J. Smith “The Vampire Diaries”. Julie Plec and Kevin Williamson developed it for the CW Network.
The series is set in the fictional city of Mystic Falls, Virginia, a city steeped in supernatural history. It follows the life of Elena Gilbert (Nina Dobrev), a teenager who just lost her parents in a car accident. She falls in love with a 162-year-old vampire named Steven Salvador (Paul Wesley). With the return of Stefan’s mysterious brother, Damon Salvatore (Ian Somerhalder), their relationship has become increasingly complicated, as Damon tries to bring back his ex-lover Katherine Pierce (also played by Dobrev), a vampire who looks exactly like Elena.
Although Damon initially held a grudge against his brother for forcing him to become a vampire, he later reconciled with Stefan and fell in love with Elena, forming a love triangle between the three of them. Both brothers tried to protect Elena because they faced various villains and threats in the city, including Catherine. As the series progresses, the story of the brothers and the myth of the town will be revealed through flashbacks.
TVD was originally released on September 10, 2009 and continued until March 10, 2017. It ran for 8 seasons, including two spin-off shows, The Originals and Legacies.
So, another season?
TVD coming back for another season is highly unlikely. The show already covered all of its loopholes in the last season and all the characters are now happily living. Creators have confirmed that the series won’t be elongated beyond necessity.
What does the cast have to say?
The members of the cast have never shied away from expressing their love for the series, constantly sharing throwbacks from the show. Nina Dobrev, the main lead of the show, is often seen sharing behind the scenes pictures from the show, reminiscing about the old days. But when asked about playing their roles again, both her and Ian Somerhalder, who plays Damon, have said that they no longer wished to play their roles more.
Nina straight up refused to play her role for season 9, even if it did get reprised while Julie Plec said that she won’t work for the series again. She clarified that the last season was so amazing in concluding the story of TVD that she couldn’t possibly imagine anything more to be added to it.
After these statements there hardly seems any chances of TVD coming back again but don’t worry! The series is always worth the rewatch!
