Back in 2017, Julie Plec mentioned in an interview that season 8 will be the end of ‘The Vampire Diaries’. Well, guess what? There is finally an affirmation about the renewal of the show for season 9.
It’s been 3 years since season 8 of ‘The Vampire Diaries‘ hit the screens. The popularity of the show and the success of all the past seasons riled up interest for season 9, and fans are enthusiastically hanging tight for positive news. ‘The Vampire Diaries’ Season 9 was supposed to hit the screens in March this year but that never happened and the news was excused as a bogus gossip.
- Which actors will be seen on TWD again?
- The possible plotline for season 9
- When will season 9 hit the screens?
Luckily, some insiders just claimed that Kevin Williamson and Julie Plec will indeed be directing season 9.
Which actors will be seen on TWD again?
Even though the main characters of the show- Ian Somerhalder as Damon Salvatore, Nina Dobrev as Elena Gilbert, and Paul Wesley as Stefan Salvatore, separately refused to come back to the show, Julie Plec clarified that these are bits of gossip.
She dismissed the titbits by saying that there won’t be any side projects or spin-offs and the main series will continue.
Plec said in an interview, “I got something up my sleeve, but it’s not other side-y. That one’s gone for good. Something good is coming”.
So, the trio will most definitely return for the upcoming season despite all the rumours in the air alongside Kat Graham returning as Bonnie Bennett, Zach Roerig as Matt Donovan, Kristen Gutoskie as Seline, Demetrius Bridges as Dorian Williams, and various other actors along with some new ones.
Possible plotline for season 9
Season 9 will pick up from where the last season left us. For the time being, what we know is that Bonnie and Damon will encounter some significant changes in their lives. As we saw toward the end of season 8, Elena began to experience passionate feelings for Damon all over again, so we might have some hot and steamy scenes showing up there.
Furthermore, we will also get to see the reaction of all the characters in response to Damon’s and Elena’s decision, which will be a seriously intriguing clash to watch.
The show always has something new and distinctive to offer in each season and has never failed to wow the viewers so, the best we can do right now is to wait patiently and keep our fingers crossed for an official announcement!
When would season 9 hit the screens?
Any gossip concerning the restoration of the show hasn’t been tended to by the developers and creators and there haven’t been any official declarations.
Although, bits of gossip are flying wild as Plec was seen responding affirmatively to some questions in an interview.
Julie has been seen commenting on her attachment to the actors in the show frequently. She said, “A long-running show leaves behind a legacy of storytellers and their relationship with the audience. Hard to change that you know?”
Well, we would all LOVE another season of the show or five. However, nobody from the cast and creators except Plec has demonstrated any eagerness for the same. Maybe it’s the pandemic keeping the announcements down; maybe there just won’t be another season. We ought to have a clearer answer on this debate towards the year’s end and if there is to be a season 9, it will air on The CW in 2021 (rumours have wings!).
