Get ready for another year of biting and trouble with the gang from Mystic Falls. The CW renewed the long-running series, The Vampire Diaries, which stars Ian Somerhalder and Paul Wesley, for an eighth season.
This renewal ends the speculation that the series would be cancelled and season seven would be its last. That speculation began when the network announced that The Vampire Diaries and The Originals would move to Friday nights. That move happened to kick off the second half of season seven.
The move has actually given the two series new life, according to Entertainment Weekly. That news outlet reported that “the Julie Plec vampire dramas have improved Friday night by 39 percent in total viewers and 60 percent in the demo versus the same time last year.”
Both The Vampire Diaries and The Originals are on a brief break, but the final stretch of episodes for season seven of Vampire Diaries will start to air on April 1.
The other series renewed today by CW are The Flash, Arrow, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, The Originals, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, Jane the Virgin, iZombie, Reign, Supernatural, and The 100.
Are you excited to see an eighth season of The Vampire Diaries? Tell us what you think.
I am nervous waiting the 8th season of the TVD. I hated like the 7th season ended. The 8th season needs to ended because I think that the people deserve this. I am from Brazil and I watch in the Netflix.
I am nervous waiting the 8th season of TVD . I love this serie and I hated like the 7th season ended. I am from Brazil and I watch in the Netflix. The TVD needs to ended. I think that the people are deserving this.
I’m so relieved TVD and The Originals were ultimately renewed. I, also, never even considered watching these shows until I was bored one day and started binge watching TVD. Now I can’t get enough, and I absolutely love The Originals. I’m obsessed with Joseph Morgan. People need to get over Nina leaving the show. I was sad at first too, but I actually think it brought new life to the show. It was a major turning point in the story line, but there are plenty of other characters that have stories to tell. Can’t wait for next season!
I never thought to start watching VD and wasnt really interested in the beginning…But now that Netflix brought it to my attention I binge watched and now I am addicted…Thank god it is still Airing on TV. I wait all week long to see what is going to happen next. I am definitley an Elena and Damon fan…
This is the best thing I heard from a very long time
Vampire Diaries and the Originals are awesome back to back the best shows on….
TVD needs to end. Plec sucks. Treat characters that are not “Elena” like crap.
The CW should have a proper “final season” for TVD ever since Nina Dobrev left.
