After eight seasons, The Vampire Diaries is ending tonight, March 10th. Recently, showrunner Julie Plec spoke with The Hollywood Reporter about ending the CW series. But what we want to know is: Would you have watched a ninth season of the show?
The supernatural drama revolves around the search for love and the battle between good and evil in the supernatural-charged town of Mystic Falls, Virginia. The cast includes Paul Wesley, Ian Somerhalder, Kat Graham, Candice King, Zach Roerig, Matt Davis, and Michael Malarkey.
In the interview, Plec revealed part of the decision to end The Vampire Diaries came down to logistics:
There were a lot of things that went into [the decision to end the series]. Some logistics, some contractual, where you were just like, ‘OK, if this person doesn’t come back, is the show still going to be good? What if they do come back, but we don’t know until the end?’ A lot of that silly stuff you’re not supposed to talk about. Logistical stuff.”
However, when it came down to it, the decision was a creative one:
What it came down to for us was, let’s start talking about the season and see what it feels like, see what stories we want to tell, see where those stories take us. And then if it feels like it should be over, then it should be over.”
Later, Plec mentioned they weren’t able to tie up all the loose ends in the series finale:
We had two hit lists. We had one, who do we want to see again? Because in a season when we’re leading up to goodbye, being able to get one final look at some of our beloved characters was most important. And then the other was, what have we not resolved? In 171 episodes, what are those dangling chads that will haunt us until the end of time if we don’t get answers to those questions?
We just couldn’t find a place and a way to answer one — which plagued me because we tried. It’s certainly disappointing.”
Given that one dangling thread, do you think there should’ve been a ninth season of the The CW series? Would you have watched? Is it ending at the right time?Tell us what you think.
i wanna know what happemns
season 9 would be epic
i love tvd and i hate that people stopped watching pls bring it back…
Yes would def watch more
Definitely would’ve loved to see more season’s of the vampire diaries , I absolutely love the show . I was so sad to see it ending at the 8th season . Would’ve been nice to see what happened when Elena woke up an ran to Damon . Also gotta know how Stefan and Caroline are doing after they got married . They had to settle into family mode with the twins . Please reconsider adding a few more season’s .
My daughter and I love Vampire Diaries hoping to see season 9 that would be so awesome love the characters especially Damon
Oh yes I would watch another and another season. I loved the show
Yes i think there should be a season 9
I would watch every season. You should not end the TV show because as you can see there is a lot of people in theses comments that are fans of the awesome TV show and I believe you should bring it back because you would not have believers no more because this is one of the best TV shows any person could watch because it has Vampire,Witches,Werwolves in it and you don’t get that in any other TV show and if you could please make my dreams come true and make more seasons of this TV shows if not well… Read more »
I hope the Originals gets a season five now.. Season 4 only has half the normal number of episodes! TVD was my FAV but at least I still have TO.
I did not want it to end, l would never have stopped watching
