Sdcc 2016: The sun is rising on Mystic Falls and the bloodsuckers are skipping town. The CW is cutting off the head of The Vampire Diaries, stuffing garlic down its throat and burying it upside down so it doesn’t claw its way back to the surface. The Vampire Diaries season 8 will be the last season, it was announced at Comic Con on July 23.
“It’s so rare for a show to get to last this long, and what a privilege that Mark Pedowitz and Peter Roth have allowed us to choose the time to end the journey on our own creative terms,” executive producer Julie Plec said. “It’s been eight of the best years of my life. »
There were many excellent moments in season 7 of The Vampire Diaries and more than a few of those moments involved Bonnie Bennett. Bonnie had quite the journey this season, as she dealt with numerous threats to her life, struggled with being abandoned by her best friend, and found joy in falling in love. And this was all before she took over Rayna's role as the Huntress and woke up with a powerful need to kill the people she loves. Take a look back at the 10 most important Bonnie moments from season 7.
Bonnie's rehabilitation and a very heightened emotional situation make for an interesting episode of The Vampire Diaries...

7.21: Requiem For A Dream
Nothing impresses me more than when a television show can bring a character back from the depths of audience hatred - when the writers finally wake up to an actor's talent or a character's potential and craft them some good material. The opposite of this has happened a lot of The Vampire Diaries (Matt, we'll get to you later), but it's rare for a show to really pull it off as well as these guys have with Bonnie.
Damon's speech at the end of Requiem For A Dream, in which he recounts all of the things Bonnie has had to overcome since season 1, and how much he admires her for it, was thus a high point of the whole series for me. »
Not to alarm you or anything, but heading into the season finale of The Vampire Diaries, Bonnie Bennett is trying to kill basically everyone she loves in the world. It's cool! Surely her vampire friends will find a way to unlink her from the magic that's imbuing her with an unquenchable thirst to eradicate the vampire race, right?! That's what they're going to have to do in the finale, and creator Julie Plec tells E! News that we should definitely worry about the characters we love. Who knows if they can stop this evil that's made its home inside Bonnie before she follows through and actually kills one of them? "I think you need to be a little bit worried about everybody, because otherwise it »
Try as I might, I doubt I’ll ever be able to purge the image of Bonnie Bennett beheading Caroline Forbes from my memory.
Fortunately, that disturbing dismemberment was merely a dream sequence, one of several Bonnie experienced as she struggled to fight Rayna’s curse on Friday’s Vampire Diaries. Caroline and Enzo each gave it their best shot, entering Bonnie’s brain to locate the curse’s off switch, but neither achieved much success.

Bonnie Bennett (Kat Graham) has been through a lot on The Vampire Diaries—after all, she's died like five times already. But this time it's pretty serious—the Bennett witch had been ingesting the blood of a powerful vampire hunter to suppress her magic, and unbeknownst to her it had deadly side effects. Luckily the group banded together to save her—but in exchange, she was imbued with a bloodlust to eradicate all vampires from the Earth. Yes, even all her friends. This week, the whole gang bands together to find a way for Bonnie to live without the unquenchable thirst to murder them all. Enzo (Michael Malarkey) will stand by as his love fights for her life, while Damon (Ian Somerhalder) deals with the »
Friday’s episode of The Vampire Diaries pummeled us with two major breakups, and I’m honestly not sure which split was more depressing.

The first breakup — the more obviously heartbreaking one, shall we say — was between Valerie and Stefan, freshly reunited with his own body after spending nearly two full episodes waltzing about as that Joseph Morgan look-alike. Returning Stefan’s soul nearly cost Valerie her life, and during a post-spell chat set to Ruelle’s devastating “I Get to Love You,” she acknowledged that her brooding boyfriend was more »

After several years of delays, the Tupac Shakur biopic All Eyez on Me finally started production last month, with newcomer Demetrius Shipp Jr. starring as the late rapper. The supporting cast is now starting to come together, with Deadline reporting that The Walking Dead star Danai Gurira has come aboard to play Tupac's mother, Afeni Shakur. Variety also reports that Katerina Graham has joined the cast to play Jada Pinkett Smith.
We reported last month that Benny Boom (Next Day Air) had signed on to direct, and that the production needed to get started by the end of 2015, or else production company Morgan Creek would lose Tupac Shakur's music rights, which will revert back to his mother, Afeni Shakur. Principal photography got started at the end of December, with Afeni Shakur herself on board as executive producer. Afeni Shakur is a political activist and an active member of the Black Panther party, »
