“Giving Matt those answers — Who is his father? Does he even exist? Why did he leave? — was important to us, because it was a dangling thread we’d never been able to tell a story about,” executive producer Julie Plec explains to TVLine. “I swear, all Zach Roerig does this season is cry, at least in his first few episodes.”

This Theory About Nina Dobrev's Return to The Vampire Diaries Makes a Lot of Sense

18 November 2016 2:45 PM, PST | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Ever since The Vampire Diaries announced that season eight is its last season, the one question on everyone's mind has been: will Nina Dobrev return? Even though the writers and actress have kept pretty mum about the actual details, creator Julie Plec did admit that Dobrev made a promise to come back when she left the show in season six. While Elena Gilbert is currently under a sleeping curse (only to wake up when Bonnie dies), there is a good chance Dobrev could still return . . . as Katherine Pierce. Now stay with me here as I flesh out the details. This whole season has predominantly been about hell, and during episode four, Sybil reveals a little piece of the puzzle. To save Damon from his evil ways, Stefan has to kill the devil, a man we now know to be Cade. So, the main question now is, are the characters going »

The Vampire Diaries Season 8 Episode 1 Review: Hello Brother

21 October 2016 6:00 PM, PDT | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

Members of The Vampire Diaries cast foreshadowed a darker final season, and The Vampire Diaries Season 8 Episode 1 has definitely begun to deliver on that promise. 

From the set lighting to the storyline to the despair Stefan Salvatore's facing about his brother's descent into madness, "Hello, Brother" just felt heavy. And that's not a bad thing.

View Slideshow: The Vampire Diaries Photos from "Hello Brother"

Julie Plec has teased that Elena Gilbert will factor heavily into this season's narrative, and tonight's premiere definitely sets that tone. 

Bonnie, Stefan, and Caroline are all taking turns writing diary entries to Elena, which is a callback to The Vampire Diaries Season 1's "Dear Diary" episode opener. Scenes from previous episodes with Nina Dobrev in them also featured prominently tonight, most notably Damon's first meeting with Elena, a scene we've only witnessed once.

That scene matters because Damon is on the verge of flipping his humanity switch, »

‘Remote Controlled’: Showrunner Julie Plec on Ending ‘Vampire Diaries,’ the Future of ‘The Originals’

21 October 2016 1:21 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Welcome to “Remote Controlled,” Variety’s podcast series featuring the best and brightest in television, both in front and behind the camera.

This week’s episode features Variety executive editor of TV Debra Birnbaum and editor-at-large Michael Schneider in conversation with Julie Plec, executive producer of CW’s “The Vampire Diaries” and “The Originals.” Plec speaks candidly about the decision to end “The Vampire Diaries” after eight successful seasons, saying the timing felt right to finally close the books on the popular series.

“I just always had to look at what value [could] I continue to add to this show, and if I were to stop adding value, do I believe that it could carry on and be good and be something that that I could be proud of from afar?” says Plec. “If we can’t complete these characters’ journeys full-stop, we’re doing a disservice to the legacy of the show.”
