15 April 2014 5:02 PM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent - Inside TV news »

For Entertainment Weekly’s “The Art of Saying Goodbye” story, which ran in the April 11 issue, we interviewed the masterminds behind 10 iconic TV shows to learn how they crafted their series finales. No one’s story was quite like Dawson’s Creek creator Kevin Williamson’s. He’d stepped away from the drama earlier in its run. The series was set to end with the season 6 episode “Joey Potter and Capeside Redemption,” which sent Joey (Katie Holmes) off to Paris. But then the network had an idea: “Warner Bros. called Greg Berlanti up knowing we were friends and said, ‘See »

TheBacklot Interview: Steven Krueger

15 April 2014 8:12 AM, PDT | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

For regular TV viewers, one of the most gratifying things is that we’re at a time when a gay character’s story is no longer predominantly focused on their sexuality. The coming out story is still out there (and still necessary for those who have yet to step out of the closet) but when a show on the young-demographic network like The CW brings in a gay character and the story isn’t focused on his being gay, progress has been made.

Last year on the hit CW series, The Originals, we were introduced to the character of Josh, who was immediately open about being gay and was dealing with a much bigger piece of drama – he’d just been turned into a vampire by the villainous – but oh-so-sexy – vampire/werewolf hybrid, Klaus (played by Joseph Morgan) and had to learn how to survive.

'The Vampire Diaries': Candice Accola promises a 'strong' Caroline leading up to the finale, teases what's coming next

27 March 2014 5:30 AM, PDT | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

Caroline's going on a road trip for her first college spring break on "The Vampire Diaries," but she's not heading to some boozy beach town with plans to party all night and sleep all day. Nope, she's heading to Atlanta with none other than Enzo to track down Stefan's doppelganger and kill him, ensuring that the Travelers don't kill her Bff. That's a lot of pressure for someone who just wants to make it through her first year of college unscathed ... and maybe get some good grades along the way.

Zap2it got Candice Accola on the line to talk all things Caroline, including what to expect from her road trip with Enzo, whether she can really kill a Stefan doppelganger in cold blood, whether or not she 'ships Caroline with Stefan, and much more. Plus, Accola promises we'll get to see a "strong" Caroline leading up to the big events of the season finale, »

26 March 2014 5:15 PM, PDT | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

There's so much to look forward to in this Thursday's (March 27) episode of "The Vampire Diaries." Caroline and Enzo's road trip. Damon and Elena's friends with benefits experiment. Shady siblings Luke and Liv make their move. A new Stefan doppelganger. And Jeremy makes a decision that changes everything and leaves Elena devastated. What the what?

With so much up in the air going into "Rescue Me," Zap2it went straight to the "Tvd" bosses Julie Plec and Caroline Dries to get all the scoop we could on what to expect from the intense and fun episode. The biggest thing on our minds? Enzo, Enzo, Enzo.

"Enzo of course is full of mischief as they go off on this journey together," executive producer Plec tells Zap2it. "He delights in the fact that he's heard that Caroline has a special soft side for Englishmen with accents. He's constantly poking at her »

'The Vampire Diaries' PaleyFest panel: Cast and showrunners promise good times ahead for Delena, Stelena ... and even Steroline?

23 March 2014 6:30 PM, PDT | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

There would be so much more scoop to reveal about what's coming up on "The Vampire Diaries," if only the fans in attendance at the PaleyFest panel on Saturday (March 22) would have stopped screaming so much. About half of the hour was spent trying to calm the audience down, but all it would take is one word from Ian Somerhalder, Paul Wesley or Nina Dobrev, and the screams would erupt once more. Seriously, "Tvd" fans are a passionate bunch.

In between all the screams, chants and selfie requests (seriously, more of the fan questions were selfie requests than actual questions for the cast and showrunners Julie Plec and Caroline Dries), the panelists were able to drop some hints about the end of Season 5 and beyond. Here are all the scoop tidbits we could hear underneath all the ringing in our ears:

'The Originals' PaleyFest panel: Claire Holt's 'temporary hiatus,' Joseph Morgan talks 'Klaroline' and more scoop revealed

23 March 2014 2:45 PM, PDT | Zap2It - From Inside the Box | See recent Zap2It - From Inside the Box news »

When the cast of The CW's "The Originals" took to the stage for their PaleyFest panel on Saturday (March 22), the main question on every fan's mind was about Rebekah's recent exit from New Orleans and the show in general. Claire Holt decided to put the topic to rest once and for all, explaining how it was actually her decision to leave the series, and that had been the plan since the very beginning of "The Vampire Diaries" spinoff.

"As far as I'm concerned, this is a temporary hiatus," Holt says. "I'm taking a little vacation in the sun but I'm going to return to my New Orleans family. I just want to make it clear to everyone that these incredibly talented writers did not run out of story. They never will."

In fact, Holt made sure to let fans know that she wasn't "pushed out," or that she "quit mid-season. »

‘Vampire Diaries’ and ‘The Originals’ Casts Talk Death and Dating at PaleyFest

23 March 2014 8:54 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

On March 22, the casts and producers of the CW drama “The Vampire Diaries” and its spinoff “The Originals” hosted back-to-back PaleyFest panels at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood to talk about their craft for killing, kiss scenes and conniving plans — the second of which being by far the most interesting to fans, who treated the event like a modern-day Beatles concert. Amidst the screams from the audience, those on stage gave some helpful insight into both shows:

The Originals” was going to be set in Chicago instead of New Orleans.

Julie Plec, who exec produces both shows, said the original “Originals” plan was to go back to Chicago, where there had already been some story with Claire Holt’s original vampire sister Rebekah from her time on “Vampire Diaries,” but that idea was scrapped when they realized they wanted to film in Atlanta and the two cities don’t look alike. »

23 March 2014 3:51 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Warning: This article contains spoilers that some readers may prefer to avoid.

A former Originals cast member has opened up about their exit from the show.

Claire Holt's character - Original vampire Rebekah - departed in the 16th episode 'Farewell to Storyville' when she was exiled by her brother Klaus.

However, the actress stated that she sees her departure as "temporary", explaining that she wanted to spend more time at home.

Praising The Originals as well as parent show The Vampire Diaries, Holt told BuzzFeed: "This show has been so amazing for my career, and I've had such unbelievable material. It was just never my intention to be away from home this long.

"It was a tough choice that I didn't fully make right up until the end, because I was enjoying myself so much. But three seasons later, I realised I hadn't been home to Australia in years. »
