The Vampire Diaries & The Originals Nab Containment Stars

23 June 2016 12:28 PM, PDT | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

Containment may have been one and done for The CW, but two of the stars have obviously made an impression on Julie Plec

First up, Kristen Gutoskie has booked a recurring gig on The Vampire Diaries Season 8. 

Gutoskie will play Seline, who is described as a warm, nurturing nanny of two kids by day, and a small-town girl trying to find her place in a dangerous world by night. 

Seline apparently feels "bonded" to her new family in ways that she could never have imagined and will go out her way to ensure their safety. 

It sounds very ominous, right?

The two young kids part certainly makes us think that she could be the nanny to Caroline and Alaric's daughters. 

It does sound a little obvious, but the show has been pretty predictable for the better part of the last three years. 

Alaric's character was butchered by god awful writing »

The Originals Season 4: Containment Actress Cast as Bisexual Werewolf

23 June 2016 11:37 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

Containment‘s Christina Moses has caught the CW bug.

Fresh from her one-season run on the network’s contagion thriller, the actress is jumping to The Originals in a recurring role, Deadline reports. (Both shows are Ep’d by Julie Plec. so we’re guessing the two of them hit it off during their time on Containment).

The Vampire Diaries Season 8: Good Guys Go Bad — What Happens Next?

14 June 2016 6:13 PM, PDT | | See recent news »

TVLine hits rewind on the TV season’s biggest “What Happens Next” finales, then invites you to predict the cliffhanger outcomes.

It’s been almost exactly one month since The Vampire Diaries wrapped its seventh season, and we’re still finding stray goosebumps. That final shot of Damon and Enzo stringing up the bodies of their (countless) victims will likely continue to haunt us until the series returns for Season 8 — or at least until we see the cast at Comic-Con next month.

Benderspink Dissolving Production-Management Company After 18 Years

17 May 2016 2:48 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

JC Spink and Chris Bender are dissolving their 18-year-old management-production company Benderspink, which has been involved in “The Hangover” trilogy, “We’re the Millers,” “A History of Violence” and “Zombeavers.”

The duo said the split is amicable in a statement issued Tuesday: “We started Benderspink in our late 20s almost 18 years ago. We could not be more proud of what we’ve achieved together and are excited for this next chapter in each of our lives.”

The statement did not elaborate on what they will do next.

Spink focused mostly on management while Bender focused on producing. The company was formed in 1998 after the two had worked as assistants at Zide-Perry Productions, where Bender received a co-producing credit on “American Pie.”

The duo, who met at Bucknell University, had a long-time first-look deal through New Line that launched in 2001. They delivered mid-budget titles such as “Horrible Bosses” and “The Butterfly Effect” franchises, »

The Vampire Diaries Finale Will Give You Steroline Closure, Reveal Bonnie's Fate

13 May 2016 1:45 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

One word for you, Vampire Diaries fans: Steroline. There is a Steroline development coming in the Tvd season seven finale that will give the relationship between Stefan (Paul Wesley) and Caroline (Candice King) some closure—something that they didn't really get before Stefan decided to go on the run with Valerie for a few years and Caroline went and fell in love with Alaric (Matt Davis) after magically having his children. (Just another day in Mystic Falls!) E! News spoke with Tvd creator Julie Plec ahead of the season seven finale, and she promised that, by the end of the episode, we will have an answer either way about which man Caroline will choose.

‘Containment’ Canceled By The CW After One Season

12 May 2016 4:42 PM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

The slow and steady not always wins the race. The CW has opted not to renew Julie Plec’s new drama Containment for a second season. Four episodes into its freshman run, Containment has been consistent, averaging a 0.5 rating in 18-49 (Live+same day) each time. Still, the network may have looked at its retention from the sizable Flash lead-in, which was not great. The CW confirmed that there would be no second installment of Containment, which it called a limited… »

‘Containment’ Cancelled at The CW

12 May 2016 3:09 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

The CW’s “Containment” has been cancelled and will not return for Season 2, Variety has confirmed.

The outbreak drama, which was billed as a limited series prior to air, will finish out its freshman season, with its series finale set to air on July 19.

The CW previously renewed most of its existing lineup, and announced Thursday that it would pick up Season 2 of “Supergirl,” which previously aired on CBS. The network also ordered three new shows to series — “Riverdale,” based on the Archie Comics characters; “Frequency,” from “Supernatural” showrunner Jeremy Carver; and hourlong comedy “No Tomorrow.”

In its four airings to date, “Containment” has averaged a steady 0.5 rating in adults 18-49 and 1.5 million viewers overall in same-day Nielsen numbers — faring as well as, if not better than, previous timeslot occupant “iZombie” in several categories.

The series, set in Atlanta following the outbreak of a mysterious epidemic, is executive produced by »

Containment Cancelled at The CW

Containment‘s virus has been stopped.

The CW has cancelled the series after one season, TVLine has confirmed.

It should be noted that Containment was touted as a limited event series ahead of its launch. (Prior to that, though, executive producer Chris Ord told TVLine, “We’re looking at the first season as its own thing, but it’ll leave us room to go forward and do more.”)

Containment debuted in April to 1.67 million total viewers and a 0.5 demo rating. Since then, it has »

The Vampire Diaries, The Originals: Creator Teases More Crossovers for Next Season

11 May 2016 11:36 PM, PDT | | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

The Vampire Diaries and The Originals have both been renewed by CW for the 2016-2017 season, and fans could see more crossovers between the two series next season.

Julie Plec spoke about the potential for more crossovers with TV Line. She said the following:

“This year, as we’ve crossed over, we’ve acknowledged [The Vampire Diaries and The Originals‘] shared universe. As we know from The Originals, there’s a prophecy predicting the demise of the Mikaelson family, so it was a nice little tease for viewers of that show to ask themselves, ‘Wait, what the hell happened to Klaus?’ It’s a rare luxury to have two shows in a shared universe that you could do that. So to not do it feels like we’re missing a really fun creative opportunity, a way to celebrate both shows. But it’s not like anyone over at the »

The Vampire Diaries season 7 episode 21 review: Requiem For A Dream

11 May 2016 7:19 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »




Bonnie's rehabilitation and a very heightened emotional situation make for an interesting episode of The Vampire Diaries...

This review contains spoilers

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?
