All About The Vampire Diaries
The Vampire Diaries is a television series led by the characters Elena Gilbert, Stefan Salvatore, and Damon Salvatore, based on the novel by American author L.J. Smith. The story chronicles Elena Gilbert, a supernaturally gifted teenager, who falls for both the vampire brothers, Stefan and Damon Salvatore. A mix of romance and horror has caught people's attention so they can keep up with the tension of each new season.
Having access to the supernatural world of Mystic Falls grants Elena and her friends access to the dangers of the world of vampires, werewolves, witches, and other supernatural beings. Elena is saved from the dangers of Mystic Falls by Stefan and Damon, which is sad, but the fact that Elena has a double named 'Katherine' makes the plot a mess.

Nina Dobrev in the role of 'Elena Gilbert/Katherine Pierce'. Paul Wesley as Stefan Salvatore. Somerhalder as Damon Salvatore. Steven R. McQueen as Jeremy Gilbert Kat Graham as Bonnie Bennett. Candice Accola-King as Caroline Forbes Zach Roerig as Matt Donovan. Michael Trevino as Tyler Lockwood. Matt Davis as Alaric Saltzman.

Why The Vampire Diaries is So Popular
The Vampire Diaries captured the audience's curiosity with its plot-twisting storylines. By constantly giving the audience a question to ask and having that answered in the next episode, the TV series retained its popularity. The excitement offered by the show to its viewers seduced the audience into anticipating more seasons. Elena Gilbert (Nina Dobrev), who was forced to leave the show in season 6, has also had a huge effect on the whole plot.
People get attached to the characters and the suspense of the story. They are also obsessed with how the world of vampires, werewolves, and doubles is shown in detail, and they are hooked on mythology.
The audience is addicted to every season because of how beautiful, perfect, and talented the actors are at playing the characters.
Every episode has unexpected plot twists and tense situations that make viewers happy and make them want to keep watching and supporting the show.
Consequences of Ending Dobrev's Character
Elena Gilbert's character, portrayed by Nina Dobrev, influenced the audience and created a massive success for the story. She spiced up the plot twisting stories and became both the main characters' muse. The love triangle between them was overlooked by the fans, who were hoping for a happily ever after. She messed up Stefan and Damon's relationship and also made it clear to the brothers that they loved each other. The ending of Dobrev's character made the story focus the plot from the Salvatore brothers’ love for Elena to their love for each other. But that’s not the only Vampire Diaries relationship affected by Dobrev’s exit.
Elena Gilbert's character disappearance obligates the show to focus on the brotherhood and relationship between Damon and Stefan. The Salvatore brothers settled their resentments while battling villains in the underworld. But her absence ended the story's love triangle and romance, which didn't make viewers and fans happy enough.
The fantasies of the fans by having an epic love story between the two vampires who bothered the audience and lost their interest in supporting the show. Even though it is clear that the creators of the show wanted to focus on the relationship between Stefan and Damon, it can't be denied that the absence of Elena affected their enthusiasm.
The Vampire Diaries' ending was actually always planned for A. Salvatore's death. However, showrunners Julie Plec and Kevin Williamson have stated that the deaths of both the Salvatore brothers were always intended for the series finale. They also imply that they have cried over the season finale that ended with both Stefan and Damon dying at the end of the series.
Is The Vampire Diaries Coming Back?
The show somehow concluded in season 8. It was an inevitable end. Even though there are rumors that season 9 will come out in March 2021, the show's ratings are going down and contracts are ending, so season 8 will be the natural end.
It is indeed difficult for the show to come up with another plot or continuation of the story. The progress of the story focused on the characters of Stefan and Damon, which made the viewers who hoped for a romantic ending lose interest in the remaining series. This caused Julie Plec and executive producer Kevin Williamson to end the series on season 8, and the cancellation of season 9 was imposed. After 5 years of the season finale, it will be very hard for the writers and producers to come up with new content knowing that the story has already reached its natural conclusion. The show's creator, Julie Plec, put an end to all rumors about Season 9 of The Vampire Diaries.
Fans are eagerly waiting for the 9th season of the show, but the information is still not confirmed, and the rumored release date of March 2021 has not been confirmed by the show's creators.
The Vampire Diaries season 8, entitled 'I was feeling epic,' twisted the importance of love between family and loved ones. The viewers were taken on an emotional roller coaster, culminating in a tragic ending. But one thing is common. We're all hoping that the show will somehow have another season.
