Evil is coming to Mystic Falls! Exec producer Julie Plec confirms to TV Guide Magazine that before the end of The Vampire Diaries' second season, viewers will get to meet Klaus — one of the original vampires. "We do not know anything about him other than that he's to be reckoned with and that no one's going to be safe when he gets to town," says Plec. "How he gets to town, when he gets to town, what he looks like when he gets to town — that's all part of the mystery."
But Plec isn't just being cagey. She tells us the character of Klaus keeps changing as the audition process progresses...
The Vampire Diaries co-creator and executive producer Kevin Williamson is working on a potential new companion series for the hit CW drama, Deadline reports.
The supernatural drama, which is in early stages of development, is described as The X-Files meets Buffy the Vampire Slayer, according to the site. The show would focus on a group of people who...
The Vampire Diaries' second season took a sharp turn when one of the show's innocent teens, Caroline (Candice Accola), became a vampire. Executive producer Kevin Williamson says he never doubted which of the series' humans he wanted to take to the dark side.
"I said, 'We need a game-changer, and if one of these characters had to be a vampire, who would you want to see?' I wanted to see Caroline," Williamson told TVGuide.com.
If The Vampire Diaries is supposed to suffer from a second-season curse, someone forgot to send the supernatural romance the memo. Feeding the public's continuing thirst for vampire love, lust and blood, Season 2's ratings have been steady and fan frenzy has multiplied. The CW's highest-rated series' place in the TV firmament was cemented when Nina Dobrev, who plays long-suffering teen heroine Elena Gilbert (plus her evil vamp doppelgänger, Katherine Pierce), was chosen for Jimmy Fallon's buzzy Emmy opening number. "We're definitely not in a sophomore slump," says exec producer Kevin Williamson. "The actors are still so enthusiastic."

After a year and a half hiatus, the New York Comic Con returned this weekend, drawing a reported crowd of 100,000 to the Jacob K. Javits Center in Manhattan. The event doesn't quite have the star power of San Diego's Comic-Con International, but it's quickly becoming one of the top fan events for sci-fi related movies and TV as well as video games and, of course, comic books.
One of the weekend's biggest draws was a panel for...
The Vampire Diaries - Michael Treviso
Hold on to your hellhounds, kids. If Tyler (Michael Trevino) can convince Uncle Mason to come clean about the Lockwood curse, life — and death — in Mystic Falls will be getting a whole lot hairier.
"Our werewolf plot is our big story," says Vampire Diaries exec producer Kevin Williamson, adding that the reveal not only "launches the arc for the season" but also leaves Damon (Ian Somerhalder) with a new battle on his hands.
Maiara Walsh, who played Gaby's and Carlos' bratty, over-sexed niece Ana on last season's Desperate Housewives, is headed to Mystic Falls to cause more even trouble. In Vampire Diaries' Oct. 7 episode, the 22-year-old actress will appear as Sarah, a high schooler who likes to party....
The Vampire Diaries
Villain vampire Katherine, who once turned the Salvatore brothers into sexy undead fangers, has returned to Mystic Falls — and boy, is she ready to cause some trouble. Vampire Diaries executive producer Julie Plec reveals that while the boys will discover her true identity quickly — since there was that little mix-up in the finale when Damon kissed Elena, but it was really Katherine! — the love triangle will get even more complicated in Season 2.
