Do Supernatural Shows Need a Human Element?

Anna Paquin, Stephen Moyer

Though the vampire and zombie trends might be on their last legs, it's likely only a matter of time before the next supernatural fad hits the airwaves. But no matter what type of otherworldly being is in the spotlight, is it possible for a supernatural show to be too supernatural? Does a series need that grounding humanity to keep it from spiraling into the absurd? Or is it the "anything goes," free-for-all attitude that makes us love these shows in the first place?

What can you say is coming up for Lindsay and Severide this season on Chicago P.D. and Chicago Fire— Nina

The Vampire Diaries

Vampire Diaries fans have seen Elena Gilbert grieve, but when Season 6 premieres, she'll have seemingly moved on from losing the love of her life, Damon.

"One of the big questions you'll be asking when we get back is how did she pick up the pieces?" executive producer Julie Plec told TVGuide.com. "Or did she pick up the pieces at all?

And she's got some odd and awkward coping mechanisms that inform a lot about where she is and how she's handling this particular grief."

CBS' Stalker From Kevin Williamson Is Not Another Following

Dylan McDermott, Maggie Q

Between Scream's violent murders, The Vampire Diaries' blood-lusting vampires and The Following's serial killers, Kevin Williamson has become synonymous with horrifying tales that will most likely end in tragedy. Although his new CBS drama Stalker goes down a similarly dark route in the show's pilot, the executive producer promises this is a very different show from his past work, in particular the bloody and often gruesome Following.  

"In my mind, it's apples and oranges," Williamson told reporters at the Television Critics Association's fall previews on Thursday. "'We have... read more
