The Vampire Diaries is coming back to television this fall and for the first time in years. The show aired its final episode in March 2017, with Stefan Salvatore’s voiceover saying, “I’m happy.” Fans were left wondering what would happen next for Elena Gilbert, Damon Salvatore, Bonnie Bennett, and more. Now they don’t have to wait any longer!
About the Trailer and what can we expect?
In an exclusive trailer released on the Entertainment Tonight YouTube channel, we see some of our favorite characters reuniting after so long apart: Tyler Lockwood (Michael Trevino), Jeremy Gilbert (Steven R. McQueen), and Caroline Forbes (Candice King). We also get a glimpse of Katherine Pierce (Nina Dobrev), who has a meeting of her own with Damon Salvatore (Ian Somerhalder) at the Mystic Grill.
While we’re not sure what’s been going on in Mystic Falls over these past few years, there is plenty to speculate about. The only thing that’s clear? This upcoming season will be one heck of a ride!
In addition to this trailer, which was filmed during filming for Season Eight back in October 2017, Entertainment Tonight also just released an exclusive interview with showrunner Julie Plec who teased some small details about the reunion and future episodes: “We are really excited because when you finish any series, it’s always your responsibility as a creative team to take care of those characters.” And she hinted at more surprises in store: “It will be lovely to see some faces that we didn’t think we were going to see again.”
“I would say there are a lot of surprises this season. Every episode is like a mini-series finale,” she said with the enthusiasm of someone who has been waiting for them her whole life.
As fans anxiously await the premiere on October 11th, here’s everything you need to know about your favorite characters and their new journeys in Season Eight!
