The CW isn’t mincing any punches this fall season. Not only are they slam dunking with new seasons of hits like ANTM, One Tree Hill, and Gossip Girl, but they are also introducing some new shows, sure to intice some various new viewership.
The Vampire Diaries is one of those shows that will do just that.
Spinning on the coat tales of popular vampire related fiction such as Twilight and HBO’s True Blood, The CW decided to take over and offer one of their own, designed with their typical audience in mind.
“Four months after the tragic car accident that killed their parents, 17-year-old Elena Gilbert and her 15-year-old brother, Jeremy are still adjusting to their new reality. Elena has always been the star student; beautiful, popular and involved with school and friends, but now she finds herself struggling to hide her grief from the world. Elena and Jeremy are now living with their cool-but-overwhelmed Aunt Jenna, who is doing her best to be a surrogate parent.
As the school year begins at Mystic Falls High, Elena and her friends are fascinated by a handsome and mysterious new student, Stefan Salvatore. Stefan and Elena are immediately drawn to one another, although Elena is puzzled by Stefan’s increasingly bizarre behavior when he appears suddenly at the cemetery where her parents are buried. What she doesn’t realize is that Stefan is hiding a dark, deadly secret of his own – the fact that he’s a vampire. At a bonfire party the next night, Elena and Stefan are just getting to know each other when chaos erupts after Vicki is attacked and left bleeding from a savage bite to the neck.”
It does seem very Twilightesque, but was apparently adapted from a series written by LJ Smith. If vampires and high schoolers are your thing, check it out. I might give it a try and see what it has to offer!
