On March 10, 2018, the Vampire Diaries Season 8 ended. Many loyalist fans of the TV hoped that there would be another season of VD. But, will there be though? Let’s keep discussing that and more.
On March 10, 2017, on ITV2 Vampire Diaries arrived and in a span of seven months, in the UK in the month of November 2017, Season 8 arrived. But for now, the Ninth Season of VD remains mysteriously unexplained. There are people who think that Season 9 of VD is a big no and yet there are people who say Season 9 is a sure shot. Julie Plec the creator of the show informed us that season 9 of VD was being considered but then they decided to go against the decision and not to do it.
Looks like, we won’t be seeing any more of Ian Somerhalder’s Damon Salvatore. For eight whole seasons, Damon continued to steal our hearts with his magic. That was that, and the reality is that Season 9 won’t be happening, at least for now. Again, Somerhalder has made a statement that in 10 whole years, he would be living on a ranch in Wyoming and people will never hear from him again. Ian and the creators have decided that it is in the best interest of everyone to close this chapter VD forever. The closure is beautiful and the best thing that can happen to VD as of now.
In April 2016 Ian Somerhalder had also confirmed that Season 8 wasn’t a possibility, but of course, he withdrew his statement and later Season 8 very much happened. I guess what I am trying to say is that Season 9 might happen.
Same goes for other major shows of VD, Nina Dobrev and Paul Wesley who plays Stefan Salvatore, have no plans of returning to VD Season 9, too. Some of the fans were expecting a Damon Salvatore spin-off, but that has been ruled out again. Other spin-off series that emerged out of The VD was The Originals. Maybe, Plec might come up with something in the near future.
