Yes, it’s true. It was announced on Saturday, July 23 at San Diego Comic Con that The Vampire Diaries will end after the upcoming 8th season.
With a beautiful tribute video to the fans serving as the show’s goodbye, fans were left to reflect on the memories this show has given so many of us. Admittedly, I didn’t watch the show from the very first airing, but I binge watched it on Netflix and was immediately hooked! My mother, my niece, her mother and I would have TVD nights to watch the show together. I even went up to Orlando with my good friend Keisha to a TVD Convention where I met a lot of other fans that became friends! Four conventions later, I can honestly say that this cast is so incredibly humble and extremely appreciative of their fans even after all these years.
To be completely honest, this show opened the door for me to start recapping shows for Variety Radio Online and now my own site, According to Kristin. While I won’t sit here and say that I sobbed after hearing the news, I will say that this show has changed a lot of things for me and for that I’m forever grateful.
Keisha and I will be recapping the 8th season each week over on our AudioBoom channel (The Chatterbox with Keisha and Kristin), so definitely check that out and like our page!
