Julie Plec Reveals When ‘The Vampire Diaries’ Is Ending (Sorta)


It has to happen sometime, right? One day we’ll be faced with The Vampire Diaries coming to a close but, until then, we’re left guessing when that day might come.

Julie Plec, one of the show’s creators, recently opened up about the longevity of one of The CW’s longest-running series and how she — and the rest of the creative team — will make that decision that will tear all of our hearts to shreds.

“I finally realized that my destiny on this show, creatively, is tied in to Ian Somerhalder and Paul Wesley. And I mean that in a really good way,” Julie told E! News. “As long as those boys who I now consider my friends want to keep telling the story, then I won’t walk away from telling the story.”

It’s hard to even think about the end — even without Nina Dobrev — because the show, now in the middle of Season 7, is better than ever (though ratings leave much to be desired).

Julie says she’ll stick with the show until the very end. We hope Ian and Paul take a page out of Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki’s book a la Supernatural and keep the brother shenanigans going forever. However, when the time comes to end, it will be a group decision.

"When they are ready to be done telling the story, I will put my pencil down and say that I'm done too, and then we will work together to end it in the best way possible,” she concluded.

The Vampire Diaries Season 7 midseason premiere airs Friday, January 29, at 8 p.m. ET on The CW.
