Welcome back to Humor Nation. The Vampire Diaries Universe started with the Vampire Diaries which aired in 2009. It marked the beginning of a Universe which is inhabited by supernatural beings such as Vampires and witches. The story was expanded further by exploring the tale of the Original Vampires which resulted in the birth of the spin-off titled ‘The Originals’. While the Originals explored the Mikaelson Family drama, it also added several new characters to the Universe. One such character was Hope Mikaelson, a tribrid, a one of a kind. The new generation of the TVD characters such as Hope, Lizzie, and Josie resulted in further expanding the TVD Universe by launching ‘Legacies’ which centers around the Salvatore School for the Young & Gifted. Ultimately, Legacies also came to an end on 16th June 2022. After a 13-year long journey, TVDU has finally ended, but did it really?
So Take A Look At 5 Things That You Should Know About The Vampire Diaries Universe
5. THIS IS NOT THE END OF TVDU
As the fans very well know all the three shows have been created by Julie Plec. Plec is the one responsible for launching the Vampire Diaries Universe into the Stratosphere. She co-created TVD with Kevin Williamson who left the show after Season 2. Julie would then go on to create Originals and the Legacies. She wrapped up Originals when she felt it was the right time. When it came to Legacies, it was the CW Network which decided not to renew the show for a next season. Julie Plec talked about the Legacies ending and expressed how it was not the ending they expected, but the plans changed. It was the Network’s decision which forced them to come up with a different ending. She talked about how it makes her feel proud to be a part of such an iconic franchise, but the decision to put the franchise on ‘Pause’ is somewhat irritating.
Plec also talked about the future of the franchise. Even though nothing is set in concrete yet, but she is having conversations about taking the franchise to the next phase. Whatever comes next is definitely will be a part of the TVDU, but it will consist of different characters and will be set in a very different setting.
3. TVDU FRANCHISE
While Twilight is the most commercially successful movie franchise. But when it comes to television, Vampire Diaries franchise is the most successful one. Even though some would say it’s ‘Buffy The Vampire Slayer’ which is undoubtedly one of the most legendary Vampire shows and has now gained a cult status. It spawned a spin-off titled ‘Angel’ which received moderate success. But Vampire Diaries when launched made several records, from being the most viewed pilot episode in the CW history at that time to launching the first spin-off on CW Network. TVD’s spin-off ‘The Originals’ is considered by many to be superior to its predecessor, something which happens very rarely. If you look at the stats, three shows with a total number of 17 Seasons, 331 Episodes, over a course of 13 years.
