The Vampire Diaries is an awesome TV series that falls under the genre of supernatural teen drama. Developed by Julie Plec and Kevin Williamson, it premiered exactly a decade ago, all the way back in 2009. In total, eight seasons were released.
The show concluded two years ago, in 2017, much to the dissatisfaction of its fans who would have preferred that it was on air indefinitely. That being said, The Vampire Diaries did result in two spin-off shows, The Originals and Legacies.
As most fans are probably well aware, the plot of The Vampire Diaries centers on a human girl who falls in love with a vampire. Obviously, their relationship is problematic, not least because the girl is not indifferent to her immortal boyfriend's brother. The love story between the human girl and the vampire is not the only plot line of this show, however. Indeed, over the course of the series we are introduced to countless other characters (and as is only natural, they're all in pursuit of their personal agenda).
