Kevin Williamson Signs on for The Secret Circle

at . Comments

Kevin Williamson is moving from vampires to witches.

The executive producer and writer for The Vampire Diaries has agreed to take on those same roles for The Secret Circle, a series The CW is expected to greenlight for its fall schedule.

The Secret Circle

Also based on a novel series by LJ Smith, The Secret Circle focuses on a California teen who moves to her mother's hometown of New Salem. Once there, she discovers that she's part of a coven of witches.

The good news? Williamson's involvement instantly increases our interest in the upcoming drama.

The bad news? It means no immediate plans for a rumored, quasi Vampire Diaries spin-off; and the fear that Williamson splitting his time between two shows could negatively affect the quality of each.

Vampire Diaries Quotes

You want a love that consumes you. You want passion and adventure, and even a little danger... I want you to get everything you're looking for. But for right now, I want you to forget that this happened. Can't have people knowing I'm in town yet. Goodnight, Elena.

Damon

Dear Elena, yes you heard that correctly. Hell has frozen over. I'm writing it all down. Granted, I'm half a bottle in thanks to my 1950 Chateau Cheval Blanc, a bottle I waited 65 years to open. I used to spend nights sitting in my wine cellar convincing myself I could hear it age, tannins growing, fermenting, but appreciating its beauty didn't make time go by any faster. The bottle just laid there on its shelf, torturing me while I waited for Katherine and time stood still. Eventually I convinced myself that no sip of that wine could ever taste as good as I dreamt it would. And that is the story of why I drink bourbon. I don't know who I am without you, but I know that as long as I'm with you, time will stand still. So who is Damon Salvatore without Elena Gilbert? A selfish friend, a jealous brother, a horrible son? Or maybe with a little luck, I'll do right by you. Because you may be a thousand miles away or a hundred years away, but you're still here with me and my heart is right there in that coffin with you. Until you come back to me.

Damon
