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.

AWESOME! I was worried that this show would end up like that dumb 90210 but with this dude, I am sure the books are gonna get the justice it deserves! Maybe LJ Smith will write more books. She should be an advisor to the writers!!!
