The Vampire Diaries to Make Like... Shakespeare?

O Tyler, Tyler! Wherefore art thou Tyler?

William Shakespeare might not be the first name one associates with The Vampire Diaries, but Kevin Williamson teases that this will change on season three, thanks to Caroline and Tyler. They are "building to be a fun, romantic Romeo and Juliet" type of relationship, the producer told EW this week.

“We now have a mother who knows her daughter’s a vampire, and we might soon have a mayor who figures out that her son is a werewolf,” Williamson says. “When that happens, it’s certainly building itself to a family feud."

It definitely sounds like Matt is out of the romantic picture, but that doesn't mean all will be smooth sailing for Caroline and Tyler. Adds fellow producer Julie Plec:

“When their mothers find out the truth about each of them, they’re gonna have a say in whether the two of them should be together."

In other season three news, someone will be turning 18 on the September 15 premiere and someone might be getting a new love interest!

Wouldn't it be great if they added in Matt or even a new character to represent Paris?

The most oldest bit was that I thought Ages ago that Candice Accola's performance as 'Caroline Forbes' was portraying a type of mentor relationship (much like the Underworld series) to the Tyler character.


best news ever!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Yay Caroline and Tyler. I'm just happy that two of my fave's are finally going to be in the spotlight. So bored of the Damon show.


This is the best spoiler for season 3 right now.


I so want to see Caroline and Tyler together. He just better not playfully nibble on her ear during a romantic moment..... :P


I would like to see the Damon in a relationship. He keeps me coming back 4 more!


Don't dissapoint me, TVD.


I'm so excited! I can't wait to see what happens with Caroline and Tyler. The family feud will be interesting especially since their closest family are humans. And I'm excited to see more Damon! :)

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.


Hey, Blondie. Today isn't the worst day of your life. Today and tomorrow, it's a cakewalk. There'll be people around you day in and day out like they're afraid to leave you alone. The worst day? That's next week when there's nothing but quiet. Just a heads up.
