The Vampire Diaries: About More Than Just Vampires!

at . Comments

Kevin Williamson had a few important messages for audiences members in attendance at The Vampire Diaries panel discussion last week at Comic-Con.

First, the show's executive producer - likely best known for having created Dawson's Creek - said this new series is right up his writing alley.

"Every single character [in the book] is dealing with death, loss and life - which is perfect for me, because everything I write about is pretty much death and loss and hopelessness," Williamson told the crowd.

Moreover, he revealed a pair of huge spoilers for the first season:

  1. "The town of Mystic Falls has a lot of things that go bump in the night," he said, implying that blood suckers aren't the only creatures alive in the woods.
  2. Elena will learn Stefan's true identity within the show's first three or four episodes.

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.


We met and we talked and it was epic. But the sun came up and reality set in.
