Producer Reveals Secrets of The Vampire Diaries

at . Comments

Based on the series premiere of The Vampire Diaries, the new series will clearly be based around numerous mysterious.

Who is Katherine? What is Elena's connection to her? What is the history of the Salvatores and Mystic Falls?

While viewers may be asking questions, however, producer Kevin Williamson says residents of Mystic Falls will not; they won't go too long without learning about the blood suckers that live among them.

“The town wakes up to [the vampires] relatively quick and tries to do something about it,” Williamson said in an interview. “We don’t know exactly who is it in the town, who are these people that figure it out. We have a character coming in, in a couple of episodes that is another series regular that steps in and he comes with an agenda.”

As for Elena's journal, there's a reason she turns to pen and paper, as opposed to keyboard and screen. Williamson said:

“A lot of people write journal on a computer now, but Elena’s mother is the one who gave her that journal and explained to her the importance of journaling. So she writes in her journal. It is a connection to her mother. It is really a nice way to sort of open up a story, begin a story and close a story. It is a really great bookend."

The Vampire Diaries premieres on September 10 on The CW.

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: You know what they are? Children. Like lighting a candle's going to make everything OK, or even saying a prayer. Or pretending Elena's not going to end up just like the rest of us murdering vampires. Stupid, delusional, exasperating little children. And I know what you're going to say: 'It makes them feel better, Damon.' So what? For how long? A minute, a day? What difference does it make? Because in the end, when you lose somebody, every candle, every prayer is not going to make up for the fact that the only thing you have left is hole in your life where that somebody that you cared about used to be. And a rock with a birthday carved into it that I'm pretty sure is wrong. So thanks, friend. Thanks for leaving me here to babysit. Because I should be long gone by now. I didn't get the girl, remember? I'm just stuck here fighting my brother and taking care of the kids. You owe me big.
Alaric: I miss you too, buddy.
