at . Comments

Great news, viewers of The CW: there's plenty more blood sucking and lip locking to come!

The network has picked up The Vampire Diaries for a full season of episodes, while Melrose Place won't be going off the air any time soon.

The decision to extend the former show for 22 episodes was a no-brainer for The CW: the drama thriller earned the network's best premiere ratings of all-time and has remained strong on competitive Thursday nights.

Conversely, ratings for Melrose Place continue to falter, which is why it's only received an order for five additional episodes.

However that number could go up if Heather Locklear can have a positive impact on the series. She debuts on November 17.

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.


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.
