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.


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.
