News & Interviews for The Vampire Diaries: Season 8
Through ups and downs, deaths and undeaths, The Vampire Diaries kept it wild, interesting and mostly fun.
The Vampire Diaries premiered for the eighth and final time. Written by the show's creators, Julie Plec and Kevin Williamson, the episode delivered nostalgia, horror, romance, friendship, brotherly love, and new mysteries.
With series finales, TV shows are asked to do something they have never done before: properly end the story. The results are often, -forgive the pun - middling. The Vampire Diaries managed to beat the odds by following a few simple rules.
This wasn't a finale that took huge risks; rather, it was one that tried to sincerely give something back to its fans. Thanks, TVD. It's been epic.
The way people talk about Buffy today is how they're going to talk about TVD in years to come. It's not over. It's eternal.
Audience Reviews for The Vampire Diaries: Season 8
In the final season of The Vampire Diaries the Salvatore brothers face the biggest bad of them all, the Devil himself. After falling victim to a siren Damon makes a deal with her master, Cade (aka the Devil), for him and his brother to provide Cade with souls in exchange for escaping eternal damnation; but when Cade starts making excessive demands Damon plots to kills him and destroy hell. Nathalie Kelley makes for an especially sensual and ruthless villain to kick off the season with, however Wole Parks as Cade is a little underwhelming. In fact, having a Devil and a psychic hell dimension is kind of a strange place for the series mythology to go. Still, it gives the season stakes and sets up an end game. A number of cast members from previous seasons make cameos, and the series finale does a pretty good job at tying everything up. Season 8 of The Vampire Diaries has some weaknesses, but overall it delivers an exciting adventure that's full of thrills (and chills).
