The rain comes down on the Mystic Falls residents in the brand new sesaon eight poster for The Vampire Diaries.
Showrunner Julie Plec spoke to TVLine about what’s ahead on the season, just before the premiere episode airs tonight on The CW.
“We set up at the end [of Season 7] that Stefan had kept up with writing in the journal to keep [Elena] up to speed with everything they’ve been going through. We really keep that up in the beginning of the season. Everyone has their turn telling their stories in the journal,” she shared.
Julie continued, “With that, we’ve gotten to both keep Elena’s character alive, but also return to the nostalgia of Season 1 when ‘Dear diary’ was a thing.”
She added that the final season is a “year of finallys…because it’s the last season, we get to deliver on all the things we’ve been keeping a nice Santa’s wish list of.”
The Vampire Diaries premieres TONIGHT, Friday, October 21 @ 8PM ET/PT on The CW.
