'The Vampire Diaries' Finale Scoop: EP Julie Plec on Getting a Sense of Closure

'The Vampire Diaries' Finale Scoop: EP Julie Plec on Getting a Sense of Closure

It’s hard to believe that The Vampire Diaries will air its final episode tomorrow night after eight years on our television screens.

We’re definitely not ready to say goodbye to our favorite Mystic Falls residents, but we’re excited to see how the story ends.

We caught up with executive producer Julie Plec, who gave us some scoop about what we can expect in the final hour. Check it out below.

Don’t forget – The Vampire Diaries series finale airs Friday, March 10 @ 8PM on The CW.

JJJ: You and [fellow EP] Kevin Williamson had written an ending to the show years ago. Did you deviate from that at all? And if you didn’t, were you temped to?

Julie Plec: We did deviate from it, plot-wise because things change over eight years, not the least of which is Nina leaving after season six, which made certain things difficult – in terms of getting ourselves to that ending, what we had planned. But mostly I think, we landed in season two where we had the epiphany of an emotional response we wanted to evoke when we brought the series to a close, and we absolutely stayed true to that.

JJJ: At what point did you decide to kill someone off in the finale? Tell me about that decision.

JP: It just sort of felt that when you’re dealing with life and death things – in this case, will Mystic Falls burn? Will it survive? – someone is going to have to be murdered in the fight against the bad guy. So there were a lot of discussions about who that should be. And the choice of who it was, was made entirely out of character, bringing a character full circle to its proper conclusion.

'Liv & Maddie' Showrunners Want a DCOM Just As Much As You Do!

'Liv & Maddie' Showrunners Want a DCOM Just As Much As You Do!

Let’s face it, we’ve dreamed about a Liv and Maddie movie since the moment Space Werewolves was mentioned on the hit Disney Channel show.

So, why not make it happen? It seems like showrunners John D. Beck and Ron Hart are on board with it.

“We would’ve loved to done a DCOM about the shows we created inside the show, like Space Werewolves, or Voltage,” they admitted to JJJ when we spoke with them recently.

John and Ron added, “We were just as invested in those characters in those certain episodes and the people who were playing it. which made it fun and fresh for our audience to see a whole other set of characters who they got to spend a little time with. That would’ve been a lot of fun too.”

So, which DCOM should be made first? Voltage or Space Werewolves? Let us know in the comments!

EXCLUSIVE: Becky G Tells JJJ She Wanted to Cry Over ‘Power Rangers’

Yesterday was a busy day for JustJaredJr. Not only did we dance the night away at a secret Ed Sheeran concert in New York City, we celebrated the upcoming Power Rangers movie with Becky G and RJ Cyler in Florida.

When radio station Y100 invited us to spend the afternoon at their exclusive fan event, we jumped at the chance.

Becky G — who plays Trini Kwan, the yellow Power Ranger — got emotional when we asked her what it was like to get the call from producers telling her she was cast in her first big feature film.

“My initial reaction was to cry,” the 20-year-old star confessed. “And I don’t cry often!”

She added that the hardest part of prepping for the role was the diet. “Honestly, I was mad I couldn’t go to KFC,” she joked, “which I still do!”

Inside, Becky G tells you the heart-wrenching reason she ended up sobbing during the filming of the movie…
