Good news! The Vampire Diaries has eventually
been put out of the torture it's been suffering for the past four seasons.
The show's executive producers Kevin Williamson and Julie Plec have announced that the upcoming eighth season will thankfully be its last.
I enjoyed the first two seasons when the threesome thing was new and hott but after that I stopped trusting the show, especially once Klaus arrived. Urgh, he's one of my worst characters on TV of ALL time.
Both him and the Elena/Katherine/Stefan/Damon threesome were the reasons I stopped watching because they became an endless, cyclical problem that never got solved. Week after week they'd experience the same issues over and over again until I couldn't cope with the yawn-fest anymore.
The trouble was I'd invested so much in it I found it very difficult to stop watching - I was glamoured! Then suddenly, one episode, I couldn't take it anymore. I stopped the madness and I've never looked back. It's left me with scar though because whenever I see or hear the name Klaus I have a rant. Needless to say I've never gone anywhere near his Originals spin-off.
Season 7 of Vampire Diaries ends on Vuzu Amp next week Wednesday (3 August) and Season 8 starts in America on 21 October. It's going to air on Vuzu Amp at the end of the year or early 2017 and will go on for way too long - there are 16 episodes in the final season.
