Don’t panic. We don’t think a fifth season of The Vampire Diaries is up for much debate. TVD is currently The CW’s number one show, and if our obsession is any indication (we like to think it is), it’s highly likely to have a fifth season — and hopefully, a sixth. If we were in charge, it would never end. After all, almost the entire cast lives forever at this point, right? At least their characters do. CGI can help the actors out when needed.
Creator Kevin Williamson has also said he believes the show could wrap up every storyline in six seasons.
So to sum things up: We’re very hopeful that at this time next year, we will be on the edge of our seats waiting for the show to return from yet another winter hiatus. Odds are, someone will have just tried (and failed) to kill Klaus (Joseph Morgan), and another someone we love will have just died. But if being obsessed with the world of TVD has taught us anything, it’s to expect the unexpected. Could the unthinkable happen? At this time next year, could we be watching Vampire Diaries DVDs, forced to reminisce about those supernatural days of yore? Sound off below!
