Vampire Diaries Season 5, Episode 1 Is Brilliant, Say Executive Producers
Summer vacation didn’t last long for The Vampire Diaries writers. They’ve been back at work a while now, getting the story down for the first few episodes of TVD’s Season 5.
Creator Kevin Williamson — who’s since left for Fox’s The Following — still keeps up with The CW show, and he tweeted that he’d finished the script for Season 5, Episode 1. “Hey guys, guess what fifth season opener I just read? So awesome. Kudos to the brilliant @carolinedries,” he wrote.
Producer Caroline Dries is stepping in to take over the majority of the Vampire Diaries day-to-day duties as executive producer Julie Plec divides her time between TVD and its spin-off The Originals. Don’t ask us when she’ll sleep!
Julie tweeted that she’s equally impressed with what’s taking shape for Season 5. She tweeted, “Work status update: Eps 1 of TVD and TTP are brilliant, thanks to@carolinedries,@GBerlanti and team Klemmer/Rake.” TTP stands for The Tomorrow People, the other show she’s helping to bring to The CW in the fall.
