‘The Vampire Diaries’ Season 8 Premieres October 21
Get out your calendars, CW fans — we now know when your favorite shows return this fall!
It seems the biggest takeaway from the big reveal is that fans will have to wait the longest they ever have for new episodes of TVD, with the show set to come back Friday, October 21.
The earliest the show has ever begun airing a new season is September 9 while the latest, up until now, was October 11. This is 10 extra days, guys!
This list of premiere dates is also a sad reminder that The Originals Season 4 is being held until midseason, which was announced at the network’s 2016 Upfronts.
Execs promise they “believe quite a bit” in the series so, for now, we can rest easy.
