No rest for the weary! Even though Season 4 of The Vampire Diaries has yet to finish filming, showrunner Julie Plec is already hard at work on Season 5.
She tweeted, “Hang in there, TVD cast and crew. 8 shooting days to go. I love you all. (And in related news, today is Day 1 in the writers room for TVDS5).” Then she added, “Starting Season 5 while still shooting S4 is a perfect example of how single, childless, workaholic show-runners like to rob people of joy.”
We’d like to point out that the timestamps on those tweets were after 2:30 in the morning. Get some rest, Julie!
She didn’t give any hints as to what she’s currently working on, but she did give a bit of Season 4 finale scoop. When a follower asked, “are we gonna see the final ending of the STEDELENA triangle this season,” she replied, “an ending, yes, but never the final.”
That’s pretty interesting, given Stefan’s (Paul Wesley) yearnings to be over and done with Elena (Nina Dobrev). Perhaps he’ll find himself on another road trip out of Mystic Falls. Or maybe things will change drastically if one of them takes the cure.
Either way, we admire Julie’s workaholic tendencies, though we hope she takes a bit of a summer vacation!
