Our DVRs are so overloaded with shows, they’re threatening to quit on us. So, we feel your pain if you sometimes forget what’s airing each night of the week. The Vampire Diaries airs Thursdays at 8:00 p.m. on The CW. That should be simple enough, but there are occasional hiatuses , which means reruns and bummed out fans. Never fear! Here are the details.


The Vampire Diaries returned from its most recent break on April 18 with Season 4, Episode 19, “Pictures of You.” Elena (Nina Dobrev) and the rest of the Mystic Falls High School students headed to prom. Even Rebekah (Claire Holt) wore on a lovely dress and went to the dance. 


In Season 4, Episode 20, the backdoor pilot for The Originals will air. Klaus (Joseph Morgan) heads to New Orleans to find out what the latest threat against him means. 


So now you’re all ready for this week! If you’re worried about missing future shows, here’s a handy schedule of when the next several episodes are airing.
