On tonight’s brand new episode of THE VAMPIRE DIARIES, it’s Christmas in Mystic Falls, and, well, things are going down. And while things are dramatic in the present, the show has found a way to make the hour a little bit lighter: viewers will see flashbacks of happier years when the friends were together (and able to actually be in Mystic Falls).

To get a little bit more info about what will be going down, THE VAMPIRE DIARIES executive producer Julie Plec and series star Ian Somerhalder (Damon) shared a little preview of “Christmas Through Your Eyes” with reporters…

For as many changes as THE VAMPIRE DIARIES has made this season, one of the bigger ones was bringing back Alaric — and making him a human after he had compelled Elena to forget her memories of Damon.

On the show’s Atlanta set, THE VAMPIRE DIARIES co-creator Julie Plec talked with reporters about the decision to make Alaric lose his vampirism, plus, she talked about the show’s future, and more…

The Mikaelson’s family drama is heating up in a big way in tonight’s episode of THE ORIGINALS: Kol and Finn are being held against their will by their brothers, Elijah and Klaus. Plus, Rebekah pops back into the picture after she fears her (and Hope’s) cover has been blown. (Not to mention their mother, Esther, has taken Cami…somewhere.)

On the show’s Atlanta set, THE ORIGINALS executive producer Julie Plec, as well as stars Yusuf Gatewood (Finn) and Daniel Sharman (Kol) previewed what’s to come in tonight’s episode, “The Brothers That Care Forgot”…

vampire diaries featured new

Over the past few years, some THE VAMPIRE DIARIES fans have taken to Twitter to express their desire for a “Delena rain kiss.” (Delena = the Damon + Elena coupling, in case you aren’t familiar with ‘shipper shorthand.) And while some fans may have thought it wouldn’t happen, in a recent episode when Damon reflected on his time with Elena, fans got the kiss they had requested for so long.

THE VAMPIRE DIARIES co-creator Julie Plec sat down with reporters, and talked about honoring the fans with that kiss (and how it came to be in that episode), and explained why she loves this Thursday’s brand new episode, “Fade Into You” so much…

THE ORIGINALS: Julie Plec on the Possibility of Rebekah Returning via Flashbacks — or to THE VAMPIRE DIARIES

Comments Off on THE ORIGINALS: Julie Plec on the Possibility of Rebekah Returning via Flashbacks — or to THE VAMPIRE DIARIES

THE ORIGINALS shocked viewers when the show said goodbye to one of the core family members, Claire Holt’s Rebekah, in the March 11th episode of the freshman series. (Holt’s decision to leave the show was what prompted the writers to send Rebekah out of town.)

But THE ORIGINALS is a series that, so far, has relied on flashbacks to the siblings’ past tensions and relationships to explain and expand on what is going on in the present. So before Saturday night’s PaleyFest panel for THE ORIGINALS and its mothership series, THE VAMPIRE DIARIES, I asked THE ORIGINALS boss Julie Plec if it was plausible to expect to see Rebekah in those flashbacks — or if it was possible for her to turn up on THE VAMPIRE DIARIES again.

While crafting a new show can traditionally be a long process, for THE TOMORROW PEOPLE executive producer Julie Plec, this journey goes back to when she first watched the original series.

Before the Paley panel for her new series, I talked with Plec her love of the original, plus what original fans of the series should be looking forward to…

THE ORIGINALS will hit the ground running when the series officially debuts on Thursday, October 3rd at 9 PM on The CW — the first episode will retell some of what viewers learned in the pilot episode (from Elijah’s perspective) and as THE ORIGINALS executive producer Julie Plec told reporters at Comic-Con, viewers will also soon be treated (via flashback) to Klaus and Marcel’s very first meeting.

Take a look at what else she teased…

Julie Plec on Syncing Up THE VAMPIRE DIARIES and THE ORIGINALS, and Retelling THE ORIGINALS’ Backdoor Pilot

August 9, 2013 by  
Filed under The Originals, The Vampire Diaries

THE ORIGINALS may have made its debut as a backdoor pilot during last season of THE VAMPIRE DIARIES, but if potential new viewers missed that, the CW series has a creative way of catching everyone up on what went down — the official first episode of THE ORIGINALS will be retelling what happened in “The Originals” episode of THE VAMPIRE DIARIES from Elijah’s point of view.

“It’s so cool, because it tells you everything that happens when we were watching Klaus do his thing, and meet up with Marcel, and try to get to the bottom of his own mystery [in the backdoor pilot],” THE ORIGINALS/THE VAMPIRE DIARIES executive producer Julie Plec told reporters after the Television Critics Association panel for her new series. “It’s the story of a brother coming into town to try and figure out what happened with his younger, black sheep brother. So he’s kind of playing detective a bit. We get to see scenes that existed in the [backdoor] pilot, but more from Elijah’s point of view. And he believes when he learns of [Hayley’s] pregnancy that it will be that easy to convince his brother to jump on board. So to watch Elijah jump on board and declare how simple it will be, and then to have Klaus reject the baby will be [Elijah’s] powerful moment, as opposed to the pilot where it was Klaus’ powerful moment…and by the last act, we’re moving past that night, and everything we see is new, and it tees up the series.”

Julie Plec on Keeping the Continuity Between THE VAMPIRE DIARIES and THE ORIGINALS

Comments Off on Julie Plec on Keeping the Continuity Between THE VAMPIRE DIARIES and THE ORIGINALS

For years, THE VAMPIRE DIARIES has played by its own rules, where time didn’t need to necessarily to reflect what was going on in the real world, and they could move through things at their own pace. But now with the addition of the show’s new spinoff, THE ORIGINALS, things will be complicated a bit as the shows have the potential to share characters…and as such both will need to remain close in time so continuity isn’t thrown off-kilter.

At Comic-Con, I asked THE VAMPIRE DIARIES/THE ORIGINALS executive producer Julie Plec about maintaining that delicate balance…
