Vampire Diaries, The (The CW 2009-2017, Paul Wesley, Ian Somerhalder)

Tapping very much into our current obsession for all things vampiric Vampire Diaries adds something of a teen/young adult vibe to proceedings with its storyline about two brothers Stefan and Damon Salvatore who just happen to be vampires. Returning home to the town of Mystic Falls, Virginia, the pair become strongly enamored with Elena Gilbert – mainly because she looks exactly like Katherine Pierce, a vampire that the boys loved in 1864 but who was entombed by a witch’s spell so many years before.

Season one’s big finish was with a climactic Founder’s Day celebration that ended in a chaos and destruction and the unleashing once again of Katherine as well as possibly spelling the end for Elena’s brother Jeremy who had tried to commit suicide and her friends Tyler, Matt and Caroline were involved in a serious car accident.
