Julie Plec Talks About Death And Season 3 of ‘The Vampire Diaries’

3 years ago, by

March 26, 2011

Anyone who loves and supports The Vampire Diaries knows that nothing is forever, especially where the characters are concerned. They get briefed from jump that their time on the show can be seriously limited. Creator/EP Julie Plec spoiled to Wetpaint that the fans will absolutely see some deaths by the end of season 2.

“Anything can happen at any time, and not everybody’s going to like it.” Doing the math leaves us with 20 or so people currently calling Mystic Falls their home. So, in true TVD fashion Plec goes on to say that, “A percentage of them will not make it to Season 3.”


Plec also spoils about future episodes and how they will delve into the true meaning of immortality and what it can do to the soul.

“Something that we’ll explore in the future once we get into Klaus and the world of the Originals and future seasons, is that it’s true immortality,” teases Plec. “How lonely must that be?”

    I don’t get it.. Is there going to be a season 3 or not?

  • http://www.spoilersguide.com/ Matej

    Should be, show is a cash cow for the CW…

  • Aoifethornton06

    yeah there is but not every charcater will live for it

  • Rlhash

    whos gonna die??:(

  • Nikki

    I wish Damon and Elena would hook at at least once. Even if it is a drunken mistake. I wish he would just compel her to hook up with him or something. I can’t wait to see that! Maybe he should just hook up with Katherine and pretend it is Elena. haha Either way, i’m so tired of the holier than thou Stefan. Damon is where it’s at! Jenna and Alaric are boring. Jeremy and Bonnie are cute. I would love to see Caroline find someone new and refreshing. Matt is boring and Tyler is a dog.

    I have a feeling that they’re gonna kill Tyler :-/
    and John too (which is good!) or Isobel…
    that’s my best guess…if they kill someone else it would be too cruel…
    i could do without Matt though…

  • http://twitter.com/J3len4 J3len4

    and please, it’s time for some Damon/Elena action :D can’t wait!

  • lauren watson :D <3

    I’m gonna cry if Stefan n dies coz i have a feeling that one of the main characters is going to be killed out of it and Elena and Stefan are so cute together <3 omg Paul Wesley who plays Stefan is so fit man! <3 and im really looking forward to find out if there is going to be a season 3 :D <3 xxx

  • Cindy

    Someone/ someones are going to die? Hmm…I strongly hope that it is John Gilbert he is my least favorite and then maybe
    Matt cause he doesn’t do much but then again it could just be another recurring character

  • http://twitter.com/J3len4 J3len4

    I think Tyler’s going to die because Carina MacKenzie twitted this a few hours ago:
    @cadlymack @M_Trevino dying.

  • Jade<3

    everyone no’s its jeremy whos gonna die i’m so sad :[

  • Jade<3

    jeremy

  • tabby

    Jeremy is not going to die. He’s got a ring to keep him from dying. My best guess is Matt. :0)

  • tabby

    nah…it’s Matt.

  • Mandy (:

    Stefan won’t die, he’s one of the three main characters in the love triangle. He won’t be dead, maybe held hostage like in the books, but not dead. Be sure that Elena, Damon, and Stefan are safe. :)

  • Mandy :)

    But a vampire killing him can chop off his hand then precede to kill him a la Katherine.
    Or they can compel him to take it off.
    Point is it really doesn’t make him that invincible :P

  • Cindyduarte24

    omg there should most defentliy be a season 3. it would suck so bad if there wasent. its one of the most popular show there is.
    but i do hope matt dies that was really messed up what he did to Caroline. bastered hope he dies slowly and painfully lol

  • Him

    Well that isn’t going to happen..

  • Him

    Well that isn’t going to happen..

  • Ann

    at least there will be a season 3. :) lol

  • Carlo

    i just hope bonnie and caroline stay alive. i hate it when friends die. besides, they’re pretty exciting characters. i wish jenna doesn’t die too. it’s bad enough that elena lost her adoptive parents before the beginning of the story and then her biological mom because of klaus. jenna is the only reliable parent figure she’s got left.

    regarding the salvatore brothers, i don’t think any of them would be killed off. they’re main characters along with elena.

    i wouldn’t mind jeremie dying though. he’s quite boring. same thing goes for matt.

  • Ophieroye

    i think it’s Matt who is going to die

  • Pocohantis

    i think it’s matt who is going to die

  • Pocohantis

    yes

    I strongly have a feeling that Matt or Caroline is going to die….I loved Caroline :(

  • iShY

    No, that would be Jenna…

  • iShY

    I rather go for Damon and Elena…:D

  • Thoughts2am

    could be all 3…

  • Vampdiariesfan

    I can’t wait for episode 21 and 22 (; Jenna is now a Vampire and I hope Klaus doesn”t kill her!! Damon and his werewolf bite.. I HOPE HE DOESN’T DIEE!! :’( That would be soooooooooo sad. Elena is with Klaus and man I hope he doesn’t kill her in episode 21 in the sacrofice..

    I think Matt should die he is really boring and he knows about Caroline and is lying about it ?!
    Tyler is back and I think Caroline and he should get together !!

    I hope Elena,Stefan,Damon,Bonnie,Caroline,Jerramy,Elijah,Tyler,Alaric or Jenna and maybe Katherine DONT DIEE THEY ARE THE BEST! !! (; And I think John can go die in a hole !

  • TVDlover

    I think Damon is like Klues because he didnt seem to worried about the werewolf bite.

  • Cmmo93

    oh wow thats a very interesting thought, never thought of that

  • Blue

    He does mind the bite, believe me. Damon’s just good at hiding his feelings, like always. Plus, at the moment there are more important things going on in his opinion. He would die to save Elena, so you can’t really believe he’s going to whine about some “unimportant” werewolf bite..
    The only thing I hope is that Caroline stays alive: I like her so much.. If Jenna dies, it would of course be really sad, but really I hate that she becomes a vampire now if she doesn’t die…poor Rick…history repeating itself. And I hope that Damon will be cured again in this season, otherwise it will be a long time to wait…

  • anna

    i think that Jenna and John will die!!!!

  • vampgirl

    i want Caroline to be with Tyler!!! <3 Tyler, but <3 Damon soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo much mooooooooreeeeeeee GOD Damon's H.O.T!!!!!

  • Natasha

    @Laya I really don’t think Damon will die. No one knows for sure that a werewolf bite will kill a vamp. Rose didn’t die from the bite, Damon mercy staked her while she was in a dream (One of my FAVORITE episodes BTW). They’ve already debunked the Sun and Moon Curse as being fake, so in true TVD style a miraculous cure, or epic recovery will happen when season 3 returns in the Fall~September. Thanks for posting:)!!

  • Strawberrygirl1960

    i have nt seen the sun alos rises yet but i think damon is going to die! :-(

  • Sophie_vigus

    nooo the werewolf jewels died n jenna diess ndd john gilbert dies is such a good episode :)

  • ash27

    no he don’t die, jules jenna and john die. (I’m sad about jenna but not the other two)

  • Meggz

    The people I would hate to see die would be Damon, Stephan, Tyler, and Matt. I think it’s because I read the books that I love Matt, but in all honesty, he’s not that great of a character in the show. I’m thinking Caroline, Catharine and maybe Bonnie, but she could be a lot of help in later episodes. Plus, they did that fake dying thing so it’ll be stupid to actually kill her. Out of the guys, I’m thinking Alaric, Matt, and Tyler.

  • Meggz

    Kay, I just realized I practactly typed the all of the remaining main characters xD if I had to pick a few I would say Caroline and Jeremy die.

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_CXUJI4BLIOUKWCACM6CUP3KY5Y Brigitta

    i’m happy because there will be a season 3… but i really hope damon will be alive… i think if he died i won’t watch vp any more… :( he just can’t died..

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_CXUJI4BLIOUKWCACM6CUP3KY5Y Brigitta

    i’m happy because there will be a season 3… but i really hope damon will be alive… i think if he died i won’t watch vp any more… :( he just can’t died..

  • Meag

    I don’t want anyone to die, except Klaus (and maybe Alisha)… and than they can get a new enemy in season 3! But that’s obv not gonna happen :(

  • Juantia15

    yes there is

  • Smarterthanmandy

    sorry you theory is flawed you see jeremy is on vervien or how ever you spell it. so in turn he cannot be compelled however a vampire could take the ring off but only if they knew he was wearing it or what kind of ring it was and the chances of that are slim to none other than the salvator brothers and kathrine.

  • Chistinal13

     omg cant wait till this fall
    what do u think will happen to jeremy 
    nothing like a house full of dead exes to ruin the mood

  • Life Knight

    of course there will be .. they didn’t cover all the books yet still long way to go  

  • Shark

    I can’t wait for the third season. :| grr.

  • Guest

    i hope that elena and damon never get together he is an ass and stefan belongs with elna and i hope stefan doesnt go on a rampage with klaus but i still wouldnt want damon to diecuz you ppl are right he does make the show and if the producers se this please make sure stefan doesnt go all bad again because if he does i will stop watching cuz i only watch because elena and stefan havent broken up if they were 2 break up permanently i would hate this show and plz dont make damon and elena kiss or hook up that would be a trgedy although caroline and tyler wouldnt be bad or damon and caroline would make a nice couple

  • Mahalia_97

    i agree 

  • Mahalia_97

  • Avery Celestino

    i love to see stefan how really bad he is much more darker than damon… so that elena will break her heart, it is the pay for damon’s cure…unleashed the pure evil of stefan. Damon will realized that without his brother to his life is like a living hell aready!!

  • Sammye89

    yes there is in September 

  • Lil Thang_asw@yahoo.com

    Damon and elena need to hookup already!!!!i think she is xactly wat he needs to stay on the right path. I mean dont get me wrong I like stefan as the good boy bt im curious to see him as the bad boy. Then what if he comes back and finds out that damon and elena are together whoooo thts gonna be one crazy love triangle. Now Bonnie and jeremy are cute but I don etc. think its gonna last. Caroline needs to admit to her feelings for tyler amd let matt go because he’s never gonna be apart of that world and really understand it.

    Maybe stephan will die and Elena will end up with Damon….. that would be cool, stephan is boring, Damon is just so damn gorgeous and sexy, Also he has this mysterious and arrogant side that is such a turn on!
