Exec producer Julie Plec spilled some interesting spoilers abound on The Vampire Diaries' upcoming season 6 in an interview.
Here are the latest:
On Elena's loss of her bestfriend and boyfriend:
We're going to meet up with her again and we're going to see how she's handling herself. She went through a tremendous loss on top of the many losses she's experienced in her life. But this time her coping mechanism is a little different than usual. It'll be a part of her journey to see how she's handling it, what she's doing to deal with it and how she can move on and if she can move on.
On the storyline of season 6:
For me and all the writers, we're so excited because we're telling stories that are driven by character, that are rooted in mystery and suspense more so than big, massive mythology. We've got a great mystery for the year, we've got a great mythology that is just simple enough so that you feel like all the characters are going to be directly impacted by it. It's going to unfold piece by piece over the course of the season. And instead of getting bigger, we're getting smaller in all the right ways.
