What Will Season 3 Bring For ‘The Vampire Diaries’?

We’re having season 2 DVD giveaway (full announcement) due to launch of our ‘Vampire Diaries Season 3 Countdown’ Facebook page! You can automatically enter the contest if you “Like” our page (page is here), like button can also be found down below. Winners will be announced in the summer, when DVD gets released.


Season 3 of The Vampire Diaries will be ‘The Year of the Originals’. Fans everywhere have been speculating and searching for any clues to what will happen when the show returns to the CW in the Fall. Here’s what Executive Producer Julie Plec had to say about TVD’s future.
  • One of the most talked about rumors is the original Petrova girl, whose blood sealed Klaus’ curse over 1000 years ago. During the last flashback episode, “Klaus”, Elijah~Daniel Gillies said that Katerina reminded him of someone. Julie confirms he was referring to the original Petrova girl and offers this,
“Hopefully one day we’ll meet her. No promises, tho. Too soon to tell.”
  • Don’t count Elena’s other BFF Meredith, from LJ Smith’s books, out just yet. She is caught in ‘book-limbo-land’ for now, but time will tell.
  • Damon and Elena are embarking on a whole new chapter.
    “In that moment, Damon needed her forgiveness and her love, and she needed to give it to him. It was very pure for her. There’s a lot that happened in that moment, and season 3 is gonna be about exploring what it means to her, what it means to Damon, and certainly what it means to the Damon-Elena-Stefan relationship.”

  • Look’s like the story isn’t over for Elijah or Klaus.
    “All I can say to you is, as I’ve said before, these two actors are extraordinary. The story of the Originals is probably longer than the Bible and we can’t wait to dig into it. The rules of the hybrid and all that comes with being the hybrid, we’ve just scratched the surface.”

  • Now that Sheriff Forbes is in the loop about her vampire daughter Caroline, what’s next for Caroline, Tyler and the other supporting cast?
    “The series regular family is returning in full effect. Hopefully, we’ll be able to really dig deeply into Tyler’s friendship and blossoming romantic interest in Caroline and her potential interest in him — and also the conflict maybe between the sheriff and the mayor once the mayor comes into the loop, and the lengths they’ll each go to protect their children and possibly try to keep their children away from each other.”

  • Damon has been on an existential journey all season and has only begun to scratch the surface. Plec sheds some light,
    “He’s struggling with his humanity…. his suffering is because it’s all so new to him. he’s run from it for so long, it’s like a new skin for him. he won’t always know the right way to handle it. He will **** up majorly. he will revert. he will feel remorse…. he will change for the better, and then sometimes he won’t be able to help himself. He’s on a journey. Damon absolutely matters, but the road from villain to hero is a bumpy one. It’s not always going to be pretty.”
  • The question is, what is next on Stefan’s road?

    “He’s sort of bitch-slapped by his own addiction, so to speak. And now he sacrificed the thing that he needed the most, which was his sense of strength and free will and will power over this problem that he has. There is moderation, and then there is sustained abuse. I think we just watched the beginnings of Stefan crossing over into that. We’re all very energized about Stefan’s new journey and how Klaus plays into that and how that’s all gonna turn out.”

  • Will Alaric take on a more parental role for Jeremy and Elena?

    “I think that what we were saying at the end of the episode is, we’re teeing up a new dynamic that is a family dynamic between Alaric and Jeremy and Elena.”

  • What’s in store for Bonne and Jeremy? Plec teases,
    “As Bonnie was told when she was tapping into that kind of magic to do something that goes against the laws of nature, there will be consequences. We’re just getting a slight tease of what those consequences are. For her, the unimagined consequences were worth it. Now if Vicki and Anna end up sticking around and remaining in Jeremy’s world in whatever way it is that they’re appearing, then in addition to supernatural consequences, obviously, there’s gonna be some romantic consequences as well. We’re taking the love triangle to a whole ‘nother level. Without a doubt, this is a story that is teeing up for our audience a whole new element of what we’re going to be doing on this show.”
With the impending tragedy of the season 2 finale and a new season to look forward to, Julie offers the best advice to date. When asked what to do when a TVD favorite is killed off, Plec sincerely and simply replied,
“Cry like we do.”
As The Vampire Diaries delves deeper into their supernatural lore in Season 3 we can only expect great things from the show that never seems to disappoint!
Will Nina being pulling triple duty next season. To what ends will Stefan have to go to find a cure for Damon and is there room in Elena’s world for Meredith? Discuss below TVD Family! I want to know what you think!

    season 2 was amazing just the way it was !! i liked every moment in it .. and it wasnt about damon and elena !! just because elena kissed him at the end that doesnt mean it was about the 2 of thim !! .. i know i like to see caroline and bonnie and matt ofcorse !! but the show was perfect even when we didnt see thim alot .. just my opinion :)
    ” sorry 4 my bad english ” :P

  • Swilson32

    Yeah but from what i gathered he had already killed his other family the same way before he broke the curse

  • Alisakisa

    all of these information is just making me want to see this season more and more.

  • Casaalaturata

    I think if Elena will try to find Stefan! And if they will pe togeter.

  • lory

    i want that caroline remains with taylor and i want to be only 3 season,not 4 ,5,6,etc.because will be  a boring story

  • Leah McClei

    I hope that Damon and Elena end up together. That’s where it is going in the books, but we all know that the books aren’t even a guideline for this show.  I love the originals. I loved Elijah. He needs to come back and be mayor. Jeremy has lost his parents and his aunt. Elena has lost two sets of parents and her aunt, Alaric will be good for them as a fatherly figure. Lets just hope they don’t lose him too.  Stefan got himself into a lot of trouble, hopefully he can get himself out of it without people getting hurt too badly. Another Petrova?!  Oh no. Nina will have to play 3 characters… that all look the same..  and most likely interact. I know some people talk to themselves but this is crazy.  xD  The Vampire Diaries is the best show on the air and I cannot wait until September.

        I am not happy with what poor darling Stefan is being put through. He is always helping everyone . I am completely in love with Stefan ( Paul Wesley). He has amazing abs and shoulders, beautiful eyes. And, that tatoo is wonderful. 
        I agree that these three characters are the focus of this show and you must never kill off any of these three. If you ever did I would stop watching this show immediately.
        As for  Stefan and Elena They have to be  together again, tell Damon to get over it.

  • Sam

    I love how the story line is going.  I love Elena with Damon and Elena with Stefan which is different from any other show.  Most shows you pick which people you want together.  Because Damon and Stefan are so different yet loveable I just can’t choose who I want her with, which makes is so exciting to watch.  I also love the developing relationship between Tyler and Caroline.  I really didn’t like Caroline at all before but now that she is with Tyler I am actually interested when something about them comes on.  I would love to hear more about what it was like in 1864 as well as in Klaus’ time.  I find it interesting to actually learn how we got to the current point in time.  Keep up the great work I will always be sure to be in front of my Tv on Thursday night!

  • Wickedmiss1

    I totally agree with you Rae!

  • Wickedmiss1

    I love the book shadow souls, damon and elena really get it on then!!! lol…

  • Wickedmiss1

    True, I don’t know what they were thinking! choosing Stefan!

  • Wickedmiss1

    True, I don’t know what they were thinking! choosing Stefan!

  • Wickedmiss1

    Interesting Q Sabina. I never really paid that close attention.

  • Wickedmiss1

    Interesting Q Sabina. I never really paid that close attention.

  • Wickedmiss1

    I so agree!!! just one wild carefree day/night of delena!

  • Wickedmiss1

    I hope so too, because so far Stefan’s character has been a real disappointment. So lame….

  • Wickedmiss1

    Yip,  damon is definitely still somewhat alive at the end of midnight and I wont compare the series with the novels at ALL!!!

  • Wickedmiss1

    NO DAMON,  NO  Vampire Diaries!!! The guy is the heart of the show. They’ll lose millions of fans if Damon leaves the show!

    This show is famous for very hot brothers! First they give us Damon and Stefan now Klaus and Elijah! CW, I love you :)
    Anyway, as for Season 3, I think we can all tell that it’s definitely not going to disappoint. Several head-scratchers (Thanks for that by the way CW! -.-) like, why Klaus suddenly wants Stefan on his team and out of MF, Jeremy’s sudden ability to see his dead-undead girlfriends, where the human-vampire-werewolf love triangle (Matt, Caroline and Tyler, people, not the Twilight one! :] ) is going to go and what is going to happen after the most epic moment for Delena fans everywhere- i.e. when Elena kissed Damon in the season finale-, are definitely going to make the wait for S3 an unbearable one!
    Just thinking about it is making me crazy.
    Ah, Vampire Diaries.
    Love sucks!
    RAWR :[

  • Tory

    ANOTHER Petrova dople ganger! it’s all very intriguing, I wish september would hurry up already

  • Emilsky2001

    hi y’all i know your not gonna approve of what i”ll say but can we put some some mermaids on the shwo hahahah just some random thought after Astrid Ferbeges interview in Pirates four they say that mermaids are the new vampires hahahah. Please dont hate

  • Sweden

    I wish that Elena would pick Damon but then again Stefan and Elena is the center and the others are only there to make a story around them. At least that’s what I think…

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100000446953417 Augustina Romine

    I sooo hope that in season three Damon and Elena run off together i love Ian’s idea. I really wanna see them experiment with that it would be interesting. I just wanna see Damon and Elena together!!! <3 :) 

  • love vampier diaries

    woowww i cant waite to see all thisss

  • hsaidjk

    still, they picked him and all, but if i had a brother, and a girl picked me over him, and I knew the two of them had a history, i would have asked if it was ok for me to be with her first… And I would never have started dating her if I knew he still had feelings for her.

  • Punkedsparrow

    OMGOSH, it’s completely frustrating how people are so against Stefan. I agree that Damon is epic, his character is much more interesting, but Stefan’s character is interesting too. The only problem: they havent explored it yet! Season 3 will be all about Stefan! Has anyone wondered how and why Stefan decided to stop drinking human blood completely??!!  I have…i want Julie Plec and Kevin Williamson to explore his character a lot more, and yes he does need to fly solo for sometime. Stefan really loves Elena, but he LOVES Damon more than anything. He sacrificed himself to save his brother! Now, everyone needs to understand that Stefan is not the one to blame….everyone thinks he’s flawless…but Stefan is definitely flawed! He turned Damon into a vampire, and am sure has a lot more secrets that Elena doesnt know about. Can’t wait for season three :)

  • Walteribgos

    season 2 was really fantastic..

  • FAnatic

    Oh i really really want to see meredith involved in the show ! & damon and elena FTW!

  • Saadiagull

    isnt klaus going to die because he used the knife to kill elijah?
    “all demons who kill using the knife will die too”–crying wolf

  • Vampirelover

    WOWWWW!!! Cant Waitt!!!! 

  • crazyy

    not trying to argue..jus felt like pointing out..they may think tht..but everyone has different opinions…I love ian, not a big an of paul but… i jus wanted to say tht.. but thats really cool tht you have friends that ere extras!!!

  • ele

    i just can’t wait 4  season3 to start

  • http://www.facebook.com/Davik3 Kylliams Kitkat Ayala

    It will be good because of everything thats happening At first I really didnt like it but then I started to get the hang of it and open my mind to new expierences thats when I realized that everything they  do is good because in a serie not every thing has to be about the same thing just open your mind and you will see things in a different way

  • Antneyntasha

    Does anyone know when the next season will start????

  • Lambertgurl

    NO MEREDITH!

    NO,NO,NO,NO,NO! I swear that if Meredith shows up and is ANYTHING like she is in the book, then I will be very very disappointed. Meredith was annoying and stupid and conceited in the books. She thinks her sh** doesn’t stink, so to say. I really hope that she doesn’t become major, if at all.

    As for the Originals….i am ALL for that. I love Klaus and his evil ways. ^_^. Something about him makes me crazy.

    Don’t care much for Bonnie, either because she doesn’t particularly care about Elena the way she pretends she does. She tried to kill the people Elena loved and I will never forgive her character for that. For me to ever ‘like’ her character, she needs to be A LOT nicer to Damon. ^_^ but I love the whole Caroline/Tyler thing. That’ll be interesting. 

    And I cannot wait to see Stefan get all dark and Ripper. I think itll look good on him.

  • Sdpikachu5

    I really hate the whole ‘Stefan-being-bad-and-killing-people-addiction-problem-thingy’ that’s going on now. I miss the old Stefan, and want him to come back sooooo bad! And I really don’t like Damon and Elena together.. it pisses me off, they’re better off as just friends. I like Caroline and Tyler together, I also like Caroline more as a vampire… she’s not as annoying. I must admit that I sobbed like a baby in almost every other TVD episode… it’s really emotional for some reason. Urgh! Stefan be prince charming again, Please!

  • Wildcaty6

    I love vampire diaries and am glad that Elena and Damon get together and its about time.They should just get rid of stephan he is such a bore.

  • AlexG

    couldn’t agree more.

  • http://www.facebook.com/ellen.speybrouck Ellen Speybrouck

    Absolutely agree!

  • http://www.facebook.com/jkcurry31 Jen Kay Curry

    omegosh so crazy ready to find what happens between elena damon, and stefan. I love triangle coming up please and thank you. I hope caroline’s dad makes a quest appearance it would be so epic. all in all can’t wait for season 3

  • Trizar

    This is just so cool. The original Petrova? This is just so interesting, I don’t think I can wait until fall for this. Although no choice has been actually given for an alternative?
    What do you think will happen to Stefan and Elena?
    I don’t like Damon to be with Elena, because Elena is just for Stefan, but I do like Damon loving Elena and the whole Elena being confused about Damon thing. I hope they have some sort of romantic something every once in a while, but in the long run, Damon would always be in love with Katherine, and Stefan with Elena. Practically, they get the same girl. (Well, same face for the matter.)

  • HMiki16

    Thanks this infos…. This is my favourite serial… i dont want wait the season … i want now the new season…
    I think this is the world best serial forever!!!!! :)

  • Ammbers

    I Want to see Elijah return in S3 there is still enormous appeal an potential in the character

  • Saraaude

    yes damon is in pain , but elena loves stefen . as much as she love him but she doesnt know that earlier . just like what happened in twilight saga . belle loves edward and also jacob but her love for e is much muhc stronger , anyways do anyone believe in vampire?

  • Saraaude

  • erin91210

  • Februarycutegirl

  • TheOriginalsFan

     Well i don’t get it..everybody says that elijah is not going to be in TVD for a long time, but i love him so much that i can’t imagine TVD without him..i couldnt stand that klaus or anyone else kills him..please don’t take elijah from us..
    P.S the originals are amazing! :D

  • LungileLuthuli13

    I think Damon sucks. why would you get it on with your botehr’s girlfiend. what of person or ‘vampire’ would do that. and i almost fogot, i HATE Damon with a passion

  • Emily York

    Becouse u can only kill a origniel with a dagger then is season 3
    The mother of the originals come back then she uses Elena’s blood and cast a spell so
    If one original gets staked all of the originals die so the reson klus doesn’t die is bacouse the mother had not made that spell. U really need to watch season 3 to understand everything.
