Vampire Diaries tv show coming this fall
May 20, 2009
A show based on L.J. Smith’s Vampire Diaries series will be on the CW this fall.
The four original books were first published in the early 90s, but have been recently re-released (in two volumes). Fans of YA urban fantasy should check them out. I’ll be posting about the recent addition to the series soon.
For the curious, there’s a cast list at IMDB. It doesn’t seem like they’re sticking with the physical descriptions in the books, but I find it hard to care about that sort of thing. Maybe once they get past the story from the books, fans will finally get to see Damon fall for Bonnie…
And of course they’ve decided to put it on Thursdays with Supernatural. That’s about what I expected. But with Bones already on Thursday night and Fringe moving there, Thursdays are getting pretty crowded.
I posted a few scenes from the new series here.
