Vampire Diaries Season 9 Renewal Updates: Why was it Canceled?

Five years ago, we bid goodbye to one of the most loved characters in the history of the television series The Vampire Diaries after Season 8 concluded. The intense vampire drama which was full of romance, comedy, and action left us in tears in 2017, and from then, fans have been asking to know the details about The Vampire Diaries Season 9. The show lovers have kept their hopes high and have urged the makers several times to bring a special sequel or spinoff to this fantastic story.

The Vampire Diaries has been extremely popular with the audience since its novel days, which was written by L.J. Smith when it became the best-selling novel series. The sassy Salvatore brothers were heartthrobs for the female fans whereas the show’s girls were nowhere behind in stealing our hearts. The story beautifully portrayed attractive bloodsucker vampires living an adolescent life, studying in high school with normal humans.

The Sad Ending of Vampire Diaries Season 8

The story started with Elena dating Stefan and by the end, Elena falls in love with Stefan‘s brother Damon. Now it turns into a question of who should turn into a human being from the vampire groups. The story frequently displayed the Originals and Salvatore brothers conflicting on several issues and simultaneously working together sometimes. Klaus, after murdering some of his siblings was able to finally set some feelings in his heart for others after befriending a human, Caroline. Elijah was the most ethical of all the Originals but was stumbling on his path of nobleness after the entry of his evil mother in the latter part of the story.

Stefan who has a diet of Vervain takes the vampire cure out of his blood and injects it into Damon, turning him into a full human. Now death is the only destiny left for Stefan as he starts to age fast and dies, similar to the condition of Katherine in Vampire Diaries Season 7. Damon has to let his brother go forever. Stefan who is now married to Caroline leaves a message for his wife through Elena while bidding a final goodbye to her. He makes us cry by just letting Caroline know that he would love her forever. Lexi who could not stay for long in the story was Stefan’s best friend.

Elena is under a sleeping curse which is broken by her witch friend Bonnie who helps Elena reunite with all her friends. Damon receives a kiss from her and everyone pays their tribute to the memories left behind by Stefan at his memorial. Enzo wanted Bonnie to travel the world and so did she. Everyone slowly found ways to move ahead in their lives like Alaric and Caroline turned their mansion into Salvatore Boarding School where Jeremy works as a teacher. The school also receives a donation of $3 million from Klaus Mikaelson.

Jo spends her life happily with her husband and daughters. The ending scene showed the Vampire Diaries family reuniting in the afterlife. Stefan was back in the afterlife and everyone was happy to see each other together in the after phase of their life. Elena finds peace after her death with Aunt Jenna, mother Miranda, father Grayson, and Uncle John Gilbert.

When Will Vampire Diaries Season 9 Arrive? Is It Cancelled?

Since its last season release in 2017, The Vampire Diaries is still one of the most loved American TV series and fans are curious to know details about its ninth season. Even after five years, they are still hoping that Vampire Diaries Season 9 can be made but it may require huge demands from the audience along with producers’ efforts. It is quite difficult to say if The Vampire Diaries will return or not but as of now, reports suggest that there isn’t much available storyline to continue the show as it came to a justified ending in its The Vampire Diaries Season 8.

Hence, fans may not get any spin-offs or special series for Vampire Diaries, particularly in the near future. The Vampire universe includes The Vampire Diaries along with The Originals and Legacies. Brett Matthews, the showrunner for Legacies told Decider in an interview that there are many more stories to tell in The Vampire Diaries and people may expect them to arrive in form of other shows. Legacies’ fourth season recently concluded on 16th June.

Where Can You Watch All Seasons of Vampire Diaries?

The Vampire Diaries is still available in the United States on the OTT platform, Netflix. March 2020 marked the end of Netflix’s contract with The CW for The Vampire Diaries but Netflix has stated that they will keep The Vampire Diaries accessible on Netflix US for a shorter prolonged time and then it can be removed because the rule states that shows will remain on Netflix for a maximum of five years after the final season has been released. Netflix broadcasted the eighth season of The Vampire Diaries on March 18, 2017.
