Watch The Vampire Diaries Online - Full Episodes
The supernatural drama The Vampire Diaries tells the story of a high-school girl as she is introduced into a supernatural world of vampires and other mystery creatures. Although the supernatural creatures have long inhabited the small town where she lives, it isn't until a year after her parents' deaths that they make themselves known. The Vampire Diaries is created by Kevin Williamson and Julie Plec and is based upon the novels of the same name written by L.J. Smith. Although based upon these novels, the story presented veers away from the plot in the books and crafts its own compelling story.
The Vampire Diaries follows the life of a young seventeen-year-old girl, Elena Gilbert, as she falls in love with an older vampire named Stefan Salvatore. Perhaps one of the most common issues that arise between the couple is Elena's growing attraction to Stefan's older brother, Damon Salvatore. The first series of the show focuses on the growing relationship between Stefan and Elena, and the complication Damon presents. As the series progresses, it is revealed that the brothers' attraction to Elena is based in part to the resemblance to their mutual past love, Katherine Pierce, the vampire who turned the brothers into the vampires they are. Elena's resemblance isn't just a slight resemblance either, but identical. This turns out to be due to the fact that Elena is the doppelganger of Katherine and is part of a mystical vampire curse.
Throughout the series the viewer watches as Elena deals with the issues that supernatural creatures cause in her life and the danger that can result from being in a relationship with one. In addition to Elena, the series focuses on her group of friends and families as they come to know the hidden secrets of the town and the existence of supernatural creatures. Most notably, the series focuses on the lives of Elena's younger brother, Jeremy Gilbert, her best friends, Bonnie Bennett and Caroline Forbes, and other friends, Matt Donovan and Tyler Lockwood.
The story is set in a small fictional town in Virginia called Mystic Falls. Throughout the course of the series the viewer learns that Mystic Falls has long been home to various supernatural creatures since it was founded in the late 17th century. These supernatural creatures are not limited to just vampires. The series includes witches, werewolves, ghosts and special hybrid creatures. The city of Mystic Falls has a long founded system of politics that centers among the founders of the town. This Founder's Council includes the Gilbert family, the Salvatore family, the Forbes family, the Lockwood family, and the Fells family. The heads of these families are all aware of the town's supernatural inhabitants and often do what they can to protect their small town from the threats these supernatural beings represent.
As the series progresses, the focus shifts from Elena learning about supernatural creatures and events and begins to focus on the role Elena plays as a doppelganger in a mythic quest that can break the restrictions that vampires face. Additional story lines develop that introduce the most powerful vampires ever created, called the Original Family. This Original Family is made up of the first humans ever to be turned into vampires and is the source of all vampires that exist in the show's world.
Starring in the series are Nina Dobrev, Paul Wesley, and Ian Somerhalder as the main love triangle. The supporting cast features Katerina Graham, Candice Accola, Michael Trevino, Zach Roerig, and Steven R. McQueen. Later in the series Joseph Morgan, Matt Davis, and Claire Holt all became prominent characters on the series. The show itself is mainly filmed in Georgia with the town of Covington, Georgia, serving as Mystic Falls. However, the pilot episode was filmed in Vancouver, British Columbia. The Vampire Diaries first aired on The CW and remains one of its most popular and watched shows.
