Good news for Vampire Diaries devotees, the bloodcurdling series could be on screens for a while yet as executive producer Julie Plec has revealed the show could last up to ten series.
The brains behind the supernatural drama spoke exclusively to Entertainment Weekly, admitting that there is no set end-date for the popular TV series.
"[Co-exec] Kevin Williamson and I, early in season 2 in fact, came up with the way we see the series ending," she confirmed.

Plec continued: "I think the question in a show like The Vampire Diaries is really how Damon, Elena, and Stefan's journey ends. We know how we want Elena's journey to end as it relates to both her character and her relationship with the two brothers, and how we want the brothers' relationship with each other to end."
However, although Plec revealed she already has her vision on how the show will end, she expressed doubt on when the finale will happen, adding that as long as Ian Somerhalder (Damon), Nina Dobrev (Elena) and Paul Wesley (Stefan) are happy to continue in their roles the show could go on for some time yet.
"That [series finale] could come in year 6, if [the actors] decided they were ready to move on, or it could come in year 10, you never know," she added.
Well, that should make a lot of fans happy
