Vampires are multiplying like hamsters up in this piece! And now, they’ve infiltrated the CW with the new series The Vampire Diaries set to premiere this fall.
Writer/producer Kevin Williamson screened the pilot episode of the series at Comic-Con to a passionate audience. He was quick to point out that he had no intention of stepping on any sparkly Twilight toes.
Hearkening back to the good ol’ days of UPN, Williamson told the crowd, “Vampire Diaries has a little bit of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, in it with creatures that go beyond vampires.”
The star of the series, Paul Wesley joked of his vampire heartthrob status, “Nine of 10 girls in this rom would throw me under a bus to get to Edward Cullen.” Silly boy! That’s not how you kill a vampire.
