Nina Dobrev as ElenaWondering what’s in store for season five of The Vampire Diaries given all the changes with Elena and company headed to college and the Originals headed to their own show? Executive producer Caroline Dries sat down with Give Me My Remote for a wide-ranging interview that touched on what the season has in store for virtually all the characters, including how Bonnie deals with her death and what Damon and Elena look like as a couple.

Given all of the changes in season 5 — losing several dynamic characters, graduation, college– what do you feel has been the biggest challenge of the new season?
Caroline Dries:
It’s interesting, a lot of people have asked that [about losing the Original family], but we ended on such a strong cliffhanger with Silas, a huge villain; [and] Katherine is a human, [which is] a huge dynamic character shift for the show. So we’ve had an embarrassment of riches when it comes to villains. It’s not like there’s a huge void in the show, even though the Original vampires added a cool texture to it. The finale just launched us into this whole thing.
I remember at the end of season 1, when we were breaking season 2, we had ended season 1 with like 900,000 cliffhangers, and we sat in the writers room like, “Does anyone have any ideas of how to pick up the pieces?” We had enough on our plate [for season 5]. We knew we wanted Elena to go to college. It’s a new world. We can let THE ORIGINALS go to New Orleans.

At Comic-Con, Phoebe Tonkin spoke with reporters about her character Hayley moving from The Vampire Diaries to The Originals as well as what Hayley’s relationship (or lack thereof) with Klaus will be like going forward. Here’s a taste via Give Me My Remote:

“I think Klaus resents Hayley a little bit,” Tonkin told reporters at Comic-Con. “They didn’t plan on this going any further than a one night stand, and now they’re facing the consequence of that.”

Julie PlecJulie Plec recently appeared at WonderCon and did a few interviews about prom, graduation, the end of the season, and more. At Give Me My Remote, she discusses what prom will be like for Caroline:

“Caroline has waited for this night her whole life — probably only second to her wedding — as she envisioned her perfect senior prom, and very quickly at the top of the episode, she’s miserable. Tyler’s gone, there’s a mishap with her dress, there are things that happen that frustrate her, she’s on the outs with her best friend, Bonnie’s acting weirdly. I think there’s a line somewhere in the episode where Caroline goes, “This prom sucks.” And she gets a nice moment when all is said and done; she gets to experience the perfect prom moment, but it’s short-lived and definitely will get people talking.”

She also talks about Bonnie’s arc, the potential Originals spinoff, the future of the triangle, and more.

And over at SheKnows, Julie talks about everything from Elena and Bonnie’s dark sides to the possibility of dead characters reappearing. She also answers an interesting question about the different types of supernatural creatures in the Vampire Diaries universe.

SK: So far we’ve seen vampires, werewolves, hybrids, witches and warlocks. Can we expect to see any other supernatural creatures in the future?

JP: You know, we keep trying to think of those and weirdly enough, we find ourselves stumped more often than not. There’s our favorite story of Season 1: we tried to make Matt Donovan’s mother a succubus and we shot it and we wrote three scripts about it. When we saw it for the first time we realized this isn’t right. This doesn’t feel like part of our show. It doesn’t feel like we’re in the right scientific world. I’m not saying we’ll not ever see other creatures, but definitely thus far, we are staying grounded in that one zone.
