South Africa’s VUZU channel has a series of amusing online promos for the February debut of The Vampire Diaries: “And you thought your boyfriend was weird.” Thanks to Thomas for letting us know.
We’ve also had word from a few readers that The Vampire Diaries is set to begin in Belgium.
We’re not sure of a start date yet, but thanks to @charlieke001, we do know that TVD will be on Saturdays at 6 p.m. on VT4. Update: The show starts on January 23.
And finally, VD Latin America has a new home! Latin American readers can find the latest Vampire Diaries news at VampireDiariesLatinoAmerica.com.
We can finally hit back against those crazy fake synopses for “Bloodlines” that have been knocking around (a long-lost Salvatore sister? Elena a vampire in a hit-and-run turning? Katherine being released and turning Mystic Falls into a buffet with Damon? Nuh uh). The official synopsis has finally been released by the CW. Highlight/mouseover to reveal the synopsis.
[spoiler]STEFAN UNCOVERS A STARTLING CLUE TO THE PAST
Damon takes a trip to Georgia, where he surprises an old flame, Bree and enlists her help to figure out how to open the tomb. In the process, Damon comes face to face with someone who is determined to make him pay for past wrongs. Stefan opens up to Grams in his effort to help Bonnie overcome her fears and accept her powers. While researching his history paper in the public library, Jeremy meets a cute-but-geeky girl named Anna who has her own theories on the folklore of Mystic Falls. When Damon returns from Georgia, Stefan is waiting with news that will change their world.[/spoiler]
Thanks to SpoilerTV for the heads up.
The Vampire Diaries premieres in South Africa on the Vuzu channel in February, and you can see the trailer below:
Finally, ClevverTV has a video spot all about Alaric’s wife, Isobel (though that part about Alaric is only speculation – it hasn’t been revealed whether he’s a vampire or not). It’s a little spoilery in a deductive kind of way, so spoilerphobes should steer clear.
Thanks for the video links, Denise!
There’s a new “TV to Talk About” promo video on the CW’s YouTube channel, featuring clips from the Vampire Diaries. Seen ‘em all before, but it gives a little thrill of excitement to see the clips pop up in the montage.
Media Life Magazine has an interesting article on what the success of Vampire Diaries means for the CW.
“The Vampire Diaries” has been a bright spot for the CW this season. What can the network learn from the show in attempting to develop new programs (beyond the fact that hey, vampires are hot)?
“Vampire Diaries” is actually a relatively well-produced series. It has a solid, compelling story and characters viewers care about.
Look back at the history of WB/UPN–shows like “Buffy,” “Gilmore Girls” and “Dawson’s Creek” were heavy hitters. These were shows with unknowns, but they were beloved by the viewers. It ultimately comes down to story and character.
Sorry, Canadian fans, but CTV have confirmed that they won’t be showing the Vampire Diaries marathon when it’s aired in the USA from December 14th. They will, however, be showing some reruns, so keep an eye on your local listings for further information.
We’ve got some more international air dates for the Vampire Diaries TV series. Fans in the Netherlands should expect to see the show in early 2010 on channel NET 5. Germany will be airing the show starting on January 20th at 9pm on the ProSieben channel (short trailer here). South Africa gets the show in February, 2010 on the VUZU channel (trailer here) – thanks for the info, Johanna!
Finally, a reminder that Zach Roerig will be appearing on VRO tonight at 9pm ET. You can listen to the interview over at BlogTalkRadio when it airs. Update: Unfortunately, due to scheduling conflicts the interview with Zach has had to be rescheduled. We’ll let you know what the new date is when it’s been arranged.
