We’re coming up on the end of the season, which means that EP Julie Plec is in high demand as everyone, fans and journalists alike, tries to figure out what’s going to happen. Luckily for us, Julie has done a bunch of interviews recently shedding some light on what’s to come. The Hollywood Reporter caught up with Julie at the WB TV: Out of the Box exhibit and got some scoop on a potential season four:
“We’ve got a lot going on, a lot of really amazing character moves, great romance, a new mystery, a new villain and I’m really excited about it. We’re feeling pretty good about it already and we’ve only been talking about it for two weeks.”
And watch the video for more about the end of this season:
Meanwhile, over at Entertainment Weekly, Julie gave some episode-specific intel on each of the four remaining season 3 episodes. On this Thursday’s episode, Heart of Darkness (EP319):
“Yes. There is a lot of steam in this episode, and a lot of shirtlessness,” Plec says. “As I said at the Paley event when somebody asked me about romance, this whole season has been so sad. Everybody’s broken up, all these love affairs are unfulfilled, and there’s lots of despair and depression and tragedy. We kick a little romance back into high gear with the return of the show next week.”
There’s another great interview with Julie at HitFix, where she teases the elements that went into filming the season finale:
“No, but we had an underwater unit, a movie-sized underwater unit. We had massive, massive stunts involving an automobile. We have a huge fight sequence. We have a huge horror sequence. And then we have probably the biggest and most substantial series of emotional moments that the entire season has had.”
She also answers the eternal question of whether Elena and friends actually go to school!
