Vampires have always been an intriguing and fascinating part of myths and lore, and when The Vampire Diaries premiered back in 2009, it came right at the height of the vampire craze that kind of swept up the world.
At first glance, it looked like just another teen drama in the same vein as Twilight. A closer look revealed that, while high in the teenage drama, this was also a series that paid respect to vampire lore, featured strong characters and plenty of twists.
The big audience response fuelled its creators to thrust for a spinoff, The Originals and much to their amusement, it became an infusion of fresh blood in the vampire genre gaining critical acclaim.
