The rumors are out, and that means The Vampire Diaries might be back (or so we hope). After the eighth season of The Vampire Diaries ended in 2017, fans of the show were begging the producers for just one more season! But, the internet is like a virtual modern-day game of “Telephone.” Remember the game when we would whisper a word or phrase in a circle and see if it would come out differently?
Well, unfortunately for us, the news of TVD Season 9 coming out might have been a game of “Telephone.” But … maybe not! There is a rumored Season 9 of TVD coming out in March 2021 according to a quick Google search and some viral TikTok videos. But with some deeper digging, it’s nearly impossible to find any confirmation of a ninth season of The Vampire Diaries, so let’s look into the real story.
There is no confirmation that Season 9 of ‘TVD’ will come out.
Unfortunately for us, there’s been no official confirmation of TVD Season 9. Even though there seems to be a photo of Netflix saying, “New Season Coming March 2021,” floating around, this could be photoshopped. (Sorry to debunk the joy!) A quick Google search shows a few websites, claiming a new season will be released in March 2021, but there are no references to reputable sources.
When in season 8 finale aired, all of the fans kept asking if Netflix and CW network would bring back the show with another season. Julie Plec announced that after a long discussion, they decided to conclude the show. Still now, other than this, we don’t get any confirmation. But if it happens then, we will see season 9 of TVD in March 2021. However, it’s just an expectation.
However, in case, if Vampire Diaries Season 9 is renewed ever in the future, it is likely to be comprised of 22 episodes. This number is expected as the majority of previous seasons consisted of 22 episodes. Only Season 4 and 8 consisted of 23 and 16 episodes respectively. Some claim that Kevin Williamson and Julie Plec will direct the ninth season.
The Vampire Diaries Season 9 seems to have very little chance in the future. Stay with The Trends 24 to get the latest updates on the television series.
