The Vampire Diaries is an American supernatural–fantasy horror/drama television franchise developed by Kevin Williamson & Julie Plec, based on the book series of the same name by L. J. Smith. The original TV series ran from 2009–2017, while The Origianls ran from 2012-2018, and Legacies started in 2018.

Plot

The series follows the life of 17-year old Elena Gilbert (Nina Dobrev), who falls in love with a centuries-old vampire named Stefan Salvatore (Paul Wesley) and his brother Damon Salvatore (Ian Somerhalder), also a vampire. As a result, this draws Elena and her friends into the supernatural world of Mystic Falls, where it is plagued by vampires, werewolves, witches, doppelgängers and Original Vampires. As a result, Elena and her friends have made enemies including the Original Vampires/THE Mikaelson Family and Katerina Petrova and later on Silas and the Travelers. The series also focuses on the lives of Elena's friends and other inhabitants of the fictional town of Mystic Falls, Virginia.

The Originals centers on Klaus Mikaelson and the Original Family of vampires, as he makes his returns to the supernatural crucible that is the French Quarter of New Orleans, a town he helped build centuries ago, and is reunited with his diabolical former apprentice Marcel. At first, it is only Klaus, Elijah, and Rebekah but as the show goes on people thought dead as well as new faces appear.

Legacies follows Hope Mikaelson, daughter of Klaus Mikaelson and Hayley Marshall, two years after the events in The Originals. Now 17 years-old, Hope attends the Salvatore School for the Young and Gifted where other young supernatural beings learn to control their abilities and impulses.
