8 – The Vampire Diaries

How many seasons are available on Netflix?

All eight seasons of The Vampire Diaries are currently available to stream on Netflix. The show never had a ninth season, but the universe extends into two spin-off shows: The Originals, and the new series Legacies.

What’s it about?

Based on The Vampire Diaries book series, this popular show on The CW first follows Mystic Falls high school student Elena (keeper of the diary), who has recently lost both her parents. She befriends the new kid in school, Stefan Salvatore, but she doesn’t know that he’s actually a 162-year-old vampire, and when his older brother Damon comes to town, things get increasingly complicated, eventually leading to a love triangle. The show also explores the politics behind the original founding families of the town and the influence that their descendants currently have on Mystic Falls.

Why might Shadowhunters fans like it?

This one is obviously for the Shadowhunters fans out there who especially love vampires and romance-driven stories, but you’ll also be meeting werewolves, witches, hybrids, and ghosts throughout the series. Mystic Falls isn’t anything like NYC, but there’s a strong supernatural community with quite the history. If you particularly like family drama between supernatural species and love triangles with some elements of fantasy, this is a show for you.
