For this the last instalment of this breakdown series on Teen Dramas That Have Shaped Our Lives we look at one of the first vampire dramas to take a hold over audiences worldwide, The Vampire Diaries.
The Vampire Diaries when it burst on to our screens was unlike anything we had ever seen. While indeed it was a tad on the science fiction side of the equation with the aspect of vampires and other supernatural creatures, it also held its own it terms of the teen angst and story arcs that hit home with viewers, so much so that it sprouted a spin-off series in "The Originals". Unfortunately, in recent seasons popularity has waned and with one of the main original actors, in Nina Dobrev, leaving the show it really came as no surprise when the announcement came of its cancellation in 2017. Its pioneering of a new wave of teen dramas will mean that it will be sadly missed.
That's it for this series of the breakdown stay posted for more and TTFN :)
