Kevin Williamson Ponders The Future Of ‘Vampire Diaries’

Ha!  Check out the ‘who farted?’ face on this chick.

Kevin Williamson may not be a familiar name to you, but he’s made billions torturing teenagers, so now’s a good time to get familiar.

Williamson is the writer/ producer responsible for the Scream movies, Dawson’s Creek, and more recently, The Vampire Diaries.  Now you’re paying attention, right?  The Vampire Diaries is fast becoming the most popular CW show since the networks inception, and has officially been picked up for another 9 episodes.  Bloodsuckers, rejoice!

He recently sat down with the LA Times to discuss exactly what those silly-billies in vampire land will be up to in the upcoming season.

Williamson talks about Vicki’s metamorphosis into a vampire (possibly a not-so-nice one), his anxiety over Twilight and True Blood comparisons, the crummy job Nina Dobrev did during her audition (Has Degrassi taught her nothing?!), and his very accurate assertion that “high school is a horror movie.”

My favorite part is when he compares The Vampire Diaries with Dark Shadows, a show made practically 30 years before his core audience was born.

It just goes to show you just how out-of-the-loop I am that I know more about Dark Shadows than I do about The Vampire Diaries.  In my defense, the show must be confusing because the stars are always trying to explain it.

Also, I just have to say that the vampire over-saturation is reaching critical mass here, people!  Doesn’t anyone care about sea-monsters anymore?  I like my godless mutants well-hydrated.
