Extended PromoThe Vampire Diaries Season 4 Extended Promo



This promo is very good. These kids have left high school in the rearview window and taken it up a notch. Nina Dobrev’s Elena Gilbert is now a vampire, or at least on the cusp of becoming one. Interestingly, she’s not fully turned and Bonnie is on a mission to use her powers and go into the after life to pull Elena out of death. Like me, most of the cast is wondering exactly how this will be done.


The truth? I hope Bonnie succeeds. Elena Gilbert served as a great go between in The Vampire Diaries. She’s of the mortal living, but entrenched in the world of the immortal dead. Without that contrast, this show doesn’t work as well for me.


The Vampire Diaries has to be careful here. The show is in trouble folks. Season one of The Vampire Diaries opened to 4.91 million viewers. The show averaged 3.60 million viewers a week over the season. In season two, The Vampire Diaries opened the season with 3.17 million viewers, and averaged  3.17 million per episode. Last season the show opened with 3.10 million viewers and averaged only 2.77 million viewers a week. As you can see, the shows ratings have been in serious decline. They need this season to really work.


I think this promo starts this season off in the right direction. Look for the return of The Vampire Diaries on Thursday, October 11, 2012 at 8pm on The CW. 4×01 is titled, ‘Growing Pains.’
