Vampire Diaries "Companion Series"?

The Vampire Diaries - CW to Produce 'Companion Series'

Some interesting news coming from E!Online. The recent success of has prompted The CW to have Kevin Williamson, an executive producer for The Vampire Diaries, develop what's being called a "companion series" for The Vampire Diaries. Apparently the new show won't be considered a spin-off, nor will it be introduced in an episode of The Vampire Diaries (like they tried to do with a potential Gossip Girl spin-off about Lily, which prompted a special 1980s episode). Kevin Williamson has been hired as the writer for this new series, and apparently Julie Plec, another executive producer on The Vampire Diaries, is also rumored to be involved.

According to insiders, Williamson's new project is a one-hour drama about a group of researchers who investigate paranomal happenings.

It is not being called a spinoff but rather a companion to The Vampire Diaries.
This is not a back-door pilot, meaning it won't be aired as a special episode of Vampire Diaries. It's unknown at this time if any of the TVD characters would cross over to the new series, and details are still being decided, however it isn't likely, as this companion project is currently considered a separate entity.

Re: Vampire Diaries "Companion Series"?

Well, the whole "supernatural investigator" genre dates back to the Victorian era at least and has been a staple of horror fiction ever since. Carnacki the Ghost-Hunter, Jules de Grandin, etc.

No reason we can't get a hip, teen version.
