The CW have been watching the progress of the AMC shows very closely and have been particularly impressed with their hit zombie show The Walking Dead. One of the biggest aspects of The Walking Dead is the fact that no character is safe and they gladly kill of fans favourites, keeping the series fresh.
This has struck a chord with execs over at The CW, as they want to liven up some of their more popular shows, in a bid to stop them going stale. Take The Vampire Diaries, for instance. The Vampire Diaries season four has already seen the death of Jeremy (Steven R. McQueen), who was one of the original characters from the first season.
Now it seems that they are not finished there, as The Vampire Diaries is now set to kill of one of the shows major characters. The main focus point of The Vampire Diaries has been the love triangle between Elena (Nina Dobrev), Damon (Ian Somerhalder) and Stefan (Paul Wesley), but that is about to change.
It has been revealed by a show insider, that The Vampire Diaries is going to kill of Paul Wesley's Stefan, to give the show a whole new dynamic and show fans that they too, are not afraid to kill off their top guys. It is also claimed that there will also be a major death in the season five premiere. We cannot wait!
