The CW has announced that it’s giving early renewals to a few of its heavy hitters – including renewing teen-thriller The Vampire Diaries for a fourth season. While fans of the show are unquestionably excited, the news of the series return comes as no big surprise, considering The Vampire Diaries is the highest-rated scripted show on the network.
Based on the series of books by L.J. Smith, the third season of The Vampire Diaries
featured young heroine Elena Gilbert (Nina Dobrev) in deeper danger and even more romantic entanglement with vampire-brothers Stefan (Paul Wesley) and Damon Salvatore (Ian Somerhalder).
