Diehard fans of both The Vampire Diaries and the series of books the show is based on know that they aren’t the same thing. Certain elements from the novels haven’t made it into the show — but executive producer Julie Plec says that doesn’t mean they won’t borrow in the future. (Besides, she adds, some of what works in the books comes off, well, a bit “cheesy” on screen!)

Plec sat down with TVGuide.com on the Atlanta set of the CW series to talk about the relationship between the books and the show. What won’t make it to TV? Which relationship may not happen at all? Plus, Plec reveals she’s thinking of giving one couple more of a history.

‘Vampire Diaries’ exclusive: Kevin Williamson talks his potential companion series that’s ‘full of scary, horrible murder and surprises’

If you recently heard the potential companion series to The Vampire Diaries exec producers Kevin Williamson and Julie Plec (pictured) are in the early stages of developing described as “The X-Files meets Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” you may be imagining Alaric (Matt Davis) teaching history at a new high school. “That’s exactly what the show is not,” Williamson tells EW on the latest edition of the TV Insiders podcast, with a laugh. “That was the wrong characterization. I was like, ‘What is Buffy meets The X-Files?’ They’re completely at odds tonally. It’s neither. It’s set on a college campus. There’s a little bit of some paranormal investigation involved, but it’s more about the characters. It’s more about what Julie and I like to do, which is create a world of people. A young girl goes to college, and it turns out there’s a lot more going on.”

That’s all he wants to give away for now. “Warner Bros. doesn’t like us to talk about shows that may never happen,” he says, laughing again. “We don’t know if we’ll get it written in time, or if this will be for this year, next year…. But it’s just something we’re both very passionate about because we’ve got this whole world and this whole sort of mythology about this girl and this journey that she takes. It’s full of scary, horrible murder and surprises, and all the twists and turns that we love to do, but once again it is a story about epic love. That’s what we’re about here at The Vampire Diaries. And that’s sort of why you call it a ‘companion piece,’ is because you will see those similarities in the show. You know, a bunch of fun characters that you can visit every week and watch them go through all these scary, twisty story lines, but it all leads to some greater story about epic and tragic love.”

Julie Plec, executive producer of The Vampire Diaries talked to Jim Halterman about what’s coming on next week’s By the Light of the Moon episode.

‘Vampire Diaries By the Light of the Moon’ extended clip released by the CW

To start things off, Jim asked about Stefan (Paul Wesley) and Katherine (Nina Dobrev) being together in the cave, and what could that bring, because going by the episode’s preview, it doesn’t look good, at least not for Elena (also Nina Dobrev).

“The two of them together have never been a good thing since Katherine came to town and it’s certainly not going to be a good thing now.” Julie admitted. But, unfortunately, that’s as much info as she gave us on that subject.

The executive producer of The Vampire Diaries has admitted that she would like to develop more storylines for Matt and Jenna.

Julie Plec told Entertainment Weekly that she finds it difficult to write for the duo – played by Zach Roerig and Sara Canning – because they are unaware of the supernatural events in Mystic Falls.

“On a big picture level, you want to have human characters who don’t know things, because it keeps your world grounded,” she said. “It keeps a reality that’s hard to hold onto when everybody’s in the know about everything.

Vampire Diaries Executive Producers Talk Future of “Delena”

It’s no secret that a large contingent of very vocal “The Vampire Diaries” fans are rooting for Damon (Ian Somerhalder) and Elena (Nina Dobrev) to finally get together.

While Damon has admitted his feelings for Elena, she’s not exactly his biggest fan at the moment. After all, in the season premiere, he snapped her little brother’s neck – which can be kind of a mood killer for a girl.

I was on the scene at New York Comic-Con to chat with executive producers Julie Plec and Kevin Williamson about the future of the duo that a veritable army of Twitter fans refer to as “Delena.”

They definitely hear you guys. Plec loves reading fans’ tweets, recaps, and reviews about each episode. “One of the greatest things about this experience is that our fan base is very vocal,” she says. “The community runs very deep, and they’re very very supportive, and that’s good.”

Yesterday Kat Graham, Steven R. McQueen, Zach Roerig and Sara Canning took to the NY Comic Con stage with executive producers Julie Plec & Kevin Williamson to talk all things “Vampire Diaries.” And let me tell you, they did not disappoint. The day kicked off with sublime new footage that teased Caroline & Matt sharing a moment at The Masquerade Ball, Katherine & Mason sharing a bed (seriously hot) and Alaric & Jeremy sharing weapons.

Yes, that’s right — Elena’s little brother is about to come to the forefront in a big way over the next handful of episodes. Which was just one of the supreme spoilers to come out of Comic Con.
