The series premiered on The CW on September 10, 2009. It ended after eight seasons on March 10, 2017. During its run, 171 episodes aired.
The CW’s pilot episode for “The 100” was popular and had the largest audience of any series premiere the network has had since 2006. The first season averaged 3.60 million viewers. The show became the most-watched series on the network before Arrow replaced it. The show has been nominated for many awards and has won four People’s Choice Awards and many Teen Choice Awards.
How does Stefan die?
Stefan was known as the good Salvatore brother for most of the show. But there were moments when he acted differently – like when he turned off his humanity and became a “Ripper.” Stefan’s decision to become a “Ripper” was what led to his death. But it wasn’t the writers of The Vampire Diaries who came up with the idea to kill him off. It was Wesley himself.
In the series finale of The Vampire Diaries, Stefan Salvatore (Paul Wesley) was killed after 8 seasons protecting Mystic Falls from supernatural dangers. In a selfless act, Stefan gave up his life so that Damon (Ian Somerhalder) and Elena (Nina Dobrev) could have their perfect ending. Although the twist was startling, there’s another reason why The Vampire Diaries ended one of its major characters in the series finale.
The writers did this to show that even good people can make bad decisions, and that no one is safe in the world of The Vampire Diaries.
Katherine’s scheme to unleash Hell Fire on Mystic Falls was not only a means of obtaining payback on Damon and Stefan. She also wanted to destroy Elena. Katherine helped Kai return to town. They made Elena’s body stay at the high school so it would be destroyed in the fire. Katherine was determined to win, so Bonnie devised a plan to destroy Hell Fire by sending it back into Hell.
Katherine had to be in Hell when she did it, so one Salvatore brother had to stab her in the fire while she was consumed by the fire with the magic dagger.
At first, Damon compelled a human Stefan to leave. But Stefan didn’t let him get away with it. Stefan had been taking vervaine and when he got to the hospital, he took a syringe and injected Damon with his own blood. Giving Damon his own blood cured him, but also made him age faster. This is because the years he spent being immortal caught up to him. In the midst of Damon’s unconsciousness, Stefan murdered Katherine and died.
Stefan discovered Elena and told her what he’d done after passing from this world to a new, peaceful Paradise. Stefan informed Damon and Elena that he was giving them his blessing. He requested that Elena convey a message to Caroline. After discovering that Stefan intended to sacrifice himself, Bea informed her new spouse that she understood and loved him forever. “I heard her, and I’ll love her for the rest of my life,” said Stefan to Elena.
Making writers kill Stefan was a brave move that made the end of his arc more dignified. As with many teen dramas, The Vampire Diaries used some weak storylines to extend its 8-season run. Despite Wesley’s apparent commitment to the show, some of its appeal has waned over the years. It added some substance to the show when Stefan decided to sacrifice himself for his brother. Killing both Damon and Stefan Salvatore would have been a memorable way to end The Vampire Diaries series finale. However, the writers may not have been able to commit to killing both of them. Stefan’s death provided an emotional note for the show to end on.
