The Vampire Diaries completed eight seasons, and the latest eighth season released back in October 2016 and concluded in March 2017. Afterward, it was released on Netflix a few months later. As we know, when a show hits Netflix, it gets more attention. Let us get to The Vampire Diaries Season 9 update, renewal, trailer, and updates.
So, the Netflix audience, along with the television following audience started asking whether there will be a ninth season or not. However, the answer is not positive this time as the show was canceled. It was announced by creator Julie Plec, but she said that the show boss was happy with the ninth season. However, she said that they all have discussed and decided to conclude the show.
The Vampire Diaries Season 9 Update
As of March 12, 2020, there is no new development on whether there will be a ninth season of Vampire Diaries or not, but we do have some details about its spin-off show Legacies. We have seen a lot of crossovers in the first season of Legacies with Vampire Diaries, but nobody knows how will the second season go. However, if you have not found a reason to watch Legacies even if you are a Vampire Diaries fan, you might get one ahead.
We saw Bonnie and Damon stuck together, and that was the reason they were together. They were not good together until it happened, and we are supposed to see something similar with Hope and Clarke next season, which might resemble your Vampire Diaries scenes. Also, there are rumors of Caroline joining the cast in the next season, where even Matt Davis wanted Julie Plec on the show! If it happens, I am sure it would be a happy moment for all the Vampire Diaries fans.

The Vampire Diaries Season 9 Cast Update
On top of that, Ian Somerhalder, who played Damon Salvatore in the show, has also denied playing the character again. He even joked that he might not be able to play the youthful vampire anymore. Also, Nina Dobrev, who plays Elena Gilbert and Paul Wesley, who stars as Stefan Salvatore have also refused to play the characters again.
Moreover, Julie Plec has also discarded all the rumors about the Damon Salvatore spin-off. She said that she is not working on any spin-off, but she was positive about something related in the future. Nonetheless, we have already seen a spin-off called The Originals.
Additionally, many believe that the writer and a few actors’ absences might not cancel the show. The argument seems reasonable as there is no confirmation from The CW about the cancellation. When Somerhalder said that Vampire Diaries season 8 would be the end of the series, he had to apologize. Then he stated that he would be leaving the show, but the show might continue! Hence, there is still hope for the ninth season, at least until The CW does not respond.
