The CW sets 2013 premiere dates, including ‘Supernatural,’ ‘Arrow’ and ‘TVD’

This is technically old news but I thought you guys might be interested to know the premiere date that CW set for TVD even though we’re still uncertain as to when our beloved Michael will be returning to the show.

Last season, the CW kicked things off in the fall with October premiere dates, and as the network announced Monday, June 24, it will be doing the same with its 2013 shows.

Once again, most of the CW shows will be premiering in October (with “America’s Next Top Model: Guys and Girls” premiering Aug. 2), beginning with “Hart of Dixie” and “Beauty and the Beast” on Oct. 7, and ending with “The Carrie Diaries'” season 2 premiere on Friday, Oct. 25. The “Vampire Diaries” spin-off, “The Originals,” and “Supernatural” (on its new night) won’t be premiering until a week after most of the CW’s series, on Tuesday, Oct. 15. The network still has yet to schedule shows like “Nikita” (which will be airing its shortened final season) and its new series, “The 100″ and “Star-Crossed” for the late fall and midseason.

Check out the CW’s full fall premiere schedule for 2013:

Thursday, Oct. 10

8:00 p.m.: “The Vampire Diaries”

9:00 p.m.: “Reign”


TVD spoilers from TVLine

Last week TVLine sat down with The Vampire Diaries executive producer Julie Plec to talk about what happened in the season 4 finale and what could possibly happen in season 5. Thankfully, she mentioned Michael’s character Tyler and a return for the next season. Read on to find out what she said:

TVLINE | It seemed like Caroline and Tyler are poised for a reunion. Will Michael Trevino be back next season as a regular?
Michael Trevino is still under contract. When he’ll return, we can’t say yet. He is going to have the opportunity to return to Caroline’s life in Mystic Falls. The question is, will he want to take it, given everything he’s been through since he’s been gone, which will be fun for us to learn — like what kind of life he’s been leading on the run.

It’s been awhile since we’ve seen Michael Trevino, who plays Tyler Lockerwood on The Vampire Diaries, so what’s he been up to and will he ever return?

‘The Vampire Diaries’ says goodbye: Will Michael Trevino and Steven R. McQueen be back?

Feb 16 • by Queen • 4 CommentsArticles, Spoilers, Television, The Vampire Diaries

It definitely, definitely wasn’t a Happy Valentine’s Day for “Vampire Diaries” fans tonight. Though we’ve grown accustomed to saying goodbye to beloved characters at the end of every season, we thought we were safe after Kol’s demise. Not so much.

In tonight’s episode, all was not well in Mystic Falls… or on the mysterious Island where the gang presumed Silas is buried. The episode ended with Continue Reading

‘Vampire Diaries’ Boss Talks Klaus’ Holiday Massacre, the Sire Bond and More

Dec 30 • by Queen • Comments OffArticles, Interview, Spoilers, The Vampire Diaries

Longtime The Vampire Diaries fans might have their suspicions that the CW hit only decided to stage a Christmas episode as an excuse to couple scary mass murder with delightful holiday cheer, but showrunnerJulie Plec tells that the series’ first holiday outing in four seasons was more of a happy scheduling coincidence.

“We don’t do seasons in Mystic Falls,” Plec says. “We try not to be specific about a seasonal timeline, but it felt like we’re four seasons in, this is the first time we’ve had an episode air this close to Christmas — usually we’re on hiatus. Won’t it be fun to give a little bit of a holiday flavor to this episode so that we can do our great juxtaposition opera of blood and mayhem against the beauty and nostalgia of holiday music?”

Klaus’ rage over Tyler’s betrayal certainly played out beautifully, capping off his evil tirade by drowning a drunk Mayor Lockwood in the town square. But in addition to the loss of a beloved character (RIP), “O Come, All Ye Faithful” piled on a lot of mythology and plenty of plot details to think about until the show comes back from its holiday hiatus on Jan. 17. Here’s what Plec had to say about our own burning questions, which of course multiplied as soon as we hung up the phone with the TVD boss lady.

What’s Tyler’s mindset once he finds out about his mother?
Tyler’s first order of business actually is to mourn. This is the last thing he ever expected that would happen, and the loss of his mom is a pretty powerful thing for him. When we come back we’re going to see he’s not actually doing so well. He’s got some stuff to deal with before he’s going to pull himself together.

Is it safe to say the cure is the last thing on his mind?
Oh yeah, for sure. He’s if anything reeling and looking over his shoulder wondering if Klaus is there to chop his head off. Also, I’m sure [he’s] trying to figure out if there’s any move he can make or anything he can do to regain the upper hand against Klaus, although it looks pretty bleak. It’s not without its solutions, but it ain’t pretty.

How is the state of his relationship with Caroline?
It’s currently a little bit tested because of the events of this episode, but thankfully they were able to make things right with each other before tragedy struck. Caroline’s going to be more concerned about him when we come back and really want to reconnect with him and make him open up to her so that she can help him heal from this experience. Ultimately, both of them as we get deeper into the next chapter, will have to finally sort of face the Klaus problem head on and figure out what to do.

What will the next chapter of this season focus on?
This next chapter is all about that hunter’s mark and trying to complete it and trying to get our team to the location of the cure, which the more we learn about it and the more we’ll learn about Silas the more we’ll recognize there’s extreme jeopardy attached to even seeking it out in the first place. Very quickly our teams will be divided and realize that they all have different agendas, different wants, and different motives. It’s going to be a little bit of a race to who gets there first. As Rebekah says in the next episode, whoever gets to it first decides what to do with it, how to use it, who to use it on, who not to, how to control it. It’s a power play, and she wants to come out on top.

‘Vampire Diaries’ midseason finale postmortem: The fallen speaks!

Dec 30 • by Queen • Comments OffArticles, Interview, The Vampire Diaries

A few weeks ago Susan Walters (Carol Lockwood) did an interview with EW about Carol’s death in the mid-season finale and what shooting her last episode was like. Here’s what she had to say about Michael/Tyler:

SPOILER ALERT! If you haven’t watched this week’s episode of The Vampire Diaries (our full recap), stop reading now. Tyler’s scheme to take out Klaus didn’t exactly go according to plan. Who paid the price?

Tyler’s mother, Mayor Carol Lockwood (Susan Walters), who viewers have known since season 1. After Hayley told Klaus about the unsired hybrids’ betrayal as part of her deal with Professor Shane, Klaus massacred the 12 of them to the tune of “O Holy Night.” Then, with blood still covering him, Klaus found tipsy Carol at the fountain in the town square. He wanted to hurt Tyler, and drowning his mother, while the soundtrack played “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas,” would do that. Walters spoke to EW after the East Coast airing.

The drunk scenes must have been fun to film though.
It was definitely fun. The other two scenes I was in, the scene with Tyler and the scene with Klaus, they weren’t necessarily fun to film because they were both really sad scenes for me, but actually, the scene where they show me drowning underwater was a hoot because it was done in a tank on the stage.

What was it like shooting your last scene with Michael Trevino?
What was hard about that scene was that I did not want Susan’s knowledge to get in the way of Carol’s knowledge. But, if you think about what Carol Lockwood’s going through, her son is basically saying he’s going away. For me, that just broke my heart because No. 1, I’m a mom, and I know how much I miss my daughters even when they’re gone at school for a week, or two weeks, a month. And then knowing that her son’s gonna be in harm’s way. And let’s be honest, I’m talking about the supernatural, so I had all that going on. And then the fact that she’s already lost her husband, which I’m referencing in the scene. They didn’t show it, which made perfect sense not to show it, but I would have to stop during that scene. Michael Trevino is such a great actor. He makes me cry so easily. I’m always like, “Can I just take you with me on my jobs?” So I just had to keep stopping and pulling it together to get through the scene. I was also feeling like, Ohmygod, Carol Lockwood has to go home to that giant house on that giant piece of property all alone. It really strikes a chord with me, but of course, it’s not something that everybody watching the Vampire Diaries is really thinking about. You know what I mean?

They’re not watching from a parent’s perspective.
Yeah. So really what was on my mind was this poor woman, and the fact that she’s saying goodbye to this kid, and I’m a nervous wreck when my kids leave to drive to downtown Atlanta. So it was a really sweet scene. And I just love Michael. We haven’t worked together that much, which is interesting because I play his mother, but a lot of times, I’m working with other people in the town. But the times we’ve gotten to work together, it’s very easy to relate to him. I don’t have sons, so it was so much fun for me to have a son.

Vampire Diaries Boss on Stefan’s Anger, Jeremy’s Killer Urges and Caroline and Tyler’s Future

Dec 30 • by Queen • Comments OffArticles, News, Spoilers, The Vampire Diaries

Death, break-ups and some killer urges plagued The Vampire Diaries winter finale earlier this month.

After the eventful episode, TVLine spoke with executive producer Julie Plec about the loss of Tyler’s mom, Damon and Elena’s struggles and the future of Caroline and Klaus.

And now we have even more scoop from that chat, so read on to find out how the Christmas outing will affect the Salvatore brothers’ relationship, whether Caroline and Tyler are going to make it through this rough patch and what’s in store for Jeremy, romantically and professionally (he’s a hunter now, you know).

TVLINE | Tyler’s grown a lot this season. Will recent events help him mature further or set him back?
It’s a setback in that his confidence came from this feeling that he had a place and he had people that were looking to him. As his mom said, “You’re a leader of people like your father was.” He was really growing into that, and to feel like they all paid the price for that confidence will definitely set him back a bit. The question is, how will he rebound from that?

TVLINE | Are Caroline and Tyler OK?
Tyler’s going to struggle, and Caroline’s going to struggle in trying to help him. But if there’s one thing those two have proven again and again, it’s that when situations are at their most dire and their most extreme, they find a way to be there for each other. I think we can rest easy that that won’t have changed yet.

Tyler Lockwood: The unsung hero of Mystic Falls

Nov 26 • by Queen • Comments OffArticles, The Vampire Diaries

If you’re an aspiring actor, there are certain shows you probably don’t really want to be cast on. For example, if you’re cast on any kind of ‘CSI’ or ‘Law & Order,’ there is a good chance that you might be a murderer, rapist or murderapist.

If you’re cast on ‘The Vampire Diaries,’ you’re either going to be turned into a vampire and killed, eaten for dinner and killed, have your heart ripped out of your chest and thus killed, or be killed in a ritual sacrifice. There’s the slim chance you’ll stick around for a couple of episodes and get to makeout with Damon Salvatore before being killed, but all in all – it’s not a very friendly show for guest stars.

And if you’re cast as a family member of one of the main cast members, you better believe Continue Reading

‘Vampire Diaries’ scoop: Will Caroline choose between Tyler and Klaus?

Nov 3 • by Queen • Comments OffArticles, The Vampire Diaries

Last season, Elena had to decide between the two men in her life. Now, it seems, it’s Caroline’s turn.

“She’s going to have to choose,” said Michael Trevino, who plays Tyler, when we caught up with him on the Atlanta set recently. “At the end of the day I know she wants to be with Tyler, but there is something intriguing about being with Klaus and how powerful he is.”

While Trevino thinks there’s something brewing between Caroline and Klaus, co-star Candice Accola isn’t quite as convinced. “I still think it’s hilarious fans want Caroline and Klaus together,” she said. “They’re so different.” (Hey, opposites attract right?)

Joseph Morgan, on the other hand, is more optimistic about the pairing. And he has good reason to be. If last week’s episode was any indication, it looks like Caroline and Tyler’s relationship will be tested by the arrival of his friend (and possible old flame), Hayley (Phoebe Tonkin).

“Caroline is a little concerned with Hayley being in town,” said Tonkin, who described her character as a free spirit. “But she wants to trust Tyler.”
