This sounds like a lot of fun!!!
During a recent interview, Kevin Williamson spoke about his new pilot The Secret Circle, and he's made it a point to emphasize that it's an entirely separate project from The Vampire Diaries:
"My biggest fear is I don't want to be split between the two shows and I don't want to water myself down and hurt either."
“My goal is for Julie [Plec] and I to stay focused on The Vampire Diaries, and Andrew Miller and his team will be in place and we will help and guide him along the way [on The Secret Circle]. I’m not going to step away from my vampires. I’m too invested at this point; it’s too much of a family for me to walk away from, but there’s room in our day for me to help guide The Secret Circle along the way.”
And here's Kevin on the similarities between the two shows:
“Those similarities exist, but the mythology is completely different."
“The witches in The Vampire Diaries are not in the same universe. We’re not connecting them; there are no crossovers. There are no vampires and werewolves in the witch world in Secret Circle.”
“You’ll watch us build another mythology based on L.J. Smith’s books that will become as twisty and turny as The Vampire Diaries [is] but with a whole new story. There’s an epic love story that we hint at in the pilot that is going to blow up about two soulmates. It’s not as violent as The Vampire Diaries or as scary.”
We're glad to hear that Kevin will continue to focus on Vampire Diaries as he pursues this next project.
And yes, as we said before, we'll def tune in for this new show. Sounds pret-ty good to us!
Are U looking forward to Kevin Williamson's Secret Circle? Would U like to see it crossover with Vampire Diaries?
