The Secret Circle EP Andrew Miller didn’t know his show was being canceled this morning when he phoned EW to talk about last night’s season finale and tease where a second season would take the witches of Chance Harbor if they were granted one.

On a fast-moving supernatural series that prides itself on shocking deaths, surprising resurrections, and gruesome special effects, a simple 15-second kiss managed to spark some of the biggest fandemonium yet. The romantic tension between The Vampire Diaries' lead characters Damon (Ian Somerhalder) and Elena (Nina Dobrev) had been building over two years and 53 episodes. Then, last month, executive producers Kevin Williamson and Julie Plec finally decided to give fans what they had been clamoring for since the very first season: a proper kiss. To pull it off, they knew it had to be organic — not just for the characters and the story, but for the show's two very vocal and very divided fan bases: those who wanted Elena to rekindle her eternal flame with vampire soul mate Stefan (Paul Wesley), and those who were dying to see her take the next step with Stefan's undead older brother, Damon. ''It's one of those things that you want to be able to defend,'' explains Williamson, who says the kiss was intended to thank Damon and Elena fans for watching and waiting. ''But even more importantly, you'd rather not defend it. You want it to feel real and right and natural by all the audience.''

Excellent news for fans of those hot bloodsuckers on the CW: The network has picked up a fourth season of The Vampire Diaries.
The CW also gave a thumbs-up to an eighth season of Supernatural and a fifth year of 90210. The network has already picked up another installment of America’s Next Top Model.
No word yet on the future of some of CW’s other shows, like Gossip Girl, Ringer, or Nikita. The CW will present its fall lineup to advertisers later this month in New York.
Somehow, for a series packed with vampires, werewolves, witches, hybrids (and yes, even the occasional ghost), it’s a love triangle between two undead brothers, Damon (Ian Somerhalder) and Stefan (Paul Wesley), and one very mortal girl, Elena (Nina Dobrev), that gets The Vampire Diaries fans the most riled up. (And judging from the chemistry in our cover photos, it’s not hard to see why. Check out collectors’ covers No. 2 and 3 after the jump.)
When executive producers Kevin Williamson and Julie Plec decided that they were finally ready for bad-boy Damon to share a legitimate kiss with Elena — after more than two years of buildup — they knew it would have to satisfy two avid fan bases: those who wanted to see Elena
get with Damon, and those who were still holding out hope for her to work things out with soul mate, Stefan. READ MORE ON EW.COM >> /// Original article by Nuzhat Naoreen for Entertainment Weekly Magazine.
