Why Is The Vampire Diaries Leaving Netflix?

The Vampires Diaries is the longest running supernatural show. It originally aired on The CW from 2009 to 2017. However, the show will no longer be available on Netflix. It had its last say on September 4 and all eight seasons (171 episodes) have now been taken down. 

The Vampire Diaries was first added to Netflix in 2011. There was a deal signed between Netflix and The CW that saw full seasons of any CW series made available on Netflix after complete eight days from its season finale. However in 2019, CW’s parent companies decided to withdraw from the deal and rather focused on stacking up their own streaming platforms. For example, HBO Max and Paramount+. 

The deal also highlighted towards each show that CW licensed to Netflix shall remain exclusive to Netflix only for five years. As of yet, TVD spinoffs, The Originals (ended in 2018) and Legacies (ended in 2022) will still be available to stream on Netflix. They might shift from Netflix to HBO Max in 2023 and 2027.  

The Vampire Diaries

Plot: Vampire brothers, Stefan and Damon Salvatore, battle for the affection of selfless teenager, Elena Gilbert. Stefan is the good and kind-hearted brother that feeds on animal blood to keep from killing anybody, and Damon is the selfish and dangerous older brother that feeds on human blood carelessly. Elena is brought into the supernatural world that she was hidden from as a girl. She surrounds herself with a circle of human and supernatrual friends, ready to fight the hunters and enemies that wait for them in the shadows.

TVD’s cast includes Nina Dobrev, Paul Wesley, Ian Somerhalder, Steven R. McQueen, Sara Canning and Kat Graham. Many more are introduced throughout the seasons. 

Walking Dead Season 11 Netflix

The Walking Dead series first aired on AMC in 2010. Since then, it has become one of the longest running series on AMC. In August 2021, the franchise released the first episode of its 11th and final season. Most fans still watch The Walking Dead during the Sunday Night viewings but some fans still prefer binge watching the whole series until it releases on Netflix. 

The exact release date for The Walking Dead is still unclear because the season was divided into three parts. As things stand right now, it seems likely that AMC will make the fans wait until it releases all episodes associated with season 11 on their platform. Only then will the episodes premier on Netflix. Its just a prediction right now, things could change.
