Don't you hate when your favorite show ends or goes off the air.  It is so hard to find another long-running series to watch and really get into.  I was so sad when Vampire Diaries wrapped up recently, as it used to be a weekly ritual of mine to put the girls to bed early, make a cup of cocoa or tea, and snuggle up under a warm blanket on the couch in my comfy pajamas to watch a new episode.  My husband knew that when I was watching this show, I wasn't to be bothered as I really got into other show.  I always rooted for Elena and Stefan, and I found that as the seasons progressed, I found myself getting more excited about this amazing show.  Each of the characters had really well-developed story lines, and I found myself shifting my couple rooting at times. But, throughout the great series, one thing remained -- each and every episode was well written and the cast always delivered a stellar performance.  

I know I am not the only fan of this series, as I have been to a handful of comic-cons throughout the years, and this is one show many people were talking about, or flocking to buy merchandise from the series.  I have a nice collection of jewelry I have purchased online that characters in the show wore.  And, every time I reach for a necklace or pendant to wear, I can't help but think back to this series, and how it had a great run, and how lucky fans of this series are to have the different DVDs and Blu-ray/DVD collections available, so that we can relive all of our favorite moments from the series.  With 8 series there are many! :-)

If you have been collecting the individual seasons or bought the Season 1-6 DVD collection last year, you can now add to your Vampire Diaries set to have a complete series collection by picking up the The Vampire Diaries: The Eighth and Final Season, which features all 16 one-hour episodes from this final series, along with many extras including the 2016 Comic-Con panel talk with the cast and deleted scenes.  

Did you get hooked on this popular series through streaming services and now want to own the complete series on DVD and Blu-ray?  Then, you will want to pick up the new VAMPIRE DIARIES: THE COMPLETE SERIES (DVD/Blu-Ray), which released back in June.  It includes all eight seasons and tons of bonus features including featurettes and deleted scenes.

The folks at Warner Bros. sent the VAMPIRE DIARIES: THE COMPLETE SERIES (DVD/Blu-Ray) for me to review, and I have been binge watching this series while doing my blogging in the evenings.  I love watching the early seasons, as they really were some of the best.  I am up to season 4, and look forward each night to watching a couple episodes of this popular show, which will go down in history as one of the best and longest running series.  It had followers of all ages, and fans of the show still go crazy for any Vampire Diaries, including these recent DVD/Blu-Ray releases.

So, if you have a Vampire Diaries fan in your life, or you loved the show and don't have the complete collection (all eight seasons), you will want to pick the 8th and final season DVD/Blu-ray or the complete series today.  This is definitely one DVD collection you will enjoy and watch over and over again for years to come.


More about this series and these two DVD/Blu-ray Releases:

"The Vampire Diaries sinks its teeth into its final season with more high-stakes romance, adventure and drama than ever before as Warner Bros. Home Entertainment releases The Vampire Diaries: The Eighth and Final Season on Blu-ray™ and DVD, on June 13, 2017. Fans can devour all 16 one-hour episodes from season eight and feast on over one hour of gripping extras — including a brand-new featurette, the 2016 Comic-Con Panel and deleted scenes. The Vampire Diaries: The Eighth and Final Season will be priced to own on DVD at $39.99 SRP and on Blu-ray including Digital HD at $44.98 SRP.  Both formats have an order due date of May 9, 2017. The eighth season of The Vampire Diaries is also currently available to own on Digital HD.

In season eight, we find Damon (Ian Somerhalder) and Enzo (Michael Malarkey) continuing on their killing spree, both following the commands of a sinister and unnatural force.  While Bonnie (Kat Graham), Stefan (Paul Wesley) and Caroline (Candice King) are grieving their loss, they team up to investigate who or what may be the cause of their disappearance at the end of season seven.  Alaric (Matt Davis) joins the search and continues to look for clues on how they escaped the Armory vault, and Matt’s (Zach Roerig) family history will reveal a deeper connection to Mystic Falls and how he may be able to save the town from destruction.

The Vampire Diaries: The Series will also be available on June 13th on DVD and Blu-ray. The sets will retail for $189.99 SRP for the DVD set and $234.99 SRP for the Blu-ray set. Both sets represent a substantial savings over purchasing all eight seasons individually.

With Blu-ray’s unsurpassed picture and sound, The Vampire Diaries: The Eighth and Final Season Blu-ray release will include 1080p Full HD Video with DTS-HD Master Audio for English 5.1. The 3-disc Blu-ray will feature a Hi-definition Blu-ray, and a Digital HD copy of all 16 episodes from season eight.

Based on the series of books by L.J. Smith, The Vampire Diaries is from Bonanza Productions Inc., Outerbanks Entertainment and Alloy Entertainment in association with Warner Bros. Television and CBS Television Studios. The executive producers are Kevin Williamson (The Following, Scream, Dawson's Creek), Julie Plec (The Originals, Kyle XY), and Leslie Morgenstein (Pretty Little Liars, The Originals, Gossip Girl).
