Vampires don’t really exist, they are myth created for entertainment. And before you go through my list, I want to confess that I am not a big fan of T.V. serial dramas. But yes, I do love to watch horror serials and thus I have just shared a list of vampire T.V. series that most of us love to watch or some of you might watch them after reading this.
- THE VAMPIRE DIARIES (2009-Present)
The Vampire Diaries (2009-Present) is horror series about a teenage girl, Elena Gilbert who loves Stefan Salvatore (a vampire). But their relationship becomes complicated when Stefan’s older brother (who was turned into a vampire against his will) returns for a revenge. It has a teen plot and a love triangle but don’t compare it with Twilight as because Vampire Diaries is more violent and darker and it also provides human beings a chance to defend themselves and fight back. Season 7 is set to release on 8 October this year.
