Why The Vampire Diaries still so popular?
The Vampire Diaries is still so popular because of it’s plot and cast. Elena’s love-life and struggle against the supernatural hooked fans across the world. Also Damon, played by Ian Somerhalder, hooked many teenagers.
Damon’s and Stefan’s brotherly bond is also one of the main reasons teens are hooked on this teen supernatural show. No matter how much they fought each other when it came to protecting each other, they would die for each other. Their brotherly bond was unbreakable and in the end, they both were ready to sacrifice themselves but Stefan gave up his life to protect Damon.

Damon and Stefan loved Elena, in first two seasons, Elena dated Stefan, but Stefan left with an original hybrid Klaus, to protect Elena and Damon. So things changed, Elena realized that she got feelings for Damon even though she was dating Stefan. When Klaus wanted Elena’s blood to make more hybrids, Damon and Stefan even took on an Original even though the Originals were 100x stronger than them.
The Originals showed up after Season 1 when Klaus found out that there is another doppelganger, and her death can help Klaus break free from the werewolf curse. However, Damon and Stefan managed to save Elena with the help of Elijah, Klaus’s brother. In Season 3, the whole Original family was awake and was roaming the Earth, but after Rebekah killed Elena to save her family from Alaric, who became an unkillable vampire, left Mystic Falls. They started living in New Orleans, their former home-town. That’s where the TVD spinoff “The Originals” starts from.
