The Vampire Diaries is an American horror-romance television series that debuted on the CW Network in September of 2009. The show is based upon a series of novels written by L.J. Smith. Its tone and story-structure was largely inspired by the popularity of the Twilight film series. The first half of season one ran for ten episodes in 2009 and resumed airing in January, 2010. The story follows the journey of a young woman named Elena Gilbert of the fictional town of Mystic Falls who finds herself the object of affection of two vampire brothers, Stefan and Damon Salvatore. Both brothers take sharp note of the fact that Elena bears a strong resemblance to a 19th century vampire named Katherine Pierce - a woman who had garnered the affections of both men.
