    Abstract

    Taking a postmodern critical approach, this collection of new essays explores The CW Network’s popular television drama The Vampire Diaries, taking in the complete original series (2009–2017), its spinoffs, source novels and fan fiction. Spanning three decades, TVD has engaged its predominantly teenage audience with storylines around love, friendship, social politics and gender roles. Contributors traverse the franchise’s metamorphosis to suit the complex tastes of an early 21st century audience.
