‘Vampire Diaries’ Spin-Off in the Works?

Good news for Vampire Diaries fans: the show’s creator, Kevin Williamson, has reportedly been tapped to create a spin-off from the series for the CW.

E! Online reports that Kevin and the CW are developing a “companion” series for the hit vampire-centric show.

According to insiders, the new one-hour drama will follow a group of investigators whose speciality is dealing with paranormal activity. The project is still in the development stages and insiders say that it is unclear if any of the TVD characters will cross over between the two shows, but the new potential show has already snagged TVD executive producer Julie Plec.

According to E!, the currently unnamed project will be under consideration for the CW’s upcoming 2011-2012 season.

Will this show be as additive as TVD? Share your thoughts in the comments.
