Between the end of The Vampire Diaries in March and the upcoming series finale of Pretty Little Liars, the world is in serious need of another epic teen drama. So, why not create a crossover between the two beloved shows?
If fans have it their way, that’s exactly what should happen, and PLL creator I. Marlene King is giving everyone hope that it could happen. On Tuesday (June 13), King tweeted TVD boss Julie Plec to suggest that the two get together to discuss making TV.
“Hey @julieplec, I feel like we are always 2 passing in the night. Wanna grab a [coffee] and talk about making [television],” King tweeted on Tuesday causing a Twitter frenzy in the process.
Okay, let’s all take a minute and breathe here. While he have no idea what a vampire-Liars crossover would actually entail, we definitely like the idea of these two fierce showrunners teaming up for a project. Sure, they would probably write a TV script that was totally different than the worlds of Mystic Falls and Rosewood, but we’re all for a TVD and PLL revival in the form of a spinoff.
Could you imagine, the Liars living with vampires? What about one of them — most likely Aria or Spencer because of Aria’s ties to education with Ezra, and Spencer’s off-the-charts smarts — teaching a class at the Salvatore School for the Young and Gifted? It would be wonderful!
Before we get too ahead of ourselves, however, we should point out that King didn’t actually say the two should talk about making a TV show — but rather that they should discuss making TV (which is an important distinction, since the latter does not imply a collaboration). That said, we can’t help but hope that even if the two simply catch up and talk about what it’s like to work on making their individual series, it might lead to them working together. Plec has yet to respond to King’s invitation, but with the season 4 finale of The Originals getting so close, we understand that she’s busy. Here’s hoping she gets back to her soon, though, because we need to find out where this might head!
After all, King and Plec working together seems like a no-brainer. Would you tune in for a Vampire Diaries and Pretty Little Liars crossover?
Pretty Little Liars airs on Tuesdays at 8 p.m. on Freeform.
